Mike,
If you do not have the Andersen hitch yet, their factory is in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I stopped there last year for the correct brackets for my BlackJack.

Myron-
Thanks for the heads-up. On the Great Sand Dunes website there is a photo of a trailer that has to be at least as long as mine, so I'll give it a try.

Jim-
I have a Curt WDH that works quite well. Thanks anyway.

Right now I see yet another big black cloud approaching from the other side of Torrie Lake. This is unbelievable...

I was hoping to have dinner here on Thursday- http://bigtexan.com
they run shuttles to local campgrounds to pick you up. Scroll down and check out the lady who ate 3 of their 72 oz dinners with sides in 20 minutes....unbelievable.
If you download their menu you will see the Texas version of Poutine-
steak fries covered with 3 types of cheese, smoked brisket with sauce and onions.

Roger that... hope it wasn't parked at their very fine visitors center. I recall the campsite access roads were also quite narrow.

I was there years ago, but not camping. I just read their fine print that said there are a few spots that will take an RV up to 35 feet long. I'll try for one of those.

I remember being impressed with Great Sand Dune NP's attempts to accommodate the handicapped.

Someone turned the Colorado weather on it's end. March was warm and dry - May has reverted back to a wet and stormy winter.

I believe this is the place that will give you that 72 oz. steak if you can eat it within a certain amount of time (which I forgot). You go right ahead.

My plans may change, though; you never know.
Dude- check out Ojo Caliente, one hour north of Santa Fe.

Great, since there wasn't a meet at Moab this year it'll be good to say hello again. Maybe we can kick around a couple of ideas to help you sort out how best to install a range with an oven.
