Five nights, two campgrounds, 1200 miles.

We stayed one night at https://gastateparks.org/ReedBingham on our way up to https://www.rosecreekcamping.com/ from central Florida and on the back. We had a lot of fun and also learned a lot more about camping in our little trailer. I'm posting just a short video of the last morning at Rose Creek Campground, but will be adding to this thread as time allows me. Takes me some time to write and post pics. For now enjoy the video.

Well, I'm adding a picture also. This was the first night at Reed Bingham. We have our little lighted Jack-o-Lantern on the power post. It was a warm night and we slept with the windows open. The trailer pulls good except it will sway side to side. I ended up moving as much weight to the front of the trailer before the return trip home which helped. We don't have a battery up front or the propane tank, so I'm sure that will help next time.

Being out in the woods when the leaves start falling is a cool thing to see. Up north here, it can come from a frost overnight and then when the sun hits the leaves come morning, they start dropping.

Thanks for sharing the video and pics. Good times.

On the camper swaying, we are here to help on this if you need it. Create a post in the Towing and Tow Vehicles and ask away. You are on the right track, there needs to be enough weight up front to create natural towing stability. The bottom limit is 10% of the total gross weight of the trailer, to be on the trailer tongue. For campers, it is better be in the 12 to 13% range as it gives you some freedom to move things around or you full LP tank goes empty. The smaller the camper, the more close you have watch this as a 30# change from up front to be put in the way back can have a negative effect and you not realize it. Once the trailer is balanced with enough weight up front, then comes other mechanical things to look for.

Thank you for the info. JohnB very good to now.

Looks like I took only a few pictures that are worthy of posting.

This photo is looking South-West from atop the lookout tower.


This shot is looking South from the trail to the lookout tower. It was sunny when we started the hike. Got overcast within a couple hours.


Here I am moving a tree off the trail. Hahaha


Frost on the roof of the car the morning we were leaving for Georgia.


A nice place to recline and enjoy the view. I wonder if this was left over from the floods?


We had to rent a big RV spot in Georgia because there was an event going on and this is what was available. The spare tire is on the Grand Marquis because the front tire went flat about twenty miles from the Campground.


In case anyone was wondering, we do unhook the trailer from the car when we set up.

Nice fall camping pic's!


I must say, you are really a powerful guy bench pressing that tree.

Thanks for sharing.
