No dimensions for sites, so may I assume it will hold 45' and not be in the lake?

They do have cable but it is rather limited.
I will throw my DirecTV HD antenna in the bay and have 2 extra outputs from it if anyone needs. And some extra cable.

Being a fairly new park and from what I can see in the satellite view, I'd say you should have no problem. If'n I'm wrong, you can have part of my spot. My RV is 25' and the toad is only 8'8".

Barb, just read the length of your toad. Kind of rules out stretching out and sleeping in I guess.

If we toad a bigger PU, Barb's toad would almost fit in the back like a golf cart.

Nope...but I'm now not sure it was affixed to the camper itself...just a layer in the mix of gunk applied over the years. My big concern is the cement like crusty stuck on permanently crud now.

If you haven't yet, try a bit of WD 40. I use it to remove tar, gum, dealer decals and other hard to remove glue.

I live not far from CL. Taking deer camp camper to woods and thought I'd stop by and look over the facilities. Are campsites long enough, fire rings bond fire ready, pavilion big enough for full size orchestra or just a three peace band?

This mutant would like to know!

Wow, 7 months to go and look at all the mutated excitement. I can only imagine what this thread is going to be like next month, and the month after, and the month after, and then there will be March to mutantly ponder.

Oh boy!

Once the curiosity is over we may not have anything to ponder, guess we will have to plan another, or the IRV2 National Rally!

Have you attempted to use a heat gun? May work if the crud is not concrete dry. The only chemical that I can think of that might work is a strong marine paint stripper. Since the roof may be aluminum, stay away from any paint stripper with caustic soda (lye) in it. The aluminum gets sort of frosty fuzzy on the surface when attacked by lye. And of course if the aluminum is thin .... well .... goodbye!

Different, however if you have a silicone based crud. Scraping and scratching is probably the only way to get most of it off.

If you have silicone residual on any surface after scraping, try pure naphtha (also labeled as VM&P naphtha). Wash it on, dry rag it off. Do it again just to be sure. Paint does not like to stick on top of even the thinnest film of silicone residual.

Silicone does have its place for small crack sealing, but it seems to be misused frequently to slather over large gaps as a filler. Instead of silicone sealant under Fantastic fan rims, I used white butyl rubber. It can be painted over with a little more success than silicone. However as with anything that does a good job of sealing, the butyl is sticky as heck. Gets all over your fingers and before you know it you are cursing that you ever tried it. LOL Use good old mineral spirits paint thinner to clean up the mess.

Sena and Lily stretch out and sleep great in Smarty. I guess it's best if I don't. But for driving it's amazingly roomy. It's actually just half a car. They left out the back seat and trunk. It makes a great toad at only 1840 pounds, but I don't off road with it. A Wrangler it ain't.
