Vancouver WA to Travis AFB

24 September-27 September 2015

We spent 2 nights at the VanMall RV park in Vancouver in order to get the Tow Bar refurbished and checked after 6 years and 60,000 miles. The only reason I chose this park was proximity to Roadmaster and not a place we would return. Rv's are very close and packed like sardines..could not extend our slide or open some of the bins. As for Roadmaster, glad we decided to deal directly with the factory rather than a repair service. We had an appointment for 11AM on 24th and job was finished by 2PM. Cost was reasonable at $140 for labor, refurbished tow bar and new cables.

26th September

Today we drove to Holiday RV Park in Medford/Phoenix OR for a 1 night stay. All sites are pull through, full hookups, walking distance to several restaurants and  on a creek.
