That Didn't work out to well! Just a hopefully quick hello! This is my OLD FAITHFUL: 1988 E-350 CL-C. I have been doing the work camping gig since 1998. After an 8+ year stint for one employer who downsized in Oct. 09' Decided this was the life for me. No More Long-Term Emlpoyers. I have been working mostly up and down the East Coast, Gulf, Midwest and now the Central State of KY. Looking forward to the RV Group discussions. ED

Patty, i did some checking on using the Bellingham ferry to get to Alaska and it is quite expesive. For any vehicle an trailer over 21 feet it $ 105/foot from Bellingham to Whittier, AK. No you cannot get to your vehicle after sailing. You have to buy a ticket, RV ticket, room plus food.

 I don't have an RV yet but I am considering it. I worked at Signal Mountain Lodge last year and just got asked back for the 2012 season. Eventually I would like to see some other places but Signal was just too good all around to think about moving on--I hope I have quite a few good years left in me for more adventures. With a recent report on ABC News saying gas is going to hit near $5 a gallon by Memorial Day I may hold off and see what happens. But I am interested to know how well 5th wheels would hold up living in all the time and traveling as well.

I hope gas stays like this through the summer. Here in Oklahoma it is not $2.95/gal. and drifting down. Has any of you RV 'ers got a job this summer(2012)  in YNP. We're hoping to be hired on but are still waiting on word from Xanterra.

That would probably be a smart thing to do.  Less fuel also. (lightweight)  I pull mine with a 1 ton  Ford diesel.  And wouldn't you know it fuel is sky high.  Oh well, may have to borrow money to get to Glacier but am leaving Friday not matter what.  I ask them about all the snow and they said yep tons of snow but the roads are clear.  Sure enough they don't live in TX. Ha Ha!

Great to hear Billie. We are waiting on a new series of light weight 5th wheels in the 30 foot range and light enough for the heavy duty 1/2 ton pickup market. I have a Ford 3/4 ton pickup and can pull up to 9100 lbs. So just trying  to find the right match. What do you pull your 28 foot with?

love the Keystones.  I have a 5th wheel also.  28' Sportsman (KZ).  We purchased it from the original owner and had it about a year.  So far we love it.  I wish we would have gotten a longer one but I suppose if I had one 50' it wouldn't be big enough LOL.

We are looking at a Keystone Laredo 5th wheel trailer.
Comment by Billie Brown on April 19, 2011 at 11:53am
Yes Keith that sounds logical.  But sometimes there is no logic. LOL  Good Luck anyway.  I think doing a campground position would be a good gig.  Maybe next year like you said.
