Welcome Scott,

Twins, fantastic! As for camping with Diapers....no experience there but lots of Diaper experience...I work in a shelter for kids....we place dirty diapers in Dog bags from the dollar store....keeps the smell contained. I would then place them in a container outside of the TT that has a lid that is tight..to keep the smell in and not attract animal.

Welcome to the Jayco Forum.

When our Daughter was about 6 years old we bought our 1st Pop Up.

We had two Pop Ups before we bought our 1st TT.

When our Daughter was about 10 years old we even went Coast to Coast once with the 3 or us in a S-10 Blazer pulling our second Pop Up, had a blast.

Welcome to the forum from a south Chicago suburb and fellow newbie to the forum. I really liked your story. I think you will have lots of fun with the twins. My wife and I honeymoon'd on Mackinaw Island and went back there with our kids on our tenth anniversary.

Good Times...

Welcome to the forum. I went one stop past Grayslake and got of the train at Round Lake, where I jumped in the car and headed north to Spring Grove. Love the area!!! But since I never liked the snow, we moved to Central Florida. It is a lot easier sweeping sand off the driveway then shoveling snow.

Enjoy your new toy!!!

Welcome to the fold Scott. I'm just north of you in the Racine/Kenosha area. Enjoy the new PUP! Let me know what some of your favorite Illinois State Parks are, and feel free to holler if you need any tips on Wisconsin State Parks...we've hit almost all of them over the last 25 years or so.

Wheelchair Accessable RV

Fellow father of twins here in Alabama. I saw in your post where you mention the Forest River V Cross as being wheelchair accessible??

Still can't access the bath/shower once inside though : (
Does the V Cross have a ramp? a lift? or wider doors? I had to build my own ramp and porch landing and it is a pain to transport them.

I just saw your response to my post regarding wheelchair accessible V-Cross RV. My folks just returned from spending the winter in their rig. They left Milwaukee around New Years and returned a week ago. My Mom is an above the knee amputee and is wheelchair bound.

Their rig has a lift that hooks to her wheelchair and is remote controlled. I think it was an add on. The shower is wheelchair accessible and the kitchen has modifications as well. Their trailer appears to be a modification of the V-Cross Platinum 32VFKS. The layout is similar but the bathroom is configured differently.

My Dad's only regret is leaving the Jayco line after owning 3 trailers. He even went to far to contact Jayco to see if they would be interested in building a single floorplan that is wheelchair accessable as there are many who love to camp in the same situation and the company responded no.

If you want I can try to get more information from my Dad or if you want to give me your email address I can get it to him and you can communicate directly. He loves to talk about campers. If I can be of further help let me know.

I also sent you a PM.

Scott, DW, and Twin DS (5)
