Can I get septic truck in Chicago?

Hi friends,

I will be dry camping in downtown Chicago. Does anyone know a septic service that will come and drain my tanks? No dump stations nearby.

Thanks.

You know it, you love it, Nomad View

Just outside of Badlands National Park. Unbeatable boondocking experience.

I am not saying that those of us who have trucks and trailers will give it up. I will still be camping, although I may well cut back on distances.

Is there a new RV bust coming?

With the cost of fuel, coupled with the insane price of new trailers, and everything else, my view is that the boom to buy new and big is probably over. Thoughts?

Blue Ox vs. Reese Dual Cam

My 2013 32bhds, which was stolen, had the Reese Dual Cam. Verry good anti-sway. My newer 32 Bhds trailer(2016) came with the Blue Ox. I find there is way more sway, no matter how many links I try. ...

My Jayco 32bhds was stolen

Yes, very painful and shocking. It was parked on a farm, but in view of the highway. Someone drove up, hitched up, and there you go. Lost a lot of stuff on the trailer too, as you can imagine.

Long story short, they say I need a new axel, spindle and tire. 1500 bucks. I can pay that, but they say...

My thoughts on packed campgrounds

This summer we did a 2 week trip to Yellowstone, very busy park, with a big rig, and not a single reservation. Worked out very well, and cheap. This is how I did it. (Forgive the cut and paste):

A "good" day for us is 250 - 300.
