Trailer equipment

Made a quick trip through the Tractor Supply in Lewiston, Maine. Was surprised to see a new 8' display of RV supplies. Will have to go back when have more time. Big new plastic wedges for the tires (means I can leave the heavy rubber ones home?)? Water hoses, dogbones, sewer connections and whatever. At least I will have to go back and make a mental note of what is there. I know TS are everywhere and if I need something like I might remember I can scoot in and get. Have to check prices too, as probably a lot better than some RV dealers, with better parking with a trailer on?

Last time I was in our local TS I didn’t see any RV section.  I’ll be sure to check the next time I’m there.  Thanks for the heads up.  Mike

The local one I usually go into I don't recall an RV section either. It was a full and razor  straight display, so must be new? It was way back in the rear against the wall near the batteries. Seeing most major retailers have the same 'plan-0-grahms I wouldn't be surprised to see it in all soon?

Our local TSC stores are all being remodeled. It may take a while until this happens nation wide, but the new format and product displays are much improved and more practical. I even noticed they are carrying food freeze driers. These aren't your grandmother's dehydrators. These are high end and rather expensive but are great for preparing foods for camping. Freeze dried food takes up about 1/10 the space, do not require refrigeration and can be prepared pretty quickly. I was pleased to see they had expanded their product lines in our stores.

Last year we got a couple of their folding rocking chairs. Another group we hang with all asked where they came from. Heard they sold out soon after, but they had some. Hopefully this year they have the battery operated heated ones. That should extend our shoulder season, for those of us that live above the Mason/Dixon Line...

Hey all, on the topic of travel trailer accessories and campsite equipment, a couple years back we were referred by a friend that we should try Strongback ergonomically correct folding camp chairs. I have had lower back problems my entire adult life and the typical "bag chair" that is sold for camping and outdoor activity is the worst thing in the world for me to sit in. After a weekend of using these old style chairs at the camp site I could barely make it to work on a Monday. 

The Strongback chairs were designed with exactly my problem in mind and have actually been on the market for several years. I don't think you will find another camp chair anything like it and it even comes with a 2 year warranty which is extraordinary. We bought two of these a couple years ago and they have been our go to folding chairs when out and about since, but they also get used continuously around the house because of the level of comfort they provide. They are roomy in size and built very sturdy. If you're like me and struggle to use the typical sling style folding chair, I highly recommend you give these a try. If you buy them through Amazon you can try them for a month risk free and if you don't like them just return them through your local Kohls store no questions asked. I promise you will be amazed as soon as you sit in one.

We live in the land of "Team Ropers" with a dozen roping arenas nearby.  Many of these cowboys have expensive horse trailers with living quarters.   Our local TS had a small area dedicated to RVs - now they have expanded to meet the needs of those customers who need more than just horse supplies.

One of our neighbors near our property in nc talked about those horse/living quarters trailers. 

I've seen them on the highway. Practical for a certain group. Actually. Perfect for them.
