    2004 Coleman Santa Fe - Finding Appropriate Rack Mounts for Roof Tracks

    I used Thule TR1 landing pads (IIRC) on both the 04 and 08 Coleman campers. Never had a problem with my Alumitite roof. Check eTrailer or a site like RackAttack for the landing pad/towers.

    History of the Station Wagon

    Oh boy! The family always had Mercury Colony Park wagons growing up and even when the folks were empty nesters - just in case the grand kids want to go along. 57, 62, 68, 75, 82 (which I drove for my family after they were done with it), 89, and the very last year Mercury made a Colony Park 95...

    Everyone Needs a Spotter

    Watching another couple trying to back in a big 5er into a just barely big enough site with the wife yelling "Cut the wheel! Cut the wheel!" without saying which way to 'cut the wheel' and hubby, leaning out the window to try and see her, yelling back "which way?" Good times, good times. As...

    Upper Penisula

    Brimley SP is a nice park with lots to do close by. It is an easy drive to the Soo to see the locks and Tahquamenon Falls. (There is a brewery in the park at Tahquamenon Falls also!) Whitefish Point and Point Iroquois Light Station are an easy day trip. So much to see and do in the UP!

    Carrying a kayak

    We also use the TV to haul the kayaks (16 and 16.5 ft). We have used J-hooks, regular saddles and have Hullavators. Using the J-hooks you add height to the roof line i.e. it can be a giant sail and have a negative effect on both mileage and handling. Plus it can be a workout to lift the boat...

    Why Do you Go To RV Shows?

    It's 'date night' for us. We enjoy looking at new units and people watching. We did not go last year and only once so far this year, and on the first day early, so very low attendance and no crowds. Going to try the Novi show again this year, weather and the DW work schedule permitting us to...
