Hi Bill,
You know what? We traded one problem for another. There are just as many planes flying over, all night long, as before but you couldn't hear them very well in the new TT. However, in the new TT we have a digital televison antenna and every time one of those things would fly over, we would lose the signal. Very frustrating! So I don't know which was better; the popup with the canvas bunkends and no television, or the TT with sound proof insulation and constantly losing the digital television signal.
We went to OhioPyle a few years back and had a great time. Never been to MT Davis though. Hope you have a great trip Bill.

Television

Hi Bill,
You are so right. I didn't miss televison at all in our popup. But for some reason, when it is on, I'm drawn to it like a moth to a lamp. Then it seemed whenever the show got to a good part, a plane flew over Raccoon and knocked out the picture for a few seconds!
I just bought and installed a "wingman" for the sensar antenna on the TT. I don't know if this will help hold a signal against planes, but it added 10 new digital stations to my television. I'm surprised because there really isn't much to the wingman - just some plastic and metal strips, but I have to say it does bring in more stations when it is attached.
Our next trip is to State College, PA over Memorial Weekend.
Enjoy the Summer.

Hi Bill,
I got mine from Camping World but you might pick a new one up from E-bay for less. Mine was $29.00 It attaches to the bottom of the Sensar model III and model IV antenna. You don't even need tools, just snap off the old bumpers on the Sensar, put the Wingman in place and use the provided push-pins to lock the two pieces together. It really made a big difference in my reception - I get more digital stations now in the TT than in my house! If you don't have a Sensar antenna, I think they have a new model that includes both the antenna and the Wingman.
Next week we're headed to the Pennsylvania State Coachmen Rally.
Happy Camping.

Hi Bill,
The rally is at the fairgrounds in Centre Hall, PA. I think it will be fun.
