newbie to TT

hello to all!

Ive been camping for years and recently moved into a 2004 Wildwood LE 27BH.
This is our first TT and although I learned a lot in the past year about maintenance, towing procedures,etc I still have a lot to learn.

Family and I live in Rochester, NY and get out to Adirondack Park about 10x a year.

For those who have never been to Adirondack park, I HIGHLY suggest you make a trip. If you like the outdoors, your kids/husband/wife will love it!

Bring a canoe, mtn bike and fishing gear and a camera so you can capture those great memories!!!

What camping areas do you recommend in the Adirondacks?
We're looking for some nice areas that are quiet, good privacy with lots of hiking available.

There are 100's of great areas in the ADK's. It's probably easier to list the ones to stay away from based on your desire for quiet/privacy.

Stay away from fish Creek. This is a great campground if you like to bring your Donzi and run it wide open.
Most campgrounds between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid will suit your purpose. (Rt 3, Rt30)

The biggest problem with the adk's is traditionally the sites are tight on sapce. For years I camped in a popup and could camp on almost any site in the adk. Now with a 29' TT, my choices are very limited. There are sites avail for bigger units, but you must be more selective.
I can recommend some places, but would rather send you a PM as I would prefer not to publish information on the web so the entire world can see. I hope you (and the FRF community) can understand.
I belong to other forums on the web (mostly for fly fishing) and usually tribal knowledge being shared on the web is frowned upon.

Schu, we to have just gotten our 27LRSS TT and are new to TT. We have tented, popped up, and MH. We love the new TT, but need ideas for the pantry and closets, cabinets and anywhere else. We also have to get the equalizer and sway bar yet. Aren't quite sure what to get. Have pulled boats, but never a TT. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
