We dont get to go camping till mid October. Might be last trip of the year....
If I went camping that late here I would need to strap some snow skies on the trailer wheels and lay in a good stock of fire water....

Will be peak leaf color time here. Haven't tested out the heater in the Roo. Will try it out while there. If it works well we might be able to do a few more, but down here in the valley, not in the mountains.

I just went on line and ordered 2 from Harbor Freight's web site - $6 each and an extra $7 for S&H. I probably would have spent $20 just in gas one-way to my closest HB!

I haven't used chocks like these on a trailer since I had my PUP - and that's been about 6 years ago. I've always used the BAL deluxe or X-chocks exclusively on my Roo 23SS and now my new Flagstaff 27BESS. But I'm thinking with the length and weight of the 27BESS, having a little extra insurance couldn't hurt.

I used to use the yellow screw clamps that go between the tires.

I didn't like them because no matter how tight I got them, they loosened as the tires cooled.

I forgot to check them once and they were loosely hanging between the tires, no pressure at all on the tire!!

Amazing how much a tire can shrink.
