About This Club

A lot of us camp and many times it's because of a Gear Crusher activity like a car show or Offroad event or anything else. So this group is to discuss recreational vehicles or otherwise known as RV's


  1. What's new in this club
  2. This is a membership campground that has some really nice resorts, not so much campgrounds. These are luxury resorts that have lots to do at the park itself.
    What makes this park so cool is its right on the Mississippi River. What makes this park not so cool is whenever the Mississippi River gets full, it floods this campground and you can't stay here.
  3. The endless river traffic of the Mississippi is the main attraction at Tom Sawyer’s. The atmosphere is relaxed, laid back and peaceful while the RV Park is clean, well maintained and totally natural.The view of the sun rising over the Mississippi River is rivaled only by the full moon rising in the fall. Plenty of trails and wildlife compliment the nicely mowed fields and long, level concrete sites. Across the River is unspoiled Tennessee flood plain and just one bend upstream is the Memphis skyline. If it’s fishing you are looking for then look no further since we have a lake and two ponds stocked with an amazing array of fish.
  4. Experience family camping at its best with a visit to Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort. Perfect for water lovers, this RV campground in Texas allows you to launch your boat right from the campground. Don't have a boat? No problem. Enjoy the 22,000-acre lake with a jon boat, paddle boat, kayak, or canoe available for rent. With the marina expansion and new beach there is even more fun to be had at this RV campground in Texas.
  5. Buckhorn Creek Park is a very nice Army Corps of Engineers campground located on the south end of Lake O’ The Pines just on the east end of the dam. This campground has 40 RV sites and 38 tent camping sites. The park itself is protected from the wind by the dam and by the many trees throughout the park. Most of the park sits on a huge cove area of the lake.
  6. If you're looking for a campground with great amenities, then get outside and enjoy the weather at D&W Lake Camping and RV Park in Champaign, Illinois. We offer everything that you will need to have a great time with your family. There are plenty of golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts, and walking paths just a short distance from the park. Outdoor enthusiasts can get back to nature and sleep under the stars or stay in your RV and enjoy camping in comfort and style in one of our many full hook-up RV sites.
    This is a very nice, clean park. Watch your speed. Security is pretty tough to almost harassment levels.
    We have tried multiple planning applications to help us with our trips and honestly nothing comes close to how nice RV Trip Wizard is. The negative is it cost $39/year but if you are like me you like to plan ahead and RV Trip Wizard helps me do that better than anything else I've tried. Also I like that I don't have to install any software and can use it on my iPad or Macbook Pro.
  7. Most RV Planner tools only show campgrounds and locations affiliated with their publisher. RV Trip Wizard has no restrictions and is built to work with how you like to travel. Don’t fall victim to one affiliation and add time and cost to your trips.

  20. It's the dreaded 7-Way RV plug that we all have come to know and love. Most new vehicles equipped with a tow package have connectors. Trailers with electric brakes need them too. The 7-Way Trailer Plug is a round 2" diameter connector that allows an additional pin for an auxiliary 12-volt power or backup lights. It is usually used for towing a heavy-duty landscaping trailer, car trailer, boat trailer, horse trailer, travel trailer, construction trailer, and larger trailers When referencing the 7-Way RV Plug diagram, make sure you are looking at the plug the way the diagram is showing you.

RV Essentials: Surge protector Electrical adapters (50amp to 30amp AND/OR 110v to 50amp) Toilet chemicals Sewer kit RV-friendly toilet paper (if you use your home toilet paper it will cause some serious black tank issues that just isn't worth it) Water pressure regulator
  22. Someone asked, why don't you have RV's on your site. They have gears, fuel, oil and can be a pain in the ass to manage. I didn't have a good response so I created a section just for RV's which translates to Recreational Vehicle. Some people love there RV's and truthfully they all use similar components from other vehicles found on this website so they do belong. For example, motor home have either the Ford V-10 or the Chevy 6.2L or the most popular option, the Chrysler Cummins Diesel which is pretty much the standard in every diesel pusher out there.
