Not in California. Some towns/states allow it with the right equipment.

The horse is back in the barn!

816 miles round trip to Coos Bay and back. It was a good trip! We spent 3.5 days riding the ATVs in the sand dunes. I won't be needing to ride the ATV for awhile now! It's about an hour drive for me to Redding and then about 4 hours up highway 5 to the Seven Feathers Casino and RV Resort at Canyonville Oregon. The RV park is inexpensive and it is one of the nicest parks I've been in. Highway 5 from Redding to Canyonville is all mountain driving. It is grade after grade after grade. It's a good workout for the Motorhome. If your rig can survive it I think it would survive anything.

It's another 2.5 hours to Coos Bay, Oregon. The weather this time was excellent...no rain! I know almost impossible to believe isn't it? We stay at the KOA campground since it is oriented towards ATVs and it gives us access to the sand dunes for the ATVs. The campground was fairly quiet this time of year with the kids back in school...no masses of ATVs waking us up at 7-8 am in the morning. It was the noisy diesel pushers and diesel pickups who's owners believe for some idiotic reason that they must run those smelly/noisy diesels for long periods of time while they just sit there...oh yes, I'm rolling my f'ing eyes!

I think it is a real toss up as to weather the Motorhome or the ATV gets the worst gas mileage. Of course both are run quiet a bit on this trip with the pedal to the floor! And, I have oil leaks on both.

I also must mention that I have the greatest time watching my buddy that I go riding with and who owns a Class C SOB, get so damn jealous when the AIrstream gets all the attention! That my actually be the best part of the entire trip. Oh, and I leave him and his 460 behind when climbing the grades...gloating!

Well I have a new list of issue to work on after this trip. My nickel and dime me to death machine, wink wink, had a few problems. The hydraulic leveling jacks would not deploy. The hydraulic pump will run but the jacks won't come down. The manual says if this is the case then it is a blown fuse in the wiring harness. Well let's hope that the system was installed properly with this fuse and that is what the problem is. I'm sure however that it will take multiple days to hunt down that fuse! The cruise control also did not work on this trip. Again, I'm hoping for a fuse somewhere. On the morning of the second day at Coos Bay, I noticed a puddle of oil under the engine and in a new location so I knew it wasn't my typical engine oil leak that I have. I got under there and discovered it was the power steering pump. Hoses and connections look good so it is the pump that is leaking. I topped off the reservoir for the trip back and when running and warm, it leaks but not too much. Anyway, I made it back with steering and brakes! I'm still not happy with the second fan clutch that I have on the MH. It seems to be partially engaged all the time. I needed to use the furnace each night on the trip. It worked well until last night when it started to just blow cold air. I can turn off the thermostat and then back on and it lights and almost comes up to temp then starts blowing cold ain't again and the fan then doesn't shut off.

So my list grows again!

All and all it was a great trip and we had a great time. The MH once again got me there and back. I thoroughly enjoy driving it and camping in it. Now it's time to begin the plans for the next trip!

At least you are out enjoying your Airstream, that's what counts.
