The trick with the X Bronx is never be in the right lane east or west

yes, the right and left lanes are for hovercrafts only! i suppose someday they'll fix those sunken sewer covers. it is just hard to get in the center because traffic is so polite ;-)

Hi everyone! Since you're talking NY, I'm towing my Airstream to the Queens area around June 3rd or 4th this summer. I'm going to go visit my daughter who lives on Ditmars bv, near the river. I'm traveling from Jackson Center, Ohio. Any tips for me on best routes, what to avoid, weather concerns or places to park my 16' Bambi, etc???? Thanks so much!!!

Cari

i don't know about the route but parking will likely be an issue. i suggest you start a new thread so more people will notice the request for info

you will likely come east on rt 80 to the GW bridge, X bronx then the Throgs neck (avoid the Whitestone bridge I think)

Do not hit the x bronx after 3Pm thru 8Pm, it's a parking lot.

Ditmars is very city if you catch my drift as the people your staying with if you can park where they live and if it will be safe,

We just bought an Airstream in New Mexico and brought it back to Long Island. It was quite an adventure but we learned a lot about our new baby along the way.

Good luck with your new trailer.

That is so exciting. What an adventure. How long was the drive home?

We drove there in two days, 2,145 miles. We took more time coming back but it's a bad time of year to go camping, most campgrounds aren't open yet. We got home in six days stopping at a few State campgrounds along the way. We now feel confident that we can go just about anywhere if we have the time.

Got a name yet?

Would get the same model ,, but farming does not always pay well or not at all..

Good luck,, and enjoy every minute..

Still cant embrace the fact that "laws" cant park it on your own land,, Here in west Kansas there would be gun fire going on if someone came up with a law like that around here.

No we haven't spent enough time in the AS to find a proper name, I sure it will come to us after a few trips

Congratulations on your new 27' beauty. We're in the market for the Serenity 30' and have the same issues. We can't park it in our driveway due to our HOA. Urrrrr. So, I've been looking for storage in Denver. Please post some pics. I just love the Serenity. Safe travels and welcome!!
