If you want a real thrill ride with a tow or any RV? Head East on I 90 in Colorado. Especially just after the exit near Red Rock. O my. Glad we were heading West. That is too much for me.

I keep a catalog at home & RV just to find out what the part is called if need be? Then check Amazon & Walmart on-line and go with the best price, unless I need it right away.

Any particular reason to use an image of Yosemite for the News Brief about Yellowstone?

Hey, Jack. I think you win the prize (if we had a contest for that). No one else has said anything about it, and no one here caught it. (I plead ignorance, since I’ve never been there.) I’ve just emailed Russ and we’ll see what he has to say for himself. 😉 Great to hear from you again! Maybe we’ll see you at Enumclaw next year. Take care, stay healthy, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

“We reported that Seattle was turning into a major entry point for Canadian RVers – They get their rigs back immediately. It costs $1,200 Canadian ($917 U.S.) and, somehow, meets the technical restrictions of both countries.”

I am a little confused by your last statement “ meets technical restrictions of both countries” The commercial carriers are Canadian. It is the USA border agents that determines who is allowed into USA. If the USA border agents deem that transporting RVs into the states is essential then they are allowed. Canadian commercial carriers are allowed entry back into Canada as they are Canadians and as a Canadian cannot be refused entry. They either isolate for 2 weeks or are deemed essential.
Why would transporting an RV been deemed essential?
I would hope the USA has procedures in place to monitor, isolate, and control foreigners arriving from a pandemic stricken country like Canada into the USA.

RE: Yellowstone October 2020. We were working in West Yellowstone until the middle of the month. There were a mix of new and seasoned campers. The weather west close to perfect. While cold (20) over night, it was sunny and 60ish during the day. Traffic was terrible at the major features every weekend this year including October.

“the price of diesel fuel took off like a rocket last week.” Doesn’t anyone follow the Commodity market? Since the election the crude oil price has gone up $3-$4 a barrel and bulk unleaded gas has gone up 10+ cents a gallon. I’m surprised that it didn’t go up by more but, at the rate oil and gas are raising, I suspect it is going to get much higher.

Camping World and Amazon are last choices for me.

Another question which you can say yes to multiple choices. If I have time to check local stores and compare to online stores I will. And I will use local as long as the prices are close. But there are times I need a part now and can not wait. Yet at other times I can wait for delivery especially when local prices are too high. There is no one straight answer to the poll.

i always prefer to support the small local business, too many have been driven out by big business. KEEP THE MONEY CLOSE TO HOME.

eBay sellers are faster than amazon, at least for me in the last few years.
I just secured a new direct supplier LCI ( Lippert) has a site. Needed window operators for my rear frameless windows. Been searching for months, my dealer is dead to me after the last 2 fiascos. Called & emailed a company that showed online what I thought might be the parts I needed , but no details. After 3 attempts to clarify details with no return response I gave up on that company. Then noticed the window glass had a LCI emblem. Found a Lippert site online. Sent a email that got a response in about an hour . Sent them pictures, they gave me a price. I ordered & received in 2 days.
I get Lippert deals now in my email. That bike rack that was featured here is on sale now. It’s nice to have a positive experience for a change

I would have marked “Other” as my local RV repair shop with a store is not a dealer.

If we need an rv part immediately, we go to our local rv dealer but if we don’t need it right away we order from Amazon or online.

For many smaller items Amazon. For quick pickup of yearly items like water filters Walmart. For my new 2 6volt batteries a local golf cart retailer.

I head to Walmart.com before Amazon.com. I have found that they have more good deals on the things we have needed.
