I also took a class from Dave a few years ago. He was great. In fact, I'd like to get my wife & kids in one of his classes. If he needs 3 more to fill a class, let me know & we may show up.

Nice! Thanks for all the reports & trail work this year. Does it look like a tinderbox up there too, or have they gotten some rain lately?

Yes, it's a very nice place to camp & take the kids riding. There's dispersed camping along most roads (I forgot the road numbers). You'll find plenty of camping & riding on both sides of 285.

Question Do you think a 29' RV is too big for Rampart, etc?

Hey,

I'm on the fence between a 25' Class C and a 29' one. The 29 looks a lot more comfortable (couch, walk around bed, etc.), but we don't want to be too big to get off the beaten path.

Thoughts on a Class C/Enclosed Trailer vs. 1/2 Ton/Toy Hauler Combo in the Rockies

I like that I can get our Tahoe & enclosed cargo trailer well off the beaten path (we don't like camping in crowded campgrounds). I'm trying to figure out how to add a camper to the equation.
