Because of its proximity to the river and the short distance to to the town of Kernville, the Kernville Airport campground is a great spot for a weekend trip or even longer. Unlike most of the campgrounds in and around the River, this campground is rarely crowded, except for special fly-in events and meet-ups when there are lots of airplanes and tents. (Usually, we call the cafe before heading over to be sure that there isn’t an event scheduled on a weekend when we plan to visit.)
Have you ever tried to remove a screw with a dime because you can't find a screwdriver? Or lit your grill with a wood skewer because you didn't have a lighter? But in the end, after you stripped that screw, didn't you wish you had just looked a little bit longer for the right tool? And after that skewer burned itself in half, fell onto your carpet and melted itself a big hole while you were racing it outside, didn't you just want to punch yourself in the face for being stupid?
I've heard experienced RVers say that new owners should not buy new dishware, cookware and linens for their camper but rather we should mine our household cupboards, closets and garages to repurpose something we already have. I'm pretty sure that these people are, well, not fun at all. Not only that, but I bet there are a lot of stripped screws and holey carpets in their houses.
Why? Because RVs are not houses. And the tools we use in them should be specific to the job of making Airstream life wonderful.
Seriously, though, there are a few reasons that this is a bad idea.
