Jim & Melinda Tanner

17th Aug, 18


We enjoyed our trip River Bend this past October, but due to the wet weather we were unable to get out and explore. Recently, we went back to River Bend Campground in Oregon and had the chance to get out!

Getting out for a hike was the highlight of our trip. The best part? The trail head to Soda Creek Falls was only 10 miles East from…

We can connect to our 5th wheel hitch and the King Ping with ease. Easy....breezy. However, attaching that DARN emergency brake cable from the King Pin to our truck/hitch...NOT FUN. It's the one step that I don't look forward to. You have be 7 feet tall to reach over the wheel well and get the cable!!! For the record....I'm not 7 foot tall. To complete this task, I have to step up on the…
