Little House Customs - Yantis, Texas
Rocky Point COE Campground - Texarkana, Texas
We departed the South Sulphur Campground at the Cooper Lake State Park in Sulphur Springs, Texas at 8:45 a.m. We arrived at Little House Customs in Yantis, Texas at 10:00 a.m.
Little House Customs (LHC) is well known to owners of Casita Travel Trailers. The owners, Larry and Debbie, provide a mail-order business of parts and accessories for our trailers. They also provide installation services for numerous upgrades on Casita and other fiberglass trailers, at their shop in Yantis and also at fiberglass trailer rally’s.
On this visit LHC will install an Orbital Receiver Hitch, an Orbital Spare Tire Carrier and a Max-Air Window Vent on our rear window. They will also install a "Hard Start Capacitor Kit" on our air conditioner. I had purchased the capacitor kit from them last year to have on hand as a spare. Now that we will be running the air conditioner with the Honda Generator EU2000I, this modification will put less of a load on the generator, as the compressor on the air conditioner cycles on and off.
All of the items were installed and we were on our way at 2:45 p.m. We arrived at the Rocky Point COE Campground in Texarkana, Texas at 4:45 p.m. This campground just reopened on Thursday, after the government shutdown was finally resolved on Wednesday. We selected one of our favorite campsites, #37, that overlooks the lake. We will spend two nights here. This has become one of our favorite campgrounds in Texas. We have stayed here before, in December 2012 and again in March 2013.
Camping Fee: $20.00 per night (50% discount for Golden Age Passport holders).
