My Essential RV Gear

RV Gear

Over the last few years, I've acquired some things that I feel are pretty essential to my safe and successful RV travel.  These are not household items, camp site bling, or basic RV items like sewer hoses, water hoses, or electrical cords, but more in the tool and gadget category.  This is not a complete or recommended list for other RVers....

RV Thanksgiving: Feasting Large In Spaces Small It was once suggested to me that celebrating Thanksgiving in our RV was an utterly ridiculous notion. “HOW can you prepare such a grand meal in such a small space?!” “WHAT on earth could you serve without access to a full kitchen?!” “WHO would ever want to join you on such an adventure?!”

Roof, Roofing, Roof Coating

Our 1998 Southwind was overdue for a roof rehab - see photos 1 and 2.  The original top layer was almost gone in places and we were having a lot of trouble with chalking and grey streaks forming on our windshield, windows and side panels.
 
I researched various treatments in forums, ads and websites.  I wanted something long-lasting and rel...

The simple answer is “It Depends…”
 
But…that’s probably not what you want to hear.
 
Honestly it depends on how you answer this 1 simple question…

The views from the mountain were spectacular. The balance of the day was spent at our CG enjoying the 70 degree weather.

From Tampa to Everywhere.... One of my favorite things to do is lie on the sofa, close my eyes, and recreate a trip....the miles, the feel of the road, the terrain, the people I see and meet along the way.
 
I started in 2007, no sense pretending my memory is that sharp....so, I'll begin with the most recent..my Labor Day trip to the northeast Georgia mountains to visit an old e...
