Motorhome OR Towable Which is Right for You?

Posted by diyrvguy in DIY RV Guy , 22 May 2015 - - - - - - · 131 views
motorhome, travel trailer and 1 more...

I hear this question often, and the answers vary…
 
“Motorhome or Towable … Which is best for me?”
 
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…

Our Roadtreking RV Burglarized in Illinois

Posted by roadtrekingmike in Roadtreking Blog, 21 May 2015 - - - - - - · 311 views

Our Roadtreking RV Burglarized in Illinois Seven minutes is all it took for our RV to be burglarized, to lose $12,000 and counting worth of equipment – just about everything of value inside the motorhome except the dog.

Yes, just seven minutes.

That’s all it took for the bad guys to come into our space, take our stuff.

We know it was only seven minutes, too, from our dash cam record...

Lessons Learned from Owning a Diesel Motorhome

Motorhomes

Lessons Learned from Owning a Diesel Motorhome I've owned my 2014 Winnebago View Profile now for over a year.  Its a 26 ft class C with a small diesel engine (3.0L V6 Turbo diesel).  I bought it new, have driven over 28,000 miles, and have been very pleased with it.  For me, Its got just the right amount of living space and and just the right size for driving around.
 
This has be...

Thor Tuscany XTE

Posted by liedtkekla in liedtkekla's Blog, 23 April 2015 - - - - - - · 201 views

I own a Thor Motor coach, Tuscany XTE, since the purchase in 2014, I have now 4 EMS boards replaced.
My rear A/C turns the compressor of, and it is a frustrating problem.
Does anybody having the same RV experienced that problem?
If you had, please let me know what was been done to fix it.
 
Thanks

Bradford friends find us in VA FL 4-13-15
As we near the end of our winter get away we decided to spend a few days unwinding. Yesterday we took a drive over the mountain to Culpepper VA. It was another beautiful blue sky day. The views from the mountain were spectacular. The balance of the day was spent at our CG enjoying the 70 degree weather.

Today we traveled over the mountain aga...

Caliente Spring Resort
 
I stayed at Caliente Springs Resort this winter and at a “State of the Resorts meeting” the management asked for an online review.  They may feel that they have the best resort available but I must say they are brave to ask for an online review with me in the room. 
Caliente Springs Resort is located at...

Our First Blog

Posted by jananddave in Maritime Travels, 03 February 2015 - - - - - - · 368 views

We're planning a summer trip f/ our home in South Carolina to Canada's Maritime Provinces. We'll be traveling in our 39' diesel pusher coach. We've done a fair amount of research but would sure appreciate any helpful ideas or suggestions of places/things to see/do while there. Also, we're a little concerned about the availability of diesel fuel that fa...

Just sitting here trying to plan another trip and wondering if I should get involved with blogs and posts. I have reviewed the forums and have learned much as we are new at this since August 2014. Any thoughts or ideas?

Have a Happy New Year

We've been back at our winter residence for nearly two months now.  When we were full timing the motor home was our residence. How different things are now.  We moved into a mobile home (they call them manufactured homes when they sell them) in 2010.  Manufactured is a better term.  The home was mobile for about 500 miles but now that...

From Tampa to Everywhere....

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...

Mountain Hwy.

Posted by washtech in washtech's Blog, 01 August 2014 - - - - - - · 743 views

Good Morning Fellow Travelers:
 
One quick question, I'm considering traveling out to CO and visiting the Durango area. It appears that highway 160 running "west" off of I-25 is the most direct route. Does anyone have any "experience" with this particular highway?
 
Thanks for any input.

On the Way Home From Washington DC

Posted by GrampaDennis in GrampaDennis' Blog, 27 July 2014 - - - - - - · 686 views

On the Way Home From Washington DC Since I wanted to avoid the NJ Turnpike, we went home via I-476/Pennsylvania Turnpike, west of Philadelphia.  This is an OLD turnpike, which is very narrow.  Much of it is under reconstruction - it should be better when finished.  The right lane had bumpy drainage structures in it, so I drove mostly in the left lane. Meanwhile, the signs an...

What We Have Been Up To Since picking up the new motorhome, we went to Jon Walker's lake house in Southern Michigan, to Glamarama in Goshen, IN, then to our spot in Hearthside Grove at Petoskey, MI.
 
We enjoyed our time spent with Jon and Sondra Walker.  We parked at their lake house on Baldwin Lake in Michigan.  There were several things to be done to get things...

The Quest for a REAL CUP OF COFFEE

Posted by PopNDelly in The (mis)ADVENTURES of PopNDelly, 31 May 2014 - - - - - - · 1,712 views

The Quest for a REAL CUP OF COFFEE Downsizing from a 1400 sf townhouse to a 34 ft 7 inch Motorhome was pretty easy. We gave away just about everything - without much hesitation. Unless you count the 10x15 storage unit....... It is full of books and Christmas decor. But no coffee makers reside there.

Pot 1: Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee maker

It was too big for the counter.
It pulled to...
