Hello everyone. I'm new to the RV and camping lifestyle, and wondered if any others have decided to throw caution to the wind and hop in a big rolling gashog and explore the US. My personal plans are to do a bug circuit of the US, starting with Florida, then to Boston, then to Montana and south to Arizona, then across I40 to Littlerock and the Diamond Mine State Park. Then, when I'm tired and out of money, my plans are to return to Florida and rest until next year.

What about you?

I've never done a trip like this. It sounds wonderful.
I guess that you have to take care of yourself .By this I mean, ask the locals for safe place to stop at and don't stay in isolated places. That's what I do when I travel .-
All the best to you. You surely are going to discover wonderful places and people.
regards
maria

Gideon 70, you will have had such an incredible experience by the time you get back to Florida! I lived in a motorhome for 2 years and it was the experience of a lifetime. I didn't have an itinerary like you, just went where the wind blew but it didn't lessen the experience. The people, places, scenery and sharing stories with other rvers along the way.........in one word, wonderful! I hope you will continue to post on POF as you embark on your journey. Happy Trails!!!

That sounds wonderful...I have met a few people who have traveled all over the US and Canada in an RV. One person belonged to Thousand Trails and stayed for 2 wks at a time in their parks. Another person stayed for free in National Parks by being a volunteer camp host. One couple I know hits the road every summer for a month and makes the relative circuit. You could also go to all the baseball parks and watch games and tailgate...that would be fun. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy.

Thank you!

I purchased the RV a few days ago. Unfortunately I was unable to buy the big 25K model I wanted, and settled for a more reasonable 4500.00 model I could pay cash for. It's in decent shape, fully remodeled inside, and needed some engine tweaks and cosmetic repairs.

Today, I put a new carb on it, and a new sset of gaskets, and now it runs and smells a LOT better. Tomorrow I plan to repair the generator and get it up and ready to go.

I'm really looking forward to getting out and going. I'm going to go voluteer to camp watch at two places in the next three weeks or so to work out the bugs and get acclimated to sleeping in a biog mobile box. I'll let you know how it works out.

If you ever make it back to Daytona, stop at the Tomoka State Park just outside of the town of Ormond Beach. The facilities are great, they are 27.00 and 1/2 that for seniors and disabled, and they have lots of trails to play on, good showers, and friendly staff.

So, how is it going in the RV so far? I bought to big and it limits where I can stop. But I can survive without any connections for 7 to 10 days.

I'm actually planning a cross country trip myself, wanting to visit all the National Parks out west. However I car camp and backpack, sleeping in a tent or in a jungle hammock. It can be quite the experience and very enjoyable.

My brother is currently full-timing and has looped the US twice in the past two years. He follows the good weather with side trips to site-see. He's the one that turned me onto the idea. I have my "perfect" motor home picked out, a used 2005 Winnebago Vectra 40FD. The layout is more like a small apartment so it doesn't look or feel like you're living in a bus. But I've also seen a few other brands of motor homes that would work with a little remodeling. If I'm going to live in it full time, I want it to look and feel like a home. Granted, a large vehicle can be a little unwieldy but that's what having a "toad" car is for, to get into the small areas to site-see.

Right now, it's still a dream but I have hope for the future.

I do not own an RV, but like many, I wish I did; that is why I keep purchasing lottery tickets. That and following the advice, "keep the dream alive; go back to sleep".

The one thing I do know about RVing is that WalMart is your friend. This is a business that deserves your business when you are RVing - because they allow you to park overnight in their parking lots for free. I do not know of any other business that welcomes campers/RVers like this. They derserve our patronage for being such good corporate neighbours, as well as having reasonable prices. If and when I am travelling, you can look for me in the WalMart parking lot.

(A paved parking lot for parking a RV is a good thing; it's easier to get around in AND the likelihood of having to pay for a tow truck to pull out an RV camper/bus from a mud hole that is supposed to be a campsite is nill.)

Wal-Mart parking lots fall under the local town, city, governing laws. In North Ft Myers, management will tell you it's okay, local law enforcement will tell you to leave, so not all walmarts are camper friendly anymore

I am very interested in RVing!

I bought a trailer office for my business and it just hit me...... this would be so cool if I had a personal RV trailer and camp up north. I remember going to bible camp last year up north at a farm. Lots of RVs there, and it's sooo peaceful up there! One day I hope to buy a nice RV and a truck to haul it. The camping would be awesome!

There's even plenty of single RV women like me out there and if we can do it, anyone can! Don't let fear of driving an RV stop you! There's so many places to go and see in the great USA!


So true ! And you also can rent a RV [CruiseAmerica] if the mood strikes u instead of first buying one to test the waters if its something u would like or continue to do in the future.

Or what I think would also be really cool, as there a place called jucyrentals in California, which u can rent a small mini vans, beds 4,etc and drive the fabled Highway 1.
And there are many free places u can pull over and park. And watch the Pacific ocean along this most amazing coastal roads in the country….Happy traveling...

Great topic.
I have dived into the RV world in a different way and now I talk to the many RVers out there, it is a passion for them and how it is a dream for the people not doing it, YET! Something about picking up and moving around, jumping off the rat race wheel.
It is a lifestyle that a lot of people dream about. I was amazed at how many people want to do or are doing this.
I just bought my first Class C 28 footer last fall. I haven't had a chance to use it yet (frozen tundra of MN) But I am putting the plans in place for some shorter trips. Sigh... still have to work for a living.
