Only two weeks to opening...yikes

Posted 03-29-2012 at 09:32 PM by riverbender

We have been working like mad to get everything done. The power company turned the power on a week late, set us behind, and even with the warmest week in March I can remember, we are struggling to get everything done. Not in a small way because of the decision to remodel the last restroom. If you ever need something to slow down progress, bite off a project too large to comprehend! Once we got the building gutted, we realized the project was going to be larger than we thought. The building was...

Made it back

Updated 03-25-2012 at 07:48 PM by WH347

Thanks to all of you who posted replies and read this thread. I made it to NEW YORK. Purchased the motor home and made the 14 hour trip 810 miles straight through with a friend. We encountered rain, fog, contruction and narrow lanes and $34 worth of tolls on the NY throughway. I was white knuckled at first as you would imagine but after the 100 miles of two lane highway along the scenic saint lawrence seaway made me a little at ease. Now we were also pullling a towed vehicle so that added to the...

Bill and Dick's Excellent Adventure

Posted 03-23-2012 at 07:36 AM by WH347

This is my first BLOG here in iRV2. This is the story of a man named Bill and his friend Dick.
Bill wanted a motor home all of his life. Now that he is in the year of his retirement, he has made the decision, despite $4 a gallon gas to pursue his dream and purchase a motor home.
The motor home found was an immaculate 2007 Winnebago Sightseer 29.6 ft. V10 gas. It has 8,700 miles on it and has been garage kept.
The problem is that it was 900 miles away. I made the deal with the...

Coach net

Posted 03-20-2012 at 10:01 AM by bobgt1

I am pleased to see that so many of you have had a pleasant experience with your Coach Net service. I was not so lucky! I have been rving since 1992 and for the first time ever I had the occasion to need road service this past weekend.
Four of us and two small poodles on the way to Bristol for the Nascar race when on I-64 just east of I-81 the serpentine belt broke on our 2010 Tiffin Phaeton with only 18000 miles on it. I called Coach Net who appeared to be helpful at the start and was...

back again

Posted 03-19-2012 at 11:49 AM by JimmyLeggett

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted to my blog. Have had two 30 trips on the boat and that felt good.
On my prostrate cancer follow up exam two weeks ago, I am 0.1 PSA and that is very good.

We just returned from six days at Diseny Orlando with my DW, daughter and her family of hubby, 2 grandsons and a 13month old. We stayed at the Fort Wilderness campgrounds, a little pricey on the upper end but very nice.

For the price I was expecting a drive...

Moving Out in June

Posted 03-16-2012 at 03:08 PM by tbauer55

My husband and I are going full-time RVing in less than 3 months! We will be going to the Northeast the first time around.

We are Christians and going to be raising funds as we go for missions, in the states and in Puerto Lempira, HN. We are passionate about helping the people of Honduras. We have been there and were so blessed by the people. The need is great and we want to do more.

If anyone has any tips for us as we start this adventure, please let us know. Thanks!

Rebuilding the fence

Posted 03-12-2012 at 08:20 PM by riverbender

After a milder winter than in recent memory, we headed home. Bad weather waited for us to make that decision. We had tornado watches, rain and wind during the southern half of our journey home and snow and ice for the northern stretch. Taking our time to avoid the worst of it, we made it back in three days, so we are home again, back to the working side of the fence. After many hugs and kisses from the grandkids, we are settling back in to work. Bundlng wood, cleaning up the park, fixing tables,...

A Blog for the Newbie's Newbie!

Posted 03-12-2012 at 08:22 AM by kmesaaz

To begin, I am a TOTAL newbie to motorhomes. Never drove one, camped in one, or even sat in one prior to my decision to purchase one. I don't even know anyone who owns one!

It would be a gross understatement to say that I have A LOT to learn. Hopefully, readers who are newbies, rookies, or in the "new to us" categories will find something beneficial in my posts.

Once you have researched and identified the make, model, year, features, financing, price range,...

RVIA Claims - RV Industry Won't Be Impacted Until Fuel Reaches $10 per Gallon

Posted 03-07-2012 at 06:38 PM by DriVer (Welcome To My Blog!)
Updated 03-08-2012 at 09:26 PM by DriVer

From RV D@aily Report:

By Greg Gerber @ 12:41 PM

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Quoting a spokesman for the RV Industry Association, the South Bend Tribune reported yesterday that high gasoline prices don't diminish the economic advantage RVing has to offer until the price reaches $10 per gallon.

"The fuel prices don't really impact RV sales quite the way a lot of people might think," Kevin...

De-winterize, young man!

Posted 03-02-2012 at 08:33 PM by TheRVManiac

Looks like this week will be the week we have awaited all winter...or pre-spring as it was this year. Looks like there might be a break in the weather mid-week and we have a campground fairly close to us with FHU, WiFi so I can work, and close enough to Columbus to get OTA television reception. Time to test all systems for a couple of days!

We have purchased new bedding and picked up a second folding bicycle. I still need a water pressure regulator and filter and we need to pick...
