first time rv'ers

Hello all, my wife and I just purchased a class a rv and are pretty excited to do some traveling and enjoying our time together- my question is 2 fold 1.) Does any one have a checklist of what to permanently store in the rv for the season or any opinions are also welcome and
2.) Any opinions on must see campsites and places. We live in new jersey are in our 30's and have a harley davidson that we would like to bring with us so we can ride when we arrive.

I don't have a list, but you'll figure it out as you go? I do recommend the Kangamangus Hwy. in NH.

Sure glad you joined us. Hope you enjoy your time on the site. Congrats on the purchase of the new to you Class A and hope you enjoy all your travels with it. I'm sure someone will be along with your checklist to help you along. You can go to Camping Locations and Informaton here on the site and post a question there to get answer on campgrounds you would like to visit. Make sure you mention the Harley and the riding you would like to do. I'm sure quite a few have motorcycles that they travel with and can really give you some ideas. If you get down to the Smokey Mtns. the Blue Ridge Parkway would be great. If you get the opportunity to make it to Black Hills, South Dakota another fabulous area for riding. Well enough of me babbling. Have a great experience, be safe and Happy Motoring!!!

Welcome, this is a terrific place with great people and tons of information available.

If you head to the northeast I highly recommend the Champlain Islands in VT. Beautiful area and lots of great riding spots within easy day trip range.

welcome to our world... I recently moved into a 5th wheel toy hauler so I could take my bike along on my travels. I hope you enjoy as much as I have been. (And I haven't even left yet!)

Have a look at RV Checklists for your checklists. I copied and modified several from there.

Oh, and google "Tail of the Dragon" for a great adventure... just try to avoid donating to the tree of shame.

Pack what you think you may need to cover all your bases, then modify as you go. We moved into a 37.5ft 5er almost a year ago and we are still downsizing. (read that as my hubby is a packrat). However enjoy yourselves and learn as you go. This is my favorite website to visit when I need info about anything. Chances are someone has encountered it before you. Before we bought our 5er I did alot of surfing the net for info about RVing FT. I do not want to go back to a S&B if I can help it. We are truly living our dream. Enjoy & cheers, Jeannine & Joe

Welcome and happy RVing and biking. We have traveled with our Goldwing and Smart Car for the the last 4 years. Prior to that we just had the Wing or a car. We have never ran into a campground that did not welcome us as bikers. We have traveled with Harley riders and they have said their only problems came from being asked to not rev the bikes in the campground. As to what to take we plan for the season we are traveling in and pack accordingly. Even in the summer we have some heavier coats with us. We have traveled from AK to all over the lower 48 with kids and without. Deals Gap is a must and is Bikers Week Daytona Beach, FL. How will you be taking the Harley? We went with an enclosed trailer to keep it out of the weather and prying eyes. It also allows us to carry extra items we might want with the car and bike in the trailer.

Good luck, enjoy and ride safe.

Hello lowtiderider, welcome to the forum. We've been traveling nationwide since '06 and have never seen folks with bikes have a problem, other than possibly some bystanders drooling on them while they're gawking at them.
