You are embarking on a great lifestyle. We have RV'd for over 30 years and 1/2 times for the last 13 of retirement.

We have found we enjoy having a satellite dish and can pick up plenty of TV just about anywhere. We use Dish Network, but Direct is preferred by others. Ford vs. Chevy argument. We have found Verizon to have the most complete coverage for traveling. Not the cheapest. You can also connect to the internet in most rv parks using their wifi. If not your phone can become a hot spot for your computer or tablet.

One source that we use for finding RV Parks is rvparkreview.com It has most parks in it and are reviewed by users like us so it is quite accurate. Not only is it numeric, but reviewers write a narrative that is helpful.

Good luck on your new adventure. Hope you enjoy your travels.

Is this a new or used Coach? If it's used is it from a dealer or a private sale? We bought a 2014 leftover with 3500 miles on it, but it was "new" so full warranty. We did not buy a Georgetown but loomed at quite a few of them and liked them a lot. Check the Georgetown forum and see what's up with the model your looking at.

Good luck!

I agree with the others that you are embarking upon a wonderful way of life, and travel. DW and I have traveled using various methods, ship, airplane, auto, but none compare with the wonderful relaxed travel in the MH.
Wishing you all the best in you adventures.

Thoughts on phone: Verizon, Internet - Wifi hotspot on Verizon network, TV - Dish Network ( Confirm your Sat. receiver is Dish & HD compatible )
We have travelled back and forth across the US and have never had reception issues with our setup. Verizon is more expensive, but their network seems to be accessible everywhere.
