Talking 1st Trip Success :)

Hey everyone! Hope your month has been as good as mine. My friend Aubrey and I took the RV up into the mountains for the first time last week and I'm happy to report the trip was a major success.

I was very surprised and happy to see the motorhome take the challenging hills of I-70 without any trouble or over heating - and I feel very safe driving her (although a little intimidated at times haha.)

We went to Idaho Springs here in CO and stayed at a nice little campground called Cottonwood RV right by a river. It was such a nice get away spot and a great way to enjoy nature. Overall the whole experience was much needed and now we can start planning longer and more extensive trips.

I am keeping a blog of my adventures and experiences, please check it out read the latest entry about the trip / subscribe / comment, or just give me a like haha.

Happy travels RV friends <3

Hi GypsyYears,
My first coach was a 78 Brave 26' (the longest model at that time). It served me well. Had her over 10 years and many trips around the USA. Glad to hear your trip was a success.

Very awesome to meet another Brave fan. I saw an older Brave that was the size of a Minnie Winnie a week ago and it made me smile. The Braves were well built and I am very satisfied with my coach

Thanks for your comment cheers
