I'm the same way. I've registered under both our names, but I'm the one that does all the talkin' (which, according to my husband, isn't limited to just forums )
Welcome to the group SunflyerAZ. You're gonna enjoy this site. So many helpful people. Happy camping!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Hi! I am the pug lady, we, as you can guess own a pug. This is a neat forum as everyone has said. If you are ever camping and see us walking our dogs (one isn't a pug) you will know it is probably us! Sue

Hi! I am Peggy Weygandt some of you folks have met me, oh and my hubby Jerry. We have a Dutch Star and I am the driver. So, thus the name DSDRIVER. We live in Plano, TX. and this summer we were gone 10 weeks and attended the IRV2 rally in Nashville. Had a ball. Maybe we will see you in TX next year.

Hi,
This is great. I am the one that explores irv2. I'm the planner for our trips. He listens and gives his 2 cents and than we put our heads together and come up with our destination.
As for the rest we have 3 girls age 2,4,6 have been camping since the first one was 6 months.
We have only travelled Ontario. Want to explore the U.S.
I have a laundry chut in my fiver!!! What a great invention. We have a hard wood door on the girls bedroom Lovin' it. THe kitchen area in this fiver has been great. One thing that annoys me is the shoe thing. What do you all do with your shoes? We have sandals,rubber boots, and shoes. To go with whatever weather is happening. I usually store what we aren't using. But they all get lined up near and around the door. What do you do?
We finally bought a carpet for outside the door last year so during the day I tell the kids to keep them out. My husband keeps his on.
gotta go. This is great looking forward to checking out this forum.

Tracey, you can order canvas shoe bags that attach to the base of your bed. Each "set" holds 4 or 5 pairs of shoes (our trailer is in storage for the winter so I can't check for accuracy). We have a set on each side of our bed so most of the shoes are up off the floor. You can find them at campingworld.com They are a little pricey but it helps to have a place for everything and everything in it's place.

My screen name is pretty easy to interpret. My first name is Lynn and we live in Vermont.
About the canvas shoe rack that hangs from the side of the bed.I would think it would be fairly easy to make if you sew. I thought about it, never found the time to make one and the fiver we own now has a big closet with a shoe rack. Glad to see the women's perspective active again.

LynneVT,
Re: canvas shoe bags. I do sew, just wasn't sure on the dimensions, etc., plus they were on sale when we got them. I was also still working at the time so took the easy way out.
I envy you your fiver with the big closet and shoe storage. We've been looking but just can't justify the huge jump in price. We have everything we need in the TT we have and it's so affordable. We're now retired and a lot more modest in our spending - not that we don't still drool!!
Happy camping.

Kay,
Just keep your eyes open for a used fiver. Our's was a barely used unit. The people bought it in Jan. and we bought it in July. So it had very little use. And we had our eye on a different unit that was a little older but in great shape for a lot less. However when we went back to buy it, it had been sold already.

Newbie. Wannabe. Whatever I am... my name is Christy.

Glad to have found this place!

We're at the beginning of our journey (ETA: full-timing journey) and will probably be in our hometown for awhile until some obligations are fulfilled.

LynneVT,
I remember reading about your Cardinal when you got it. What a stroke of luck for you so it was meant to be. We look, haven't ruled out getting into something else, but we really do love our little TT and it is so comfortable. We have put just about everything we want on it so it is truly a home for us when we are away from our stick house.
We particularly like the Montanas, I think they've come a long way and everything you could possibly want has been addressed. But it just seems like a big expense for the short time we spend in it. Maybe some day.
Thanks for your input.

Hi, My name is Pati (rosefanatic because I LOVE roses).

I am a recent widow and want to keep RV'in. AT least I want to continue the two trips we always took to visit a son in TX and one in MT. I don't know how it is going to go since I only drove our 36' Bounder for about 1 hour in the 5 years we've owned it. I feel a bit out of place now, being without a husband but am determined to stay active. I do have a daughter and her 15 year old son that will make the trip with me, although she probably won't do any driving.

The canvas shoe bag sounds wonderful. I think I will work on making one. Shouldn't be too difficult.

I have learned a great deal about motorhomes since I found this forum a couple of weeks ago.

On the subject of storage - I just bought several mesh laundry bags at WalMart - they're designed for lingerie, or a larger one for sweaters; but I put all our atlases and maps in one of them so they're not sliding all over the place, stored behind the driver's seat. It's easy to see what's in them, and if they get dirty - well, just throw them in the laundry!!!
