Class A Newbie Traveling Cross Country

HI! My name is April and I'm new here and new to RVing. Sure we had a small vintage Shasta travel trailer before but nothing like now! We just purchased a 34ft 1987 Pace Arrow! It's in pretty good shape for it's age and only needs some minor things inside and out. We can do most of it ourselves and I'm hoping to get some sound advice here on this forum. Learning from you all is the major reason I joined. The scariest thing it needs is the propane re-inspected and we're doing that on Friday. Crossing our fingers we don't have to replace the tank.

In addition to camping locally here on Vancouver Island where we spend a great deal of time we also plan to use the motorhome to travel to Florida in the mid spring. I'm originally from Tampa. The family and I are planning on re-locating there back into my childhood home so that I can concentrate on my business from the US. Only one of us is Canadian and we'll of course be traveling back and forth all the time.

Hoping to learn from all of you about cross-country travel in a motorhome as well. It's a daunting trip. We plan to drive down in our car in October just to get a feel for it as we visit and continue re-opening the house in the sunshine state. We'll be traveling in the motorhome with 3 cats and a dog so you see we have lots to discuss!

Hope to post some pictures of our Pace Arrow later today. We're trying to come up with a name for her!

Thanks for welcoming me to the forum! Hope to join the discussion soon!

G'morning from South Dakota and a BIG WELCOME to iRV2.

We too are often in the Tampa area since our son and his family live there, although, you'll often find us wintering in Texas or Arizona as well.

Good luck with your Pace Arrow and have a great trip down to Tampa.

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

We're crossing our fingers for the propane inspection tomorrow. But I do have a quick question and I'll post it in another thread as well.

How hard is it to replace a speedo cable in a Pace Arrow? Our speedo doesn't work. Is a portable GPS an option?
