Smile Hello All!


We started RVing almost two years ago when we purchased our 1997 National Dolphin 535.

We are not retired and are more like weekend warriors. But, we go whenever we get the chance and the goal is to get about 12 chances a year!

The crew consists of me, my wife, our three sons and our Golden Retriever, Carmen, who is a gift from above! We don't take our cat on our outings because we don't want to take the chance of him getting lost.

So far we have been to a variety of places in Florida and as of yet we have no toad vehicle. We just drive the car with us. Not ideal, but it works.

We have done a few upgrades/replacements type of things, but most things in our Dolphin are stock.

Oh yeah, although she is a bit of an older coach, we are the second owners and we got her with only 18,000+ miles!

When we were looking for an RV it was long process to find just the right one but when we found it, we knew. All of us did!

So, if you are presently searching, you will just know when you find it!

Anyway, just wanted to get the basics out of the way and say 'Hello' to everyone.

We are having a blast!

Welcome! You did the right thing... start small and find out what you like and don't like before you spend a bundle. We just upgraded to an '04 Dolphin from our first entry. Found out what was really important and what was not necessary. Have fun,.

The newer Dolphins are a lot like the older ones too.
