Hello Everyone

I am 100% new to this site and RVing in general. To that end, I currently do not even own an RV. Thought I would join a forum and try and learn some before jumping right into it. I was referred here by the RVGeeks, who I have been watching on Youtube for a while now.

My first question is: How doable is RVing as a single parent? I have a 2.5yo son that I would like to talk with me on my travels as well as two dogs. Am I getting into deep water or is it doable?

RV: I am looking at the Nexus Super C as my current RV of interest. Seems to be a good mix of space, value, and quality.

If I am posting in the wrong area, I am sorry.

Look forward to your replies.

Anything is doable however the attention span of a 2 1/2 year old is about 3 minutes tops. Keeping him/her in a car seat for an extended trip will require frequent stops to attend to the child. Aside from that, if you can handle that kind of stress then go for it. In the early 70's just a 4 hour trip to the Colorado river was a chore with 2 kids. Now that they're 42 and 45 years old, it's probably the same LOL but I don't have to deal with it anymore.

Car Seats...

Thinking on purchasing a super C rv. That benign said, where is the recommended location for a child/car seat ?

Welcome! I have not traveled with small children so can't offer much but I am sure others will chime in.

Hi James

Glad to have you here in the forum with us.

It is definitely doable, and think of the memories your son will have when he gets older.

Happy Trails!!!

In regard to the child seat, I'd suggest you contact the manufacturer of the Class C and ask them where and if it's possible to install a seat. Some vehicles aren't equipped to handle a child seat so call before you purchase
