Make sure that your rig is in top shape and get a roadside service plan. Good luck and welcome to the RV'ing lifestyle.

Glad you joined us Chantel. Sounds like you have a great trip planned. Don't be afraid of staying at a few Flying J's while on the road. I know they're truck stops but they have parking usually in front for rv's. Might just break the scenery up a bit. You can go online and download the locations or if you happen to stop in one you can pickup a flyer of there locations usually at the payment desk. Have met a lot of nice folks at quite a few different locations while on the road. Hope you enjoy your travels, be safe and Happy Motoring!!!!
