Hi Ladies,

My name is Lynne and I post almost every day. We do not own our MH yet but are actively looking as I retire in 32 1/2 months and am ready to hit the road. I came here after a patient told me about this site and have been learning ever since.

I am on several threads with mostly guys but they are great! Everyone is helpful and answer any questions I ask. I have a lot to learn. I have driven several MHs, towed a pop-up and tented in the past. My DH has never driven a MH but has done the rest.

I look up old threads, read others, and comment on several. Love the vintage section, full-time section, and several others. Good people here.

Look forward to getting our MH so we can become a more active part of this good group.

I've wondered the same thing. It does seem that the men post more. But, in our family, I research, read and post more. I pass the information on to my hubby on a need to know basis. If we've had an issue with something, he needs to know what everyone else has said about it, or how they have fixed it. As far as driving the motorhome…never. I'm the navigator & have no interest in driving the beast or even looking at all that engine stuff. I do like to learn how things work…and when possible how to fix something ourselves. (other than the engine) We enjoy traveling & have started spending winters in the south. I guess that makes us snow-birds. Making our get away home comfortable & efficient is important…So, I enjoy the threads relating to that.
BTW, I'm Becky. John is my hubby. We're retired teachers…so, Schools Out fits us.

Know something? I almost never notice the gender of posters, and when I do discover one is of the feminine sex I am surprised. Most of the posters here are RVers, with little need to separate as to gender. All questions--and answers--come from RVers.

I think it is a good thing, as all are treated as equals.

I have only posted a few times, but I'm on this site nearly every day. I am a shy lurker at heart, I guess!
My DH doesn't post at all, but sends me to search for information. IRV2 is the best source of info with the best people.
We are planning on going fun time as soon as we can sell our "sticks and bricks!"

I think when there is a couple with one login that it's automatically assumed it's the man posting - it's me 99.99% of the time!

I'm here! I do all the posting as DH doesn't like to use the keyboard. I relate info to him and he often has me to post comments for him. I'm the one to do most of the searching for info. This site is fantastic.

Hey Ladies! It's good to meet you.

I'm on a boxer forum and a horse forum and it seems on those, that there are more gals that post so I was just curious how many were on iRV2.

This is a huge site with great members that are willing to help anyone with any question. I can't offer much help on technical questions but add what I can where I can.

Like school's out, I am the navigator. I tell DH "where to go" and I give directions too. I man the GPS, The Next Exit (love that, btw) and figure out where we can get fuel, how far to the rest stops & overnight stops. I take a lot of pics while we're on the road so I am the photographer too. DH never wanted me to drive the gasser we had because it was a wrestling match trying to keep it on the road but now that we have the DP, I am hopeful that I'll get a turn behind the wheel!

Somehow, learning the different systems has also fallen on me. I think I've got the Oasis system figured out (for now) but the electrical system is still a mystery even though I've been reading a lot about it. I'm hoping the inverter is smarter than me and knows what to do & when.

DH is pretty handy and can do a lot of the maintenance & "fix it" things which is great. He also makes a great margarita.

I love RVing and seeing the USA. We aren't full timers and can't be gone from the S&B for months at a time but have several trips we're planning. I hope to meet you gals along the way.

Hi, Another female here...hubby doesn't look at this site. I do drag him around with me. It's my toy, my responsibility. ( He does help with it as I still consider myself a beginner and learner...) We pull one of his toys behind us sometimes. Not a full timer, no plans to do so. Love the vintage section, do some lurking in the technical areas to learn, and pose questions occasionally.

Hi Kaye!

I'm also a single female full timer it will be 4 years next month and I can't imagine any other lifestyle. I travel with a capuchin monkey and small dog. We spend winters near Tampa, Florida and summers in Seattle. Spring and Fall we travel between the 2 and enjoy this wonderful country.

I mainly hang out on this thread --> R U an RV Mutant too? A bunch of us mutants are getting together in Hot Springs, AR this week to have fun!

Like Karen, my DH is also the "fix it" guy but instead of margaritas, he's known for his mean dry martinis... with blue cheese stuffed olives.

As others have said, I do the lurking/posting here and forward important info to DH. He does a lot of research about the technical info, but doesn't have time for blogs. I'm the planner/navigator and help with the driving just a bit. We sold our previous MH several years ago and will pick up our new Dutch Star in 3 weeks. We heard about irv2 from another MH owner recently and we're so thankful for all the helpful info!

Enjoy your travels!

Good Morning Ladies,

Was happy to see that there are several Ladies who are on here. How many of you do your own repairs whether mechanical or interior? I am pretty good with interior stuff since we have remodeled every home we have been in but the mechanical I am going to have to learn. I guess the fact I WANT to learn will help here but suspect I will still be limited as to what I will be able to do.

I love the camping lifestyle and look forward to it. How many of you have W/D's in your rigs? Haven't used a laundramat in so long not sure about that. Is it a big issue to you. Just wondering since I am looking and have not bought yet how important that is to have on my list.

Well, hope to talk with ya later, have a great day! Lynne
