So I met my current companion/boyfriend (Bob) in March, 2016, one year after I started RVing. He was brand new to the world of RVing and I finally convinced him to go with me on a 4 day camping trip (with electric and water hookup) at a local county park. I think he was bewildered with the whole RVing thing as he stood by and watched me hook up and then drive the RV to the pull-through site.
Bob is a strapping 6’ man...

As all good things must come to an end, on day five, we had to check out of our campsite by noon. I had everything packed up by 10am and all that was left to do was hitch up. Easier said than done! No matter what I tried, the coupler latch would not engage.
After sometime, I asked the next door RV camper if he could help me. The gentlemen tried over and over. While scratching his head, he stated that he had been RVing for years and had never seen a problem like this! While we both...

So now my sister and I are on the third day of our first RV camping trip. Our campsite pad was pitched at a slightly downhill angle, but I wasn’t worried because my RV bubble levelers indicated I was perfectly level.
My sister was already up and about when I groggily got out of bed and started my coffee. Once again I see my sister looking at me with a worried look on her face while wringing her hands. She proceeded to tell me that she thinks we are slowly rolling downhill. When I asked...

Okay so now my sister and I survived our first RV towing trip and are all setup at our beautifully paved and deeply wooded site with water/electric hookup. During check-in the desk attendant had mentioned several times about bear awareness and safety precautions. I made special efforts to hide my concerns because I didn’t want to alarm my sister, but deep inside I was a little scared. Returning from going out to dinner, I opened a bottle of bubbly Moscato and we settled down to watch “The Great...

My very first RV trip started off with a BANG, literally! With my sister (unwillingly) and the 17FQ Viking RV in tow, I pulled out of my driveway and onto the road feeling ever so smug with the tune of “I am women, Hear Me Roar” singing in my head. Suddenly, I heard a loud bang and a scraping sound that ended with a bump to my truck’s back end. We both jumped out thinking we had been hit by another car, only to find the RV unhitched and sitting half on the road and shoulder.
My township’s...
