Packing it all in an RV – is there enough ro...

This was our first experience driving a large RV, and for other seniors or newbies to RV’ing, we’ve learned a lot that we’d love to share.  The questions we’ve received most are: how much space is there in a Class C RV, and how much can you carry with you while you’re traveling. I hate to state the obvious, but they both depend on the size RV you rent or buy. This article and video will give you a tour of the inside and outside of the one we got from Planet RV in Broward County, Florida.  It was a 2013 Thor Chatea u 31 feet in length. Other Class C RV’s could be larger or even up to 50% smaller, so use this as a guide for a comparable large...

2016 RV Adventure – part 1

You can take it with you…if you’re driving an RV. That’s been one of my favorite assumptions, and we are off on a 10-day RV adventure to see how it works in reality. Thanks to the good folks at Planet RV in Broward County, Florida, we’ve been able to schedule back-to-back RV rentals, and we’ll be trying out both Class C and Class A motorhomes over the next 10 days.   What’s it like to drive something that big? Is a big RV hard to drive? Don’t you have to learn all sorts of mechanical stuff when you’re setting up camp?  How do you keep in touch if you don’t have Internet or cable TV?  Can you really be comfortable without your...
