Hi. I started rving with my family about two years ago. I have seen many oopsies and "oh shoots" along the way on some trips that should never be spoken of...ever. On the flip side, we have had some great times too. I was skeptical at first that I would be able to handle it all and remember everything but thank goodness for you tube. For the most part it was everything I thought it would be. Really getting in touch with and appreciating nature. Watching my daughter overcome her fear of bugs (well somewhat) has me proud. I want to offer that experience to a family that might not want to commit to buying an R.V. at this time. Take it for a test drive, it may help you make up your mind. Most state and national parks have lots to do and there is always beach camping or try out the caverns state park in Florida. We are planning to go gem mining this summer in NC. So many great adventures to be had on the road, see if you don't get hooked!
