This thread disappeared and since I'm at work (
) on a fast line this morning, I figured I'd roll through to find all the threads with Pictures that I didn't have time to see before.
And sorry Heidi - you are absolutely right!! That was one of the first things Gary LOVED abou the R.V. - if we don't like our neighbors - we move!
And Jeanie - you are so right. This is an incredibly beautiful country. And SO BIG. I love all the different parts of it - but most especially the South in the Winter and the North in the summer! (I'm not so much a Winter person! - I like to visit snow, not live in it! :tounge2: )
Debby - it looks big, but it's pretty standard. It's 35 feet long and six feet wide. We don't have slide-outs (for those who don't know, for about eight or nine years now they've manufactured RVs with "rooms" on hydraulics that "slide out" to widen the inside living space when parked, and "slide in" for driving. It adds an extra 3 - 4 feet to the width -which, when you're talking about living in something 6 feet wide, makes a real difference!). The problem with the slide-outs is that you have to give up the underneath storage space to fit the hydraulic stuff in there, and you have to give up the inside overhead storage space because of the weight. We needed all the space we could get for storing stuff, so no slides.
The longest RVs/bus conversions I'm aware of are 42 feet long, and the bus conversions are usually eight feet wide - which for recreational as opposed to commercial use weren't actually "road legal" in many states until just a few years ago.
If ANY of you are interested in RVs or RVing, just PM me! We have VAST resources at our disposal, and even know lots about renting them for a weekend or a week if you want to see what it's like!
We also have compiled a GREAT list of RV Parks, and can give tips on how to "read" the directories of parks, etc.
