  5. Hello All!! My First post here. I currently don’t have an RV. I am looking at getting one around the time I sell my house. I am looking to go full time RV in the next 1-3yrs. I live in upstate NY and they require a road test to get a license “R” to drive anything over 26,000 gvwr including a toad. I’ve been looking around and even called the local CDL school to find a place or person that can help me take the road test. In order to do this in NY I need access to an RV that is 26000 gvwr and someone that has the “R” endorsement to take the road test. Does anyone out there know of any places that help people get this endorsement? Thanks

  7. My wife and I recently bought a big rig from a couple which also included a membership into Thousand Trails as part of the package deal. We are currently experiencing difficulty transferring the membership, and we wonder if it is worth the effort. We would appreciate hearing about any experiences you seasoned travelers have had concerning this resort in particular and any other rv resorts you may have had experiences. It is a big investment, and while we have read other review sites on Thousand Trails, we are not sure we trust all the information on those sites, probably from our lacking very little rv experience. We find it hard to separate legitimate from illegitimate complaints in those forums. We look forward to a long association with the Escapees RV Club and hope to meet many members. If you think you can help us, please jump in and comment. We will value any input.
  8. Hi guys, I'm looking forward to your great ideas, opinions, etc. Can't decide as of the moment which is the better option. I have had researched about RV's but I find a dealer which I thought has great customer service and delivers good quality products. Please feel free to reply on my post. +/- comments are welcome.

  9. Anyone else using Verizon Unlimited and liking it? Yeah it's not truly unlimited in every way, but it still is a home internet replacement for me without issue. I made this video in my apartment, but I am weekender currently when it comes to RVing, and am out every weekend primarily at the same campground, but out to different parts of the country around me regularly.

  11. I rushed to get my RV winterized as an Alberta clipper was bearing down on my area and I did a few dumb things and ended up with a basic tutorial I call RV winterizing with a dummy
  12. Here is a quick tip for winterizing that RV fridge if you have the same handles I do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ-1YfREYj4
  13. I have a recommendation for any RV'ers visiting Livingston who need to get their inspection done. This place will inspect vehicles, motorhomes, towed trailers, and fifth wheels. There is ample room in front of their shop to maneuver your rig (unlike a couple of the other local inspection places). The fellow who did my inspection was knowledgable about travelers who may be showing up to get their inspection done well after they got their registration (unlike another place that told me I didn't have to get inspected at all). Soda's Auto Repair 936-563-4234 6709 Highway 190 If you are coming from Livingston, head east on 190. Soda's is 6.2 miles after the intersection of 190 and 146. It will be on your left as you near the top of a hill and is across from a cell tower.
  14. I recently installed two Battle Born lithium batteries and an Ames 2000 watt inverter charger into my travel trailer. Here is how it looks all finished up minus the parallel cables for the two batteries, Here is my real world usage for those batteries anybody else using these batteries, I am a big fan. I will no longer carry a generator 2-4 day boondocking trips.
  15. Temperatures are getting chilly overnight, I have a tip for those of us without heat pumps. This allows me to use electric heat and or catalytic heaters that sip propane to warm the entire coach.
  16. I'm very excited about the new RV Nomads movie/documentary full-length feature that will be coming out in the Fall of 2018. I just heard the news about this film, and can't wait.

  22. Hi guys, we are new to RVing but are very enthusiastic. We are looking to buy our first RV and live in it full time. We heard people refer to it as “Full timing.” We’re hoping to get some tips from all the experienced folks out here and recommendations on selecting our first RV. At the moment, we don’t have a vehicle for the towing. To not be limited by the vehicle, we’re looking to decide on an RV and then buy the truck that best suit for towing it. After doing a research about the different options available, we came up with a list of features we need in an RV. RV requirements list: Budget $13,000 Travel trailer / Toy hauler Up to 30ft length Sleeps 2 minimum Queen bed Sitting area with a table Private sleeping area (area that can be close off) Ramp back door - preferable Kitchen i.e. refrigerator, range oven, microwave, sink etc Shower & toilet No expandable tent (hybrid) Awning 2 axles Any suggestions regarding make and models of RV based on those features and budget would be greatly appreciated!
  23. A really neat documentary is on the brink of being completed. Filmmaker, Eric Bricker, set out over 2 1/2 years ago with the idea of featuring Airstream as an architectural great of modern design, but through interviews and filming, he discovered that not only is Airstream an icon of the RV industry, it signifies adventure and a spirited lifestyle in American culture. When Eric released the movie trailer, I was grinning from ear to ear because I think he really "gets" what the nomadic lifestyle is all about. It is a great history lesson of all things Airstream, but more importantly, Airstream simply became the vehicle through which all these stories of fulltiming and adventures were told. This really is a celebration of life on the road, the simple things, and enjoying the present moment. He has the blessing of Airstream, and up until this point, was self-funded. He wants to keep this film independent, so as not to be labeled propaganda for the company. If you feel inspired to help support Eric Bricker complete this film, he has one week left on his Kickstarter campaign. You can watch the ALUMINATION trailer here: ALUMINATION, a feature-length documentary by Eric Bricker --Kickstarter Here are some cool articles that were recently written up on the documentary: Alumination is a Film Every RVer Will Want to Experience - RV Life Magazine Finally, Airstream Fanatics Have a Documentary - Men's Journal Talking Alumination with Eric Bricker - Airstream Disclaimer: I had the chance to meet Eric this past Thanksgiving. He is my brother-in law's sister's significant other. It was cool to hear about his journey and personal evolution with this film. Neat guy!
