1. NEVER travel on a holiday weekend
2. NEVER travel on a long weekend on a narrow, two-lane highway through small towns having end of summer fairs or parades.
3. If the sign says "gusty wind area", believe it.
4. ALWAYS have an "Oh, Crap!" fund available for the unexpected mishap.
5. MOST importantly enjoy yourself and have fun!
Feel free to add to this list of what you've learned since RVing.
8. When your wife tells you to turn right don't keep going straight! Or you might do like I did and encounter a sign that says "Pavement Ends" "End of the Road". Then you get to disconnect the tow car, back up, turn the coach around, and reconnect the tow car. And worst of all, you have to listen to her say "I told you so" for the next 8 hours!
12. It's good to feel "at home" anywhere you travel.
You know that feeling at a hotel? it just doesn't feel good or comfortable. I like having my OWN pillow! The pillows at hotels are always either to soft and puffy or to flat and hard! Glo wants me to add that she can walk barefoot in the Newell but she refuses to in a hotel room!

HAHAHAHA I like #8, nice one Tuga, and Tuga knows just as well as i do, it doesn't end that day either, it will be her favorite story to tell every other couple traveling in a MH/Coach over the road hahaha
RVing is so much easier than setting up and taking down camp when a TENT is involved. Air mattresses never again! This old man will never set up a tent and blow up an air mattress once having the luxury of owning a coach! RVing enables people of all different ages and abilities to enjoy the experience. Once you experience taking a trip or camping in an RV you will never want to go back to the setting up a tent and having to take it all down. It's time consuming and it's hard on the back. Plus with a coach you know you'll stay dry and warm. The tent days bring back to many wet and cold camping memories.
