One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

Today we’re going to try again to get our motorhome’s two piece windshield replaced. We had an appointment for last Friday but it was cancelled at the last minute, so hopefully we can get it done. Both sides have big cracks in them and I really want to get them done before we head south […]

Longtime blog readers know that I have not been a big fan of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas RV mecca that is home to thousands of Winter Texans. But I have to admit, our stay here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission has me rethinking my previous position on the place. We came […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Often with fulltiming couples […]

It’s been a while since I did a blog about oddball RVs and some folks have asked if I had any new ones to share. As a matter of fact, I do! Here are several that readers have sent me or I’ve found online. We’ll start with a real oldie, an expanding RV from 1934, […]

We were busy picking up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal from our printer in Michigan yesterday and getting it ready to mail out to our subscribers, so I am posting a story that first ran in the July-August, 2008 issue of the Gypsy Journal. You don’t have to be a hunter to appreciate […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question, because there is no one size fits all. Each of us has our own needs and priorities, and […]

I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably err on the side of caution, but so far I haven’t wrecked our motorhome and it hasn’t burned down with us in it, so I guess my method is working out. In the course of a […]

Yesterday was another long day of working on the new issue of the paper and I’m almost done. Two pages to go! I’ll wrap it up tomorrow and print it out for Terry to proofread before I upload it to our printer’s web server. And then we get to play for a while! I did […]
