I've posted previously on CD that I would sell everything and move into an RV in a heartbeat.....just to keep the kids from constantly moving back in with me. I need something I can crank up and head down the road when I see them coming.

Just kidding......kind of.

himain,
You mention traveling with your furry friends. Don't forget to make sure you have your pets vaccinated and carry copies of their medical records as well with you on your travels. There have been times we were so glad to have Q-tip's (our Eskie) medical records. Most of the campground directories show if a campground has pet restrictions of any kind so those are good sources as well.

Plus... there is kind of a camper/pet Etiquette. Common sense kind of things... like keeping your pet on a leash not only for their safety but for others, picking up after them, and how your pet responds to being left in the camper by itself if you need to leave for a while. Do they bark incessantly or are they quiet as a mouse? Make sure you know how to program your generator to kick on automatically if you must leave them and for some reason there would be a power outage. These RV's will get HOT very quickly just like a car. Of course, this too is dependent upon the rules at the campground.

Thanks Aus, my two furry friends are cats (although it might only be one by the time we head out ) and will be updated with everything. I will make sure they are comfortable in the rv at all times!!

Very thoughtful and caring advice - thank you! We (my sweetheart and I) have 2 Shih-Tzu's and 1 chocolate lab. The Shih-Tzu's go everywhere with us and the BBD (Big Brown Dog) gets to go camping, fishing and hiking. She wouldn't do well in our little tent trailer all day..of course neither would the little ones...we haven't left any of them yet!

I'll say this, It's is more enjoyable if your young, sometimes as we age we loose interest in things we enjoyed when we were young, I've known people who planned to do this all their life and then when the time comes the interest is gone or the money isn't there so what I'm saying is if it sounds good and you can do it then go for it.
