RE: Planning summer 2022 trip to Alaska Fly/Rent

Alaska.org has great information. Google Alaska RV travel. You will find many blogs from RV couples and families who have traveled at different times of the season and a variety of itinerary ideas.

RE: Lithium Batteries

We have a 2019 Tiffin Wayfarer. Lithium battery option was not available until the 2020 models. We had ours installed in 2020 at the Tiffin Service Center. Best money spent.

RE: Hersey PA RV show

Do as much research as you can prior to going. Functionality is often overlooked. Imagine cooking a meal, taking a shower or what an be done indoors with 3 straight days of rain. Many kitchens have limited counter space.Many couches are NOT comfortable. Figure your price point. You will see LOTS of bells and whistles. Suggest you concentrate on what you will truly use the most. Theatre seats vs couch. Bed sizes in RVs are usually a bit smaller. A pretty RV is wonderful but over time, a livable RV matters more.

RE: Cost of RVing

That information must be atleast 5 years old. Even with discounts, it's tough to find those rates.

RE: how do you follow weather on the road

We have found Wind to be an issue at times. Especially TX, CO, UT. Windy app seems to be pretty accurate.

RE: How long to bring slide in and drive off?

Because we move around often, we set up and break down often. For us, more time is spent on putting away periphery items, rather than closing up the slide. Interior items all have a place and most are put away and secured after each use. We do fresh water fill instead of hooking up to water sources. We don't hook up to the sewer unless we need to dump, then put it away. So when we leave it's only unhooking the electric and sometimes cable. You can make it work with a bit of planning.

RE: How long to bring slide in and drive off?

You should be able to do a "mock" set up and break down with any dealer so you know. Each model may vary a bit. Some models have two slideouts. Part of our breakdown is fold blanket & stow our pillows. Put away coffeemaker, etc.

RE: How long to bring slide in and drive off?

We have a Tiffin Wayfarer 2019 FW Model with full Wall Slide.Old Version of RW. With two of us, break down is 4-5 minutes doing inside and outside tasks without rushing.Super Easy. Set up is a bit longer. We are minimalists. Almost 6 years Full Timing, 2 1/2 of those years in the Wayfarer.

RE: Tips/Tricks/info on Full-time RV'ing For Beginners

While there is quite a lot of information available, there are basics that will apply to most people. One of the first things I learned from this forum 6-7 years ago is that the "transition" is going to be different for each person. Many variables contribute to the success or failure of a Full Time venture. After full timing almost 6 years, I believe one of the most important aspects people need to address well before the nuts and bolts of the process is if Full Time RVing is what you really and truly what you want. Read as much as you can, positive and negative on every aspect of how this will affect your life and future. Not everyone comes into this with eyes wide open.

RE: Is a toad necessary with a small motor home?

We have a 26' Class C. We travel Full Time on the road since December 2014. We do not Tow a car. We generally travel to National Park and Natural areas. For the most part stay away from large cities. We can break down/set up our site in under 10 minutes so using the RV to get around is easy. Its easy to find parking our rig fits in. The 1-3 times a year that we need a car, we most often rent from Enterprise. If the campground is located within 10 miles, they pick you up. Pre-covid the cost per day was usually $20-25.00 per day. Many folks want the freedom to have their car available without breaking down the rig. You may want to try a couple of trips near home to test out what works best for you.

RE: GPS rerouting due to accident

Google Maps has saved us significant delays many times over the past 5 years of Full Time Travel. Only once can I recall that it re-routed to an equally bad route. Both routes had bad accidents... The tie breaker decision for us is if we see many Truckers taking the alternate route, we follow the trucks. We like the odds.
