Do It Yourself RV: What does the RV lifestyle mean to you?

To me, the RV lifestyle means living in an RV and traveling with the RV fairly often, probably going south for the winter and north for the summer. It means that I will live in the RV full-time and can move around when I choose and my home goes with me.

On the Road of Retirement: Little Manatee River State Park

We left Imperial Bonita Estates in Bonita Springs Florida after preparation for departure. Our next stop is about 130 miles north where we will spend several nights at Little Manatee River State Park. The drive over was pretty congested as there were many fender benders along the way.

Across the country, there’s a growing movement for something known as R2R, or Right to Repair. It’s being fought by the RV industry, which often limits just who can repair their products, usually through a tightly controlled dealership network.

Love Your RV: Checking out Cave Creek Canyon in Southeastern Ariz.

One called Sunny Flats is available to RVs but has a 28-foot limit. Our Cougar fifth wheel is right around that but thought it prudent to drive the truck in first for a look see. Glad I did, because even though we may fit length-wise, I would not want to chance it height-wise. The road in is littered with low hanging branches and large tree trunks jutting into the narrow roads.
