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.

Ranger Dollus says that one of the more recent changes that visitors may notice within the National Forests is the move to restrict dispersed camping to designated sites identified by brown signs with a tent symbol and a number.
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.

It’s being fought by the RV industry, which often limits just who can repair their products, usually through a tightly controlled dealership network. For RV owners, this often means that necessary repairs can take days, even weeks because many of those dealership service shops are booked solid.

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.
Motor Coach Industries is recalling certain 2001-2015 J4500 and 1997-2013 102EL3/E4500 coaches equipped with a hydraulic rear axle (tag axle) steering system.
