Small Person Driving Big

It is hard to believe that I have owned my Roadtrek SS Agile campervan for close to six years. It is even harder to believe that I have been full timing it with Elsie the Cat for over two years. Where does the time go? What do I do next? How long do I want […]Read More

Living the Full Time Life

Dog Proofing your RV

We have traveled in our Class B motorhome with 2 to 5 dogs.  They are all ~50 lb. Standard Poodles, so shedding was not a problem, but dirty paws were. And the seats in our Roadtrek were in perfect condition when we bought it. The carpet was in not so perfect condition. We started with […]Read More

Driving was a bit harrowing as there were several spots where they were doing road construction (it's summer, the best time for […]Read More

Tough Choices in the Life of an old RV

Our Roadtrek had been running great. We had passed our 200,000 mile service with no issues. Our transmission had been rebuilt at 172,000 miles (a bit short of the expected 200,000 miles) and was ready for at least another 172,000. Several friends and acquaintances were approaching 300,000 miles – which is the expected life for […]Read More

Is My Battery Charged?

“What is wrong? My battery was low, so I turned on my generator, and 20 minutes later the battery was full, so I turned off the generator. But 20 minutes later my battery is low again!”  We have seen questions like this for years from new RV owners. Most likely there is nothing wrong with […]Read More

RV Closet Contents Revealed

RV closets are dimly-lit spaces jam-packed with clothes. And the smaller the RV, the more packed the closet.  The wardrobe closet in our 19.5 foot Roadtrek 190 Popular is 16-inches wide x 49-inches tall And 18-inches deep. The first trick we learned is although you can use regular size plastic clothes hangers you must insert […]Read More
