    Hehe yea.

    Believe it or not, Matt Foley’s and DuckSlayer’s life stories are just about identical, minus Matt’s divorce (I’ve never been married).

    They have a place. I’d very much RV Alaska again in a heartbeat. We will be doing an RV trip to Yellowstone sometime in my future. I’m not to the point of wanting to own one, though. They ARE like a boat. Roads are rough on them, and things don’t always hold up well. Vans should have less issues. Roof membranes are the usual expensive item for RVers.

    Hey stevena, ever heard of Outdoorsy? It is a website for RV camper and trailer rental that is kind of like AirBnB. We rented a 16' trailer in Bozeman MT but when we picked it up we found out that for extra $$ they will meet you at your campsite in Yellowstone with the trailer and pick it back up (if you want) when you are done.

    I'd do a rental 1st. See what is your minimal comfort level.

    I've been full time in Travel trailer 3 plus years now and love it.

    Rented out my home on the east coast.
    The only thing I miss is a washer and dryer

    Buddy just got back from a loop out west in an RV with wife and 2 kids.

    Bottom line - it will be his last RV trip ever. I was taught that same lesson by my dad 40 years ago. Nothing like the thrill of a micro closet that doubles as the shower and ****ter


    I am at the point of alternating - occasional night in a tent or back of my truck and alternate night in a hotel or B&B.

    My wife and I were in Alberta and had rented a car to do some sightseeing when we met a couple from AL at a turnout. Got to talking to them and they had rented a RV and were on their way to AK. Both were teachers and were taking a couple of months during the summer to make the trip. After that encounter, I got to noticing how many RV rentals that were on the road just from one rental company. Don't remember the name of the company but their logo had a blue background and had white lettering.

    You know how you know you love and trust someone? You’re willing to swap seats at 45mph and go back and poop while they drive.

    I think you are thinking of Cruise America.

    I was messin around on the internet a month ago checking out the Airstream site. I knew they were expensive but I did not know you could spend easily over $100,000 for one of them.

    too bad women are such a pain in the azz. My minimal comfort level is a folding chair and a log to sit on to take a dump.

    Of course I’m single, so a camper van would be perfect for my needs.
