RVs: Handy Tips

Two years ago we sat in an RV of a friend of a friend contemplating buying it. It was a passing fancy, but it was fun to look at the bathroom, open the cabinets and watch the walls whir out as the owner flipped the switch to show how we could make it expand. My son mentioned buying an RV this week. I don’t know where he got that idea.

There is something about the idea of driving a vehicle you can live in around the country that has some appeal. But, on the other hand, every time I see one, I think of the gas they use.

Here is a resource I came across if you are thinking about putting an RV in your future. DMV.org has pages devoted to RVs. There is a link devoted to stocking an RV. Another tells you how and where to park it. Another gives handy info about how to drive it and not get stuck under overpasses. I read about a particular overpass in Colorado where RVs are always getting stuck which gave me the idea for this post. I can’t find the specifics now that I’m looking. Just be careful.

Maybe I think of RVs from time time since I once had fantasies of becoming a truck driver. Since the car I’m most comfortable driving is a Toyota Corolla, I’m not sure how that would have worked out.
