OK, we are new to this site and excited to see what others are doing, where they are getting together and hope to join in on the activities soon. We have a 40' American Coach and love to travel. It has been nice traveling the country and look forward to doing more. We are looking forward to meeting new people that are "Friends of a Feather".
Hope to travel to an event and meet you soon.
Sept I am on my annual rock hounding trip.
this year I hope to run around Idaho, or and nevada.
I pick up a friend from the east in boise after a few days in oregon . There are a few spot
I missed last year and or could not find. Its going to be interesting. The history of the areas
is fabulous. Crazy colors and patterns are the rocks and fossils.
Bill and I want to replace the flooring in our RV. It's currently carpeted throughout and has two slides. We'd like to replace the main area with laminate, and keep the carpet in the cockpit, the bedroom and the large living area slide. Has anyone attempted to do this themselves and if so, any pointers? Has anyone used a local (San Diego, Orange County, Riverside County) installer to do it? If so, who?
What a week this has been! On Tuesday, July 27th, we picked up our 30' travel trailer! Donald and I were both nervous about how we were going to manuever it home but we did it! With teamwork and a little bit of patience, we were able to back up our trailer into our driveway! It only took us no more than 15 minutes!
So the last few days were filled with getting familiar with the RV testing out all the switches and making a list of items to purchase. After several hundred dollars, I think we are almost ready for our first trip on August 9th to Paso Robles. I am now working on planning our route to Paso Robles. We agreed to take the scenic route (Hwy 101) vs the I-5 to avoid the dreaded Grapevine pass. I posted a question in the forum regarding a fueling station off Hwy 101 either in Oxnard or Ventura. Well enough for now, very busy week and I want to post a few pictures!
Well we finally did it, we bought our very first RV! We settled on a 30' travel trailerWe finally did it, we bought our very first RV! We bought a 30' Surveyor Select by Foerst River. We figured our first RV should be travel trailer so we can park and still have our truck. It is probably a little too big for our first RV but we fell in love with the spacious living area and bathroom. We pick up the RV on Tuesday and that afternoon, we will have our first experience in backing up the trailer into our driveway! I am a little nervous about that but, my husband, Donald, is going to have to do all the driving. I'll let you all know how it goes!
In the meantime, I just registered us for the Paso Robles trip in August, Pismo Beach in September, and Palm springs in November. That gives me a few weeks to get the trailer ready to travel! So much to buy!

I am looking for some campgrounds in central to southern CA. Resorts are fine but looking to get to some campgrounds with the basics. I have a 35' 5th wheel. Most places seem to only want to take trailers or rigs under 26 feet. Any good places? Something in the woods would be great!
We area currently planning our Summer Rv trip for late August '13. During our last major RV adventure in July 2011, we went through 14 states from our home in Louisiana to Florida and up the East Coast to Pennsylvania and back down through the South. Our thoughts this trip was to see parts of the Midwest and up through the Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore and then down to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon and then back to Louisiana. Anyone know of RV Campsites that we should know about....please let us know

Hi everyone, Im trying to find canadian members, is there anyone out there.
This will be our first trip with the Rainbow RV club. We are real excited to meet others and have new friends. We currently live in Escondido and Palm Springs. This trip will be around a 45 min to 1 hr drive for us.
See you there,
Rick & Glenn
this a late entry for my rockhounding adventure last year. It was a long drive to oregon, but the views
of Mt Hood were worth it. The rocks were in my favour. I claimed many containers of common pink,tan opals,black, brown obsidians and some 150 million year old ammonite fossils. really cool to hold something that old in your hands. B-3 a nice 26ft tow behind did well going up and down all those back roads and a few dirt roads. I have started to make some simple jewerly from the stones I have collected and it is a slow process. I had to go home early due to the forest fires, but as we say they are rocks and they arent going anywhere. Till next trip.
My partner and I are really so new the glorious world of full-time RVing - our heads are spinning as to the number of Campgrounds out there.We're currently in PA - waiting for winter to blow out of here before taking off. The direction we go doesn't matter as much as having a plan.
SO: anyone have a favorite spot to share with us? We prefer boy/girl gathering spots, and second - would hope to possibly land one in need of camphosts, or maintenence or even a DJ/Karaoke duo (we do it all!) in exchange for a hookup. If anyone has any connections in that regard, please feel free to question me further! This is a friggin' fabulous site btw! Many thanks, Susie
My partner and I are looking at buying a RV and have no idea what kind we want. I thought checking out a site like this would give me an idea of what it would be like to be driving around the country. We like staying at nice resorts, in warm locations during the winter, but we miss our two dogs. The idea of diving through the South sounds like fun, but not sure we would feel comfortable staying at most trailer parks. Now staying at gay ones would be a different story. I'm thinking something on the small size would be easier for us to deal with, but I don't want to end up sleeping on a table either. This site seems like fun and I might pick up some ideas of how and where we would be using our first RV.
David and I are going to Sturgis for Bike Week August 2013. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding campgrounds? We appreciate any advice.
