Chuck, I look forward to your newsletter every week, I usually read it more than once during the week because of the information you provide us about our RV’s. Many thanks to you and your staff.

Chuck & staff,
Love the new format. Keep up the great job of keeping RV’ers up-to-date. Even though I am a Canadian RV’er, I really enjoy the articles, usually US based. I sincerely hope that on your next trip to the East coast, you make time to visit my home province, Newfoundland/Labrador

Nels, I wanted to visit there last summer when I made it all the way from Seattle to Nova Scotia. But I just ran out of time — winter was coming fast. Exploring Newfoundland is on my bucket list. — Chuck Woodbury, editor

I have just read about a bunch of crappy ads.
Did I get jipped? I don’t remember seeing any ads, I seldom notice ads on the internet, except those crappy ads that pop up in the middle of the screen and block out the page you are on.

Maybe I just need to get my peripheral vision checked. I simply read the content I came for and don’t look for distractions.

This is a great site. Thanks for all the effort you put in to keep it going,

Bob

Thanks for the nice comments, Bob. We appreciate them very much. That’s why we’re putting in all this “effort” (usually fun, but occasionally a pain when the new system doesn’t work like we want). But we’re making our website and newsletter even better every week — to keep our loyal readers and new (soon-to-be-loyal) readers coming back for more great RVing information and entertainment each week (and maybe even spread the word about RVtravel.com). Thanks for reading!
Diane
P.S. Don’t bother to get your peripheral vision checked — you’re doing just fine!

I thought the phrase “I go where I am towed to” belongs to Lil Guy
Tear Drop Trailers! My Lil Guy tear drop came with the phrase printed on the rear door that encloses the kitchen.

You might want to check with them and I am sure you know how to find them at their web-site, or call 1-877-545-4897.

Hi, Dorothy,
Thanks for writing with your concern. After an albeit brief search on the Little Guy website, I didn’t find anything which indicated that they have trademarked the saying “I go where I am towed to.” So, I think they’re just using a phrase which is public domain. In fact, the ad in our newsletter for that license plate frame is for Amazon (big surprise!), so if you have a concern about a trademark infringement, you might want to contact the company that produces the frames. Thanks for reading our newsletters, and have a great day! Diane

Personally, I think the basic content of the website outweighs the so called “Crappy Ads”. If Gary wants to become a Major Contributor, big enough to overcome the “Crappy Ads” then maybe these ads could be eliminated. I, for one, ignore them if they do not pertain to my RV interests. I do contribute, but not enough to request that these ads be eliminated. I like the new website and look forward to every Saturday. Thank you.

It takes way too long for a comment about an article to show up. If a comment is to correct an inaccurate or unsafe article, many people will have read the article in the hour or more that it takes for a comment to show up.

RV Staff

Hi Wayne. I wish we could just let the comments go through without moderation, but we can’t. Shortly after switching to our new server, we were hit by spammers from Russia. In a period of about 30 minutes, almost 700 comments came in, most for Viagra and related things. This happens to some degree all the time. As is, I get up early and moderate comments from my home in the Seattle area (when it’s already nine or ten in the East). Diane, our assistant editor, is a night owl. I don’t know that she ever sleeps! She moderates all… Read more »

Hi everyone!
Just a quick question – Is there no easy or inexpensive solution to the Internet reception problem while on the road? My satellite installer tells me satellite solutions are just too expensive to consider. What options do we have. Why can GM make a car that is Internet ready but we can’t get an RV to do the same? Thanks for your help! I read your newsletter every Saturday, and love the new format!!

RV Staff

Ray: We’ve tried satellite — and it is way too expensive, and often way to slow. We finally settled on using an cellular “hot spot,” and for the most part, depending on the cellular provider (ours is Verizon) it works well in most of the traveled areas we hit. Cost is a factor — we chew through a lot of megs of data, have two phones, two hot spots, and spend nearly $200 a month. Of course, we could cut that cost back if we dropped back on the size of the data plan. Another possibility is investigating data available… Read more »

AT&T has a hotspot that is the size of 4 credit Cards [stacked] if you are a AT&T customer it is very economical.
I am on it now and it has never fail me any place I have been and so far we have been in 19 states allover.

Sorry to see that this once great site is now nothing but crappy ads. Come on now, WORK AT HOME ? How is that RV related.

“WORK AT HOME” seems totally relevant to me. My early RV dream was to travel to scenic and interesting locations in my motor HOME and earn some money along the way. I look forward to those ads!

Thanks, Cathy! And thanks for reading our newsletters. Have a great day! Diane

We just renewed our subscription with the newsletter. It has been a very informative source of information for us. We are relatively new rv-er’s and one item in particular that has helped in our trips is the Air-Tabs that we purchased last year after our first trip. Before learning about them through your advertisements we were pushed over every time a Semi passed us. Now we barely know a truck is passing. Thanks for the tip!

Regarding the RV that got in an accident in California, he was cited for having a Class C drivers license in his 43 foot RV. As a California resident, a non-commercial Class B is required when driving an RV over 40 foot. The big question is, was the cited individual a California resident or from a different state that does not require a Class B? No one seems to know the answer… Please advice. Thanks!

I think the answer is that an RVer needs to be aware of the laws in the state where he is traveling, just as a car driver must.

Except that you are forgetting one important point when driving RV’s in other states versus your home state. That point is, your home state license is good in all 50 states as long as you have the correct class of license in your home state to drive that specific RV. It’s called reciprocity.
