The Clintoon reminded me of my inaugural RV trip to pick up my rig and drive back home. I decided to get some nap time at an Interstate rest area and parked in the truck area. When my CO2 alarm went off at 3am I thought the world was ending or that was the signal that I had no idea what I just bought. All I remembered from my 2 hour delivery discussion was that Digiornio pizzas were pretty good. I quickly came back to my new reality and found the source of the noise and figured I had been sucking in truck exhaust but I learned my second RV lesson and knew that one important safety feature worked. I haven’t found this addition to your newsletter very entertaining but now it seems to have crossed into the realm of bad ideas. Something to consider as we were all newbies once.

Does anyone have information regarding the availability of COVID vaccine (when distributed) for full timers? Will you have to receive one in your domicile or will we able to get one wherever we are?

When I look at the cartoon of the semis and a car with travel trailer that was us. We did that outside of Des Moine. My mother was so thrilled to stay the nite at a rest stop in an RV because it was something she never did before. She passed away this year but that incident happened one year ago last July. Thanks for the memory. I need to save that cartoon.

I recall reading somewhere in this newsletter that the folks that prefer not to subscribe will be getting a lite version of it. Be that as it may the continued treatment of readers in that fashion may result in reduced readership altogether in the future as they see less and less useful information from this newsletter. I, myself, do not subscribe to many things as a rule and along with treatment like that and the blowback from the Nanci Dixon article I’m wondering how long it will be before the free edition is eliminated altogether, either due to reduced content, lack of interest by readers, or the management’s elimination of readers that don’t agree with the political, yes – it is political, nature of some of the editorial pieces/articles. Because, you know, when you print things that are controversial you get controversy. So if you can’t take the heat perhaps you should stay out of the kitchen.
For myself, I now bypass the editorial and some articles because I have seen how well…

I guess you have to be a paying sub to win the rv picture Amazon gift.

Where do you get that idea, Drew? This contest is open to anyone/everyone. When folks send in a picture of their RV, we don’t go through the members/paid subscribers list and sort out the ones who aren’t members. 😯 In fact, when someone other than the RV owner (one of our writers, for example) sends in a picture of an RV, we have no idea who it belongs to unless/until we hear from the RV owner with a picture proving it’s theirs. When we suggest you sign up for an email alert for our newsletters, you don’t need to donate anything to get on our mailing list. In fact, 97% of our readers don’t donate, but they can enter the contest. Take care. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

So if I can’t get my edition until 9am or after because of Nanci Dixon’s fallout from her editorials, I’ll just ignore that section. According to Chuck Woodbury- it’s his newsletter so he’ll do what he wants. You’re drinking the koolaid.

What does any of that have to do with the “Is this your RV” contest, Drew? The contest runs until 9:00 p.m., Pacific time. I’m not following you here. Sorry. —Diane at RVtravel.com

Where do you see that, Tom? In the paragraph in the newsletter and on the contest page, I’m seeing 9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard time. I’m confused. —Diane at RVtravel.com

Hijack here:
Since this is on the subject of “IsThis Your RV”.
I posted on I think last weeks newsletter as I wasn’t able to read it until today.
How can you post a photo of somebody’s RV and then you mention how two or three people from the previous week claimed the prize? For one RV??

Tim Palmer — We post a reader RV photo every day of the week, in our RVtravel.com weekend newsletters and in our Monday through Friday RV Daily Tips newsletter. So that’s seven RVs a week. So the math is pretty simple about how two or three people can win by identifying their RV in one of those issues.

Yep, what Chuck said. So we could technically have 7 winners each week. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Hi,Tim. So there’s a new photo and new contest every day. Whoever owns the RV has to respond by 9 p.m. Pacific time that night. If you haven’t sent in a picture of your RV yet, better get to it. A $25 certificate from Amazon would be a nice Christmas present. Take care. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Maybe it’s just me, but I do not agree with people letting the animals lay on the dashboard of their RV’s or tow vehicles. A sudden stop or swerve could case the animal to be thrown around the vehicle, not to mention what would happen in a crash.
I also see many people driving with their pets on their laps that can distract the driver and cause an accident.
We LOVE our dog and he is always restrained when traveling. There are safe restraints that attach to the seatbelts just for this purpose.
