The RVs of RVtravel.com readers and how they use them
Issue 66; Posted Nov. 19, 2016
Cathy and John Adler, Full-timers
Planning ahead for when we would sell our campground in the Black Hills, we purchased a 2007 Winnebago Adventurer a year and a half ago. In June 2016, we sold the business and now live full-time in our motorhome. We love it!
Our motorhome (“Elroy”) has a great floor plan with opposing slides in the living room which allows the TV to be across from the reclining love seat. No getting a sore neck from having to turn our heads to watch TV. We like the large double door refrigerator/freezer and large kitchen with two pull-up counter extensions.
While we weren’t looking to get an RV with a washer/dryer, we have found that having one in the motorhome is well worth it. With a 7-foot ceiling and lots of storage, we have more than enough space to call this home. We have everything we need in our Winnebago to make this our own comfy tiny house. We tow a Jeep (“Judy”). The picture was taken at Wind Cave National Park, S.D.
See you on the road!

I have a 2008 33-foot Gulf Stream Crescendo with a full wall slide on the driver side and a rear bedroom slide on the passenger side. This motorhome works well for me and my two dogs. It probably wouldn’t work for a large family, as it only sleeps four; but for a couple and dogs, it would be great. As you can see, I pull a 2007 Hummer H3 Adventure.
My favorite place to visit is the San Juan district of the Rocky Mountains. This would include Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Telluride, Lake City and others. I unhook my Hummer and four-wheel drive all over the place. A lot of history here: ghost towns, old mines and buildings.
I also use my motorhome to camp out while I’m doing Ham Radio public service events in Arizona. I hope to expand out to Colorado and Nevada when I can afford it.
I generally like camping out, but sometimes I’ll go to a conventional campground. It usually depends on how crowded the boondocking areas are or sometimes I just get a wild hair and decide to pay for a crowded campground.

Roger and Nancy Marble, Ohio
This is our 2016 Coachmen 23QB. With our home in Ohio, my wife, Nancy, and I travel mostly east of Mississippi and north of the Mason-Dixon line, except for Perry, Georgia. Many trips are to large RV conventions and rallies, where I give seminars on RV tires and on genealogy.
This is our second Class C. It is perfect for the two of us as we don’t do much “camping” at just one location but do put many miles on the unit. This smaller RV can go just about anywhere a large pickup can go, and can even turn around by backing into a driveway.
