What is the best speed to drive your RV? Here are the various issue to consider and why you might want to slow down just a hair.
There has been an increase in RV sales due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is important to buy smartly and not make a bad financial decision. Here’s how…
In this guide, I wanted to take some time and research and put together a one-stop guide, with everything in one place, on the different chassis options as well as the various options for improving the ride quality.
2 years ago, I did a big remodeling project to the interior of my 2002 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. I put down all new flooring and replaced all the aging furniture. I used Shop4Seats to get 2 new captain’s chairs, a new couch, and a new dinette booth. Specifically:2 De Leon II Captain’s ChairsLivingston RV DinetteBelmont RV
4 years ago, I made a short tour video of our 2002 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. At the time, I had only owned it for a few months and I hadn’t done much to it. As of today, I have now owned this rig for about 4.5 years. During that time, I’ve done quite a bit to
My Class A motorhome had the original VOM78 monochrome backup monitor from Voyager, and it was failing. Here’s how I replaced it with a new LED monitor.
I’m not dead. COVID didn’t get me. I still own an RV. 😉 In fact, I’m doing just fine. But yes, it has now been over a year since I posted anything to this blog. And here I am breaking my silence. And letting you know what I’m thinking here with regard to HappilyRV.What Happened?Life happened. See, I own and
If you go out and search Google for using the RV as a mobile office, you’ll find a lot of different setups. But, one thing is most common… Most of them are full-timers. Obviously, when you LIVE in your RV, you’re going to have a mobile office. And certainly, there are some very creative RV
When we bought our HR Vacationer motorhome, it came with a washer/dryer combo machine. The old model was a Splendide 2000 WD802. The machine worked, but I could tell that the previous owner of our motorhome bought the machine secondhand. It was a bit dinged up, had some rust marks on it. When I had
This was our second year going to the RV Entrepreneur Summit put on by Heath and Alyssa. We had a blast the first time we drove to Texas in March of 2018, so we decided to do it again. This time the drive was shorter – Lake Guntersville, Alabama. We had a blast again, but
After some deliberation and brainstorming, I have decided to change our domain name (and brand) from RV Family Travel to Happily RV. From… to… I thought I would quickly explain why I made this change. RV Family Travel was a domain that my wife (Malika) registered one day without me being involved. It is actually
I have to admit… this is a wee bit embarrassing. The last post to this blog was back in August of 2018. About 8 months ago. In the middle of a pretty epic summer trip in the RV. I posted from Monument Valley. Then… nothing. It isn’t as if nothing happened after that. 🙂 Monument
We couldn’t come out west and not stop into Monument Valley. So, after Mesa Verde, that was our next stop. I had only scheduled 2 nights (one full day) to stay here, however. While the scenery is epic, truth is there isn’t a lot to do. There are some commercial tours if you like that
After a short hop from Durango, we planted the RV into the Mesa Verde RV Resort right outside the main entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. The RV park itself was pretty nice. It had a nice pool, 2 hot tubs. Even though I only used them once (since we had full hookups), but bathroom
As I write this post, we’re actually much further down the road in our trip. We got some catch-up to do. Blogging while you’re traveling is a tad harder than I thought. 🙂 Plus, I’ve got a business to run. Our first main stop was Durango, Colorado. After 10 straight days of driving, Durango was
Last I checked in here on the blog, we were in Little Rock, Arkansas and weathering some insanely hot temperatures. From there, we continued west through Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle, New Mexico… to where we sit now in Durango, Colorado. And yes, it is MUCH nicer here. Currently 86 degrees, low humidity. The wife is
We left on our big summer trip out west on Wednesday. I decided not to take I-10 this time, but instead to head up to Atlanta, then catch I-20 and, ultimately, I-40 west. We were grabbing one-nighters the whole way. Not driving particularly far each day. I’ve never been a fan of driving very long
It is a rare motorhome owner, most likely, that seeks to replace their furniture. After all, it isn’t a cheap thing to do and the financial ROI simply isn’t there. When it comes to used motorhomes and trailers, almost all of them have the exact same furniture they were built with. But, the ones built
We’re about to embark on our longest RV trip yet. Here’s the plan…
While I still have some things to do for our remodeling, I am at a point where I can call this reflooring project essentially complete. So, I thought I’d make a nice wrap up post here. How much did I end up spending on the job? How long did it take? And… am I happy
In the final video in this series on reflooring the RV, we bring the project to a close. After installing the carpeting, I still had some things to do to wrap things up. Namely… Install quarter round trim around the edges of the vinyl plank flooring. Install transition pieces at the end of the carpet
