Ask me anything after 8k mile/6 wk/26 state road trip

We finally did our six week road trip, and really learned a lot. This time last year, we had never owned an RV. In an effort to pay it forward And help this forum add useful information, I’d like to share and help other campers. Ask me anything about my experience. I know there are plenty of full timers with this some of experience here and appreciate all their input too. Hopefully this is helpful to fellow greenhorns, newbies and dream planners.

We towed a TT from SoCal and focused on the beaches of the east Coast. We took 6 weeks and traveled over 8000 miles through 26 states. From roads to avoid to ferry crossings to the Chesapeake bay tunnel to maneuvering in NYC, we’ve done it. Getting gas with a TT, grocery runs, overnighting...what works, what doesn’t, what to avoid and what surprised us.

Ask me anything
TV - 2002 GMC Yukon XL 2500, 8.1 liter (496ci), 4L85e & positraction with 3.73 gears
TT - 2013 Dutchmen Aspen Trail 3130 QBS
Drinks of choice: woodford reserve, knob creek & any great bourbon-just about any of San Diego’s craft beer and Pabst Blue Ribbon
