A helpful hint to anyone planning on travelling in an RV, as suggested by someone other than the two RV Gypsies: "Hi, I'm in GA practicing for full time. I bought a 5th wheel last summer and am "camping" on a friends property to work out bugs and issues before setting of.( and saving/searching for the right truck). I would recommend doing this to other potential full-time RVers, as it has really been helpful in making modifications and fixing bugs before begging the FT lifestyle." - Great suggestion! Actually when the two RV Gypsies first bought their RV, they took only short week-end trips to test everything out before they hit the road. (That's the photos that are under the Photos button above).

Rand McNally makes a GPS just for RVs. You enter your RV model, make, size, weight, the amount of propane you are carrying, height, tow vehicle type and model, and other such information and it helps keep you away from low bridges, roads that have a weight limit, dead end streets, and such. The two RV Gypsies feel much more secure in driving with this GPS.

If you are driving an RV to Alaska, be sure to read this page about the Alaska Highway in the Yukon Territory.

FUEL
1. importantnote: If you are in an RV and traveling on I-75 in Florida, the Flying J at exit 285 is very poorly designed for RV's trying to get diesel fuel, in the opinion of the two RV Gypsies. There are only two pumps, and although the two RV Gypsies were only second in line, they almost blocked the entrance while waiting. Plus, the width of the space between the pumps is just barely wide enough for a big class A coach. If an RV were to be there getting propane, that RV would block entry to one of the diesel pumps. There is a truck entrance to separate pumps, and the two RV Gypsies recommend RVers use that area. Another point of interest is that the cost of the diesel on the day that the two RV Gypsies stopped at this Flying J was 20 cents per gallon higher than just down the road.
