We own a 5th wheel and I filmed our first video. Yesterday was a fun day.  We Took ownership of our travel home and received a great walk-through from the RV tech.  He was patient with all of my questions and pointed out every detail on owning and maintaining a new RV.  I feel much better about moving in now.  It’s my opinion that an RV is a pretty simple piece of machinery.  Let’s see if my opinion remains the same after some time living in it!

In the afternoon after our RV closing and walk-through, we visited a few RV parks / campgrounds to find a place to park for our final months of regular employment.

I got a call this morning from the manager of a campground informing us that a spot we found was available if we want it.  WE WANT IT!

FOUND THE PLACE!!!  It’s actually a campground and not a trailer park!  The folks at the front desk were smiling when we walked in and we were chatting like best friends within minutes.  Great people, great place, great facilities.  The boss and I fell in love with it immediately and had our minds made up in minutes.

The desk greeting went as follows:  walked in and greeted with a smiling face and a welcome.  A minute or 2 were spent explaining the grounds and availability.  It was mentioned that we arrived at a great time because a lot with a view of a lake was expected to be opening that day or the next.  We briefly discussed length of stay and rates to make sure we stayed in budget.  We were then offered a golf cart tour of the place.

The park is beautiful, clean, well kept and the lots are much farther apart than any we had yet visited.  We were informed that the max length of stay was 6 months although the rules were in the process of changing due to new arrangements made with the city.  This 6-month only policy excited us!  We are going to be living amongst travelers!!  I realize that most are “snowbirds” spending the winter in Florida but I’m sure there are some adventure seekers and US travelers among them.  We have so much to learn…it would be nice to collect advice of others who have already learned the ropes.

Lots of activities, heated pool, clean facilities (laundry, clubhouse, library, pool tables, outdoor sport courts, large kitchen access, and more).  The place is under 10 miles from both of our places of business.  We are excited.

Next steps are 1)closing the deal and booking our spot 2)having the RV delivered and getting moved in!  3)getting moved out of our home and finding great renters to move in !!  Time to stop typing and list the house available for rent for August 1.  Nothing more interesting than working on a tight deadline!!!
