Private RV resorts vs. state parks

We just returned from a week-long trip in our Coachmen Apex Nano travel trailer to Williamsburg, Va. and Washington, D.C. It was the longest trip we’ve taken in the camper so far, and I’m happy to report it was a … Continue reading

Camp Site Review: Edisto Beach State Park

We’re just finishing up our Spring Break, where we had a chance to sneak down to Edisto Beach State Park for a few days with the camper! It was the A) longest trip we’ve taken the camper so far and B) the farthest away from home.

We camped at Edisto Beach State Park from Sat. – Tues., having made our reservations months in advance (RV camping in state parks is not always for the spontaneous because the spots fill up so fast!).

Our Travel Trailer Wish List

So, we’re not-so-patiently waiting for the arrival of our first travel trailer! We’ve ordered the one we want through a local dealership, and now we’re just waiting on it to come in. (Is it here yet? Is it here yet? Is it here YET?!).

We’ve been given an estimate of January 2017 for our travel trailer to arrive. I fully expect us to be waiting at the dealership with balloons and a cake to help make it feel more welcome when it gets to us!

In the meantime, Gib and I are making wish lists galore of things we want to have in our travel trailer. Obviously, there’s a LOT we need to get, and we’re already plunking down a chunk of change just investing in the trailer alone.

So we’re trying to be smart and not blow our entire vacation budget in one fell swoop by looking for things we know we need for our first trips, and things we can purchase down the road. Continue reading

Camper shopping time

It’s a beautiful fall Saturday here in S.C. – a perfect day to go camper shopping! We spoke to a few sales associates at two different RV stores in the area, and narrowed down some options we might like to consider.

Talk about overwhelming! First of all, when we first walked in to the first place, we were completely bowled over by the range of RVs and campers on the lot. From your $500,000 tour busses to the most basic of pop-ups, it was all there.

Not going to lie. We took a few minutes to walk onto one of the mac daddy tour busses and look around. I could definitely get used to that kind of style. A girl can dream, right?

But alas, we needed something a little less, ah, pricey/big/rockstar for our crew.
