Our perfect day of motorhome travel:

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Going through Atlanta when the oxygen sensors went bad and the engine lost all power in the middle lane of Interstate 75.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Campgrounds that will not let you wash your motorhome

The best addition or alteration we’ve made to our motorhome:
Decorating to make it our home away from home

If we could change one thing about our motorhome, it would be:
Remove all carpet except in the bedroom

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
Too many things to list after 18 years

When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Always drive a quarter-mile ahead of the motorhome.

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Keep traveling and experience at least one new location each year.

Our hobbies:
Charles: musician, golf and all sports. Sheila: working out and shopping.

What’s the best motorhoming advice you’ve ever received:
Be good to your coach and it will be good to you.

Our advice to new motorhomers:
Try a small gas-powered motorhome (used or inexpensive) first to see all that goes with motorhoming.

Behind our motorhome, we tow:
A 2003 Jeep Liberty with a tow bar

Pets that travel with us: Maddie, a golden retriever

We joined FMCA because:
They give you valuable info and the road service through Coach-Net is outstanding.
