Robert and Pamela Stephens, Bella Vista, Arkansas

FMCA membership number: F319308FMCA members Robert and Pamela Stephens

Our current motorhome: 1999 Monaco Diplomat

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Home away from home, Quick to Clean!

The best thing about our motorhome:
Allows us to travel the country!

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
Rented ones for trips

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
We wanted to travel! And take our home with us!

Our occupations:
Bob: Online RV Spots/camping website: www.pictorialcampgrounddirectory.com  www.campgroundimages.com ; www.pamelastephens.com. He is also a retired sheriff and a former Real Estate Agent. Pam: business owner, retreat/conference speaker/writer.

Children, grandchildren: We have two grown daughters and two grandsons living in California.

We travel in our motorhome:
Approximately two months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re enjoying our home in the Ozarks of Arkansas! Running our businesses, genealogy research.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
Maine; Banff, Alberta, Canada; Dam Site Park on Beaver Lake, Arkansas; and any place that is gorgeous!

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip or motorhoming memory:
Belfast, Maine, RVing right next to the ocean, having lobster brought to our door; also, exploring Camden and Bar Harbor, Maine.

Our dream motorhome trip:
We love to see our beautiful country: beaches, free diesel would be nice!

Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Travel for three to four hours, set up, explore the area, either cook a great meal or find a fantastic restaurant in the area, and sleep in our own bed (never have to tote suitcases in and out of a hotel).

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Pulling into a terrible “RV” park that had uneven pad and only 30-amp electric. That’s why we started CampgroundImages.com, a pictorial campground directory), so we could SEE the RV park before we landed there.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
No Wi-Fi or Internet in the area

The best addition or alteration we’ve made to our motorhome:
Banks Power System!

If we could change one thing about our motorhome:
Get a new diesel model, perhaps an Alpine or a Country Coach.

When driving a motorhome the most important thing to remember is:
Be careful! Don’t be in a hurry! Double check before you take off!

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Talk to owners before you buy one. Some motorhomes are much better than others; some require
More “repair” than others.

Our hobbies:
Pam: genealogy, scrapbooking. Bob: photography, Texas hold-em, auctions.

Favorite restaurants:
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Bonefish Grill, Abuelo’s Mexican testaurant (all nearby us); Claim Jumper, In-N-Out-Burger (California)

A celebrity we admire: Sean Hannity

Something others would be surprised to know about us:
We’ve been married 41 years!

If we were awarded a shopping spree at the store of our choice, the store we’d choose is:
Best Buy or QVC

Favorite campground:
We have many. The Moorings in Belfast, Maine (get lobster right at your door); Dam Site Park at Beaver Lake, Ark.; and Maumelle Lake, an Army Corps park near Little Rock, Ark.

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Contact me, I’ve been to them all: Devil’s Den State Park, Dam Site Park, Beaver Lake; Bull Shoals-White River State Park.

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Steaks, ice cream, white wine

Our advice to new motorhomers:
Enjoy it! Keep duplicate cosmetics, hair dryers, etc. in the motorhome so you don’t have to move back and forth from home to motorhome.

Behind our motorhome, we tow: aToyota Tundra

When we’re online, Web sites we like to visit:
Google, QVC, PictorialCampgroundDirectory.com

We joined FMCA because: We love it, and the magazine!
