FMCA members Darla and Earl Gleason  travel in a Newmar Dutch Star motorhome.FMCA membership number: F269170 (we joined in 1999)

Our current motorhome:
A 2006 Newmar Dutch Star 4024, 40-foot 8 inches long with four slides

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
We love it!

The best thing about our motorhome:
The comfort of having your “home” with you. There is nothing else like it for traveling.

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
A 1999 National RV Tradewinds

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
We outgrew our fifth-wheel.

Our occupations:
Earl: retired firefighter. He was also a business owner: music, farms, ranches, rentals, etc. Darla retired from AT&T as office manager.

Children:
We have six sons, 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

We travel in the motorhome approximately:
Ten months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming we’re ranching, farming or having friends over for a meal, music and a visit.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana, Arkansas, California, Indiana -- there are so many places to see. And Earl sings at state fairs, rodeos, cowboy shows, etc.

Our “dream” motorhome trip:
Southeast USA to see plantation homes, then up the East Coast to visit places, friends and family.

Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Go 250 to 300 miles anywhere in our beautiful country. Sunny but cool weather. Good RV park at the end of the day.

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Our Tradewinds heated badly during an August trip north of Flagstaff, Ariz., to Utah through Page, Ariz.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Rude and obnoxious fellow motorhomers who don’t control pets’ barking and leave droppings for someone else to deal with. Unruly kids.

The best addition we’ve made to our motorhome:
Really nothing to speak of. We had decided what coach, size, etc., we wanted before purchasing.

If we could change one thing about our motorhome:
Nothing comes to mind except the recliner is not comfortable. And the TV is too high to view comfortably. Not good mileage for fuel.

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
How much fun, convenient and comfortable it is. We fly on some occasions and it’s very unhandy. We’re used to taking home with us.

When driving the motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Be a courteous, responsible driver. Think safety first. Keep your motor coach well maintained to avoid problems.

Our advice to other motorhome owners:
Just give yourself plenty of time and stay cool (tempered, that is). Enjoy.

Our hobbies:
Music, reading, horses, meeting people

Favorite restaurant:
We rarely use one. We take prepared enchiladas and other foods and grill out a lot.

A celebrity we admire:
The Bar D Wranglers, Durango, Colo.

Something others would be surprised to know about us:
Nothing, really. We are just a couple of regular folks. We enjoy meeting people.

If we were awarded a shopping spree at the store of our choice:
We’d pick Camping World or Wal-Mart, I guess, or getting to pick out another Newmar coach!

Favorite campground:
In Fredericksburg, Texas. We try to go everywhere in that area.

When motorhomers visit our state, they should be sure to see:
Many things. Too many to list. New Mexico is very diverse.

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator:
Water, juice, salad stuff, milk, eggs, bread, butter, cheese

Our advice to new motorhome owners:
Do your research before you buy. List all the things you want in a motorhome. Don’t get in a hurry. You will never find on you like 100 percent.

Behind our motorhome, we tow:
A 2000 Jeep Wranger Sahara. We love it. Bought it new. It only has 36,000 miles on it, but has been towed a lot more.

Pets that travel with us:
Two Boston terriers (15 years old now)

When we’re online, Web sites we like to visit:
Anything about music (cowboy and Western). We take a laptop to use for business more than anything and to keep in touch with friends and family.

A technical or lifestyle tip we’d like to share with other motor coach owners:
Always have any supplies, belts, etc. that you may need -- bulb replacements and things of that sort. And fluids such as oil and coolant. Keep the coach maintained and serviced regularly to help prevent problems on the road.

We joined FMCA because:
We liked the services offered and knowing there are a lot of us to meet all over the country. And FMCA people help each other if needed.

Other comments:
Traveling in a motorhome is the best way to see our great country and to meet people everywhere. Most RVers are like one big family. There are exceptions, of course.
