A Holiday Rambler Admiral is Joyce and Rick Eagle's first motorhome. FMCA membership number:  F393316 (we joined in 2007)

Our current motorhome: 
2006 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE, 36-foot

Three words that best describe our motorhome: 
Our Travel Nest

The best thing about our motorhome: 
The bath and a half

Other motorhomes we’ve owned: 
This is our first motorhome.

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
The ease of travel, setup and tear down. It is nice for those things to be easier as we get older.

Our occupations:
Rick is director of customer service for a software company. Joyce is currently a homemaker but has had various jobs in the past, such as an accounting clerk, receptionist/office assistant, Wilton instructor, floral designer and lease analyst.

Children:
We have three grown sons. Chad who is serving in the U.S. Air Force. Ryan is a graphic designer and Joshua is in his senior year of college studying IT Internet security. Chad and his wife, Jodi, have given us three terrific grandchildren, Makenna, Braeden and Kayleigh.

We travel in our motorhome:
Approximately two months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re either working, staying home or at church.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:  
Lancaster, Pa., and Myrtle Beach, S.C., are special but really anywhere we travel to becomes special in some way because we are doing it together. We love what we do and we are doing what we love … RVing.

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip: 
Traveling last summer to Goshen, Ind., to the HRRVC International Rally and on the way back attending an RV.Net rally in Ohio at Mohican with a six-mile canoe trip. What adventures!

Our “dream” motorhome trip: 
To travel full-time just seeing the country, including Alaska.

Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Sunshine, 70- to 75-degree temps and gas at around $1 to 1.50 per gallon.

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Last weekend when I discovered we had mice in the motorhome. Man, those critters can destroy a lot in a short amount of time as well as make an awful mess to clean. We caught two of them.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
People who walk through others’ campsites and also unfriendly or rude folks.

The best addition or alteration we’ve made to our motorhome: 
Our Progressive Industries surge protector and the Pressure Pro systems. They have both already saved us from potential disasters.

If we could change one thing about our motorhome, it would be:
To have more closet space. That is the one thing they really skimped on in this unit. It would never work if we full-timed.

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
The importance of surge protectors and tire monitors.

When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
To check your mirrors and your cameras and just relax. Being tense tires you out.

Our advice for other motorhome owners: 
Enjoy life and each other, for NO ONE is promised tomorrow. Life is too short to spend it being unhappy. Do what you love and love what you do.

Our hobbies:
Rick likes to do woodworking and photography and I like to paint, make crafts, cook/bake and decorate cakes.

Favorite restaurant: Bonefish

A celebrity we admire: Billy Graham

Something others would be surprised to know about us:  
When we got married in 1971, we eloped at ages 17 and 20. We are still married more than 37 years later.

If we were awarded a shopping spree at the store of our choice, the store we’d choose is: 
Probably Wal-Mart because they have the largest selection including food.

Favorite campground:   
Bethpage Camp-Resort, Urbanna, Va.

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see: 
Williamsburg and Skyline Drive

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling: 
Milk, lunchmeat and cheese. I usually keep a well-stocked fridge and pantry, as I usually cook. We rarely eat out.

Our advice to new motorhomers: 
If you buy it, USE IT. The motorhome is absolutely the best way to travel!

Behind our motorhome, we tow:
We have purchased a tow bar but have yet to purchase the towed car. We would love to get a Smart car, Saturn or Honda CRV.

Pets that travel with us:
Two dogs: Heidi, our mini schnauzer and Paco, our son’s Chihuahua

When we’re online, Web sites we like to visit: 
FMCA.com, goodsamclub.com, IRV2.com, HGTV.com, foodnetwork.com, diynetwork.com and msnbc.com   

A technical or travel tip we’d like to share with other motorhome owners:
We have found the greatest kennel for our dogs. It is a cloth kennel that collapses to about 1 inch thick and slides into a zippered pouch for storage. Very easy set up and easy to put away. We found it at Bed Bath & Beyond in 2008. It is the most compact kennel we have had and it works great. I only saw one size and that would be for a small to medium dog. These have worked so much better than the collapsible metal crates or bulky plastic kennels as they take up very little space when not in use.

We joined FMCA because:   
We were interested in an organization that covers all motorhomes and not just one kind. Also, so that we could get more information about motorhoming and the FMCA rallies. Your rallies seem to be the best and we hope to get to one soon if this economy will ever rebound.

Other comments: 
I am enjoying the new forums at FMCA.com. I just wish more people would join in on the posting. A lot of good information can be passed along that way.
