FMCA membership number: F401591 (we joined in 2008) Ewen and Tracy Harvie

Our current motorhome:
2008 Fleetwood Revolution LE 40-foot

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Condo on wheels

The best thing about our motorhome:
The ability to do what we are doing now, traveling North America within a moment’s notice, the ability to come and go as you please. Visit without putting anyone out and traveling in style.

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
Rented two Class C’s and tented and trailered since 1978

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
Time to change careers and switch gears. A chance to clear our heads and observe other possibilities that we will pursue once the journey of a life time is over.

Our occupations:
Retired Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer’s

Children:
We have one daughter — Leesa now on her own.

We travel in our motorhome approximately eight months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re:
Going to start another career path.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
Yet to be determined …

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip or motorhoming memory:
Sierra Animal Shelter (Truth or Consequences, N.M.)

Our “dream” motorhome trip:
We are living it.

Our perfect day of motorhome travel would be:
Taking the good with the bad. Any bad day in an RV can beat a good day at work.

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Breakdowns with no RV service center that does warranty work.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Drivers who pass and pull back in within 5 feet of the front of the coach while traveling at 70 mph

The best addition or alteration we’ve made to our motorhome:
Motorcycle lift on rear to carry our motorcycle instead of towing a TOAD

If we could change one thing about our motorhome, it would be:
Not a thing

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
The pecking order that seems to exist according to your make and model of your coach. No paint, no entry into certain RV parks, etc.

When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Patience, patience, patience.

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Do your research, buy the books that apply to your interests and units. Use the Internet and take opinions with a grain of salt. That is what they are, opinions which are free and everyone loves to give them!

Our hobbies:
Reading, travel, driving, dogs, walking, biking, rollerblading, meeting travelers

Favorite restaurant: Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville

A celebrity we admire: The RV service manger and techs

Something others would be surprised to know about us:
We don’t talk shop about our past careers.

If we were awarded a shopping spree at the store of our choice, the store we’d choose is:
Victoria’s Secret! (I’d give Tracy my spree, too.)

Favorite campground: Banff National Park, Alberta

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Okanagan wineries, the beaches, the people

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Ice, bread, dog food, milk, beer, wine

Our advice to new motorhomers:
We would reiterate: Do your research, buy the books that apply to your interests and units. Use the Internet and take opinions with a grain of salt because that is what they are, opinions which are free and everyone loves to give them!

Behind our motorhome, we tow:
A 2004 Suzuki Burgman motorcycle on a Hydra-lift hydraulic lift

Pets that travel with us:
Jack and Cate — rescue pets

When we’re online, Web sites we like to visit include:
Car rental sites, http://freetrip.com/, http://www.weatherbug.com/, dilbert.com, www.factorytoursusa.com/full.htm, http://castanet.net/, http://www.multimap.com/, www.bankofcanada.ca/en/rates/exchange.html, http://www.xe.com/

A technical or travel tip we’d like to share with other motorhome owners:
Nothing beats learning on the fly. Carry some types of tools that you feel comfortable with and only fix what you feel comfortable with. Period! Avoid really helpful meaning RVer’s that seem to know and want to show but can walk away if it doesn’t work and may put you further in trouble.

We joined FMCA because:
To learn, meet people, and understand more about RVing
