RVacationer Adventure Videos :
Below are links to our Youtube channel videos that cover our more recent adventures across the United States and Canada in our 40 foot diesel pusher flat towing a Honda Civic. Our adventures have taken us to all 50 states. We hope you enjoy our RVacationer adventure, experience, repair and maintenance videos. Please watch our video adventures and check out our blog at RVacationer blog-posts .
RV Tire Safety | TST TPMS 507 with repeater
Norma and I decided the risk isn’t worth the savings of NOT having a tire pressure monitoring system. I would much rather have a heads up before something happens, rather than the disaster of a blow-out in a remote area of some national park or native American reservation getting to a national park.
Huntsville Alabama’s best RV parks
October 2019 our opinion is based on convenience to local attractions, convenience to Interstate access, and convenience to city amenities like Restaurants, shopping, museums, VBCC, etc.
Shakedown before Savannah
We made another shakedown run to Lake Guntersville State Park in Alabama before our next week long trip to Savannah GA. We saw a lot of beautiful sunsets, wildlife, lake views, and did a little pickin’ and grinin’ in the evening before quiet time of course. The shakedown test was mostly for the new RV Armor roof and we got enough rain to thoroughly test the leak-proof-ness of the new roof.
RV Park Review Guntersville AL
This park is very nice, quiet, and in a good location. It’s not on the lake but within a couple of miles of the lake and downtown Guntersville AL. It is far enough away to be quiet and relaxing but close enough to a good RV repair shop, grocery stores, fast food, or nice sit down restaurants. It is also reasonably priced for short term or long term stays.
RV ARMOR ROOF
Our 2002 Dutch Star was in need of much love concerning the condition of its roof. We are completely happy with our new roof system installed by RV Armor. They actually came to my location rather than me having to drive to them and stay in a hotel while they work. Check out the video.
Cook and Drive
Norma’s delicious crock pot Roast, potatoes, and carrots meal is a wonderful treat after a long day of driving the RV. Then the crock pot peach cobbler makes the day. Both can be cooked while driving the motorhome if you have a generator that will support it. It’s wonderful to have a good nutritious meal ready to eat when you’re all setup for the night and you don’t have to worry about cooking or very little cleanup.
Please consider subscribing and give us a thumbs up if you like this video. Please let us know in the video comments what you do for your meal after a long day of driving and setting up your rig.
We created a RVacationer channel playlist with all our videos from our 2019 summer Alabama to Canada trip. Please like and subscribe of you feel so inclined. It would really mean a lot to us to hear and learn from you as well. Thanks

Seafood Thanksgiving tradition
We started a new tradition for Thanksgiving week. We found a campground that we love that is far enough away to be quiet, but close enough to be 15 minutes from the Beach and some great restaurants.
Been There, Done That !
Over our decades of RVing across the U.S.A. We have had a few “trials” and difficult situations. Please give the video a watch to hear about our shutting down the MA turnpike, GPS getting us to a small community trailer park instead of the KOA, flooding the camper (twice), using Social Media for help, Notify your Bank, etc. Hopefully you can learn from our mistakes.
Enjoy 39 years of traveling with us as we go back through our photo albums and put together years of visiting places like Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Monument Valley, Yosemite, Mt St Helens, Portland Maine, Harrisburg & Lancaster PA, and many other adventures in our variety of trailers and now our motor home.
Continued from Lake Guntersville drive through last week. We are actually camping here this weekend in April 2019. We had to deal with stormy weather including tornado watches in the area overnight. Never the best part of camping, but we do walk you through the campground in more detail.
Take a test drive with us through our favorite local ( to us ) North Alabama State Park. We test our Garmin RV770LMT-S GPS system and figure out how it works as well as see some beautiful views of Lake Guntersville, and some wildlife as well.

Walk Through our 2002 Newmar Dutch Star and see how we live when we are on the road during our country wide adventures. Our rig is a 40 foot diesel pusher and we flat tow a 2008 Honda Civic ( over 18,000 miles so far ).
We enjoyed the day in Chattanooga Tennessee with RVing friends, and even met a couple from Peggy’s Cove Nova Scotia where we will be this summer and made friends instantly.
Who we are and where we come from and where we’ve been. We aren’t full timers, but are long trip takers. Norma is off every summer, and I can work from anywhere there is stable wi-fi within reach.
Getting the Dutch Star out of storage and heading to the service center for an oil, filter, lube, tire-check, and generator service for our next big road trip to Canada.
How we plan our long cross country multi-stop trips. We use an online tool called rvtripwizard.com. Watch the video to see a little of how it works.
We went to the 2019 Birmingham Alabama RV Super Show. There were lots of trailers, 5th wheels and motor homes to see new features and options available for those of you who may be looking to get into the RV lifestyle.
We visited the 2019 Huntsville Alabama RV Super Show. The event was packed and we had to wait an hour or so to just find a parking spot anywhere close to the Civic Center.
We removed the carpeting from our Dutch Star and replaced it with engineered vinyl plank. It looks much lighter and bigger than it did before.
We’ve been extremely fortunate to visit all 50 states. In our early days when our children were small, we drove a pick up pulling a pop-up to Los Angeles, Pacific Ocean state park, and we haven’t stopped RVing since.
