Thinking About a Smaller RV

Now that we’re “part-time” RVers we’re thinking about getting a smaller RV. There are so many choices and so many factors to consider in the decision!

On one hand we’d love to have a van-sized RV like a Pleasure Way because they’re so easy to drive and park, maneuverable, fit into any small RV space [...]

The Weather, Trip Planning, etc.
