Let's hear it from the ladies

I don't see too many posts on here from the women. Sometimes these technical posts get pretty boring. Ladies - what do you like best about RVing? What mods and decorating ideas have helped you function best? Any additional thoughts are most welcome!

Love RVing! I tow! I back the camper in the sites! I help set up! Since kitchen counter space was limited, we bought a kitchen cart to add for storage and counter space! Some of our best meals are when we are camping - that's when I have time to cook. It's not just hamburgers and hot dogs at our camper!

We have a 2012 Forester 3121DS. We love RV'ing, just have not had time to get away lately. We are hoping to head somewhere soon. I love cooking outdoors, relaxing, fishing, meeting new people. We are hoping to attend the Frog Rally in August.

I can't repeat what my wife told me! But that's a whole other subject.
She loves the closet rods verse the "metal upside down hearts"
Counter space she hates ,too little ,love the cart idea though
Washer and drier a must have
Had to add a bunch of shelves in the cupboards
On demand hot water
Shower is a little small
Residential fridge
Central vac I installed
My wife keeps saying I don't listen to her -Or something like that?...."My advice has no basis ,more reliable them my own meandering experience" Baz Luhrmann

The sunseeker 3170 drives fantastic, easy to back up with the camera. I love being able to get on the road with our 4 legged children. We bought a stove cover to make it another counter since we don't cook on the stove. Next stop Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach!

My husband and I both work for UF. We live south of Micanopy. My husband is a UF grad too. Melrose is a cute little town. Nice little seafood restaurant there.

As you can see from my signature, us gals have been busy camping in our popup, usually leaving our men folk at home. Have only done a couple of mods, a shelving system and a WiFi backup camera on the back of the pup. I do the hitching up, the towing, the backing and most of the maintenance. We love getting out with our daughters and doing stuff. Home base is Maryland, but in 5 seasons we have traveled as far north as New York, as far west as Yellowstone, and south to Virginia. we enjoy historic sites, hiking, biking, canoeing, and swimming - a week at the beach is a must every year. We don't do hamburgers or hot dogs, our best meals are in cast iron Dutch ovens over coals.
The best side effect of camping, spending time with our daughters. The stuff that they have experienced and have accomplished helps give them a sense of self worth that I hope will carry them through whatever life throws at them.

I love RVing, maybe more then my hubby, I drive our GT XL378, it backs very well, I always help do the setting up and closing up. I have made quilts for our motorhome, done wall tattoos, we are working on changing out the wooden boxes in the pantry to wire basket, (I can't see in the boxes). Sometimes I think we eat better while we are out camping. One of our two fur babies loves camping just as much as I do, the other one not so much, she just goes for the company.
