First Time Setup (Bikes and Car)


Thought I'd share this photo. A lot of thought went into how to set this up and wanted to share with anyone who is also new to RV'ing and wants to bike and tow as we're also new to RV Camping. We took our third trip since we bought our FR3 30DS in October last year. We just went to Pine Mountain RV Resort in Pine Mountain, GA, part of the RVC Park family, and it was very nice. It's located next to Callaway Gardens, an amazing Animal Safari, and the Little White House in Warm Springs, GA (20 minute Drive from Callaway). From Atlanta, this trip is less than a couple hours drive. We wanted to do a short-jaunt to try out this new setup since it was our first time towing.

Good thing too because the tie down strap on the tow dolly wasn't quit the right size and was edging off on one tire by the time we arrived. Kept trying to ratchet it down, but the strap needed to be adjusted to fit our size tires. Got it worked out before we headed home, just needed to re-read the setup and then adjust the straps that hold down the front tires.

Anyway, nice to have the bikes and the car and have a bike rack for the car too, so we can make an excursion with the bikes and the Mazda 3.

Met a lot of great folks too!
