Early Christmas present!

Married for 16 years then wife wanted a divorce. I gave her every chance to back out of it. Twenty eight years since and still smiling!


Met a couple of really nice gals but will never get married again.

Someone will offer me more than I paid for the trailer. Yup, I buy lotto tickets too.

While on the interstate all oncoming cars from an exit will speed up and get into the lane ahead of me and not hesitate and seemingly freeze and make poor judgement calls as I'm in the right lane doing 65 and towing a toad.

Best spot on the beach

When you drive into a beachfront campground without a reservation you find that someone just pulled out of the perfect spot and it is open for you...

My dream is to find a KOA site that doesn't require me to spend 20 extra set-up minutes leveling my RV.

(Funny, my sites at Walmart all seem to be level......And the cost is way better too!)

After all the terrible news coming out of Paradise it’s good to hear about small wins.

It's bad luck to be superstitious.

Never have to spend hours cleaning off all the Florida “love bugs” that insist on committing suicide on the front of my coach...

Stay out of central Canada in late July to early August. Mike L. showed up at the International rally this year after being there. Front of his 5ver was plastered about a 1/2 inch thick!!!

So, I thought I would start a thread that addresses the things that will probably "never" happen to us while owning, operating, living in or just working on our RV's.

I'll go first: I'm pretty sure that we will never be crushed by a Commercial Jet Liner as it crashes onto the highway at the exact spot we are driving 65 MPH.

Pretty sure I’ll never drive off with my back landing gear down..........again.

Does that count?

Don't know if you have ever tried this, or if anyone has.

Mix Hydrogen Peroxide 50/50 with water and the bugs will almost slide right off. Works great on my VW trike. Use this solution all the time.
It almost leaves a chemical protection film as they don't seem to stick as bad.

I'll see better than 9 mpg out of my Class C gasser or better yet, get the 10 mpg that I've seen claimed in some posts.

You'll never have someone pass you then slow down just as you are trying to get some speed so you can make the next hill

All I can say is if your expectation is to just load it, have fun, unload it and walk away, most unlikely that will happen most of the time. If you are like me and enjoy making things, fixing things, and get bored sitting around then RVing is a great life. Some guys have a hobby bike or car in the garage. My hobby is my RV that my whole family enjoys at one time or another. I remind myself of that credo before every season..... makes for sanity and happiness.

I use a solution called Bugs N All to remove stuck in bugs. Just spray it on, let set and the bugs just melt off. It’s great for black streaks and other “stains” as well. You can find it on Amazon or bugsnall.com Like you I can’t stand the love bugs (South Texas)

The hammer is what they use to make holes for water lines and heating ducts . they don't know what a torque limiter is on a drill driver . just set it to max and go until screw spins freely
