How did your wife like driving the rig? We have a 14 hr trip coming up at the end of the month and my wife has finally volunteered to get behind the wheel. Hoping I can get some shut eye...

I have heard that the Keys are a nice place to camp. I have flown down there and stayed in hotels, but I would love to haul the camper down one day.

I'm lucky in that my wife has had no issues driving our 31FK. She enjoys it.

I'm **mostly** able to relax when she's at the wheel.
Mostly...

She liked it the only thing she drives slower than I do at 65 or so as I drive around 70-75 so when the 18 wheelers pass they pushe her and pull her so she has to keep a strong grip on the wheel I only let her drive on a straight run pulling in and out of rest areas I didn't want her to make wide turns at a gas station or anything like that she did great she told me she realize that you really have to be alert when driving something this big I laughed and told her I was the same way when I first started driving the coach but now I'm more relaxed I'm still aware of my surroundings but more relaxed as I have more experience looking in mirrors and judging turns and changing lane it would be good to allow your wife to get the experience

We love road trips. We're on one right now. Started out going to Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon National Parks (Zion was ridiculously crowded). Then went to Laughlin, NV to check out a campground there for a possible winter get-away. It was 118 degrees when we arrived, we couldn't get our camper cooler than 99 during the day, so we left after only one night (we were worried about our dog). Now we're in Santa Fe for a week, on to Lava Hot Springs, ID to meet up with our son and daughter, and then home. It's been a great trip. We will have been gone for about 3 weeks. Our motorhome is small, but it's so much easier to handle than pulling our trailer, especially when we're gassing up! We always go on a big road trip in September-October when the summer chaos has eased.
