RV NEWBIE | WHAT’S AN FMCA CONVENTION RALLY REALLY LIKE? | RV SEMINARS | RV TOURS | RV LIFE | EP 82



ANYONE THINKING ABOUT RVING NEEDS TO ATTEND AN FMCA CONVENTION BEFORE PROCEEDING ANY FURTHER! Would of started out RVing a lot better if we had attended all the seminars, exhibit halls and new RVs BEFORE we bought anything! Sue & I have been on the road full time for 2.25 years and we learned a lot at this convention. It was full of information, tours, parties, dancing, eating, donuts, coffee and stage shows that we can’t wait to attend our next one!

    In January 2020, Sue & I were honored to be interviewed by hosts Nicole & Jason of the Podcast "The Nomadic Traveler", a travel Podcast about getting out of your house, off of technology and out experiencing life. In this Part 1 of 2 Podcast episode, we discussed our most popular video "RV LIVING COSTS – ONE YEAR FULL TIME TRAVEL IN A CLASS A MOTORHOME – EP76" published August 2019.
    Use the following link to listen to Part 1 of 2 of this audio podcast: https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-nk4a2-ce0f15
    We will be publishing our 6 month update to this August 2019 video, and expect it to be out in January 2020.

    I think you guys have the right idea about buying the right coach. I don't care what a person buys, it's different strokes for different folks. I always hated high pressure salesman. I believe if the coach or car or what ever reaches out and bites you on the butt and you love it, then it's the right move

    We are searching to buy ‘’our last RV’’ first. We are wondering if we must be a member of FMCA before we can attend these seminars? Or can anyone attend these seminars?

    From a new subscriber who is happy to have found your channel. We are headed to the FMCA Rally in Tucson in March. (Our first.) Hope it is as good as this one was and has the same
    weigh-in opportunity. Cheers!

    Thank you for posting this. I've been an FMCA member since 2012 and was planning on going to the N. Dakota one but my spinal condition wouldn't let me then. I have yet to get to one and hope that I will soon! In the meantime, it was nice to see it on your channel 🙂

    I just found your channel and I love watching your content.

    I've been curious what it's like to attend an FMCA event. I know there is more than what was seen, but these are great videos with a lot of information. Job well done.

    Another awesome video Mark & Sue! Loved your fancy new business card holder on your rig. Thank you for checking out all the new 2020 Tiffins and Newmars for us at the FMCA rally. We placed our custom order with Tiffin and hope to pick up our new home/rig before Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for the unexpected shout-out too! That was a great impersonation of me in the shower. 🤣 Look forward to seeing y'all in Florida in a few months. Safe travels! 👍😎🚍🌴

    Thanks for such a great video. We plan to go to our first FMCA Rally in Tucson next April. BTW. I need to hang with you. My husband is the same. I am always waiting on him. You have such patience I wish I had some of that. ❤️❤️

    I am surprised you didn't get over to the Foretravel display. I think you would look good in a Realm or ih-45. You could custom order a Prevost conversion to your exacting standards from them to.

    I audibly laughed out loud at the air filter part, "but the rich guy doesn't change his filter" 😆

    Another fine OJIM production 😉 When you toured the FL chassis and said "that is a manly tire" I had to laugh- I have a manly tire and it is called my waist LOL. Getting real on this end-estate sale is Friday and we are going to sell it to the walls. The production order is in on the DS 4369-mid Dec delivery-whew what a week. Cheers and type at ya later. BNG

    Very entertaining! Bet you needed a vacation after that week. Interesting to see the weight on the front wheels. Wow, it carries almost half of the weight of the coach eve more when braking. No wonder they recommend doing 60 or 65mph. Kind of hard to accelerate when you have a blow out on the front if you already have the pedal mashed. Those run-flat inner cores would definitely be worth their weigh in yellow plastic.

    You know that you can buy little countertop ovens for about $200 that are way better than those crappy m/conv ovens. Problem is where do you put the thing when you are not using it. That is why I would order a propane range.

    Another great video thanks for putting this together. Haven't joined FMCA yet but will probably sign up next year with our retirement. Good job researching coaches before purchase, you save a lot of $$$ if you can pick your last coach first. We haven't seen any coaches yet that made us doubt our purchase, at least without having to sell a few kidneys (LOL)

    Stay with Newmar if you are looking… Not sure I would buy new tho.. I'm looking at a 2014 Newmar Mountain Air for around $220K and 20K miles on it… I own a 2009 Dutch Star now but upgrading this winter.

    Great video once again. How do you plan out your trips and find interesting sites along the way. We are in the process of purchasing a 2006 Newmar Mountain Aire. We are very excited. Keeping our house but want to venture out for a while.

    Cool I have a small Class A. When me and the wife are able to travel more we will purchase a larger unit she's against a larger unit I am too. When we travel now it is so easy to drive and we virtually can go anywhere we want. A larger unit would be very nice if we're going to be staying in it months at a time. I don't want to sell my home as I really enjoyed it. Somehow I wish we could travel more Torn Between two . Right now I'd be too embarrassed to be there with all those really nice motorhomes. So much I would like to ask you saying how I just found your Channel y'all pretty cool. You're doing it the way I want to. That cut away you shows the mechanics nightmare. wonder why it causes so much to get it fixed. This comment is way too long sorry
