Meeting new friends

Yesterday we visited with Angel and Teressa Rodriguez. They have been listening to Living the RV Dream for a year now and have commented often. They were at Sun-n-Fun RV Resort in Sarasota for a rally put on by Giant Recreation World in Winter Garden, FL. There were about 500 rigs there just for this rally! That’s a lot of happy customers. We met several of their very friendly sales staff at an area set aside for display of new rigs for sale. We looked at an interesting 40 Ft. Sport Coach diesel pusher, among other assorted rigs. We went out to lunch with Angel and Teressa at Don Pablo’s Mexican restaurant. Great food and great company! They just bought a new gas rig and in 4 years, they can retire and hit the road for a few months at a time. We look forward to meeting up with them again.
