What a great week we have had. First the Florida RV Show and now we are at the Fleetwood Motorhome Association rally here at Lazydays. The show was great lots to do and see, I think the only new thing in the RV division was a coat closet and an escape ladder. A newly released American Eagle had an escape ladder that was a shelf in the back bathroom, there was a lock to release and the whole shelf lowered to the ground to be like a stepladder. Very nice, much better than climbing out of the window. The coat closet was right across from the door in a side door model, it was small and it could be used for brooms and mops but there was nice space for coats.
Products we found were a Miracle grill mat, it covers the grill and you can cook right on it. It’s really great for fish and vegetables. Found a new apparel company selling RV4life, it’s on tees and everything else, personally I like our stuff better but you all know that.
Lots of campgrounds were there, KOA had a big display and they have are transitioning many of their locations into KOA journeys, KOA Holiday, and KOA Resorts. The journey parks are for overnight or a few days, the holiday has more patio RV sites, cabins and amenities, the resorts are a vacation destination.
The best part of the show was meeting so many of our listeners. We had a meet and greet on both Fri. and Sat. and wow what a humbling experience to meet all of you. Thank you for taking the time to come to talk with us. Nick and Terry Russell were with us and they too thought this was a great time. I hope we can do more of these. I would love to name everyone we met, but I’m not sure if I got every ones name. So, you know who you are and thank you.
It amazes me the totally different types of people who RV from executives to custodians. Just put us in a RV and we are so happy to be with others going down the road and sharing our adventures. There is no class status once you get into the RV, there are not racial issues either, there is just fellow RVers loving the lifestyle and talking about the places we have been and the people we have met. I know I have met some fantastic people. John says I’m a great interviewer but it is really just being overly curious, about how and why people choose to RV. The answers are always different and once you make the commitment and let go of all the stuff it is freedom itself.
Well, that’s all for today
God Bless and Happy Camping
