On this week’s show I interview Suzanne Saunders who is a life long camper. She was first a girl scout and then a family camper in the 1970’s with a Starcraft pop up trailer. When she and her husband Gordon retired they crossed the country several times in their fifth wheel trailer. After losing Gordon nine years ago Suzanne continued her travels as a solo woman traveler in a scaled back Class C motorhome. She visited family and friends along the way and even went to Alaska alone. She did not belong to any women’s travel groups preferring the freedom of an untethered schedule. She is on the show today to share her experiences, wisdom and advice for women facing the question of whether to continue in the RV lifestyle after the loss of a travel partner. Suzanne is a dynamic traveler who has been to 62 countries with more trips on the planning board. In addition to being a terrific role model for Girl Campers of any age, she is my Aunt Sue!
On this week’s show I interview Chris Holland from Girard Systems about their third generation tankless hot water system. I had this system installed in my new Riverside Retro and it is by far my favorite upgrade. While most RV hot water tanks hold six gallons and continually use propane keeping it hot, the Girard system provides endless hot water on demand. Chris discusses the features and benefits of this cost effective upgrade.
On this week’s show I am turning the tables on RV Family Travel Atlas Podcast hosts Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi and interviewing them on their recently published book, The Idiot’s Guides, RV Vacations. The co-hosts of the highly rated podcast tell how the book came about, how they managed the writing schedule on such short notice and what we can look forward to in the future from them.
I also chat about the St George, my new Riverside Retro by Whitewater and the work he required after accidentally rocking him off his stabilizing jacks.
I’m also sharing a sister on the fly’s stolen trailer to be on the look out for. It was stolen this week from Missouri, City, Texas.
On this week’s episode Jeremy Puglisi from RV Family Travel Atlas Podcast talks about his top picks for the RVing Dad or Mister Sister. If you are unsure of what to get the special man in your life for the RV these products have been used and reviewed by Jeremy and Stephanie and the recommendations are personal.
I also welcome my new sponsor, Little Guy Worldwide whose full line of lightweight camping trailers are Girl Camper favorites and I am delighted to partner with them in bringing more Camper College events to RV dealerships across the country.
