On this week’s show I talk about my first summer as an RVer with a new RV. The things I love about my new Riverside Retro and the things that I’m not so crazy about. There are also a few Love/Hate things in the list.

I’m very happy with the front kitchen and have no regrets on not getting the stove installed.

The awning was something I was on the fence about but am now so glad I went with it.

One of the things I dislike about the modern trailers are the Windows. They open by sliding to the left which really restricts airflow.

One of my regrets is having taken the booth out and opted for a daybed. I am missing the table for morning coffee and am going to have the table and chairs put in.

Camper College events are a great way for women to get their questions answered as well as meet likeminded women to travel with.
