JV's Travel & RV Pages
I've always been interested in travel, having made over 10 cross country trips & many, many local travels around the Eastern US. (See our trip links on my home page.) On this & the linked pages I have collected links to many RV Journals, RV Blogs & RV Travelogues. There are also links to other topics that may be of interest to travelers.
I owe a great debt to those authors who have pointed out many of the wonderful places we have found through their web pages. I have quoted the web page's "About Us" in most cases, and added additional information that might be helpful in providing a description of the link.
I now have a blog at Goggle that covers my adventures with an Escape 17B Travel Trailer. It starts with my thoughts on the purchase of the trailer, continues with a 2011 111 day, 18,700 mle trip to the southwest & western Canada, and will continue to cover my current & future travels: Jon's Journeys. A day by day version of the 2011 trip with many more photographs is available here.
My 2012 138 day trip is available here.

RVing Blogs, Travelogues & Journals - When we travel, we usually mix camping with motels, but ever since renting one, we found traveling in a class A RV about the most comfortable way to see the US. To help make the decision to purchase one, we have been following a number of RVing Blogs & Journals. If you have a related web page, feel free to email me your URL so I can add it!
Like all my projects, this collection has a life of its own! In addition to the journals & blogs, there are links to many other pages of interest to RVers & travelers.
Below are some links to those that I have found. I will continue to add to & update these as time permits:
Blogs, Journals & Travelogues:

Non RV Travel Journals & Blogs - (Updated 10/2412) Although the overall direction of these pages are towards the RV user, there are many journals, travelogues, and blogs that may be of interest, even though the authors are traveling by car, motorcycle, or even on foot.
Hard to Define Collections - (Updated 3/15/06)
Other RV Links -
Technical & Advice Pages - (Updated 5/12/13) I have collected a bunch of links that may prove helpful to anyone maintaining a RV. As a retired electrician, I have heavily weighted the links to electrical information, but there are many links to other topics.

RV Rentals - (Updated 2/27/11) Links to organizations that rent RVs. I have only used The Great Outdoors so I can't rate them, but if you want to rent before you buy, this lists some places to check.
RV Dealers - (Updated 2/1/11) A collection of dealers that have requested I add them to the site. Again, I have not dealt with many of them so I only provide a connection, not recommendations.
RV Suppliers - (Updated 3/16/13) This is a collection of suppliers of parts, accessories and other items that may be useful to RV owners.
RV Manufacturers (Updared 2/21/12) This is a list of manufacturers that have requested a link to their sites or have been recommended by RVers. With a few exceptions, I have not dealt with any of them & cannot make recommendations - It is just a collection of links. The descriptions are usually quotes from their sites.
RV Parks & Resorts (Updated 12/30/12) This page lists parks that have requested they be added, or have been recommended by RVers.
Pre Owned RV Sources & RV Reviews - (Updated 11/17/11) Links to suppliers of used RVs as well as links that may be helpful in choosing and evaluating a used RV.

Destinations - (Updated 6/24/06) Places that I feel are worth a stop when traveling.
