Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Greetings from part-time solo RVer from Ann Arbor, Michigan

Born and raised in Detroit, my career has been focused on the Great Lakes and their islands. I bought my class B in 2009 after joining Rving Women and am circling the lakes one at a time researching, taking photos and blogging with my dog Henry. I call my rig Ecovision. I've been reading RV-Dreams for years and will be going to Sept. rally in Elkhart. Very excited! Hope to meet other solos. While I am still working 4 days a week and don't plan to full-time, I do hope for more and more months-long trips (did much of Lake Superior for 3 weeks in 2012) and need advice on best ways to stay connected and running :) Looking forward to meeting many of you there. I am experienced with Wordpress so may be able to help others set up websites and blogs.

Welcome to the forum from another native Michigander. Glad to hear you've been following the forum for years. There are many terrific solos on here and on the road as you know and you're always welcome with us duos. I'm sure you've discovered Technomadia's "Illustrated Mobile Internet Gadgetry for RVers".

Hope you get warmed up soon.
