Great to see all those press passes and tags behind Brooke. Don’t we all have collections of those.
Oops - sorry - Dana’s pass collex.

I need some VT tips, Dana. :)
National Forests are a great option. Often quieter, as beautiful and easier to get a spot in than some national parks.
Securing a site is usually an issue, people in the know book many months in advance. How is this handled?
One of my favorite benefits I learned 28 years ago on my first (of many) RV trips: You can camp in the wilderness and also have ice cream.
Approximately what percentage of RV renters hitch a car to it?
I'd love tips on how to get a good mobile/internet signal. In many state and national park areas, cell signals are scarce
Kodachrome Basin is a great state park near Bryce
I can answer that Carol - during the Q&A
How long does it usually take newbies to do all the hook-ups?
outdoorsy.com for private rentals. It's like an RV AirBnB. As for finding sites - What about Harvest Hosts, where agricultural sites like farms and wineries offer RV sites. Have any of the panel experienced this? What are the pit-falls?
We’ll do Q&A at the end and will try to hit all your questions then, thanks!
On a more practical note, the most important tip I ever received was to have a dedicated pair of “dump” gloves. Yes, sometimes dumping the black water isn’t quite as neat as you might like.
We rent our RV with RVshare and Outdoorsy - RVshare is 99.9% of our rentals.With Harvest Hosts you are usually boondocking (no electric/ water), so you need to plan ahead to be sure you have what you need.
Also very true. Disposable gloves come in handy for that too - but are wasteful of course.
We keep disposable gloves in our bathroom- supplied for renters.
We have Google Fi and Google Fi phones which have been amazing during travel to getting signals - whether wifi or cell and act as mobile hotspots...

First Time RV Tips, including WiFi issue https://danahfreeman.com/first-rv-trip/
I learned the hard way: remember to put the antenna down in the morning before leaving the campground, and definitely before driving under a low tree branch.
With class c (over cab style) - are people able to be in the RV while it is being driven?

Does one’s regular automobile liability coverage normally stay in effect while driving a rental RV?
Elio - in a motorhome (drivable RV) people ride in them. In a towable RV people can not ride in them while moving.
Tom & Lois - no, your regular auto insurance does not cover RV rental. Your rental company can help you get insurance.
We nicknamed our VW camper The Snail in honor of all self-contained slow-moving creatures. Traveled through Europe and North Africa.
Thanks all. This is very helpful. I look forward to working with some of you in the future to help promote RV Travel when all is better in Florida.

Excellent seminar. Thanks everyone. We’ve crossed the USA and the western parks in RV rentals for years, including a 3-month stint when my daughter and I biked across the USA 10 years ago, and I still learned a lot today! Thanks again. Will be in touch.
This was great! Thanks!
Jody@halsted.biz Happy to answer RV basics and camping questions!
Campgrounds vary a lot. Do you recommend Good Sam campgrounds?
Terrific, Chez & all. Thanks
