June 3, 2011

For those of you interested in our long range plan to hit the road fulltime, I’ve posted an update on our RV/Travel blog: Back Roads & Brushes.

    Ralph,
    I had a smaller 21ft. class C motor home (1976- 1995). It was short enough to go or park conveniently about anywhere while traveling, camping, sightseeing and vacationing with the family. It work well for art fairs too. When traveling to paint or gather reference I found it better to tow a VW Beatle , so I could get off the beaten path. Will you be towing another vehicle and carrying what is in your trailer in/on the RV ?

    I never RV’d full time but did use it often and loved the whole experience.

    Good luck with your new adventure and I plan to follow your blog more closely. I hadn’t been to your blog in quite sometime, now. When I occasionally go to Wetcanvas and if you have a post I check it out. You have really been producing some very good gouache paintings.

    Again, GOOD LUCK!

      William, it’s good to hear from you again. We’ve got a Chevy Trailblazer that we will tow backwards, rear wheels up on a tow dolly (it’s rear wheel drive). Everything that is now in the cargo trailer (art & frames in plastic tubs, ProPanels, show tent, directors chairs, dolly, etc.) will go into the outside basement storage compartments. That storage is why we finally opted for a Class A. We’ll sell the cargo trailer when we finally hit the road fulltime. For shows, we’ll use the Trailblazer like we used to do before acquiring the cargo trailer. The choice of a “toad” (towed vehicle) is very much based on whether all the show stuff will fit in it with the back seats down. For now, we know the Trailblazer works, and it will be a comfortable sightseeing vehicle. And it’s just about paid for, which is a major plus.

    Ralph,
    It sounds like you and Nell have researched and a developed a good plan. Have you decided what direction and destination you are heading for first ?

    Once again, Good Luck to you both.
