Florida to Pennsylvania Shakedown 2018

We picked up the ‘new to us’ Fleetwood Pacearrow 34U Class A motorhome in Bradenton, Florida. Our experience with RV’ing came from the past two years when we borrowed the coach for a week at a time to camp Florida state and county parks. We were intent on not towing a vehicle and using our ebikes for local transportation regardless of the weather. That decision proved to be quite ‘exhilarating’ at times; check out the posts on Asheville in the rain.
