RV Touring Stories
Touring Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis
In October we took a short trip to West Memphis for the first Rally ever held for Winnebego Viva/Trend motor homes. There are now over 180 members in our group which began in 2014. Groups are the best way to communicate with others that have the same RV model. In 2019 Winnegego announced it was cancelling the Viva/Trend line of products which in my mind were the best products they ever made. Click here to start at Day 1.

Touring PEI, Magdalen Islands & Nova Scotia 2016
I was planning a repeat trip to Newfoundland and a first time to Prince Edward Island (PEI). Studying the map for PEI I discovered an 85 mile ferry route that headed north to an archipelego of islands called the Magdalen Islands. They belong to Quebec and are very French and interesting. We return ed via Nova Scotia to Nashville. Click here to start at Day 1.
