The 1st RV Issue and Exciting Expectations

A little less than half way into our trip, our check engine light came on.  Being the middle of the night and two states away from home, we determined stopping wasn't exactly the best option.  We drove carefully and attentively for the remainder of the trip to be sure that there wasn't anything major wrong. Once we arrived, we immediately contacted Good Sam to see where we could take the RV to have the "check engine light" checked out.  With Camping World being the closest, Good Sam confirmed we would be eligible for their member discount.  


Our New Used RV - Fleetwood Bounder 34J Motorhome

As I mentioned before, we decided on the Fleetwood Bounder 34J. Not only was I thrilled it had passed the inspection but this model truly reminded me of the one I had camped in as a child.  I don't think I can begin to tell you how seriously excited we all were to bring this home.  I even prepared a scavenger hunt for my kids which ended outside with the big surprise right before Christmas!

Purchasing a Used RV and Inspection

After looking at a couple Winnebago's, a Jayco, a Tiffin, a Forest River, and a Fleetwood over the past year, we decided on a Fleetwood Bounder 34J.  We fell in love with quite a few of the features that Fleetwood had to offer and the previous owner had seemed to take pretty good care of it (being he was a mechanic).


Considering Which Type of RV and The Features

So, as we started the process, the first thing we had to decide on was the type of camper as well as the layout or features we wanted.  Depending on who you ask, there are two-three types of recreational vehicles and each type has multiple types or "classes".  Because of our yearly road trip, we knew we wanted a Motorhome not a trailer so we could utilize the space WHILE driving and to make it easier on the driver (aka my husband).

A Ladybug on the Go Starts a New Adventure

I want to share some NEW and EXCITING information as A Lucky Ladybug starts an exciting chapter of adventure.
My family used to camp a ton when I was a little girl and my sisters and I always had a blast.  The tradition of camping has been such a memorable one that now having children of my own, I want them to enjoy the same great experiences I had as well as form those exciting memories and traditions for our own family.
