Owning an RV is a big investment, so everyone wants to know as much as they can about the lifestyle before making the big purchase. On this episode of the podcast, we asked RV owners to tell us what surprised them after they purchased their first RV. Also, more and more businesses are facing the scrutiny of consumers who want to know their hard earned money is going to a company who will use it responsibly. Not surprisingly, the outdoor industry is leading the charge. We talk to the leadership team of portable solar light manufacturer MPOWERD, who know why giving back is good business. The recently shuttered Roadtrek has a buyer - will they honor those famous 6-year warranties? And the 150mph worlds-fastest Tesla electric motorhome - is this something we really need? All that and more on this week's episode of RV Miles!

RV Miles takes you down on the Red River this week to the Shreveport-Bossier area in Louisiana, where we had cajun and creole food, and got to visit some great museums. We also talk with pitchup.com about their new resource for booking campgrounds and let you know what day of the week is the best to buy gasoline. All that, plus news and a new brain teaser!
This week on RV Miles, the podcasts, audiobooks, and music we listen to while we're driving down the road to pass the time. Plus we have two listener questions, one about what we do with seasonal clothes as full-time RVers, and one asking for tips to help solve the difficulties with summer campground booking. Plus, news, a new brain teaser, and more!
On this slightly belated episode of RV Miles (a few glitches in our weekend!) we cover our time in Dallas, Texas — including the great things we got to do on the Dallas CityPASS, like the zoo and the Perot Museum. It's a great town with lots to do!
