I plan on retiring sometime after the summer is over.I bought a 25 foot motor home(1992 Mallard) that has a 383 gas engine.The engine may get as much as 7.5 to 8 miles per gallon.This is all new to me and if there are any experienced RV'ers out there,do you have any advise?

Whenever you go to vacation at an RV park, be prepared to be over run by other retired folks that want to sit and talk for hours and hours and hours. If you want to have a little privacy, put a sign on your door advertising how you sell one of those 'high pressure' products (Amway? Herbal-Life supplements and stuff that you have to sit and listen to a sales pitch) or some obscure insurance and "Please knock for details." They will avoid you like the plague Are you heading south anytime soon?

Are you crazy!?! Haven't you seen any of those movies? ANY time someone goes out in a motor home, said person will encounter....
have a flat tire run into a bear run out of gas nearly fall of a cliff get swept downstream by strong currents encounter an angry bee hive tick off a trigger happy yokel step on a snake meet a wacky neighbor at the rv park...
Be sure that hilarity will insue, but not for you. Your trip will take about 90 minuets but seem like a week. When all is said and done your teenage doughter will love you like a father, your younger son will respect you as an accomplished outdoorsman. Your wife will love you more and ask to continue the RV trip for another week.
Hope that made sense, I've got no desire to proofread or spelcheck. Happy trails!
Hmmm, maybe sleep IS that important.
