We bought our first motorhome, a 40′ Fleetwood Discovery, in 2007. It was our first venture into the RV lifestyle which we have enthusiastically embraced. We knew soon after beginning our RV adventure that we were hooked, and there would be new adventures ahead. After attending a 2010 Family Motorcoach Association (FMCA) rally in Vermont, we found the motorhome that we hoped we would someday own. In 2012 it became a reality.We purchased a 2012 42QBH Tiffin Phaeton, that we kept until 2016. We named our Tiffin, “Tiger Bus.” We purchased our current motorhome, a 2017 Leisure Travel Van Unity 24MB in August, 2016, and took delivery in April, 2017. Since she was manufactured by Leisure Travel Vans (LTV), and we love the Clemson Tigers, we have named her, “Little Tiger Van!”
How one views Motorhomes (aka Motorcoaches), or motorhome ownership, is a matter of perspective. Some people view us, and our traveling lifestyle, as that of rednecks who visit Walmart Superstores and Cracker Barrels around the country (Guilty!). Others marvel at our motorhome’s amenities and tell us that we are living their dream. One of our favorite points of view was from one of our former neighbors little boy (Aaron) who called our motorhome “Mr. Jack’s School Bus!” How can you not love that? We nicknamed our coach the “Little Tiger Van” after our love for Clemson University Football. To us, our motorhome is our mountain retreat, lake house, beach house, and all those other great getaway retreats we have always dreamed of having rolled into one. We have truly been blessed.
