    Just booked a long weekend at Holiday Trav-L Park in Virginia Beach VA for the beginning of August... The family and I are beyond excited to get out little pop-up out-n-about... This will be the first actually road trip for it since I've owned it (other than a couple few-mile trips around my immediate area) Looking forward to hitting the open road and getting to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel... Haven't been across that in 5 or so years...

    Our first long trip was to Virginia Beach in 2015, and we had a great time! We stayed at First Landing.
    I know you will enjoy your trip.

    Just remember that the bay bridge wanta you to turn off your propane if crossing. They should have a spot to pull over before you get on it. Also, they limit towing at certain wind speeds. So check the weather and the hurricane thats moving up the coast to see if it effects you time frame. After that have fun! I avoided it when going to disney, but i remember the same as you from when i was a kid. I so wanted to go on it again. Another day for me.

    Glad to hear you checked the tires. Remember most PUP tires are not designed to go 70-75mph. 65 is usually the limit. Better to get there safe, than fast.
