Just interested in seeing how long people spend in their Phoenix Cruiser.  Add any tips that make your long stays more enjoyable.  It goes without saying, your traveling companion is at the top of that list.  Also, share any problems (and hopefully solutions) you have encountered during long stays.

We've done 3 long trips w/longest being ~1mo.  Learned to sprinkle in a few multi-day stays at points that really interest us to recharge the personal batteries & enjoy the scenery.  The 2551 is co-pilot driver friendly so we switch off ~every 100mi conditions permitting.  Buying fresh foods locally is another task we try to do on the road - we've been known to scare the folks at roadside vegetable/fruit stands when we pull the unit into the gravel/dirt.  Visiting long lost friends is another fun advantage of routing your trip.

Enjoy!

Barry:

We travel with a 9yr old and a 12 yr old.  Three weeks is all I can take....   If I want to make my long trips more enjoyable I would leave them home with the grandparental units. lol.   Seriously, I do treasure the time with them as I am aware that all too soon they will not want to be with me.  If a trip starts getting too long we stay in a top notch camp ground and relax as it were and stay an extra day. By about the 10th day we need to stay in hotel and use a real shower.  It is amazing what a full powered shower and lots of hot water can do for the soul.  Of course a walk to the hotel bar and a little music helps too.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

My brother-in-law started camping with his 2 kids (19 and 21 now) 12 years ago.  They have been to 38 states and his kids still talk about their RV trips.  It was a great experience for them as I'm sure it will be for your family.  We often took trips with them and had a great time.  We even hiked with them to the waterfalls of the Grand Canyon (28 miles in three days).  RV'ing offers a rare opportunity for family and friends to connect.

For the past three summers we have spent 2-3 monthes on the road. We like state/provincial parks/coe parks but also like to intersperse those with resort type private parks with amenities like cable tv, pools and internet access at the site.

Part of the fun is visiting relatives and friends.

Next summer we plan to head West. Unfortunately, the only relatives/friends we have in that neck of the woods is the daughter and who wants to go to Scottsdale AZ in July--

After almost 63 years of marrage, our goal has
always been to reach home one day before we
kill each other!
On the serious side, just returned from over
3weeks at PC reunion without problems. Would have
stayed longer, except for the bad weather,
