RV There Yet? Chronicles of a Retirement Adventure

Heartland Recreational Vehicles is the fastest growing RV company in the world and we are making news in the RV industry every day.
My husband, Michael, and I have been living fulltime in our 2011 Landmark Key Largo since April of 2011 and LOVE every minute of it.

When Michael retired from the US Army in October of 2012 (after 29 years of service) we hit the road and haven’t looked back.

We usually work in the south Texas oilfields in the winter and spend time with our two sons and their families in the summer. We travel and sight-see as much and often as possible.

RV Tip: Tires and TPMS

RV Tip: Tires and TPMS
If you were running a marathon, you probably wouldn't wear poorly-fitting, second-hand sneakers to do so. Similarly, if you're hauling a huge RV all over the country, you want it to have pretty good shoes too. A tire pressure monitoring system can't hurt either (however, we know from experience if your TPMS isn't turned on…it wo...
