Episode 127: Can Two People and a Dog Really Live in a 24-foot Motorhome? On the Valentine’s Day episode of the Roadtreking RV Podcast, Mike and Jennifer answer your questions about their relationship, living for long periods in a 24-foot camper van and how two people so different can get along so well. I’ve been saving all sorts of questions our audience has been sending Jennifer and me over the years - questions perhaps more personal than practical - and decided this Valentine’s Day week that we’ll use those questions to interview ourselves and answer some of the more revealing questions about us. Plus we have tech and pet tips, RV travel advice and the most romantic RV memories from our Off-the-Beaten-Path reporters Tom and Patti Burkett. JENNIFER'S TIP OF THE WEEK We love listening to audiobooks as we drive. With CD players now a thing of the past for most new vehicles, downloading them and playing them back through a device is the most common way to get them. But they cost a small fortune from the app stores. That’s where Hoopla (www.hoopladigital.com) comes in. Hoopla is a free app for Android, iOS (Apple) or Kindle that lets you download audiobooks directly to your smartphone or tablet from your home public library. For free. Naturally, you have to belong to a public library and have a valid membership. Besides audiobooks, Hoopla lets you check out movies and TV shows and, of course, ebooks. They download to your device for offline playback, meaning you’re not streaming and thus eating up your data plan, or dependent on wi-fi. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily and EFIT EDIT EDITtitles are automatically returned and removed from your device at the end of the lending period, typically after a month. We love this app. It saves us money and makes those miles go by faster. EDIT EDIT Do you have an RV tip you’d like to share? You can use the “Leave Voicemail” link at Roadtreking.com. Just click it and then use the built-in microphone on your computer or mobile devise to record a message to me. You can do it over as many times as you want, until you are satisfied. And then you just click a button and it comes right to my email inbox. I love hearing from you! Jennifer's tip of the week is brought to you by RadPower Bikes (ww

Great show, especially if considering buying RV!
We've recently discovered this podcast and have learned so much from the show. Hosts seem gracious and maybe even people I would be friends with if they were my neighbors. I love the RV maintenance tips and info on wifi options on the road, solar tech, and other interesting bits. My husband and I are in learning phase and getting ready to purchase a Class B. We are 28 & 35 yro, maybe early on RVing lifestyle, but love the idea of roaming free and seeing the country. We look forward to being on the road soon and really appreciate your show Mike & Jennifer.

Interesting Concept for RVing Info
I've listened to parts of some of the episodes. Its a new way to learn about RVing. Its an interesting concept. Runs like a radio show about RVing. Can be a little long and wordy but there's some good stuff here
