RV Shopping? To show us the latest, I hope. Or are you planning to flip CC after all that amazing
renovation work? Love your channel and your book!
Oh no we love our CC! But we always love RV shopping and we are toying with the idea of getting a second, smaller RV for getaways and RV shows, events and such. Thanks for your kind words about our channel and glad you love the book!
The hours you posted are 10am to 6pm. I see on the Tampa RV Show website that it is 9am to 6pm. I want to get there right when they open. They open at 9am right?
I am so sorry for the delay, just seeing this now, that was a typo on our post, please accept our apologies!
