Es­cape this Win­ter

Snowbirds & RV Travelers - - Editor's Note -

Have you fi­nal­ized your win­ter plans? Where will you go and what will you do? We hope that your plans do in­clude some form of an es­cape. 2017 was a tough year with strange pol­i­tics, ex­treme weather and more than its fair share of tragic events, so it seems fit­ting that we all end the year on a much higher note. We think you can use this is­sue of

Snow­birds and RV Trav­el­ers to plan your win­ter ex­cur­sion to a warmer land, but if you can’t es­cape the cold and snow this win­ter, you can at least use the is­sue as a break from the ev­ery­day for an hour or two.

If you are dream­ing of a trip that in­cludes sun, wa­ter and sand, we have some fan­tas­tic sto­ries on trips to Florida, Cal­i­for­nia and Ne­vada — read about Palm Beach County, Cal­i­for­nia’s Best Sand Dunes, and the His­tory and Magic of the Grand Canyon Rail­way

If you want to plan your ad­ven­ture in a new RV, see page 44 for our 10 New RVs review — with fresh, in­no­va­tive de­signs at price points for nearly ev­ery bud­get, RV man­u­fac­tur­ers north and south of the bor­der are meet­ing the needs of en­thu­si­asts with a range of new mod­els for 2018. If you’ve been won­der­ing how to af­ford the snowbird life­style this year we have two ar­ti­cles that will as­sist you - see page 16 for Bring the Snowbird Life­style Home and page

72 for Ac­tive Adult Liv­ing Mind­set: On An Af­ford­able Bud­get. We’ve done some re­search for you and can help you to find a place and make it work for your bud­get. In this is­sue we have pro­vided lots of tips on keep­ing you and your RV safe this win­ter (Don’t Fear Camp­ing in the Cold; page 12, RV Win­ter Driv­ing Re­minder; page 54, and RV Fur­nace Main­te­nance; page 63). We’ve made sure you don’t get stuck in the cold!
