Hi all,
Can't wait for our big adventure to start. This is exactly the reason we bought this great van...trips like this will never be the same.

Good luck!

It sounds like fun to me. I've been chomping at the bit to get out and use my camper. :?

We're back, and the B190 performed magnificently!!! We just wish our dog would lay on the bed rather than stand between our seats. He's exhausted after standing for 1200 miles!!! Last year we made this same trip in our sub-compact car, and stayed in KOA cabins. This van made for such a great and easy trip.

By the way, there must have be an Airstream rally going on down south...we passed so many Airstream trailers, and I swear I saw a B190 go by. Did anyone here head south on I-95 on Saturday, 2/16? I think it was somewhere in South Carolina in the afternoon.

I had to laugh when I read that your dog wants to stand between the seats on a long trip. It seems that the vibration is distrubing to thier sensitive ears.
We adopted a collie rescue 2 years ago who is beyond terrible in any vehicle. He wanted to sit on the lap of someone!
We purchased a travel harness that clips into any seat belt.
Now our collie friend settles down on the couch looking out the side window. We also added an herbal product to calm him an hour before the trip.
It is so much less stress on everyone!! We took him along on a 7 hour trip in March with no problems.
