Making some plans for next year, first stop Florida RV Super Show in Tampa!

We are making plans as to where we want to go in 2020, the first place is an easy choice.  The Florida RV Super Show in Tampa is January 15-19 with the Industry Day on the 14th.  We really enjoyed the show last year, we toured some really nice coaches and campers.  Recently several RV manufacturers have released some new Class B coaches that I want to tour.  

One coach I really want to see in person is the Coachmen Beyond 22RB, a rear bath Class B on the Ford Transit chassis.  We saw a prototype at the factory earlier this year and it really looks like it is going to be an interesting Class B.

PleasureWay has started building the Ontour 2.0 and Ontour 2.2 also on Ford Transits.  Those look interesting with 200 amp hours of lithium batteries and 2,000 watt pure sine wave inverter.

I also want to tour the new Winnebago Boldt on the 2019 Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis.  The Boldt looks like it will be a very capable four season Class B with an impressive battery system.  

We are looking forward to seeing some of the new small Class C coaches.  Leisure Travel Vans has a new Unity floorplan I want to see.  That floorplan is the Unity Rear Lounge, it looks like a nice split plan that offers a couple of areas to relax in.

The Florida RV Super Show has so much to see. Besides all the coaches and campers, there are many products that are related to the RV community.  We are going to take advantage of the dry camping they offer, that makes it easier to spend several days there.  No worries about traffic since we will already be there.  It also lets us keep our dog Spike nearby in the RV while we tour the show, it's just easy to check on him.

If there is anything you want me to check out for you, let me know.  I will make sure to video or photograph it for you.

We departed Key West yesterday.

Except for the heat and humidity we had a good time.  Everyone was saying that it was unusually hot while we there, and it was hot. 

But we still enjoyed ourselves.  We visited the Mel Fisher museum, that was very interesting. We learned about Mel and what his life was like.  We spent a day on the beach at Truman Annex, one of our favorite places.  We enjoyed some great meals.  Our first time at Charlie Mac's for BBQ and that was really good.

We had breakfast at Breakfast Club Two, our favorite place to eat breakfast when in Key West.

We visited Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island and the was great, we will back there again for sure!

The action on Duval Street was crazy with Fantasy Fest going on, really some great people watching.  

We had a great time, but onward we go, back to Homestead for a couple of days and then northward for some cooler places to visit.

Spent most of the day at the beach at Truman Annex

It's a great place to relax by the water.  Plenty of birds there to amuse me, I like watching them.  The sky was real cloudy so not a good sunset.

Later we took a bicycle ride to the Bahama Village to check out the Goombay festival.

Just a day getting settled in.

We arrived at the campground yesterday after the office closed, so today we went over to the campground office at Sigsbee and checked in.  Did a little shopping at the exchange and drive around Key West and Stock Island a little. 

Later when the sun went down we rode our bicycles around Old Town a little.

It is really hot here right now!  It's 10 on and since we are dry camping we can't run any AC.  That said, it's 86 degrees in the RV right now.

It's hot here!
