Look at this Sub Forum, read the 873 RV threads. http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewforum.php?f=286
Then rephrase your question with specific topics that you haven't found the answer for.
Why don't ya stick your head in that hole and find out? ~piehole

Welcome!

Go ahead and read through this if you haven't already:

Old pros respond better to specific questions, especially if you show that you've attempted to find the answers yourself. :coffee:

Hi Craig,

I moved this thread to the "Introduce Yourself" forum instead of the "2013 Share Resources" forum, since it was more of a personal introduction rather than a request to share the RV. (Share Resources would be a fine place to post later if you want to add someone to the RV.)

Here are two good threads. I found them by entering keywords + eplaya into Google. (You can find almost any topic you want by googling with the words ePlaya.)

RV Camper's Survival Guide
http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?t=54180

Exp. RVers: Suggestions for House rules for renting an RV
http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?p=622764

Make sure you (& Josh) read the Survival Guide linked in my signature below. The desert isn't terribly cushy. :mrgreen: :coffee:
