Walkabout 2015 Preparation

Proposed Route

With three days and some amount of hours left until we push-back I thought I’d better offer a preview of the preparation and trip, if nothing else than to review them myself.

Above left is the most current itinerary, a counter-clockwise trip around the US and Canada. Parameters for the dates are mid-June graduation of Grandson Mitchell and the mid May opening of the Canadian Rockies.

Each walkabout we’ve taken (this will be number three) we’ve made fewer reservations and been more open to “one day at a time.” We also try to drive less each day, with 300 miles as a guideline maximum. More state, provincial and national parks.

Outfitting the new Navion has been fun, and we’ll do more rearranging on the road. The four cylinder, twin turbo diesel and 7 speed transmission make the rig a dream to drive, with 18.5 mpg so far. The floor plan (we chose the L-shaped sectional) is much more livable than our 2006 View.

    1. I have a 2017 Navion and have experienced many of the same malfunctions and misalignments as you. I am especially disappointed in how difficult it is to get beneath the cargo doors to do anything. This is especially true when accessing the tanks and plugging in the power cable to the inverter so as to allow use of the generator when mobile. Are you aware of any aftermarket doors or fasteners that would allow the cargo doors to rise above the 90 degrees as designed?
