    After 40 years of OTR trucking I have grown used to the 38"x83" standard sized mattress. I don't sleep with anyone so if it does happen yes 38" is more than enough room for 2 when horizontally active and cuddling! That's MY plan for my next rv as I need the room more than the sleeping space.
    Ahhh eric?? 45* is half of what you rotated your mattress! Yeah I know you went to Evergreen a liberal arts college and not one with the mathematics and geometry needed for some things in life!

    Hey Eric, love your channel mate, so much so I just got delivery of my very first RV, a 2004 Fleetwood 32vs Southwind, holy cow is there allot to learn. I watch all of you shows and was wondering if you could direct me to the one with the surveillance instal (the revised one 🙂 and the recent one on your new mattress. I have looked all over your channel but can’t seem to locate them. All the best, keep up the great work and scratches to Jax man, cheers

    Breaking Benjamin would've been a great concert especially since you have multiple songs of them on your favorite song list by year. Been awhile since i heard about sleeping with sirens. Only know a few songs from about 10 years ago.

    Eric…yes you have made mistakes with numbers, but lets all remember, I am sure you are thinking far ahead of what you are going to say next as you video and get mixed up from time to time…I live in Napanee Ontario Canada, home Town of Avril Lavigne who was married to Deryck Whibley of SUM 41and good friends with Derycks uncle who also lives in my home town…..I enjoy following you as you take us places that I will never get to !!

    #466 Good morning, Eric. I took my teenage son to a concert at Pine Knob here in Michigan, many years ago. Playing was Santana. I had a house seat, thousands chose the grassy hill. About the bed, 90 degrees is a quarter turn! Sail ON!

    I have recently found a couple of other RV travelers on YouTube. They show really interesting places, like you used to. One of them has some great drone footage, like you used to. Neither of them talk constantly into the camera, like you do. Some narration, maybe some music along with the footage. I know your drone is broke. I know you like water: creeks, streams, rivers, oceans or a city drainage ditch. I have been a subscriber for years, almost since the beginning. You, you have become boring. Time for a change.

    Super ideas for the bedroom! That magnet board was a perfect solution! Eric, you keep making the videos about your adventure and nevermind that some people did not like the music at the festival! If people cannot figure out how to move ahead in the video, that is kind of sad to know! Take care, keep on living your life to the fullest! GIve Jax a hug from his fans here! God Bless!
