Arriving back in the US

The flights are booked and the RV is ready, so we’re ready to rock once again! I will be arriving on the 22nd Sept and will spend a couple of days flushing the cold water system with sanitizing solution, stocking up with beer (and some food) and generally have a spring clean (even though it’s not spring) and then I’ll make the journey to Albuquerque for the balloon festival.

Julia will meet me there a week later so that we can head up to Vegas together for the “Entegra October fest “. Somewhere along the way we need to arrange for our Mini to be returned to one of the ports for shipping back to France, as this is only allowed to be in the USA for 12 months which is up in October.

When I came across last month for the RV test drive I purchased a new tow vehicle (see photo below) I hope Julia will like it ?


I just need to fit the Blue Ox base plate and the “SMI Air Force One” second car kit and we’re good to go (hence why I am coming over a week before Julia).

We will of course be making plenty of videos of our trip so keep watching…..

    Hi Glenn (and Julia, of course),
    It’s 3:45 in the morning here and I just noticed your latest update! Glad to see that you’ve made your arrangements to return and the new car looks great. I’m looking forward to some new videos since the void while the steering was being fixed. Maybe I can get back to sleep now. Russ

    Glenn, I just installed the m&g engineering braking system on my escalade, you might want to do some research on that, they’re based out of Athens Tx. It’s a pretty clean deal. Bryan.

      Hi Bryan
      Thank for the e-mail. I will have to stay with the SMI “air force one” as half is already fitted to the RV’s air system and changing the whole thing will be a real pain. They also produce a re-fit kit so I’ll be de installing it from the Mini and re-installing it on to the Arcadia. Thanks for the advise anyway. I’ll take a look at it just as a reference point.
      Cheers for now

      Hi Jerald
      Sorry for the late reply, Would we buy another Entegra. Well based on our experience absolutely not as we have spent more time having repairs carried out (I’m currently in a hotel because the Anthem in in the garage for another 2 days) That said, if Entegra want to provide me with a coach that works (which may be a challenge they are unable to meet) then could do lots of reviews about whats great and whats not.
