Motorhome owners and FMCA members Jim and Nina FrancisFMCA membership number: F401147 (we joined in 2008)

Our current motorhome:
A 1994 Fleetwood Bounder 34J

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Lots of fun

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
We wanted our cat, JJ, to go with us. It’s the truth.

The best thing about our motorhome:
We can go and stop as we like. Having JJ with us.

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
None

Our occupations:
Nina retired from Dow Brands after 31 years. I (Jim) retired from the U.S. Navy after 20 years. We owned our own truck and hauled cargo in all lower 48 states and Canada.

Children, grandchildren:
We have six children, 10 grandchildren and 11 great grand kids.

We travel in our motorhome:
Approximately six to seven months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re at home doing projects around the house.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
We have seen and been to many places. A favorite would be hard to say.

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip or motorhoming memory:
Mount Rushmore always comes up first.

Our “dream” motorhome trip:
Start at home, go south to Florida, get on Interstate 10 and head to California.

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Being stuck after an all-night rain. Coach-Net pulled us out. It rained so hard we felt the coach sinking. The folks at the campground said we had 6 inches of rain overnight.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Gas prices

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
We knew nothing about motorhoming, and we are still learning.

When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Be alert.

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Let your conscience be your guide.

Our hobbies are:
We like to sightsee, and walk if we can sit some.

Favorite campground:
One of the nicest was Brookville, Ohio, KOA.

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Indianapolis Motor Speedway Indianapolis 500 Hall of Fame Museum

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Water, coke and orange juice. I am diabetic, so OJ is a must.

Behind our motorhome, we tow: A 2009 Saturn Vue

Pets that travel with us: JJ Dachshund, 15 pounds of strong will

We joined FMCA because: Medex Plus and Coach-Net benefits
