Buying an RV is not an easy task, particularly if one is new to the whole concept of RV life.  When we decided to move back East, we knew that the RV that we chose would need to be comfortable for us and our four feline children.  Julie, being retired, put lots of hours into research, talking to people, U-Tube videos, etc. before we made any decisions.  We went to several RV dealers and looked at many RVs.  It is a long and arduous process but we did our homework.

When Julie came upon “The Hawk” she called me at work and said “Honey, I found our RV.”  I couldn’t believe it!  When I went to see it, I agreed with her that it was the perfect RV for us.   The Hawk is a 32’ Class “C” made by Jayco, one of the best RV manufacturers out there.  What makes it perfect is that the bedroom and bathroom are fully separate rooms with doors that close and lock.  We can separate the cats (with their food and litter box) from the main living area if need be.  If we want to have people over for dinner or game playing, we don’t have to worry about the cats getting out of the RV; they can be safe and sound in the back of the rig behind closed doors.

The Hawk is very well made and has all the features that we need: a good size shower, a generator, lots of storage in the main unit as well as the “basement,” two flat screen TVs, 2 slide outs, automatic levelers, a really good air conditioning unit, a 3 burner stove, microwave, good size refrigerator, propane gas grill, lighted awning and plenty of sleeping places for guests.  We invested in a Direct TV satellite dish which was installed on the roof.  We continue to get all of our taped shows on the DVR which I still have a hard time figuring out how that works by some geeky thing called an “inverter.”  I will also get all of the Bills games because of Direct TV’s contract with the NFL and the Sunday Ticket.  Thank God!  This is the Bills’ year (I know I have said that for the last 20 years but I mean it this time!)

I am still in awe of The Hawk and still quite intimidated by it.  I am hoping that as we drive more and continue our journey, I will become more comfortable.  She sure is a magnificent machine!!!!
