Just completed the 1st leg of our summer road trip

Hello, this is my first post.
We purchased our 1st RV last summer, a 2016 Hurricane 31S. It checked most of the boxes of what we were looking for and was a clean unit with just 12,000 miles on it when we bought it.
It was always our dream to travel the US when we retired, however my wife was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic melanoma in March, 2020. That diagnosis accelerated our plans which led to the Hurricane purchase. Her initial treatment was pretty severe and left her very ill for several months. While caring for her, I started mapping out a trip for this summer with the hope she would be feeling better at that time. She is feeling better now but still has a quite a fight on her hands, not to use this as a platform to preach to everyone but I will say that its very important to get your skin checked regularly!
On with the post, we left on May 21st on the first of 3 travel legs we have planned for this summer's adventures. This included Yosemite, CA wine country, the Redwoods, up through Crater Lake and to Portland where we put the Hurricane in storage. Overall, we were very happy with the Hurricane, I was pleasantly surprised with the V-10 as we traversed the Grapevine and other hills without too much of a struggle. One of the stops we stayed at was a nice campground on the Klamath River in Northern CA. I have attached a few pics. I will plan on posting more updates when we start off on our 2nd leg with stops in Coeur D' Laine, Glacier NP, Yellowstone NP and Jackson Hole in July. Cheers.

Congrats on living your dream. Good advice on the skin check. My old hide has been exposed to so much of everything, that I go see Doc Derma every 4 months.
Keep us up to date on your adventures. If you have any bumps along the way and need some help or have any questions, there are a lot of very experience folks on the forum ready to jump on it. Hope all goes smoothly for your wife and you both have a great time.
Happy trails to you both.
