New forum member from the RV community
This is my first post. My wife and I are both iPad users, not iPad2. They are the originals and their big brother is an iMac. They are perfect for our lifestyle.
We are also retired and traveling in our 40' motorhome full time. Our home is where we park the coach.
We are interested in knowing if there are other RVers in the forum. If so, we would love to hear about interesting ways they use their iPad in conjunction with RV travel.

Welcome to the forum.
I live in an RV, and an RV park, but I can't call myself mobile. I've moved the trailer maybe four times since I got it in 2001, and been at my current park (owned by my aunt) for four years. In some ways the RV makes the iPad slightly less useful. The main computer is always so close that using the iPad for remote internet access is pointless (except when lazing about in bed, of course).
Instead I tend to use it in conjunction with the computer, as separate device of looking things up and, of course, playing an occasional game. I also enjoy reading a lot of my internet content on it, even when sitting at the computer. It's just a more comfortable reader than the big screen.
And books, of course. Probably 90% of my books are ebooks these days. I'm sure you've noticed how quickly books become a pain to keep in an RV. At least of you're like me, and don't like to get rid of them just because you're finished reading them.
