My wife and I like to travel in our 20 foot Starcraft travel trailer every chance we get.

When mobile I use my HT's with the DV4 mini on Fusion, DMR, Dstar and the FT857D for HF . Antennas for the RV are a Jetstream JTB3 2m/70cm and a Par End Fed 40/20/10 HF.

Went to Rachel NV and operated near Area 51 and another time near Arecibo Observatory in PR using the FT817ND. 

 

Other fun stuff:  At one time or another have combined ham radio with my sailing and motorcycle hobbies.

Operated an FT817ND  mounted in a tank bag on one my bikes (Suzuki GSX650F), and hand helds on the sailboats.
