Behind the Scenes Tour: Inside Harvey, the Best of the Road RV

We have spent the past few days in a palatial retreat on wheels. Harvey, the aptly named RV, is our home for the next three weeks and you won’t hear us complaining. Harvey is a 40-foot Fleetwood Discovery that is taking us from state-to-state for a little Best of the Road pre-funk. Harvey is also HUGE. He has one full-slide and one half-slide, meaning that he can expand outward, giving us double the amount of space. Check out the difference below…

This is what the interior looks like while the coach is moving. The slides are pulled in and it’s a little cozy.

Here’s what Harvey looks like with both of his slides out. It is a staggering difference! I can do cartwheels around the living area.

Harvey's interior in all its glory.

The beautiful Fleetwood coach comes with all the amenities of home. We have a stocked kitchen complete with full-size fridge, microwave, sink, oven, and stove. We even have a plasma screen TV in case one needs a little distraction while in the kitchen. Don’t be alarmed. If you don’t want to watch TV in the kitchen, you can watch it in the master bedroom, in either bunk bed, at the front of the coach, or on the OUTSIDE itself. That’s a total of six TVs. SIX.

Directly across from the kitchen is our dining and reclining area. I’ve grappled with sleeping on the couch instead of my bed. It’s just too comfortable. It actually pulls out into a queen bed and I just might try it out this evening.

As it is our first time living on board an RV, we were a little worried about what the bathroom situation would be like. Would there be a shower? Will there be enough water? Will the water be hot?

What we’ve learned is that it’s pretty much just a regular bathroom with the exception of extra switches that one needs to flip to get the water running. We compare it to being on a ship. You wouldn’t want to have a 30 minute shower, but the water is hot and it definitely does the job.

Just like home.

The other perks of our Fleetwood Journey RV? A washer AND dryer, full size King bed, bunk beds (score!), and an abundance of storage space. We are not left wanting, that’s for sure.

So there you have it, the Best of the Road Fleetwood RV. We are continuing our road trip with our awesome driver, Bob-o, getting everyone excited for this year’s rally. When we’re not relaxing in the oh-so comfortable chairs, you can find us posted at our computers, getting blog posts and videos ready. We’re hoping to have some new videos from the road soon.

You can follow all of our adventures in real time by checking into our facebook, twitter, and instagram accounts. Special thanks to Rand McNally, USA TODAY, and Fleetwood for this incredible experience.

    I WANT A HARVEY!!! In 1970 and again in 1971 I went with my cousins from Connecticut. They picked me up in Indiana driving a 3/4 ton pickup, I believe, on/in the back was the largest camper the truck would handle. Five adult size people lived for three weeks, driving into Western Canada, down the West Coast to Los Angeles and back through St.Louis, in the camper. What fun we had and how I would like to repeat those trips!! Except maybe for the three blowouts with those Low Profile Camper Special Tires! Of course I wouldn’t be able to buy the gas. I am so envious!!

    Does the expansion extend the sleeping area? Probably not, just the living, food area,huh? Although, how you going to have King bunks without expansion? Water and fuel capacity ? What a bus!

    How do you think it will handle 6 people?
