Jupiter Palm Beach Motorcoach Resort – RV Park Review

Being new to the world of RV ownership, I’m far from an aficionado of RV or motor coach parks or resorts. To date, I’ve only camped at four different parks and each one was only for a one night stay.

I’m proud to announce that just a few days after seeing that bus for the first time and taking a couple of test drives through the backroads of Tennessee, I actually pressed the buy button!
