  1. RVing Baja California is a very exciting experience, but can you take a large RV to Baja? In this video, we break down the pros and cons of a large RV vs a smaller truck camper and driving to Baja California. After almost one month in Baja California, we are back. We had a great time in our truck camper boondocking on beautiful beaches. The whole trip we were thinking to ourselves, Would we take our 5th wheel to Baja? When we headed south to the U.S. border in a borrowed truck camper this kept going through our minds. With our experience, this video should help you make the right choice if you are planning on heading south to Baja Mexico.
  2. $66,000My wife and I purchased this RV new 2 and a half years ago and have been living in it full time. Most of that time has been boondocking as we have performed many upgrades listed below. MSRP was around $90,000 and we have added everything below.Solar setup (Cost around 20k):- 1260 Watts of solar from 7 180 watt panels purchased from AM Solar- Victron 3000 watt hybrid inverter- 600 ah lithium battery bank from LifeBlue (3 x 200 ah batteries)- Victron 85A Advanced MPPT Solar Charge Controller- Victron Battery Monitor- Victron Color Control MonitorOther additions, options, or customizations:- Onan 5500 watt generator (uses LP from factory tanks)- Auto Generator Start- Custom built corner bench seat with storage underneath (table pictured will not be included, but can easily add another table top as legs stay with the RV)- Matching sofa and chair (factory ones fell apart)- Natures Head composting toilet (this means that the black tank has never been used except for extra grey water storage, pipes are all still there for easy conversion back to normal toilet)- King Size Bed- Larger double door fridge- There is no TV at the moment because I had custom added a nice 4k 55 inch tv that I kept. I can easily add another tv back onto the mount, although I don't recommend going that large again, was difficult to get to the storage behind it.- Very nice canvas slide toppers on all three slides- Alumaguard Main Awning- Holding tank heat pads- Just installed a brand new 15k AC a couple months ago (didn't get low pro this time and it's much quieter and works way better, also it still isn't the highest part of the roof)- Larger hot water heater- 6 Point auto leveling jacks- Installed new tires 6 months ago with higher load rating- The front AC shown in the solar panel pics is no longer on the RV, but it was replaced with a fantastic fan (we never used the front AC and much prefered the fan)Feel free to ask about anything we have listed or pictured as I may have forgotten about some things. We can include many things that we have for this RV like extra propane regulators, emergency jacks, compost toilet cleaning kit, etc. Photos

  4. We needed to get outside! While self isolating at our new spot in Flagstaff Arizona we decided to take a day trip drive to Sycamore Canyon. RV living has been great, but we needed a break from the trailer and Netflix. While dispersed camping near Flagstaff Arizona has been great, getting outside has been essential. After filling our water, dumping our tanks and loading up on groceries we were ready for another 2 weeks of social isolation. deciding to get out and explore the area we take a drive to Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Obviously second to the Grand Canyon. It's a wild wet time, many muddy roads and a couple water crossings to get there. Later in the day the weather turns on us while exploring JD Cabin near White Horse Lake. We hope you enjoy this video and are staying safe during these tough times. Don't forget to subscribe!
  5. The Eastern Sierra region of California is a special place. Home to places like Mount Whitney, Reward Mine and Alabama Hills, there multiple hot springs, high alpine peaks, and great fishing. In this video we show you why you need to go to this region of California. Camping at the base of the Eastern Sierras we drive up Whitney Portal road, Hike to the bottom of Reward Mine and even rescue a stuck Toyota pickup truck. Don't forget get to do your part and leave no trace. We cleaned up multiple bags of trash around the area. Hope you enjoy this video!
  6. Let's talk about getting out of your comfort zone! This video is a perfect example and will be empowering to many people. Heading back from the Xscapers Bash Melissa decides to tow our huge 5th wheel. Imagine doing something COMPLETELY out of your comfort zone. How does that make you feel? How does that make you grow? Well that's exactly what Melissa did, she faced her fears. To be honest it wasn't that bad. Trailer/RV towing can be nerve racking for beginners, take it slow, be methodical and have a great teacher! Seek Discomfort people, it's the only way to grow! Hope you enjoy the video and get value out of it. Please give it a share if you are empowered.
  7. Dogs love RV Living also! Traveling with dogs can be difficult. But they get to be with you even more while discovering new sniffs, places and sticks to chew on! There are some things to consider. We finally introduce you to our two dogs Blue and Zamboni. Going into their back stories, likes and dislikes. Towards the end of the video (Time Stamps)we go over pros and cons of RVing with pets. Boondocking, BLM and general camping with your pets and what to be aware of. Hope you enjoy our super cute pups! We absolutely love them.
  8. Come along as we explore a few different areas along the 395 HWY in California. Rv living allows us the freedom to travel where ever our hearts, by simply following the weather and maintaining a strong cellular signal. While camping north of Bishop California we head into town to explore there small shops and grab some coffee. The following day we wake up pretty early to make the trek north up the 395 to Ruby Lake Trail Head. The hike ends up being a perfect day hike in an extremely beautiful area. On our drive back to camp/home we decide to hitch up and head south back to Fossil Falls for the night. They have a small campsite that is VERY primitive, but only $6 a night.
  9. We are looking at a 43ft 5th Wheel Toyhauler and are concerned about finding "inexpensive" places (meaning non-commercial) sites to RV at. We are new full timers and at this time not equipped to boondock but don't want to spend the high dollars in commerical prefer the off the beaten track. We are concerned that we may be looking at too large of a rig!!! Any ideas, thoughts, appreciated.
