  1. UPDATE: We are including the solar electric system and a generator in the sale of this property now. We have a real estate agent we are working with to simplify the process as well. Here is a listing with updated photos and lots of overhead shots, too! https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/2625-E-Mandin-Dr_Yucca_AZ_86438_M95773-70803 ~38 gorgeous acres located in the Stagecoach Trails development on the east side of Yucca, Arizona – about 9.5 miles east of “downtown” Yucca. Conveniently located midway between Kingman and Lake Havasu City, you can be doing just about any type of shopping or recreation you’d like in under an hour. But you still get to enjoy the amazing quiet of the desert every night. Not to mention the views of mountains on every side of you, including the local icon, Flat Top. RV hookups have already been installed, as well as a driveway and graveled clearing. That means you can just drive right in and live your life! This place is perfect for an occasional getaway or for full-time living. This property is ZERO percent flood plain. Not all properties out here can say that. The property is relatively level throughout, which means you can use it. You aren’t losing land to hills, rocks, and flood areas. This property is just far enough off Alamo Road that you don’t get the dust that many properties out here suffer from, but still close enough that your drive to get in and out of the development won’t take you forever. The property is located on a dead end so there are days when literally nobody drives in this area. It is quiet and you will be left to your own business. There is nothing “wrong” with this property. We were stationary for all of 2020 due to coronavirus and we’re ready to hit the road again. THE BASICS Acreage: 38 acres, more or less Parcel #: 243-10-005 County: Mohave County, AZ Electricity: Solar electric system is installed, wiring installed around property, and also comes with generator Septic: Already installed! Water: Two 2500-gallon water tanks and pump already installed! Structures: 14’x16’ building, 14’x16’ custom wall tent, 40’ high-top cargo container Annual Taxes: ~$155 Annual POA dues: $145 Flood plain: 0%! Available: May 1, 2021 THE DETAILS Septic – Rated for 21 fixture units. Designed for multiple bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen. Installed brand-new in September 2020. Water system – Two 2500-gallon water tanks and a pump system. Installed brand new in September 2020. Most people around here have water delivered. It is very affordable to do so – much more affordable than having a well put in and the water tastes great. RV hookups – This property has two sets of electric, septic, and water hookups already installed and ready to connect to! More are possible. Driveway and ~1-acre clearing – This ranch already has a driveway and over one acre of land cleared. You could literally drive right in with just about any vehicle (4WD is NOT required to get here or be here). The clearing is set back from the road so you have plenty of privacy even on the rare occasion someone drives through this part of the neighborhood. Gravel – The clearing has $2,000 worth of gravel that covers about 1/4 of an acre. This not only looks great, but keeps the dust down and also keeps rodents away. The color of the gravel can be seen in one of the photos. Cargo container – This property comes with a 40-foot-long high-top container. The high-top means you have plenty of extra head room for lots of storage or to build out the inside as you desire. These are currently hard to get a hold of and the prices are quite high. The orange one you see in the photos is the container that comes with the property. 12’x16’ stick-built building with a small deck – We built it ourselves and it is very well put together. It could be used for storage or whatever else you can think of. It has been drywalled inside and has high-traffic flooring already installed. It needs some exterior finishing work if you want it to look polished (if you don’t care, then it’s good to go!). It is very well insulated and has a metal roof to keep the heat off as well. We built a ramp to the door so it is very easy to access with any large items you might like to keep inside the building. It is just the right size to easily keep either warm or cool in this environment. Large custom wall tent – This property also comes with a 14’x16’ canvas wall tent custom made for us by Colorado Yurt Company. The tent alone was over $4,000 brand new, and we just purchased it last summer. It is in excellent condition. We installed a custom door so it feels more like walking in and out of a building and you don’t have to deal with tent flaps when it’s breezy or you’re carrying something. We built the wooden platform and frame it stands on. It is on a combination of poured cement and wood framing. All this will be staying with the property. The tent has a UV resistant fly to keep the tent fabric in good condition and it also works great to keep precipitation off. The sides of the tent are fully lined with high-quality screen material, so you could roll up the canvas to be able to see out every side but still be protected from bugs. Cell reception on all three major carriers – T Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon. We work full-time online and are able to work from this property with no issues by hot-spotting on our phones. We regularly are in Zoom meetings without any problem. Garbage service – Not every property in this area can get garbage service, but this one can! Westside Disposal knows where this property is located and has a lot of options for dumpster size and frequency of pick-up. UPS and FedEx delivery – This property has a real address! We filed a building permit and an address has been assigned to this property by the county. UPS and Fedex both know where this property is and have no issues delivering here. (USPS doesn’t serve the properties out here, but you can get a PO box in Yucca very easily. The postmaster is great!) Lots of nature – Many different types of birds are seen regularly on the property, ranging from quail to shrikes to swallows to hawks. Also, cottontails and jack rabbits. At night you might see bats and owls. The property features many Joshua Trees as well as a variety of native shrubs, flowers, and grasses. We started creating a small trail system around the property for nice nature walks (it works well on a mountain bike, too!). You can use the parcel number to locate the property. Please do not visit unannounced as this is our home. Please contact us. If after we speak with you and answer any immediate questions you have, you are still interested in the property, then we would love to have you come out and see it. We can give you turn-by-turn directions. Our address is not in Google Maps. You could move in on May 1! Price: $75,000 – Seller financing is NOT being offered and the sale will go through an escrow process for the safety of all involved. You must have the cash or be able to secure your own financing so that we are paid in full. Email me if interested: info@offgridforever.net
  2. Saguaro National Park Travel Vlog! Located just outside Tucson Arizona, Saguaro National Park is a massive 92,000 acre National Park spread out at two separate locations. This park has a lot to offer. On black Friday we decide to get out of the RV and leave our boondocking spot. We take a day trip to Saguaro National Park. Starting the day off with a drive around the Cactus Forest scenic loop. Making a stop at Javelina Rocks to explore a little more. This is what RV living is all about, our backyard changes every few weeks! Don't forget to subscribe.
  3. Hiking in Picacho Peak State Park was an incredible experience. Located just 30 minutes north of Tucson Arizona this hike won't disappoint. It's fairly flat until you start your ascent up the cables. We decide to do this hike in mid-Novermber and the temps were great. Boondocking nearby makes it easy to get an early start. We highly recommend bringing some rubber-coated gloves for the cable section. This is what RV life is all about. Don't forget to subscribe! https://youtu.be/XPrdrPyafNY
  4. Gilbert Ray campground is located near Tucson Arizona. It's in close proximity to the city and offers 30 amp hookups, trash, and large RV friendly sites. RVing fulltime can often come with many expenses. State parks are great if you are looking to save money. With Saguaro National Park close by, there are many opportunities for mountain biking, hiking, and photography. We hope you enjoy this campground review. Don't forget to subscribe. https://youtu.be/Zaaqe5p97V8
  5. Long term travel comes with surprises. In this RVing travel vlog we are headed south from Las Vegas NV to Tucson AZ. Along the way, our 5th wheel has a minor issue. Full time rv living brings its own problems and issues. As we prepare for a travel day we realized that our fifth wheel toy hauler has a flat tire. It's quite a disappointment because the trailer has brand new tires! This boondocking location in Nevada was littered with trash and we picked up a rusty nail. We hope you enjoy our journey to Tucson. Don't forget to subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLg659pamfs
  6. In this full time RV living travel vlog we are finally back on the road as fulltime RVers. Spending the summer in Southern California with friends and family we are excited to hit the road. Our remote jobs allow us to hit the road in our 5th wheel. Heading towards Arizona for one last family get together we stop off at Barstow CA not even long enough to bother unhitching our fifth wheel toyhauler. Then we arrive at Pirate's Cove Resort and Marina where we have the luxury of a full hook up RV site. Living out of an RV fulltime has allowed us to travel all over the country, come along as we get back on the road.
  7. I read this topic and it’s helpful. https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/137485-winter-location-suggestion/ We just started our full time adventure this month. We have an HDT pulling a 36’ fifth wheel. We are looking for less expensive suggestions for wintering in the south. We only have a bit of experience with Florida, and I agree it can be buggy and crowded in most areas. I have family in South Miami which is my only interest. I wonder if Ft Meyers is less expensive than Miami area? According to many, Arizona is just about the best for weather. We have never been there. Texas either. We can find links to RV parks all week long but I’m asking for help to narrow it down if possible. thanks in advance,
  8. A typical RV travel day! We have some minor issues which remind us full time RV living is not always fun. Moving day in an RV is when you find out what is broken, or you actually break something else! In this video we are on the move again! With many states beginning to lift stay-at-home orders, more places are starting to open up so we decide to seek cooler weather. Finally leaving Flagstaff Arizona, we head north towards Page, Arizona and eventually make it to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. We break our camera before we even take off but we make the best of it with fun stops along the way. We hope you like this video. Please don't forget to subscribe!
  9. Off roading our tow rig is one of our favorite past times! Camping near the Cinder Hills OHV area, we head out for a weekend trail ride. Flagstaff Arizona is a great area if you love full time RV living! Cinder Hills OHV area is just outside Flagstaff, AZ. There are many volcanic cinder cones and craters in the area, including Sunset Crater National Monument. The combination of ponderosa pine forest and volcanic sand dunes make the area incredibly unique and like nothing we have seen before. Our tow rig is built for this, with aftermarket Carli suspension, King shocks and 35" tires. It just keeps on ticking!. Hopefully you enjoy the video and don't forget to subscribe!
  10. We hit some trails while boondocking near Flagstaff, Arizona. Making sure to keep our distance from friends, we head to a nearby 4x4 trail and end up finding more than we thought! This is full time RV living at it's best! Once again we find ourselves in the snow, but that's OK with us! Being from sunny Southern California, snow is a welcomed occurrence! We also come across another giant pile of trash in the middle of the forest. Of course we couldn't just leave it there, so we load it up and take another load of trash to the dump! We hope you enjoy this video. Please be sure to subscribe.
  11. This is RV living on our Adventure Endeavor! Travel days are typically a fun day, but moving can be a bit stressful unless you plan ahead. We try to scout out camp locations, dump stations and cell signal. Planning is key to an easy RV moving day. Traveling is a lot of fun but certain parts can be stressful, so we try to skip the stress and do a little advanced homework when possible. This includes scouting out our new potential camp location. Check the road conditions, entries, and exits in boondocking locations. Make sure there is an easy(ish) plan for dumping and filling the rig. And of course check the cellular signals before arriving with the whole rig! We hope you enjoy this video and get some great value out of it! Don't forget to subscribe!
  12. LEAVE NO TRACE. Dispersed camping and RV living go hand in hand. We do our best to keep our public lands clean. Hopefully you find this video inspiring and share it with your friends. While boondocking just outside Flagstaff, Arizona we start to realize there are large amounts of trash dumped in the surrounding area. On a daily basis we pick up what we can and throw it away when we venture in to the local grocery store. But we find ourselves wanting to clean up even more so we contact the local ranger station to ask if we can bring in a big load of trash and use their dumpsters.
  13. Hiking in Sedona, AZ is just what we needed to get us out of the RV for a few hours. Fulltime RV living allows us to hike in incredible new locations. We are Adventure Endeavor, thanks for tuning in! While hunkering down near Flagstaff, Arizona we decide to head a bit South to warmer weather and go for a day hike. We decide on Mount Wilson because this trail offers unparalleled views of Sedona and the red rocks. It's a 10 mile out and back hike from Midgley Bridge. Thanks for coming along, we hope you enjoy this video. Don't forget to subscribe!
  14. 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!
  15. RV solar! We finally installed solar panels on our toy hauler. Full time RV living is so much easier with solar. It's definitely not cheap but is a great investment, especially if you love boondocking.If you have been watching the channel for a while you know that we had a solar system installed on our last rig (Keystone Cougar). We swapped rigs over the summer and acquired a toy hauler with a built-in Cummins Onan 5500 generator. This has made it possible for us to boondock without solar and save up money for our full solar install. In the video we talk about lithium vs lead acid batteries, where we went to get the panels installed, and show you all the basics of our system. Hope you enjoy and please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!
  16. On our way to meet up with some fellow Xscapers we stop off at Truck Haven for some shut eye. The next day we find some free camping near Yuma Arizona, American Girl Mine to be exact. RVing is more fun with friends! A few weeks ago we met Jill and Curt at the Xscapers annual bash. Instantly being connected through off roading, they invited us down to boondock near American Girl Mine just north west of Yuma Arizona. Over the the next few days we did some exploring, off roading and smoked some delicious meats together. We also go to the valley of the names and drive to the bottom of American Girl mine, this is a fun one! Hope you enjoy!
  17. At the Xscapers annual Bash 2020 we took our full size RAM on a jeep trail. We joined fellow Xscapers to hit Redline jeep trail. The tow rig did pretty well and everyone was glad to have us along. This was such an amazing way to jump right into meeting new people at the Xscapers Bash. Our tow rig has been highly modified for towing and off road performance, rock sliders, extra shocks and larger all terrain tires. This trail pushed us to the limit though, trying a couple different bonus lines we ended up needing a small tow strap tug! Everyone on the trail was great and happy to watch us give it a try. Looks like we might need new bumpers though.......we received some minor carnage. Hope you enjoy the video!
  18. Xscapers is a group within the Escapees RV Club, geared towards newer generations of RVers. Dry camping at Xscapers Annual Bash was amazing. This was our first event and it did not disappoint. Xscapers is a diverse community with active, adventurous RVers, that work while on the road full or part time! Located in Lake Havasu Arizona the annual bash is the largest event they do all year. Almost 400 RVs and 700 people converge to share laughs, gain knowledge, make friends and memories. This event (our first) is packed with fun activities such a boot camps, hiking, concerts, Olympics and seminars. This is a brief video of what to expect at the event. Hope you enjoy and if you haven't joined the club, you don't know what you are missing.
  19. We are having more fun on the water. Jet skiing, paddle boarding and picking up floating river trash! Pirate Cove Resort is pretty amazing they have everything you could ask for. If you hang around till the end of this video you can see the amazing sunsets the area has to offer. We also give a quick resort summary/ review! Our thoughts on the place, let us know if you have any questions! Hope you enjoy the video!
  20. ✪✪✪In this video✪✪✪ We head to the Colorado River with friends for a long hot weekend. This is a family trip that our friends do every year and we happen to keep getting invited! While we were there the temperatures were ranging from 100-120 degrees! It's safe to say that we had to get a little creative considering that our trailer only has one A/C unit. This video has so much fun packed in, boating, volleyball, swimming and much more.↩ Also stick around till the very end, we save a Prius! From a sand pit, our friends took a wrong turn at night. We ended up going on a rescue mission! Hope you enjoy the video!

  22. So I'll be honest with y'all... I'm a newbie to RVing, a newbie to full-timing, AND even a newbie to towing a travel trailer (or towing anything at all really! yeah, I know, gasp!)... but I'll be doing ALL THREE in about 4 weeks. I went through RV Online University already, and I'm graduating from Escapees Bootcamp tomorrow at the Escapade in Sedalia, among other classes I've completed, so I think I've done as much video and word-of-mouth and classroom educating myself as I can at this point (and I do have an in-person driving class tentatively scheduled for my trailer pick-up date too). However, there are several very specific electrical and security-related mods that I want done to my travel trailer (it's a tiny econo-20-footer, FYI), and I am looking for recommendations from people who have had mobile RV tech work done in Arizona and can vouch for the both the trustworthiness of the tech and the quality of the work they had done. As a solo female, I really find it critical to educate myself ahead of time and get as many recommendations as I possibly can, never really taking the first, second, or even 13th person's word on anything... because... I mean... it's a wild world out there (even if you aren't Cat Stevens). And traditionally, I was never the used-car-dealership-savvy-type, if that says anything about my vehicle acumen. I didn't even know it was possible to negotiate the price of the very first USED car I bought (as a lowly Air Force enlistee). So I just paid them what they asked. Yeah, I know... cringe, cringe, cringe! And yeah, I do know a *bit* more now. I know enough to be skeptical of everything, at least. But I also know that there are some really good people in this group. So please, help a girl out if you can? So to be honest, the potentially most expensive mobile tech work I'm looking to get done (and I don't have an unlimited budget) include: a solar panel array (160 watt x 3) + inverter (3000 watt pure sine) + replacement battery bank (200-300 Ah lithium ion bank) install (and making sure that the wiring is compatible with all of the existing appliances) so I'd need someone who can do all of that... on a 20-foot travel trailer (roof space is at a premium, but I really don't want to do portable/foldables, and I think the 3 160s would fit, even if with brackets to raise them above some of the roof structures/appliances). Also... a smaller matter... but an RV-specializing locksmith... I want to put a deadbolt on my door, among a few other security-related things. Any recommendations in that regard, whether in AZ (maybe near Tucson or Phoenix)... or even better, in Indiana near Nappanee, would be great! Thanks for reading! Any constructive comments are much appreciated!
