family white water rafting
Well our story is probably like a lot of other full timers on the road. We had full time jobs and a house but there was something missing. There just wasn’t enough time for all the things we wanted to see and do. Our families are spread all over the US and we never got to spend quality time with them. We purchased our Airstream in 2018 and did a trial run to Utah for 2 weeks. We loved it! We retired and became full-time RVers in September 2019. We love hiking, biking and meeting people as we travel from state to state.
levelmate pro installed in an airstream

LevelMate PRO

We love this quick & easy leveling system. You can mount it in a closet & download the app which will show you not only side to side but front to back within seconds. No need for guessing or stressing.

vornado space heater

Vornado Electric Space Heater

Our electric heater comes in handy when we are plugged into electricity. No need to use our propane to keep warm. It’s also temperature controlled so we can set it and forget it.

propane firebowl for camping

Outland Propane Firebowl

Having a propane fire pit is amazing! No need to buy or search for firewood, especially if there is a fire ban. While we do like campfires this one doesn’t leave you smelling like smoke which is not desirable while living in an RV. Comes with a cover and strap handle for easy storage.

water filters for RV

Clearsource Water Filter

When filling our water tank we use this 2 stage water purification system which protects us from harmful bacteria and other agents. This keeps us from buying an additional bulky system for the inside where space is limited.

RV surge protector

RV Surge Protector

We learned the hard way that this is a must have when plugging into shore power. You never know when there may be a power surge or a bad electrical outlet. This protects us from damage to our electrical in our Airstream.

Anderson Levelers

These levelers and sturdy and easy to use! We use these along with the LevelMate PRO which makes getting level quick and accurate.

zamp soloar panels next to an Airstream

Zamp Portable Solar Panels

Since we do alot of boondocking, having solar allows us to stay unplugged longer. While we do have solar on the roof of our Airstream a portable panel can be constantly moved to face the sun which is awesome. This also folds up and stores in a case taking up very little room.

camp chairs next to an Airstream

Portable Folding Rocking Chair

These rockers are comfortable, sturdy and fold up small. Our large reclining chairs had to go, took up way too much room. We love having chairs to relax outside and these are far better than any chair we had in the past.

Garmin RV 890 GPS

While our truck and phone both have gps they have steered us in the wrong direction more than once. Having an RV GPS allows us to plug in our length, height and weight of our Airstream and truck which prevents us from going down a road that would cause problems. It also has options for locating campgrounds, dining, fuel and many more. Since buying this we have had no more wrong turns!

heavily seasoned chicken on smoker grill

Green Mountain Grill – Smoker

Having a love for BBQ we had to downsize from our Daniel Boone smoker we had when living in a sticks and bricks home. The Davy Crocket is just small enough for storing yet big enough to make 2 slabs of ribs or 2 chickens. When you spend so much time outdoors like we do it’s nice to have the option to cook outside.
