Get Ready for a New Boondockers Welcome Site

Back in May, we announced that Boondockers Welcome had merged with Harvest Hosts, and told you to look forward to some exciting changes.

Over the past few months, our team has been hard at work to improve the Boondockers Welcome user experience by creating a single website for both Boondockers Welcome and Harvest Hosts with a range of new features that work across both networks.

Working Towards Inclusion for People of Color

The Boondockers Welcome community has always been built on curiosity and generosity. Our members are curious about the world and want to experience it either by traveling, or having the world come to their door. And our hosts prove their generosity time and again, welcoming strangers to their property who then leave as friends.

But it is important for us to recognize that RVing has not traditionally been a very diverse pastime. The vast majority of RVers are white. But the joys that RVing can bring are just as relevant to people of color. Being able to travel in comfort with those you love and see the vast beauty of North America is something that should be accessible to everyone, without fear of discrimination or mistreatment based on the color of your skin.
