Availability

Legend:

Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

Rt 24 is a busy road with some noise from trucks. There is a steel factory across from our location so during warm days when their doors are open you may hear noise from them. We have grain bins here and if the fans are running you may hear them also. Most folks say none of these things were an issue. Just an FYI.

Location

Fairbury, IL, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Fairbury Racetrack is in town for dirt track racing on Saturday nights. Specialty shops of Fairbury are too numerous to mention them all.

Mayberry RFD Stay

Great accommodating host. They're normal area was busy supporting harvesting So he had prepped another area for guest to stay. The area was great but he even offered to mow additional area if we thought it was needed. Great hardware store! The dogs loved all the attention.

Fun Stop!

First of all, I like tools, nuts, bolts, and wires. The Host runs my kind of store on his property.

Our Host really made us feel welcome and gave us a golf cart tour of his property. Later, I got to go shopping.

And, our Host is very supportive of his local community and local businesses. We did get the ice cream, milk, curds, and meat.

Mr D gave us a few choices for parking. Parking depends on harvest and nearby business activity.

We slept very well and really enjoyed our stay. Fairbury is real. It might be RFD, but people apply themselves and people seem to care.

Most wonderful

We had a wonderful time. The host we great. Their store is out of this world. I've never seen such a large amount of tools and hardware. Even camper parts. Everyone should try to visit. We will if we are in the area again.

Handyman’s paradise

Truly a handyman’s paradise, as advertised. The store on the property has everything you need to fix any of those nagging RV repairs. Property is beautiful, plenty of room, no obstacles, and a beautiful small town nearby.

Wonderful Stay!!!

What a wonderful and warm set of hosts, they made us feel like we had been friends for years. The location and ability to choose where we wanted to park was great. Loved their store/shop, a real man’s candy store…..could’ve spent hours in there. We really look forward to them coming to visit us in Wisconsin. Great Stay!

This was our first time boon docking. We had a great stay with Dwifft, quite country setting. The guys really enjoyed the shop! Beautiful town with nostalgic homes. We love the country. We went up town and had some of the best ice cream at the Kilgus Farmstead County Store. Hope we can return the favor some day.

Serene setting

Another terrific BDW stop. Host very welcoming and provided a choice of parking spots. A quiet night next to the cornfield was greatly appreciated. The hardware store is impressive. Nearby farm was a gem for fresh milk, eggs, freshly ground coffee and wonderful homemade soap. Would definitely return if in area again. Thanks D&S!

An oasis among the Cornfields

A wonderful spot. Our host was friendly and very helpful. Our Boondocking spot was well situated to give everyone their space. The nearby town was friendly and packed with essential services as well as interesting shops.

We'll certainly ask to stay here whenever we're in the area.

First Boondocking Night a Success

There's a reason why this guy and his lovely home is a Super Host.

He and his family are so friendly and kind. He responded quickly to our request when we couldn't find anything else and it was looking like we'd be sleeping in a Cracker Barrel parking lot.The spot was under the shade of a lovely tree with pretty cow pastures and flowers all around.

We were even able to pick up some parts for our camper from his shop. Which by the way was amazing to wander through.

We would definitely stop here again on our travels.

Excellent Host and Site

Dwlfft is an excellent host. He met us and showed us where to park. After setting up, we spent some time (and money) in his store. Definitely a toy shop for those who are mechanically inclined. Dwlfft directed us to several local sites. If you stay, Dave's Market and Kilgus Farmstead are two of our favorites. WanderingBearAdventures would love to wander by here again.

Perfect spot

For a quick overnight, it was perfect for me. Level gravel lot. Got there too late to visit the store, looks like a great place though!

Great Host Aagain

Again nothing but great things to say about Dwlfft. We got a hold of him almost at the last minute to see if we could stay with him again and he was very accommodating for us. Great Stay.!

Great Host

This is a great place to stop for the night. There is a factory right across the street form them but it didn't bother us one bit. When it gets time to go to bed it is pretty quiet. Dwlfft was a marvelous host and made us feel right at home. The business he has there is really a tool mans dream. My husband and I both looked around in there for quite a while. if you have time do be sure to stop in there and look around, you never know what you might find!!

Highly recommend

Quiet and peaceful nights rest here. Always watched Mayberry as children and now we can say we visited a real life Mayberry RFD! Very awesome hardware store with all kinds of tools you wouldn't be able to get at just any hardware store. Would definitely use again. 👍

Great Stopover

Mayberry RFD is a great stop if you're in the area. Easily accessible and less that 5 minutes from a cute little town that has everything you need. The "warehouse noise" some mentioned was not even noticeable to us. Would absolutely stay again.

Great Host!

Super friendly & a really cool business if you like tools & gear of all kinds.
Easy going, spent time showing me options for my overnight parking and fun conversationalist.
I'll be back, if they'll have me.

We had a wonderful and peaceful evening at Mayberry RFD. We will definitely visit again when we are in the area.

If you need tools, he has them!

Quick to Accomidate

As our first stay at Boondockers Welcome host we are very encouraged. The circumstances were extremely unusual as road construction was going on and Auto racing in town on a week night. No bother to us and Dwlfft was apologetic though none was in his control. Offering us a nice open field behind his home/professional tool store, we easily leveled and watched photo worthy sun set and rise. As a Home Improvement contractor I marveled at his stores' inventory. A must see for anyone regularly disappointed at the big box stores.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Pam & Daryl! Not only was their location lovely - overlooking beautiful farm fields - but we really hit it off. After dinner, they showed us around their place, including their Fastener & Supply store. (FYI: It has everything in the way of hardware in case a Boondocker is in need.) We would love to come back for a visit in the future.

Nice place

We had a nice evening here. Quiet in spite of the factory across the road and a beautiful starry night. We also enjoyed perusing through the store for needed bits n pieces.

Friendly hosts!

Dwifft was in the driveway when we pulled up, showed us several options for parking, and after we were set up offered me a tour of his store. It was very impressive, and I could have spent hours browsing the tool section! His wife met us while we were setting up, and within minutes we were discussing shared experiences in the military. Great hosts, and the only downside to the stay was the noise from the highway and the steel warehouse across the highway that operated 24/7. Even with that, we slept well.
