Acme71's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

26 feet long

I have both the 26' GMC Class A Toyhauler, and a 36' Class C Toyhauler, we sometimes pull a trailer or towd. The GMC is a 1978 but fully restored, modern and heavily customized into a Toyhauler Floorplan. It has a turbocharged GMC 8100 engine, all electric (20k ah battery pack made from 1/3 of Tesla automobile battery pack, 1200 w solar) with compost toilet and recirculating filtered grey water system, my wife takes 15 minute showers washing hair and all using 1 pint of water lost to the evaporation and the towel. About the same amount of water for a load of laundry. The Class C is a Gulfstream EnduraMax Toyhauler, modified with composing toilet and grey water filtered recycling system. We use the 26' GMC most of the time.

Facinating host

Host is a world traveler, speaks more than 2 languages (one Chinese), inventor and true jack of all trades, including holder of the world speed record for an RV (I kid you not! lol). 30 minutes south of Austin.

Great Host

We appreciated our time staying here. He was very helpful in suggestions for a repair on our trailer and completed it for us. His knowledge of world affairs is amazing as he has travelled the world. A wonderful host.

Welcoming Host

The host was very kind and welcoming. We shared ideas, conversation, and he was extremely helpful. His property is safe and easily accessible from the highway. He kindly offered electric, water, and he even has a place for dumping. We would gladly stay here again.

Great spot...

...to tuck your head down for a night or two with water and electric available and a quiet neighborhood. Although our host was on the road elsewhere, we did converse via email and he made us perfectly welcome. We were greeted by the two little boys from next door who were obviously the security guards and friends of our host. We would stay again.

Excellent Host

Friendly and Excellent host. A nice quiet spot that we were able to enjoy for a couple of evenings. He even helped me check out the front end of my truck as I was concerned about some unusual heat and smell coming from the front tires. If I find myself in the area again, I will make sure to reach out again to stay here and to see how his GMC motorhome "build" is going.

Friendly, helpful host.

Great, quiet place to spend the night after a long day of driving. Our host even welded the cracks on our tow dolly.
Thanks for everything!
