We are retirees who love our motorhome, winters in Florida, or cruising in the Caribbean

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are located in southwest lower Michigan - Grand Rapids/Kentwood to be exact. We are near an international airport, close to shopping malls, near freeways, and near Calvin College in Grand Rapids. We are in a condo project and as such we are limited to 24' max for 1 overnight. We love to travel in the Caribbean, the US, and almost anywhere we find something interesting.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Can handle a wrench and socket set. Most of the repairs on our unit are handled at home, from water heater replacements to changing light bulbs.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Walmart, church parking lots, and shopping mall lots because they are available almost everywhere.

BJ's Rig

Rig Type: Class C

23 feet long

We have a Damon Escaper 22' long class C motorhome; no slideouts. Totally self contained with plenty of water, dump tanks, generator and ac for dry camping anywhere. Our motorhome takes up residence in a garage instead of outside in the summer sun and the harsh winters of Michigan. On occasion we take along our Chevy Aveo, the red color does not match the blue trim on the motorhome, but we feel it compliments it. ;-)

Cool Peeps!

Great new friends! Wish I had a bottle of wine and a couple more hours, would have loved to have chatted with you longer, but come back again next year. And so loved your rig! You gave me a lot of inspiration. After being so comfortable and wow'd from your old gal, I'm thinking maybe I don't need a new rig after all. Still not sure, but you have definitely given me something to think about. Safe travels and the best to you and your family!

Would definitely recommend this couple to other hosts!

Great Stay - October 2017

My friend and I stayed at BJ's for one night in October 2017 and had a great experience in this very quiet area. Even though our hosts couldn't be there when we arrived, they had made the arrangement so we could hook up. We had a lovely chat in the morning with them. Thank you very much for your hospitality.
