A small family looking to explore

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Ben and Mandy, and we have a son named Charlie. We started RVing in 2018, slowly taking longer and longer trips. Our goal is to go full-time, hopefully in the near future.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Ben is an electrician and has mechanical skills. Mandy used to be a veterinary technician.

BenandMandy's Pets

Yes, 2 senior dachshunds. They are usually pretty quiet and like to lay in the sun.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We are still fairly new to boondocking. We started with campgrounds, then we did several harvest hosts last year (from Florida to Minnesota) and quickly realized we enjoyed boondocking much more than camping at campgrounds.

BenandMandy's Hometown

We live in the Tampa Bay area in Florida.

Happy to host this young family

BenandMandy were a pleasure to host. Happy their young son had a good time playing outside. It is heart warming to see a young family out doing things together. They would be welcome back anytime.

Nice Young Family

A very nice and friendly young family with a sharp and inquisitive toddler. Great guests that communicated well and arrived on time per their ETA. Only here one night, we were able to visit briefly when they arrived and before they departed. Good folks, and they’re welcome back anytime!
