Hi, we are the Swain family. We started traveling full-time in our self built RV/Expedition truck, "Red Rover", in June 2020. You can find us on Instagram @redroverrightover

Paige - the quiet artist who loves museums and beaches
Hailey - the less quiet animal facts expert who loves zoos and paddle boarding

Courteous and Curious

Melaniewashere were polite and friendly. We didn't get to talk to them much, but they left everything clean and no trace they were even there! Hope you enjoy your Blue Ridge Parkway exploring!

Quiet and pleasant guests

Enjoyed hosting this couple. We would recommend them as a guest to any host.

Welcome back anytime!
