Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a retired couple living in Southern Oregon and California. Recently acquired a Roadtrek Simplicity SRT.

Love boondocking rather than campgrounds. Try to be low impact boondockers.

We love travel and food.

Solid Guest

RenVan's text communications were top notch. They arrived on time and were easy to please. Quiet, respectful and personable. They had a tough day on the road and hooked up and settled in for a good nights rest. They are welcome back anytime.

Enjoyable meet up of RenVan

As boonedockerswelcome guests RenVan was good with communicating their arrival and departure. We wish they could have stayed longer and hope they come back again. Good luck finding that future retirement town. We would be happy to have them as neighbors. If you host these people you’ll be glad you’ve made that decision.

It was a pleasure to host this nice couple. I didn't get much time to talk with them . They are welcome to come back.

This is the guest you wish you had more time with. I enjoyed meeting them. Never knew they were here or when they left. No signs they had ever been here. I welcome them back anytime!



June 2021

Welcome anytime!

Didn’t get to meet them but based on communication they seem very sweet! Left the area just as they found it. We’d love to host them again.

Perfect boondockers

We hardly knew they were there. I’m sorry I didn’t get to visit with them and they are welcome back.

Welcome Anytime

Good visit. Guest kept me informed and communicated with me very well. As I was away the day he visited, we did not meet in person. I truly hope he can return and we can meet in person

All good

Had fun having more Chinese speakers on the property again. Wish they could have stayed longer.

Welcome back anytime.

Delightful world travelers

Renvan is a widely traveled (outside the USA) couple. It was delightful to be able to have a wide ranging conversation. Their rig is a perfect fit in our driveway. Rarely have we encountered a more thoughtful and knowledgeable couple. Hopefully we will see them again either here or down the road.


June 2021

So nice!

Super interesting people, great communication and helpful while we got them settled in. Happy to have them back!


June 2021

Nice couple.

Twelve hour stays are not much time to meet new people. They are nice people and very much appreciate what we as hosts have to offer. Welcome back anytime.
