Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We're college graduates who were tired of feeling pressured to have the "American Dream" so we downsized, sold our house in Michigan and moved into our remodeled fifth wheel trailer in April of 2020.
We've got three boys who we home-school & we're planning on exploring the US over the next few years together!

Simple and easy

They were in town to visit relatives so they were mostly not around. Very nice folks and we'd welcome them back anytime!

Great guests!

It was great to see the kids enjoying running around the grass pasture. Communication about arrival time was great, and they were quiet and respectful. Welcome back anytime.

Would Welcome Back!

This family was a pleasure to host. They were quiet to the point that, if we couldn’t see their rig, we wouldn’t have known they were here. They were also great at communicating as far as getting the reservation and letting their ETA be known accurately. We would definitely recommend others to welcome them and we would welcome them back.

Friendly Family

We were pleased to host these folks. They were very communicative. They were here for 5 days and hardly noticed their presence. We would welcome them back anytime.


November 2020

Terrific Family

Due to Covid we did not get to visit much. They are welcome back at any time.

Paradise in Chesterville

What a sweet couple with their 3 energetic children. Due to covid restrictions we did not get to spend as much time visiting as we would have liked but would be very pleased to to host these fine folks again when things settle back down. Safe travels as you head towards Texas.
