Great Meeting New Old Friends

They are a couple who love to travel and, at least in this case, show off their 1950 Spartan which has been beautifully reconditioned. They had just attended a Vintage Trailer Show in Vermont. After they arrived we began talking and found out that they had been to many of the same places we had been and, in fact, we had been there at the same time but we didn't know each other then. That has all changed now as, even after just two nights, we consider them as "friends and family." They are certainly welcome to visit us again anytime they're in the area. Great couple, wonderful people. Thanks for the visit.

Great guests!

Not only were this couple great guests, they're wonderful Boondockers Welcome ambassadors! They stayed with us two nights prior to attending the Tin Can Tourist Rally in our local park. We followed them to the rally where we got to see a bunch of other neat vintage RVs and meet some club members. It was great! We would welcome Mossbackdoug and their gleaming, 1960 Airstream back any time!

Great guests

We really enjoyed having Doug and Terri stay. They are completely self sufficient in their beautiful Airstream trailer. We highly recommend them as boondocking guests.

We had a nice relaxing stay in the yard on the Avon River celebrating our 30th anniversary. We enjoyed a nice fire under the stars on Friday night with hosts and were offered to come inside their house during a storm. This spot is beautiful and hosts are helpful and very accommodating. Thank you!

Great people and great spot

Easy to find, beautiful site right on the river. Super welcoming with brochures on the area and plenty of helpful hints. Super kind to offer power, water, and a dump station. We had a great stay and you should tour their beautiful RVs if you get the chance!

Excellent Hosts!!!

The hosts were a pleasure to meet and to chat with and are welcoming and very generous!

We loved sitting on the bank of the beautiful Avon river, drinking coffee while listening to all the birds!

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend :)

We couldn't have been happier with our first experience with Boondockers Welcome . It was a great site , The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and We had a great time walking in the surrounding towns. Loved seeing the trailers.

Good People

Such giving hosts. It was so easy to be at Avonton. Before we were even set up I was distracted by the beautiful Spartan, Airstreams and of course the Avon river. Doug & Terri made us feel right at home – I felt like family. We were able to relax and be lazy! I am looking forward to my next visit! Thank you!

Amazing hosts

Staying with Doug was a wonderful experience. He and his wife were so hospitable, and knowledgeable about RVing, and their property is picturesque, located right on the Avon River. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay!

River time

Had a great view of the river. If time taken could see the fish and watch them get to the surface for food. Had a good stay, with pleasant hosts. Hope they come our way to stay.

Our stay was great. The hosts let our kids play in their backyard. They were generously hospitable. It was wonderful to meet them.

Wonderful stay

We stayed for two nights in September 2017. We had a wonderful time boondocking with Doug and his wife. Shared Airstream travel stories, and enjoyed touring some of the units Doug has restored. We also got a great restaurant recommendation in Stratford, and parking tips for attending a play at the Shakespeare Festival. Many thanks to them.

Our first was great

This was our first time boondocking and it couldn't have been better. Mossbackdoug was a wonderful host, had full hookup and being on the river for happy hour was made better with the hot out of the oven pumpkin, cranberry muffins. your rig is one of the best we've seen.Thanks for making our first boondocking a great experience, hope to see you again soon

A Very Interesting Hobbyist!!

Keith and I just visited Mossbackdoug for the first time...what a wonderful spot! Camping along a pretty river with fish jumping and beautiful blue herons skimming the water...aaahhhh. The one thing that made it even better...besides our generous and welcoming hosts...was...start the drumroll...FULL hookups!!

A bit of history on the building itself and where the term 'mossback' came from, made for interesting conversation as we sat and watched the Avon flow gently past.

I highly recommend these Boondockers for their warm personalities and for making a fuss over Keith, even though they are not dog owners themselves. Hope to see them again soon.

And if you go, ask for a tour of the Spartan...awesome!!!

So welcoming ....

We arrived to a friendly welcome before we even got out of our Roadtrek!
Interesting couple who restore classic Airstream trailers - and do an amazing job of it. Great spot on the river just outside town.

Great Hosts

A very interesting couple with a passion for Airstream trailers. We couldn't have been happier for having discovered them. They are welcoming and helpful. We highly recommend them and hope to meet them again.

They are charming hosts with a lovely location on the Avon River and are have a wealth of information on the care and feeding of Airstreams. Thanks Doug for the guided tours of you various trailers.
