My wife and I recently took delivery on a 2018.5 Lance 1575 lightweight trailer from Richard's Boat and RV in Lancaster, CA. Three months earlier we acquired our new tow vehicle, a 2018 GMC Canyon mid-size pickup with the 2.8 Duramax diesel. It's a terrific, lightweight, nimble, and easy-to-tow package.

We're looking forward to doing some traveling. We love camping and exploring new places, especially in the Southwest. We're also very avid hikers. For some folks it's golfing, rock-hounding, birding, fishing, or 4-wheeling. Our passion is hiking new trails.

My wife and I raise a large garden and are more than happy to share our in-season, fresh produce with you. In the spring we have lettuce, broccoli, peas, radishes, carrots, cabbage, etc. If you're here during the four week span of later June to mid-July, you'll be able to pick ripe raspberries. From mid-August or later you'll be able to enjoy our vine-ripened tomatoes.

The American Southwest and any other interesting places in the West. It's higher elevations when it starts getting hot.

We took delivery of our lightweight, Lance 1575 trailer in December 2017. As time and funds permit, we're looking forward to equipping and modding our new trailer to maximize its dry camping capabilities. I have started the install process of the Nature's Head composting toilet. We'd love to hear from others that have taken this step and how it's worked out for you. Our trailer came equipped with the usual dealer-installed AGM battery. Since I ordered our trailer without the factory installed solar option, I'm in the process of studying solar based electrical systems. There certainly is plenty to learn! Except for the initial upfront cost of the LiFePO4 (lithium) RV batteries, they seem to make a whole lot of sense. The lighter weight, more usable electrical energy, etc. all seem to be pluses. I'd appreciate hearing your experiences (pro and con) with lithium battery use. The Lance 1575 is a 20 feet long trailer which includes about four feet of tongue length.

Great stop in Lewiston

We stayed with Lancer in early August, 2017 and had a great visit, in spite of the pervasive haze from forest fires. Good parking spot, easy to find. On the edge of town and close to services, but in a quiet area with some small farms/ranches. The outgoing hosts we're very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Be sure to get a tour of their awesome garden - impressive! We had the opportunity to join the family for meals and enjoyed interesting and wide-ranging discussions. We look forward to the possibility for a return visit, and highly recommend them as hosts if you are planning to be in their area.

Very helpful hosts!

We were planning a trip through Lewiston and made arrangements to stay with Lancer. However due to extreme forest fire activity in that part of Idaho, heavy smoke and road closures we were forced to change our plans. Our would be hosts went above and beyond to keep us informed of local conditions even getting up in the middle of the night to send us an update and were very helpful in adjusting our plans. We will be back to stay with Lance another day when the smoke is cleared and the fires settled. God Bless and stay safe
