Since 2016 Johan and Loes travelled every winter for 4-5 months true Canada and USA with their own Dutch RV 24 ft. In 2016 we shipped it from Belgium to Halifax, Canada, and travelled from the eastcoast and Florida to Las Vegas. We storaged the RV there and flew back to Holland.
In october 2017 we came back till february 2018 for make an other trip at de westcoast for 4,5 months. Now in october 2018 we came back again for an other 4,5 month. We started in San Francisco and want to go this time to Baya California and then up to the Atlanta-area before we fly back to Holland from that place.
We are married and 50+, our 2 kids 25 en 23 years old, they stayed at their own place. We love to meet other people from other countries to tell more about our journey and living in Holland and to hear the stories of the hosts. Johan stopped working in June 2016 (now he have some volunteer jobs and is ambulance-driver for repat patients all over Europe to Holland) and Loes stopped working 2 years before. So we have a lot of time to do other nice things in live and like to travel.
A lot of travel experience all over the world
No but we love dogs ( and all other animals)
We started in dec 16 and have no favorites, we stayed at diverrend places and we loved them all. We met lovely and friendly people.

Its a Dutch small RV German made (Hymer Exsis I) and 24 ft long incl bikerack. Build in 2013 with a Ford motor.
we had a nice visit with Johan and Loes, hope they can come back one day when they have more time. We will show you around the local area. Best wishes on your travels.
These are the very kind of people who make us happy we are Boondockers. Johan and Leos were perfect guests. We enjoyed learning about their country and hearing about their trip in the US. We have new friends!
Johan and Loes are delightful... very considerate and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we had together. What great adventurers! They are from the Netherlands and are traveling in their lovely little Hymer RV. They will leave the RV in the States when they go home for the summer and will be back next Fall. Be sure to ask for a tour of their RV.
We had plans the evening they arrived. My first impression was a good one. I know it's not always easy but they arrived early enough in the day that we didn't have to worry about them being settled before leaving for the evening. On the other hand they are very self sufficient and would have been fine if we had not been around.
J&L... Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again next year when you head south again!! or possibly in Europe. :) If it is on a weekend we can go to church again. :) Tailwinds, J&M
Johan and Loes were so nice. They stayed two nights. They know how to maneuver their RV very well (an awesome dutch model--thanks for the tour), are self-sufficient and very nice. They were extremely quiet. They are well-mannered and professional in their communication. I am glad I could host you. You are welcome back anytime! My dog loved Loes so much.
Enjoyed great conversation, good story's, a fabulous Super Bowl and good food. Happy people enjoying the traveling life in the US. Would love to host you anytime, enjoy your journey.
A nice couple from Holland. We had some interesting conversations They only stayed one night but I really enjoyed talking with these guests. Can't wait to get on the road myself.
We have hosted many wonderful Boondockers and I can say without a doubt that Johan and Loes are my favorites. Great conversations and very comfortable to spend time with. Loved having them share some family time with us (soccer game). Definitely looking forward to seeing them again in the future. They are welcome here anytime!
Super nice and friendly couple glad we got to meet them, wish they could have stayed longer but we are leaving on a trip. Maybe will see them again safe travels

We didn't get too much time to visit while they were visiting due to their short stay and my busy schedule at that time, but I very much enjoyed their company. I look forward to seeing them again if they ever get back to Tucson. Safe travels, my friends.
Johan and Loes were excellent guests to have as boondockers. We have been to the Netherlands three times so it very enjoyable to talk to them and share a glass of wine and soft drink. They are very good people to have and were certainly respectful of our property. We look forward to having them stay again.
It was a good time spending 2 nights with Johan and Loes. We had a lot of informative conversations and learned about Holland. Enjoyable couple, you wouldn't be disappointed in having them as a guest.
These folks visited us for 5 days due their coach being repaired. Had a great time, learned much about the Netherlands! Great sense of humor and tolerated my strangeness well! Had dinner together several times and hope they come back some time....
Lovely couple who are quite congenial and pleasant to have as Boondockers. They are very easy to talk with; we enjoyed conversation and dessert with them. They were very quiet (we hardly knew they were there!) and were respectful of our property. They are most welcome any time they wish to return.
They only stayed one night but I really enjoyed talking with these guests. We have been several of the same places and will be in the next few months. They speak very good English and I enjoyed listening to their accents. Nice people!
