After Rachel retired in 2016 we purchased an RV to travel around the US, visiting national and state parks and friends & family along the way.
It’s been a learning curve, but the challenge has been fun & educational. We look forward to meeting new folks and making friends along our journey.

Two mixed breed dogs, 6yr old brothers, 45-48lbs, long torsos, short legs, curled tails and brindle mix.
Playful, friendly, love to explore, and good travelers. We don’t take them with us all the time.

"Matilda" is a 2017 Class C Winnebago Trend 23L RV on a Dodge Ram Promaster chassis. There are no slide outs, and we're less than 8' wide. The height, including antennas, is 10'6". We can fit into a regular parking space with 2-3 feet of overhang. (Unless we're able to back in over a low curb.) She handles easily with a tight turning radius and is easy to park and backup, We added Sumo Springs and take her off road on occasion. The inside feels larger with the sky light, and 6 can sit comfortably around the table with an extension that turns out from under the end. The front cab chairs turn around to join the L-shaped dinette booths.
