Bigger Adventures, Smaller RV
Dustin and I bought our first RV right after we got married 13 years ago. At the time, we were looking for a way to easily escape and get out into nature, without sacrificing some of the comforts and amenities of home. As newlyweds who were just starting a family business together, our days were long and hard and our schedules were often unpredictable. We wanted to make sure that when we did get a few precious days off, we took full advantage of that time and could hit the road at any moment.
Fast forward a few years and our family business has grown exponentially, with an incredible team in place to help make everything run smoothly. This has allowed Dustin and me to take more RV trips and expand our outdoor hobbies. Living in Colorado, we’ve always loved to hike and camp, but more recently have picked up mountain biking and packrafting. And while our traveling and interests may have grown and expanded over the years, our preferred method of travel has actually simplified. We’ve come to learn that we can still do everything that we want to do, we just don’t need a big RV to do it.
Bring All the Gear
When Dustin and I were first shopping for a new RV in early 2020, we looked at a lot of different units, especially Class B camper vans and small travel trailers. The Wayfarer, a Class C RV, ended up being the perfect model for us—large enough to comfortably fit us (and our four dogs) and all of our gear but small enough to be easily drivable and fit in most places. It has everything we need to create an epic weekend adventure—we can mount our mountain bikes to the back, keep our hiking equipment in the overhead sleeper space and securely store our packrafts and paddles in the waterproof underbelly.
