Todd and Marcia Schabel, along with their two mini goldendoodles Malai and Aspen, are traveling the country full-time in their Crossroads Sunset trailer. Todd paints landscape portraits as they travel, while Marcia is a designer and marketer working remotely from the RV. Their dream is to one day own a farm back in Wisconsin.
What made you decide to buy an RV?
Ultimately, we wanted to travel more sustainably. We didn’t want to hop around from hotel to hotel trying to find a place to stay while we were on the road. We wanted to travel with our home. Having the RV allows us to be self-sufficient and go almost anywhere. A lot of farms don’t have guest houses, but most have spots on their property where we can boondock or moochdock. Plus, being out in our RV doesn’t disrupt the farm owner’s day-to-day. Another important reason for the RV is Todd’s art supplies. As a traveling painter, we travel with a lot of art supplies and need a spot that he can fully dedicate to his work.
