  • I’ve learned a lot about these Dodge Travcos since sharing the 27-footer in Kanab, UT. This 1968-1970 Travco 210 seems to be one of the rarest models to come across. I spotted this tiny tot last year on a southwest road trip and didn’t even think it was a Travco at first. Their styling is unmistakeable - I had just never seen such a short one. I couldn’t get a look at the rear end to check the license plate’s expiration, but I’d assume this rig had been sitting for quite some time due to its location. These seem to hold up VERY well in the desert sun and have quite a following. The early Travcos were available in 21’, 22’, and 27’ configurations. The 27-footers were the most popular and are the most common to come across nowadays. In fact, the shorter models were dropped from the lineup by the mid-‘70s and 29’ and 32’ examples hit the showroom floor shortly thereafter.

  • We chose this rear kitchen 28’ 5th wheel when we were still living in a house and the idea of tiny living seemed very daunting. This rear kitchen layout has a lot of space, and the excess space gave us a familiar comfort.

Our main concerns when we were going tiny... 1️⃣What about all of our stuff? My clothes? My kitchen gear? What if I felt I couldn’t part with a lot of it?

2️⃣ What if we feel cramped and it’s just too small?

3️⃣ I’m not sure I could live without all of the upper cabinet storage we tore out.

What was our realization that answered these questions upon traveling?

We need so much less than this, and this is more than enough stuff and space for us.

Our priorities shifted a bit. I’ll be the first to admit, we did a big modern renovation to help us and others feel at ease with this new and strange lifestyle. “If we make this 14 year old 5th wheel look fresh and modern, maybe we would be judged less harshly and maybe we would feel more comfortable with it ourselves?”. Ego can send you down a negative spiral of doubts.
.
Then we started traveling and seeing the way other full-timers live. It’s amazing how much you can thrive with less. Now that we’ve learned how we want to travel we’ve realized that our travel style is easier much tinier. Now we are itching to do another build. 😉🙃 This year, we will definitely enjoy this spacious home we worked so hard on and take it on as many adventures as possible!

It’s fun to play around with the idea of a (smaller) build in the future. 💰When we are ready for another build, should we sell this trailer or keep it? Tag someone that would want to live in this spacious rig for two! ✨💕

  • We we're hoping to be all moved in and sharing a tour of this tiny space this week but we decided to leave a little early for our South Carolina trip. We spent the whole night before our trip moving everything in but unfortunately there are boxes just stacked all over the place and we have an unorganized disaster to come home to. I promise we'll eventually get our new tiny home home done!

  • Multi-tasking at its finest. 🙌🏼 Murphy loves being held and pretty much all the attention she can get. Sometimes I have to throw her on my hip and keep working...I am a crazy dog lady, and that’s okay. 😂

  • The view from here. What is this life. The yachts music wafts up the hill to my own private dance party surrounded by bananas and happiness. ❤️

  • Who is the most obsessed about the “mummy bus” ? It’s a contest between me and him. I think he wins. I get sick of singing The Wheels On The Bus waaay before he gets sick of hearing it.

  • You are being drawn away from the crowd because there is a wild in you that longs to be set free. Somewhere deep within you is a rhythm of ancient ways that hold the power and magic you need to heal. Rise above who they told you to be, wild one. Remember who you are.🙏🏼✨

  • We’re all moved out of the motorhome! All of our stuff is piled up behind us in the truck. Also, I found these earrings under a box right before we walked out and decided I had less chance of losing them if I just put them on. I wonder what else I might have left? #allmovedout #newfifthwheel #rvlife

  • Ano passado eu atravessei todo o deserto americano enquanto eu vivia num motorhome. Foi com certeza a minha parte preferida da viagem, mas também a mais sofrida. Um calor do inferno de dia, um puta frio a noite. Lembro do dia que dormi no Joshua Tree, acordei morrendo de sede, olhei no celular e a umidade do ar estava em 4% 😰! Tinha a eterna sensação que eu estava o tempo todo respirando areia, rs. É igualmente difícil esquecer o dia que essa foto foi tirada - tinha acabado de chegar em Palm Springs, estava procurando um lugar pra almoçar e achei que ia morrer torrada: fazia 46 graus (e não tinha sombra em lugar nenhum)! Esse ano voltei para uma #deserttour, dessa vez no inverno, e olha, foi bem menos complicado. Me arrependo de alguma coisa? Obviamente não. Mas se vc está pesando em passar um mês cruzando o deserto como eu fiz, melhor ir preparadx 😂.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #travel #california #palmsprings #desert #globetrotter #instago  #instatravelling #instavacation #instapassport #postcardsfromtheworld #traveltheworld #landscapephotography #sabbatical #travelpics  #roadtrip #wanderlust  #travelphoto #traveldeeper #traveladdicts #traveltheworld #worldtraveler #travelgirls  #passionport #usa #rvlife

  • I’ve been making lots of art on this trip. Some good, some bad. And then there are happy surprises, like mixing this banana bunch I painted with gouache in some other time zone with this photo from our beach-front property (rv park) in LA.

  • Day 110: Whitmore Springs CA to Panamint Springs & Death Valley NP 
Hard to leave our gorgeous campsite - headed to Bishop and visited the famous Schats Bakery (we never skip a a bakery 😂). Delicious croissants and stocked up on sourdough. Stopped in Lone Pine to see the Movie Flats and Alabama Hills - the landscape was so neat! Did the möbius arch trail - dogs were wishing their fur was white. Decided to keep going to Death Valley - stopped at a lookout and were lucky enough to see an F18 fly through the canyon! So many people there "birdwatching" and waiting for the planes to come through. Got a campsite at Panamint Springs and then went to go find a waterfall. It was so hot (35 Celsius) but thankfully the trail was mostly in the shade. Back to the campground and gave Max a bath to cool him down before bed. So. Hot. The wind was hot. All night. Death Valley - makes sense.

  • This week we’ve finally had time to work on our RV! In case you missed it, last Wednesday our house went on the market. Within 24 hours we received multiple offers. By Friday, we accepted an offer!!! 🙌🏻 We are in shock with how quickly things are moving along. As long as all goes well, we will be closing on May 20th! 😬
.
.
We started removing fixtures, pulls, blinds/valances, and unwanted furniture a couple of days ago. Today our focus has been on tearing out carpet and vinyl flooring. The process takes time since we don’t have tons of hours to dedicate each day... so the next few weeks will have lots of late nights I’m sure! 😴
.
.
But I feel like when you give your best “yes” that all the work required is worth it! If you feel like your goals and dreams are too big or too crazy, you’re not alone! But that doesn’t mean they are impossible!!! We are proof of that, and hope our story encourages you in yours! ❤️

  • We spent Brian’s Birthday afternoon filming a fun new video. We love looking at RVs, even if we aren’t in the market for a new one, and we were able to check out a bunch today.
.
We have definitely been spoiled by our Grand Design Reflection 312 BHTS - which we ❤️LOVE❤️ - and had a great time checking out a few of Grand Designs other bunkhouse offerings.
.
Keep an eye out for the next episode of the vlog where we share our thoughts on layout, amenities, and the best tow vehicles for each.
