Episode 1: Bill & Nancy’s Flagstaff Superlite 529 RLKS Fifth Wheel

Bill and Nancy are at a transitional phase in their RVing journey, as their older daughter is in college and their younger daughter is still in high school. Since the girls are not traveling with them on every trip, Bill and Nancy wanted a great “couple’s camper” with some transformable space for the kids when they do tag along.

The family’s new Flagstaff Superlite 529 RLKS has a huge living space, with two opposing slides and two sofas that convert to beds. It has functioned just as they imagined, with plenty of room for the girls to travel with them on occasion and no wasted space when they don’t.

The heart of this fifth wheel is the huge, gorgeous kitchen. Bill and Nancy loved the large pantry, so they can pack along the groceries they need. They also appreciate the open and airy bedroom design and some of the on-trend safety features of this trailer. Click below to see what else they loved!

Episode 2: Diane’s Little Guy Max

Diane is an adventurous solo traveler, and her first trailer is the retro-inspired Little Guy Max. This small teardrop is perfect for weekends away with friends, and epic road trips across the country. Diane especially loves the easy towability. She hardly feels the Little Guy Max behind her SUV.

Another feature Diane loves is the solar setup. It’s just enough to charge her battery while her trailer is stored, and she can run things off the USB outlets inside. This Little Guy Max is ready to go off-grid.

Inside the Little Guy Max, Diane appreciates the residential feel, the surprising amount of storage, and the kitchen space. When she bought her small teardrop, she wasn’t sure she would like the wet bath, but it hasn’t been a problem at all—in fact, she loves it now. Plus, having less space taken up by a bathroom leaves more room for a dinette, which converts to a guest bed. Click below to take a tour of Diane's Little Guy Max.

Episode 3: Ellen’s Airstream Globetrotter 27FB

Ellen has the best of both worlds in her RVing life. She has a beautiful seasonal space, where she parks her Airstream Globetrotter 27FB; plus, she also goes out on frequent road trips all across the country with her husband.

Ellen finds herself drawn outside, so she appreciates the Globetrotter’s large awning. Another outdoor feature she appreciates is the black tank flush. It took her over a year of owning the trailer before she started using this, and now, she can’t imagine traveling without it.

Even though Ellen loves the outdoors, she also loves the interior of her trailer, which makes her feel connected to nature thanks to the huge windows. Plus, the functional design makes it super easy and wonderful to live, cook, pack, and sleep in this RV. Ellen even brags about the extra comfortable mattress. Go inside Ellen’s beautiful Airstream, and find out why she named it “Frida.”

Episode 4: Shire and Dave’s Jayco Jay Feather X213

Next, it’s time to take a look at a great family rig. Shire and Dave travel with their two young boys, which made the unique floorplan of the Jayco Jay Feather X213 especially appealing. This 24-foot rig offers easy towability, good gas mileage, and plenty of room inside for everyone. Plus, the long awning extends the living space outside.

One special feature Shire and David especially love is the rear-side gear door, which opens to a storage bay created by flipping up the bottom bunk. Speaking of bunks, these are extra wide, which provides a great sleeping space for teens, adults, or multiple kids.

The unique slide-out king bed at the back of this travel trailer is also extra-large and flanked by side windows, which provide a great cross breeze. The main living space has a couch and dinette, which also convert to beds. Click here to check out the tour of this family-friendly rig.

Episode 5: Don’s Tiffin Allegro Red 38KA

First up, we headed to a marina to check out Don’s Tiffin Allegro Red 38KA Class A diesel pusher. Don loves to take “forced family time” with his wife and kids. If your family includes working parents and tweens or teens who are involved in sports and extracurricular activities, you know how hard it can be to find downtime in everyone’s busy schedules. Don’s Class A has ample space to bring everyone together.

What does Don love about his Tiffin? The rear engine diesel is quieter and provides more torque than a gas model. This Class A also has plenty of room for family, friends, and pets, with bed space for everyone, expandable kitchen counters, a washer and dryer, and two bathrooms. Don also appreciates the generous storage found inside and outside of the rig. Plus, the touch screen panel controls everything, and we mean everything, in this motorcoach. Click below to take a tour of Don’s Tiffin.

Episode 6: Drew’s Rockwood Geo Pro G19FBS

Good things don’t necessarily have to come in big packages. Drew and his wife wanted a couple’s trailer that would be easy to tow for their retirement journeys. They plan to tour the country, visit national parks, and do some boondocking. The nimble Rockwood Geo Pro G19FBS perfectly fits the bill!

Drew loves some of the exterior features on his Geo Pro. The trailer’s camp cooking setup is one of his favorite aspects, with a removable griddle that he also uses at home. The awning offers great protection from the sun, rain, and wind. Drew added the off-road package, which provides higher ground clearance and larger tires. He also invested in a Go Power! solar setup, so he can use many of his RV’s features, even when he doesn’t have an electric hookup. Click below to hear more about the features that will be handy for boondocking.

Episode 7: Scott’s Thor Freedom Elite 30 FE

Now, it’s time to take a look at a Class C. Scott has owned his Thor Freedom Elite 30 FE for about a year, and he’s already putting it to good use. He grew up camping in a pop-up and now takes his own family camping.

The first thing Scott loves about this motorhome is how well it fits in his driveway, which is super convenient for packing, especially since he has a 30-amp electrical hookup. The size is also great for driving. Plus, this Class C is super easy to set up.

Scott’s family loves many aspects of this rig, starting with the outdoor entertainment area, complete with television and awning. Inside, the bunk beds and cab-over bunk provide separate sleeping spaces for his three kids, and there’s plenty of room to take friends and family along. The bathroom and storage also do not disappoint. Click below to hear more about Scott’s motorhome.

Episode 8: Karen’s Grand Design Reflection 28BH

Sometimes RVing is all about traveling and road-tripping. Other times, RVing is about enjoying time away from home, without going far. Karen and her husband have a seasonal site, where their rig is parked all year long. After work on Fridays, they can hop in their car and be at camp in an hour, without the fuss of towing and setting up their RV. Plus, when they do want to venture out, they still can.

Karen and Bill absolutely love their Grand Design Reflection 28BH fifth wheel. First, the auto-leveling system can handle even the trickiest of spots in minutes. The family also loves their extra-large awning and the gracious number of windows, both of which connect the indoors to the outdoors.

Inside, the kitchen is the star of the show because of the generous prep space, saving the family the expense of eating out. Click below to see what other features Karen loves.
