For whatever reason my dad was super into RV-ing and my mom just followed along as his co-pilot . She eventually got a part time job cleaning up rental motorhomes at a local RV place ( when i was in highschool and could take a little time off as full time mom / house wife ) and we had an inside connection to lightly used rigs at a great price . I remember 4 pretty clearly over the years of my adolescence , but there may be have been more that I can't remember off the top of my head . I just remember seeing most of the country through the window of the cab over bed at 60 mph .
I couldn't shake it as I got older , I love camping . Amy & I did our share of tent camping and had lots of fun roughing it , but with a little son in the mix now , we decided to step it up a notch and hook up a sweet rig for family fun & camping outings . I need a little dirt bike of course now so we can cruise around the campsite , and I need to whip up a bicycle rack for the back bumper , but we already took it out for a quick weekend and it performed flawlessly .
Vaughn happens to love camping and I think we're going to be having lots & lots of wilderness adventures in the mountains , or at the beaches near you . It's a relatively inexpensive way to have a busy weekend away from the X-Box or Play Station and get out in the grass & dirt and have a good time turning over rocks to see what's underneath .
Getting back to nature man , maybe grow out my hair . . . maybe not .
It's a 1981 Lazy Daze on an 18 foot Chevy chassis . 350 / 350 combo with low miles and all the systems work well ( or at least well enough for me ) . No leaks no holes or broken shit anywhere . It needs some curtains and maybe a little tlc in the carpet area , but it's solid and ready to go !
Here's Amy & Vaughn testing out the relaxabillity quotient of the new rig . She says it passed with flying colours .
