    TRAVELING DURING COVID-19
    Being an RVer right now is a mixed bag, right?On the one hand we have the ability to get away from cities and crowds and quarantine in nature, many RVers say “we are built for this”. But on the other hand established places to camp are closed and small communities are not taking well to outsiders.I wanted to share how I’ve been dealing with being a full time RVer during this crazy time. When all this began I was still traveling in the Baja. There were no known cases so we felt safe and we just...

    We are all on the road for different reasons, some of us are on vacation, some retired, some working still….and with that we all have different budgets, BUT the one thing we all have in common is the need to find places to lay our heads at night!

When I first hit the road I looked at my rent and figured out what I pay per day to live in my apartment in Boulder, CO and used that as a sorta guideline,...

    My Favorite Camping Spot
     We all love to camp for different reasons; the great outdoors, the food, or a crackling fire but the location is always one of the reasons we all pack up the car or RV and go camping. For Tough Tops 10 years in business we posed the question for our sweepstakes “Where is your favorite camping spot?”   I starting thinking about this and realized this is a tough question!
