The Right Stuff: Little Guy Max has just what we need to hit the open road

Russ and I want to explore. We want to travel. We don’t want to have to keep staying in hotels everywhere we go. Having comfortable, familiar surroundings around us and the ability to take our dogs is a must. Solution? Buy an RV!

We have now been considering purchasing an RV for several months. Having never owned one before and a bit overwhelmed with the options in today’s market, it seemed like we were set on something different every week. Used or new? Class A, B, B-plus, C, travel trailer, 5th wheel or truck camper? There are so many great choices out there. We decided to start by thinking about what would truly fit our lifestyle and budget the best. We really liked the Class B vans and the ability to travel easily in more urban areas if needed and not having to deal with a tow behind vehicle, but then on one of our many trips (and I mean many) to local dealers, we came across the Little Guy Max.

Continuing my behavior as an obsessive Googler, I scoured the internet for more information. 2018 is the first year this model is available so the information available was somewhat limited. I did find two videos extremely helpful. The first is this walk-thru with Chris Baum from Liberty Outdoors. Chris does a great job of highlighting all of the specs and features, both inside and out. Check out the video below:

The second is from Paul the Air Force Guy, who taped this on a trip to the factory where the Little Guys are manufactured. This video will show you each and every step involved in the assembly process:

As you can see, a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into this unit. I am still obsessing about all of the windows…..

We absolutely fell in love with the Little Guy Max Rough Rider and decided this was the one for us. Sometimes when you step into an RV, it just feels right and this feels like home. So after 5 months of dreaming, looking, researching and negotiating, we are the very proud owners of our own Little Guy Max!
