We met more than 26 years ago while we were both in training at Lackland AFB. Our children are now adults, so we get to act like kids again! Roam the roads with us as we RV our way around the country!

Question/Comment #4 submitted via YouTube by Sherry Standefer: Don’t know what brand of sewer hose you have, but some have an O ring gasket in the end connection. It may have fallen out and you not noticed…..yes, you can buy replacement gaskets for your sewer hose.

Question/Comment #5 submitted via YouTube by Mary T: I have a question. Do you feel like a fishbowl with the front windows so big? Can people see you inside during the day or are the windows dark enough? How about in the evening when the lights are on?

Question/Comment #6 submitted via Contact page by Gary Corsiglia: Hi! I just purchased a 2019 Little Guy Max Rough Rider – can’t wait to get it on the road. What type of lock do you use to secure the trailer when it is unhitched from your vehicle? I noticed #2178-A on the Proven Industries web site is a square design and sells for $235. Yours appears to be rounded and better design and deterrent.

Question/Comment #7: submitted via Contact page by Teresa Snyder: We have traveled on two very long road trips in the past five years. And spent thousands on rooms and dining out.
We just bought the little guy max in hopes of a lot more such trips that we can afford. I just wanted you to know about a road app We’ve used on both trips that made them much more appealing. Roadside America. It has ventured us in very interesting odd places. And we will continue using it in our new adventures

Some of the stops we have visited:

  1. Big fire hydrant at the Fire Museum in Beaumont TX – stop in and tell WyNell we said hello!
  2. Giant Pistachio in Alamagordo, NM
  3. Stonehenge II in Ingram, TX
  4. King of the Park, a 40ft tall stag made of rusted fenders, license plates etc just outside of San Antonio, TX -True to the Union monument in Comfort, TX
  5. Statue of Liberty Replica in Birmingham, AL
  6. Whistlestop Cafe in Juliette, GA

Another great app to use when on the road is the Historical Markers app! If you have ever driven by those brown “historical marker ahead” signs on the sides of the roads and wondered what it was – wonder no more! This app will locate where you are and show you the markers by you. Click on the pins and you see detailed info on the marker!
