Practice makes perfect?

Russ and I thought we would take a quick trip to get in more practice with our hitching & set up “skills”.  This was only our second outing in our Little Guy Max travel trailer so it is still relatively new to us. Which was quickly apparent ….

If you need a place to rest for a bit and you are traveling through the El Paso, TX area, this will fit the bill. Basically, it’s a gravel parking lot with full 30/50 hookups as well as a few tent sites where you will find plenty of space, lots of pull-thru spots and the mountains in the distance make up a bit for the noise from the freeway.

There is a trailer on site which houses two private restroom/showers as well as 4 washing machines and 4 dryers. Fees to wash are $1.50 per load and to dry are $0.25 per load.

Look for the giant dog bone to head over to the dog park and children’s play area. Each section is provided with a picnic table and an awning cover. The dog park was well stocked with doggie bags and a trash can to dispose of any waste.

Quick facts:

ADDRESS:  901 S Leisure Fun Road, Anthony, TX

AVAILABILITY: Open year-round

COST: Fee was $40/night for a pull-thru site with full hook-ups

This is a KOA property and as Russ mentioned in the video, there was thankfully a Camping World adjacent to the campground, so if you forget anything (like we did!) they have got you covered.

Even though Russ tried to pass the blame for his forgetfulness and I made a mess in the kitchen (make sure to watch the video above!), it was still fun to get away for a night. Maybe next time we will remember everything!

Tour of our Little Guy Max

In the short time we have owned our Little Guy Max, we have already had our fair share of questions and curious looks from strangers. We have put together this video tour to show you what the camper looks like inside and out along with pointing out some of the highlights.

When you step inside, the first thing you will notice is the windows. The windows make the interior feel so much bigger than other RVs of this size. The light maple hardwood cabinetry is really a nice touch and for something that we plan to have for a long time, I feel these will stand the test of time. The cabinets are deep. For people debating between the Little Guy Max and the T@B 400, I would say you definitely get more storage space in the Little Guy Max.

One thing we didn’t go into on the video is the King Jack Directional Over-the Air Antenna. We are very surprised with the amount of channels we are able to pick up. We were in the middle of nowhere and it picked up 15 channels. This makes for a nice option when you are in a location without cable hookups. As it rained heavily on the first morning of our trip, it was nice to sit at the table, sip our coffees and get our dose of Good Morning America.

We briefly mentioned that our RV has a 100 Watt power output solar panel. We have found that this is enough to run the lights, water pump, and radio. It is our understanding the 2019 models offer a 200 Watt solar panel option.

One of the upgrade options is the Rough Rider package (which is what you see in our video). The Rough Rider upgrade consists of :

  • 15″ Off-Road Tires & Wheels
  • 3.5″ Axle Riser for Added Clearance

The added height just makes us feel a little better when attacking some of the bumpy roads and terrain.
