I have loved the RV lifestyle since I was a kid and bought my first RV - a Tonka Winnebago

When we would go to the Pomona Fair when I was a kid others would be interested in the booths, the rides or the farm animals. Me - I was accosting the RV people going in and out of RVs and checking out all the different trends and designs.

I even fancied myself an RV designer and drew lots and lots of various RVs. I also wanted to be a car designer but I would have settled for RV designs.

Today, in addition to this blog, I work at an RV dealership in Northern California - Redwood Empire RVs. I get to surround myself with RVs all day long and help people embark on their journey of being a StressLess Camper!
