Killing the Phantom

Killing the Phantom

When we put our trailer to bed for the winter we pull the batteries off the rig and put them on a float charger in the garage.  During the season we leave the batteries installed and just make sure things are turned off.  Imagin our surprise when we came to get the rig one day and the tongue jack wouldn’t move.  In fact, nothing would work and after some quick troubleshooting, I found that we had a dead battery.  I was…

Hello Winnebago!

Hello Winnebago!

After a few good seasons with our Keystone Hideout, we decided it was time to upgrade.   After a bunch of research and dizzying comparisons, we landed on the Winnebago Minnie Plus 27BHSS.   This rig was the exact combination of features and design we were looking for with very few compromises. The flipped floor plan, I call it the “L”, was very attractive to us.  It changed it up enough to make it feel like something totally different.  This floorplan is available from…
