Shakedown of Our Minnie Plus

Shakedown of Our Minnie Plus

This last weekend we spent our first night in our Winnebago Minnie Plus 27BHSS.  It is highly advised that for your first adventure in a new RV that you driveway camp or head to a campground that is not very far from home.  This first adventure is known as a shakedown trip and it intended for you to find things that are not working properly.  For our Shakeout, we headed to Jordanelle State Park.  Its a campground that we are…

First Full Season in Our Keystone Hideout

First Full Season in Our Keystone Hideout

We purchased our Keystone Hideout in late 2015, so this was the first full year of camping in it.  Now having a camping year and 36 nights in the Hideout, we felt it was time to reflect back on our purchase and look at some of the positives and negatives. In our post “Welcome to Our Secret Hideout” we outlined some of the main reasons we wanted to upgrade.  The first of those was having dedicated beds.  Our previous trailer…
