Our First Long Camper Van Trip

Lynn and I bought our ‘19 59K to be more nimble in our travels. We had a long trip up the east coast of US planned for July and did not want to make that trip with our 5th wheel. We could have but we caught the camper van bug and wanted the flexibility of staying in national parks and other boondocking locations. We wanted to be able to park in great spots like Cadillac Mountain. We wanted our sweet pup dog with us as we traveled to locations,even if she could not go on the hikes or adventures.

With the 59K we got all of that and more. We just completed a 3,729 mile trip from NC to ME and back. The Travato did great on gas, great on comfort and great on convenience. In short we loved it and both of us agree it was the single best decision we’ve made in our 10-year journey of seeing North America in an RV.

Here’s the first episode of that journey for us as we drive in the the rain from NC to the Shenandoah National Park for our first boondocking experience in an NP. Many of you have been further than us and stayed out longer than we did on this trip. I’d love to hear your feelings about how your T fit your needs and if you see anything we should have done differently please let us know.
