Winter Getaway- trips of 14+ days discounted by 25%!Blanche is a Golden Girl, with sass and spirit! She's petite, at 24 feet long, which means she can camp in National Parks (where restrictions on bigger rigs exist), take winding mountain roads, and explore in cities (though we'd caution against Boston's low bridges!).We are pampered campers, and Blanche caters to our needs. Automatic leveling jacks, her own wifi, a fridge and freezer, AC/heat, instant hot water, a pristine (and strong!) shower, outdoor shower for muddy boots and puppy paws, satellite radio, gas stove, oven, microwave, automatic awning, and two beds with memory foam toppers are just some of the comforts Blanche has to offer.Built on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis with Winnebago's best-in-class house features, we went "whole hog" when we bought Blanche. She's our personal rig, we baby her, and it shows.If you're looking for the ultimate road trip, and want a cushy hotel-on-wheels to see spectacular mountains and lakes, go to the game, head to Disney, or just ramble along and see where the road takes you, Blanche is a wonderful rig who will take you in style. But don't let us limit your imagination - Blanche has been to almost every US state, and we just recently relocated from California to Georgia. Get out there and explore!We'll be happy to help you coordinate your trip, offer tips and tricks, and cheer for you as you embark on your great American Road Trip.Lgbtqia+ safe space, stickers and high-fives to prove it. We do have rainbow flags and solidarity stickers for POC & Indigenous Rights on Blanche (she's our personal rig).Festivals are ok, but require pre-approval. Absolutely no Burning Man. Violation of this rule will result in a fine.May the road be good to you. Open road, open mind, open hearts.If you want a more permanent camping experience, Blanche is for Sale, available for purchase.What's included- Wifi
- SiriusXM Satelite Radio
- DVD Player, TV
- Fresh Linens
- 4 Adult Camping Chairs

- Camp table (for cooking prep)
- Utensils, cookware, and cooking utensils

RecommendationsWe've been everywhere, man - just ask! Blanche is just 24 feet long and drives like a truck - that means she can navigate tricky roads, and fits into National Parks where bigger rigs aren't allowed.But don't limit your imagination - Blanche has been to most of the "lower 48." Last year alone, our epic road trip included:12,021 miles
24 National Parks
15 junior ranger programs completed (this is a must-do if you have kids!)
34 states + DC

Hi!
My husband, Andrew, and our 4 children love to take our RV, Blanche, out on the road every chance we get. We've traveled to most US states, over 30 National Parks, and our favorite places to camp have been off-grid, boondocking in wild places. We take our dogs, Scout and Dolly, with us whenever we can. See you on the road!

Blanche was an awesome RV, well maintained and well equipped. The vehicle itself is pretty modern, the bed was comfortable for 2 adults and the shower was clean and hot! Kristen was a very helpful, accommodating and communicative host and did her best to walk us thru troubleshooting and was flexible with pickup and drop off. This was our first RV trip and we'll definitely be doing more!

We had a delightful experience with Blanche on a 700 mile roundtrip to Jekyll Island, GA. Blanche was the perfect size...not too small...but not too big for first-time RV'ers. Definitely a nice rig in which to spend some relaxing days in the campground!

Kristen is amazing and extremely helpful from booking to pick up. Unfortunately there was an unseen issue and we had to find a backup - even though it was newer with two slides it was not as usable or with as much storage as Blanche. Kristen provided lots of information as the trip approached and is a superstar host to rent from. Truly wonderful folks with an RV to match with updated entertainment unit and TV plus many tools on board to help with nearly any scenario.

We had a fun time RVing for the first time. Kristen was super generous with pickup and drop off. She also spent quite a bit of time orienting us with the RV. There was plenty of space for our family. This is definitely a really unique RV with lot of character and personal touches. We are super grateful that we got to make some amazing memories in this RV.

Kristen’s answer

THANK YOU, Anil! If all renters were as kind and thoughtful as you, we'd be the happiest of campers! Thank you for the opportunity to meet you. May you have many adventures in your future. Hugs to the birthday boy!

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
A.
Yep! And we'll give you a whole book of information, lovingly crafted through our travels.

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
A.
Very simply. Here's a handy video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RRXgWyIOX0

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
Just send us a message and we'll see how we can help out. We live very close to Sandy Springs, GA, and can arrange to meet you either at our home, or at the storage facility in Marietta where we keep Blanche when she's not on the road. We work from home, so we can do our best to work around your schedule. We do ask that you help us by not scheduling pick up and drop off during school drop offs in the mornings (between 7am and 8:30am). The one thing we can't be flexible about is our kiddos.
