Laundry Sucks………or is that soaks?

I hate public laundromats. I really do, they suck.  Even some of the campgrounds have lousy laundromats. Sadly, it is what it is when you go camping/RVing, but………..  I found a product called Soak.  At first, I thought this is another gimmick product out there.  I purchased a small…

Hooking Up – How we hook up our Airstream Basecamp

Adding A Dyson Vacuum To Our Airstream Basecamp – We Made Another Change

What do camping, hiking, biking, and an Airstream all have in common?  Dirt!!! Who knew that whenever you walk into your trailer you track in dirt. You could just leave your shoes in the vestibule, sure if you put the side tent up. But…

How We Clean Our Firedisc

Last week we showed how cooking with the Firedisc if different from using a typical BBQ; cleaning it is different too.  We are all used to pulling the food off our grill and cranking up the heat to burn off the leav’ns before hitting…

Why Get An Airstream Basecamp???

Why did we switch from an International Serenity 30W to a Basecamp. We have had many people ask us why we switched from the Serenity to the Basecamp. In just a few sentences We’ll try to give you the best answer we possibly can….

Choosing A Brake Controller

Charlene gave me the task of finding the right brake controller for our new truck and Airstream.  After looking at various Brake Controllers from companies like Tekonsha, Draw-Tite, and Hopkins I decided to go with the Autowbrake system for the 2019 Honda Ridgeline and…

Bye-Bye Alice the Airstream

Colonial Airstream came this past Wednesday to pick up Alice.  It was hard to see her go.  She has been our home for two years.  She has taken us to incredible places and on some great adventures.  She had many upgrades and modifications to her.  She was well used…
