Fleetwood has partnered with Jason and Nikki Wynn, of Gone with the Wynns. The Wynn’s maintain GoneWithTheWynns.com where they record their adventures, discoveries, helpful information and videos from the road. They will be traveling the country and even will be joining us for the 6th Annual Fleetwood RV National Rally in their 2014 Excursion 33D.
Meet Roy the RV - Our New Home On Wheels
Leaving their professional careers in Dallas, Texas, the Wynns decided to pursue a life of adventure on the road and saw no better way to do it than in an RV. “We love the idea of having all of the comforts of home while traveling, and we hate the hassle of having to book flights and hotels and live by a defined schedule,” stated Jason.
Throughout their adventures, the Wynns will be featuring the 2014 Excursion 33D in videos, on their website, on social media sites and more. “The Wynns have a loyal following of fellow RVers who share their sense of adventure and love of life on the road,” states John Draheim, President of Fleetwood and CEO of Allied Recreation Group. “They’re a perfect fit for the Fleetwood brand and we look forward to seeing them showcase the Excursion along their adventures.”
Break out of the Ordinary: Take your RV on a Winter Adventure
Over the past few years of RVing we’ve done winter trips to the desert and loved it…but there’s something exciting about changing the status quo and heading to the mountains for a real winter RV adventure! Sure there’s a little extra preparation but the fresh powder and campground camaraderie makes it totally worth it.
If you’re wondering what makes anyone want to bundle up and drive the RV into the freezing temperatures here are some of our favorite winter adventures.
Breckenridge, Colorado – Beautiful scenery and a world class Ski resort make this small town the perfect place to call home during the winter. Park the RV at the Tiger Run Resort campground and the entire town is accessible by a free bus so you don’t even need a tow car! Some of our favorite times to visit include the Ullr Fest in January and the Snow Sculpture Competition in February.
Yellowstone National Park – Skip the crowds and head to this pristine wilderness as the snow begins to fall. Brave the cold nights and you’ll be rewarded with one-on-one meetings with the wildlife. If you’re really adventurous head south a few miles and go ice climb the Grand Tetons!
Grand Canyon National Park – Yes it snows in Arizona, and we had no clue! On this unexpected adventure we were rewarded with a most memorable hike on the Bright Angel Trail: Freezing temps with snow at the top of the trail followed by warm (almost hot) sunny skies at the end of the trail some 4380 feet lower elevation! And there is no better way to finish off the day than at the historic El Tovar Lodge curled up by the fire with a Hot Toddy in hand.
Now there is one epic winter adventure that we haven’t tried yet: Alaska! Oh well, there’s always next year. Who wants to caravan with us?!?
