Expedition or Luxury; traveling options?

When we set out on this wonderful journey of living life on the road, we had dreamed of going in style and comfort with a Diesel Pusher.  However, we also enjoy the freedom of going anywhere – after all we love the backcountry spots.

We decided to allow ourselves some extra time and depart in the motorhome we already owed – 29’ Class C Gulfstream Limited.  Plus, money in the bank is always a nice thing – don’t you agree!?!   

Awe, the backcountry it’s much more interesting then blacktop, but that’s just not possible in a Diesel Pusher. So which way do we go??? 


We ponder with the ideal of storing our belongings and get a wagon style land cruiser, set it up to go expedition style – it’s cheaper on fuel plus able to see something different every day.  Now, you are really talking close courts (and we thought 29’ was too small, ha ha) – you really must have a great relationship with your partner =)

So what to do…. Dilemma, Dilemma, Dilemma

Why couldn’t we have the best of both worlds?  Comfort and style plus enjoy our adventures side. 

As of June 20th; the decision was made and the results are….

2006 Newmar Kountry Star 39' diesel pusher with 3 slides, with outside tv plus a refrigertor/freezer. 

Didn't take long for the sign to go in the window.
TVs definitely need to be replaced.

Bed makes into a nice air bed
Recliner on the left.  We had the 3 drawers under stove removed and added an oven
King size bed - WOW that's a lot of room

Outside TV - ready for some football!

Outside refrigator or freezer
Slides are in and ready to roll down the road

After all we already have an off-road vehicle!  Now all we need to do is get a rack made for the top of the cruiser, head back to Oklahoma and gather our camping gear that was left behind and we are all set.  Decided it would be nice to have our comfort and then just take short expedition trips from base camp.

Life is great…  What more could we ask for!!!

Safe travels =))
