We are Chad & Tara – husband and wife and, as cheesy as it sounds, best friends. (You kind of have to be, in order to live harmoniously in 400sq. ft. full time!) Near the end of 2016, we wanted a change, a new adventure, and thought moving into a new home would be that for us. Until one day, when Chad said “What would you think of selling the house and everything in it, and hitting the road full-time in an RV?”
We are Rae and Jason! We travel the US full time with our doggo, Carmen in a Grand Design fifth wheel. We like to share our lessons learned, RV tips and tricks, and the best places to visit in the US with you!
My name is Nick Troutman, I am a World Champion, professional athlete, husband, father, and whitewater kayaker. I have always loved the Grand Design brand image and dedication to the outdoor lifestyle. As a professional athlete I am on the road up to 10 months a year traveling, competing and exploring with my family. We have used other RV's for the past several seasons, though this year we have partnered with GMC and Grand Design to document our experiences as we travel all over the world in the families pursuit of adventure.
After years lost to the daily grind and countless hours spent apart at work, school, and daycare, we decided to stop watching time pass us by and live our lives together. We're Brian and Erin, and we traded the big house in a quiet neighborhood for a life of exploration in an RV with our three kids and a dog.
We’re Cory and Brooke! Like many of you, we have full-time jobs, a home to take care of, two small children (Townley and Beckett), and a rescue pup (Tallulah). We’d like to inspire you to just get out and go! Follow our adventures as we take a break from the daily grind and explore the Southeast and beyond in our Grand Design Imagine 2800BH.
