We call her “The Rambling Rose”

The Rambling Rose is a 1998 Beaver Marque. We brought her at the end of 2006 knowing our Airstream travel trailer would be too small for the four of us to spend five to six months traveling in every year. So after we retired in August 2006 we headed to Oregon to look for our Beaver and we found her!

 The Rambling Rose is an oldie, but a goodie! In her day she was top of the line with her beautiful cherry cabinets and fancy artistic exterior graphics. We only have one big slide-out, but it seems to work for us. We have plenty of storage, a huge bathroom and our bed runs front to back (not side to side) giving us plenty room. I can’t believe she will be fifteen years old!

Over the past seven years we have had a few minor maintenance items to take care of, but over all she is doing great.! However, it might be time to replace our shades and the carpet! What do you think hubby? Our tires are five years old and will be replaced this year (2013) before we head out again.

We enjoy our travels immensely. We tend to travel in the winter months to escape the cold and snow in Colorado heading south to warm and sunny places. We enjoy county, state and national parks and will travel out of our way to stay in one of these parks, where we can enjoy hiking, kayaking, biking and if lucky the peace and quite that nature offers.

Next summer we want to travel northwest to Oregon with a stop in Glaser National Park. We are both looking forward to enjoying a few months away during the summer and spending time on the coast. These plans might alter our winter travel schedule a bit causing us to stay in the West.

There is so much to see in our beautiful country and we are thankful that we have our motorhome to travel around in.

Three Rivers State Park was probably the most rugged state park we have stayed in, but the lake views, hiking trails and birding made it worth while.
