Venturing Into the Great Outdoors in Comfort and Style
Meet Brian and Lisa, a dynamic Pennsylvanian duo whose life took an exciting turn when they decided to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. Their journey began with a profound appreciation for the Great Outdoors and a desire to explore the world on their own terms, enjoying the tremendous beauty of nature with the comfort of an exquisite resort hotel.
“As much as I love the Great Outdoors, I’m not an outdoorsman,” said Brian. “I’m not a huge camper-guy. I don’t like bugs and bumpy bedrolls, but there are some majestic places in this country I want to see.”
To make this dream a reality, they invested in a 2023 Living Vehicle, a luxurious off-grid mobile RV that offers access into this magnificent country with all the privacy of an RV, and the comforts of a 5-star hotel. Brian and Lisa's story is a testament to the freedom of the open road and the joys of embracing an off-grid lifestyle.
Although Brian and Lisa can and do take advantage of the option to have their LV transported to amazing outdoor locations and set up for them. “It’s so cool to have my home placed for me next to a backcountry stream, then Lisa and I can drive or fly out, show up and we get to hike, fish, mountain bike, and explore.”
After years of dreaming about traveling the country – without the hassles and discomforts of hauling an RV or staying in a tent – we decided to embrace the outdoor lifestyle because of Living Vehicle,” said Brian. “We simply wouldn’t do it any other way.”
Brian and Lisa are both nature enthusiasts and outdoor lovers, determined to explore the breathtaking landscapes of North America at their own pace and in their own way, but the way most outdoorsmen and women go about it isn’t for them. “We needed a quality home environment that could keep up with our adventurous spirits, without all the challenges and discomforts of camping.
“When it comes right down to it, we prefer staying at a Four Seasons hotel over camping, but we also want the peace and quiet that comes with boondocking,” he added. “Camping next to a bunch of other campers who might be partying late into the night or playing loud music doesn’t work for us,” he added. “Frankly, I’m not crazing about staying in hotels, either, because I love staying in my own place. Fortunately, we’ve created this type of experience with the Living Vehicle.”
Their Dream Home on Wheels: The 2023 Living Vehicle
“The 2023 Living Vehicle is our ultimate choice for this luxurious lifestyle,” adds Lisa. Here are some of their favorite features of their remarkable home on wheels:
“One of the standout features of our Living Vehicle is its ability to run off the grid, said Brian. “Whether we're parked in an isolated forest or a serene desert, we can power our off-grid home using solar panels and batteries, reducing our environmental footprint and allowing us to truly disconnect from the world.”
Convenient Drop-off & Pick-up
“I don’t have the time to run my LV out to Colorado or Wyoming,” he added. “So your shipper, Josh, comes out and picks it up from my place in Pennsylvania and drops it off for me, say, on a spot in the Continental Divide. We show up with our boys and that night we’re sitting by a campfire, making smores, and drinking a delicious bottle of wine with my wife, and I say to myself, ‘How can it get better than this?’”
Dual Inverters for Seamless Operation
The Living Vehicle comes equipped with two inverters. One inverter is dedicated solely to the refrigerator, ensuring that their perishables stay fresh while minimizing energy usage. The other inverter powers the rest of their home, providing them with the convenience of running appliances like a microwave without the need for a generator.
Connectivity on the Go
While they relish the solitude of the Great Outdoors, Brian and Lisa also appreciate staying connected. Their Living Vehicle features a Wi-Fi ranger that pulls in Wi-Fi signals from a distance, ensuring they can stay in touch with loved ones and access essential online resources even in remote locations.
Storage was a priority for Brian and Lisa, and the Living Vehicle doesn't disappoint. Lisa loves the “Spacious pantry, wardrobe, and hidden storage compartments throughout. We can easily carry all the gear and clothing needed for our adventures.”
What truly sets Brian and Lisa apart is their story and how they've incorporated their love for travel into every aspect of their lives. Their passion for living a realistic off-grid experience with the security of a traditional home was paramount. “We’ve owned several large boats, so we get it,” said Brian. “Redundacy systems for the essential components, such as heat, water, and power source, is something we value tremendously. We’re not interested in turning our dream into a nightmare just because you run out of propane.”
A Nomadic Love Story
Brian and Lisa's journey isn't just about exploration; it's also a testament to their love story. “The Living Vehicle provides us with the freedom to strengthen our bond as we navigate new landscapes and challenges together.”
The Joy of Exploration
The couple takes full advantage of the Living Vehicle's off-road capabilities, ensuring they can explore even the most remote and rugged locations. Their adventures have led to discovering hidden gems, from secluded lakeside campsites to breathtaking mountain vistas.
A Sense of Community
Brian and Lisa have also found connectedness for each other and their sons. “We often share stories and experiences around campfires, forging memories that make our lives even more rewarding,” added Lisa.
“The World is a Canvas Waiting to be Painted”
Brian and Lisa's story is a testament to the power of following one's dreams and living life on their own terms. “Our LV has provided us with the comforts of home,” added Brian. “It’s our personal land yacht for a remarkable journey of exploration and self-discovery.”
As they continue to venture out into the secret spots and unique magnificence of North America, they remind us all that the Great Outdoors is a place where dreams come alive, and the world is a canvas waiting to be painted with the brushstrokes of adventure. Their story inspires us to consider what it truly means to live life to the fullest, embracing the beauty of the unknown and the freedom of the nomadic lifestyle.
