Always On Liberty: How We Travel
Since going on the road full-time in 2014, we’ve owned three RVs. Starting with a 2014 Heartland Cyclone fifth wheel toy hauler, we then traded in for our 2016 Heartland Landmark 365 luxury fifith wheel. And, in 2019, we upgraded to our current RV, our Winnebago View 24D Class C Motorhome. Come check out more about them!
Always On Liberty RVs: Our Former RVs
2014 Heartland Cyclone 4100
Before acquiring our Landmark, we owned a 2014 Heartland Cyclone 4100 5th wheel toy hauler. She was 44′ long with an 8′ extension ‘party deck’ (garage ramp that was suspended by cables) off her stern. We purchased our former Cyclone toy hauler to haul our two Harley Davidson Softails in the garage. After a year and a half on the road, we reevaluated our lifestyle, sold our Harleys and traded her in for a full-time luxury fifth wheel (see above Landmark).
2016 Heartland Landmark 365
In December of 2015, we traded in our Cyclone fifth wheel toy hauler for our Heartland Landmark 365, a luxury 5th wheel measuring at 41′ 6″. The “365” indicates that the Landmark is a full-timers’ coach. Our Landmark was an all-electric coach. However, we modified her with a complete solar and energy management package that allowed us to boondock off grid.
We also updated her interior to reflect our personalities in a Key West theme. We removed the aft sofa and replaced it with a large desk table with two small office chairs to make working easier. Check out some of our interior upgrade blog tutorials.
While we absolutely loved our beautiful and spacious Heartland Landmark 365 fifth wheel, we wanted to pick up the pace and explore and experience more adventure on the backroads. Thus, bringing us to trade our Landmark 5th wheel in for our current RV, our Winnebago View Class C motorhome.
Our Tow Vehicle for Fifth Wheels
2014 Dodge Ram 3500 Heavy Duty DRW 4WD
Both of our former fifth wheels were pulled by our 2014 Ram Cummins Diesel “Tradesmen” edition dual rear wheel with 4-wheel drive capability. We named Captain America because he’s strong, sturdy and was our super hero on the road. We logged 125,000 miles on him.
Our Ram’s towing capacity rates at 30,000 pounds. He was equipped with a 24,000 pound CURT Q24 hitch system. We also self-installed a 35 gallon auxiliary diesel fuel tank in the truck bed to allow us longer distances between fuel stations.
Always On Liberty RVs: Our Current RV
2019 Winnebago. View 24D
Our current RV is a Winnebago View, a small Class C motorhome. As Dan puts it, “our View is like a van on steroids”. Measuring 25′ 5″ from stem to stern with one slideout, we live full-time in approximately 200 square feet with our two Maine Coon cats, Krissie and Kandi.
We live the tiny lifestyle…really…really…TINY.

Our Toad for our Winnebago View
2010 Jeep JK
In 2020, we decided to add a toad; our 2010 Jeep JK series to be our adventure vehicle. It carries everything we need to explore beyond our RV’s capabilities. We keep our two Perception Kayaks and our two Boogie Bikes locked on the back when we’re not using them. Our Jeep is towed using our CURT Rambler tow bar from our Winnebago View.
So, that’s how we roll! Those are the Always On Liberty RVs and adventure vehicles we travel with. We love to travel and explore America from the backroads to the byways. Who knows how long we’ll RV or if we go for more gusto in the future. This is how we enjoy our journey, outdoor adventures and travel destinations.
