Living in a van down by the river is a figurative expression meaning being a complete failure at life, a drain on society. However, nothing could be further than the truth for many, including us, who choose to live minimally while enjoying freedom and travel. So, fasten your seatbelts!

But then, we were faced with a slew of questions that we felt we owed you, our readers and followers why we downsized…significantly.

When we bought our 5th wheel and our 2014 Ram 3500 dually tow vehicle we needed a reliable and easy-to-operate hitch system to tow our RV down the roadways together safely. After several hours of research, we chose is the Curt Q24 fifth wheel hitch (#16245) manufactured by Curt Manufacturing.
