our home on wheels for Italy


Living out of suitcases from one accommodation to the next is NOT our preferred mode of travel.  To be perfectly honest, we find it exhausting.  We much prefer to travel with our home and over the past 12 years we’ve spent as much time exploring the world by land yacht as we have by sea.

But we have never attempted a trip of this magnitude before.  Not because of the distance or the terrain but because of the people we’re attempting to do the trip with.  Tuscany is a dream we honestly didn’t think would ever happen.  But every once in a while, the stars align, and seemingly, things just fall into place.

Taking on Italy in our typical Wynn fashion will be a challenge.  Because we are so used to traveling on our own, with no set schedule or mission other than to gain a deeper understanding of the world around us.  It’s easy with just the two of us to let our curiosity set the course.  BUT, we have never attempted such a trip with 6 additional people in tow.  This is a family trip with a vast variety of interests, physical abilities, and experiences.  So I don’t have any rainbow-filled fantasies that this will be a smooth journey with no potholes or wrong turns.  But I can guarantee it will be an adventure!



Lippert doesn’t rent out their test campers so we are very appreciative they are loaning them to us for this trip.  And it will be a thorough test!  Most importantly, we are grateful the Italy teams took the time to meet with us and hear out our ideas on a couple of new products we would like to see exist in the marine market.  We are not big fish in this ocean and far from experts in our field.  But they certainly have treated us like we were.

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    Seems like I missed something? Thought you were sailing on your new boat in the Pacific?

    • Curious Minion

      The new boat won’t be ready until late June or early July. Videos on the blog are loaded with the most recent first if you want to scroll back & see what you missed. Or head over to the GWTW YouTube channel to see.

    WOW. So Cool. Boy, I have not been on a vaca in a long time. Nothing like Italy or England or was it London last week? You are causing ideas to get in motion and stirrings within me! Very cool that you are doing this for your Uncle, Aunt and Family. I wish I could be there with my family.
    Happiness and Joy,

    You two have done an amazing job of explaining manufacturing processes that I assume you previously had very limited experience with.
    I have spent my career programming CNC equipment, building injection molds, etc in the machining industry. As I was watching you explain the processes I was amazed how clearly you explained the processes.
    Been following you since we bought our first motor home about 9 years ago, and was looking for info on using a normal house fridge.
    Thanks for sharing all your travels and insights!

    My Dad said after he went there that everyone should see Tuscany before that die. Not sure how I’m going to make it but I’ll be interested to see how you Rzv style of travel works out
    Cheers Warren

    Oh it sounds like you are going to have so much fun! Sounds like an amazing trip! I am so happy that you got the whole family over there.

  • TracyH

    This is going to be awesome! What an adventure. In such close quarters too. Safe and smooth travels to you and your family. And what a wonderful gift for your uncle.

  • John

    This is going to be a fun series of GWTW videos.

    • Mary Van

      I would agree!

    You must;
    – walk around at least one of the ancient Tuscan hill towns — some of which go back to pre-Roman Etruscan times more than 2,500 years ago,
    – tour the art museums and churches of Florence,
    – ride a Vespa,
    – see the inside of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome — the tallest dome in the world, designed and overseen by Michelangelo,
    – see the Sistine Chapel ceiling,
    – tour the Amalfi Coast and the ruins of Pompeii,
    – walk around Siena,
    – visit Milan and see its Duomo,
    – and last but not least, Venice, of course.
