Hull #1297 is home


Recommended Posts


We took delivery of the Prairie Schooner on Thursday 11/17/2022.  Prairie Schooner is another name for a covered wagon – nothing better epitomizes the adventurous spirit!

We found a few service items that needed fixing during our delivery walkthrough and we parked in the Oliver campground just after sunset. We recommend you ask the delivery team to fully de-winterize for you or show you the steps: We had to complete some de-winterization tasks, in the dark and without help (everyone had gone home). Shout-out to our new friend Rob who took delivery on the same day – we helped each other out!  Another recommendation for those of you who opted for the compost toilet: Bring some prepared moss/coconut coir – Oliver provided two coconut coir blocks, but they were not moistened. Luckily, we did bring some prepared coconut. We were also surprised about the size of the freezer in the Isotherm Refrigerator; it is half the size of the freezer we saw in the model EII.

We stayed in the Oliver campground until Saturday, then started our four-day journey west to Texas.  We stayed at St. Luke’s Lutheran church, a Harvest Host site east of Memphis, then Caddo Valley RV Park in Arkadelphia, AR. Lastly, we visited another Harvest Host site: Bee Happy Farms in Brashear, TX – very peaceful surrounded by the animal paddocks and enjoyed farm fresh eggs! A beautiful starry night.

Now, we need to watch all of Katjo’s organizing videos, do some local camping, and put the Schooner through her paces. We have a few items to follow-up on: We can’t reset our RVLock, we need to try to replicate an inverter error, and we need to submit a ticket for the grill (they ran out of supplies).

Congratulations from #1290 picked up on 11/7.  Good name for your camper.  Camper out east, trailer out west.  I like the eastern term!  We haven't come up with a name yet.  Enjoy your adventures.
