So… we had a rough week to say the least. From making some MAJOR newbie mistakes to having one of our income sources taken away we were ready to call it quits. Thankfully we didn’t and hopefully you can learn from some of our beginner RV mistakes!
Who is Getaway Couple?
We’re Rae and Jason! In July 2017, we downsized from a three bedroom house in Los Angeles to a 400 square foot fifth wheel to travel the United States. We’ve decided to document our journey from the beginning to show you the ups and downs of this lifestyle. It’s been a tough start but definitely rewarding! Follow along to see what kind of adventures we get into.

Lately, Mercedes and, to some extent, VW seem to have monopolized the market when it comes to platforms for recreational vehicles. But we are convinced that Ford should not be taken off your radar if you are searching for a camper that will combine affordability, reliability and the wide network of maintenance shops. Moreover, if you are shopping from the US, it would be simply irresponsible not to even consider supporting the native manufacturer. Today we will show you the newest models of Ford RVs that are available on the market and try to shaken the German dominance.

Fleetwood Enterprises’ origins date back to 1950, when John C. Crean formed Coach Specialties Company in southern California, as a maker of window blinds for travel trailers. Around 1953, Crean renamed the company to Fleetwood Trailer Company, a name inspired by the automotive bodies incorporated into various Cadillac lines of automobiles. In 1957, the company was reincorporated as Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc.
During its first dozen years, the company moved from Compton to Paramount to Anaheim. It moved again in 1962 to Riverside, California. Fleetwood became a public company in 1965, reporting annual sales of $18.5 million.
The company became part of the Fortune 500 in 1973, remaining there for nearly three decades.] By 1989, Fleetwood RVs sales reached the one billion dollar milestone; five years later, it hit the same milestone in its sales of manufactured homes.
