Trudy

Trudy was our first rig.  She continues her full-time RV life with another set of young RVers now.  We enjoyed living and traveling in Trudy but the layout was not great for a toddler.

You can see a video tour of her here.

Trudy is a 2006 Damon Intruder (nicknamed “Trudy”).  She is a gas-powered Class A motorhome and is 38 feet long.  She had about 23k miles on the odometer when we bought her and about 29k when we sold her.

Trudy, the day we drove her home
Trudy after 19 miles of 6% downhill grades in Cloudcroft, NM. The old lady deserved a rest.
