Dorothy and I bought a house on wheels!
It was quite an adventure to buy the vehicle and drive it home.
We flew from Ottawa to Toronto:
Then we jumped on a small plane to Sault Ste. Marie:
When we arrived we saw this beauty:
She’s a 2011 Winnebago View 24J built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Chasis:
Her name is Belle.
Actually, her full name is BelleView. Weird right?! Dorothy likes the name so it’s gonna stick!
We bought her used from a great guy and it’s virtually brand new. He was the perfect guy to buy an RV from. He was meticulous about maintenance, cleaning, and he really respected the vehicle. It only has 3000 miles on it and it’s a diesel! We paid ~40% less than what he bought for it last April.
We had been on the hunt for this exact vehicle for months and to see it now sitting in the driveway is really exciting.
We plan to enjoy what’s left of the summer knowing Belle is ready to go for the next adventure!

Nom Nom Nom:
We’re now getting geared up for full-time North America based nomadism. There is a loooong list of items that we need to get for our new house on wheels. We plan to add solar panels, 4g modems, Antennae, Bedding, Small Dog Crate… The list goes on and on.
Clearly Belle is quite an upgrade from our last van Gerty! We spent 10 months in Australia in our little Van Gerty which you can see below.
Duncan and our old van Gerty in Australia:
We’re excited for: concerts, festivals, parties, friends, tourist stuff, and all the amazing photographic opportunities!
The plan: GO SOUTH for the winter and HAVE FUN!!
We’ll be on Hill Island for at least a few more weeks before we head South.
Dorothy and I are very happy and excited for the next chapter in our lives.
