I like to think of it as my “Just in Case Place.” Balanced between wanting to boondock or needing to bug out, the SRMR (Self Reliant Mobile Residence) has multiple functions.

From the moment I began RVing, I realized the duel purposes of recreating on the one hand and evacuating on the other. There is no better way to bolt to somewhere or from something. Family vacationing emergency vacating, your home away from home can be a perfect base camp, wherever you find yourself. In a few short weeks I will be launching 3 videos here on highlighting the engineering and building of the SRMR.

Meanwhile, I am very excited to take this week off and attend the Mid Atlantic Truck Camper Rally. I can’t wait to get there. If you are in the area, please swing by.

Please join me on Facebook for more exclusive photos and engineering mock-ups of the SRMR. Stay tuned to my Facebook page for details on the upcoming video on building the SRMR.

  1. My wife and I have spent many of the winters, diunrg the nine years we have been full time rving, in Mexico, both the Baja and in the mainland. We have never had a problem and find the people (once you are away from the border) to be some of the most friendly and warm people in the world and we have traveled plenty. An incident such as this happens hundreds of times a day in the U.S.

  2. As fellow Lance owners we’re looking forward to seeing your videos. After spending three months in ours this winter there are some changes we’d like to make and we’ll be tuning in to see your recommendations.
