My Lance 2385 Photo Gallery

Picked up my trailer from Dennis Dillon RV in Boise, Idaho on September 15, 2016.  Drove it 650 miles to my new “Snowbird Home” in Boulder City, Nevada.   This Winter I will be doing numerous modifications to upgrade the trailer.

After a major downsize in my lifestyle, I am having fun learning to live full time in a trailer 24 feet long with 220 SF of living space.  Great challenge!  After receiving numerous requests for trailer photos, I post the following Slideshow.  Enjoy.

3700 Miles To Buy A Lance Travel Trailer

I don’t know why I had to drive 3700 miles to find the perfect travel trailer.  That is the equivalent of driving  from Las Vegas, Nevada where I currently live to Anchorage, Alaska.  I drove 3700 miles in the span of 4 months. I am now home with my new 2012 Lance 2385 travel trailer in the driveway.  I am satisfied that I have found travel trailer that will work for me to full-time for the next several years.  I will share my thoughts and comments on my new trailer in future BLOG POSTS.

How did I drive 3700 miles, you ask?  Here is the breakdown:

1300 mile RT to Boise, ID.  Bought a 2009 Nash 22H.  Decided it was too small.
500 mile RT to San Bernadino, CA.  Delivered the 2009 Nash to a new buyer.
600 mile RT to Phoenix, AZ to look at a toyhauler.  Trailer was a lemon. Dealer a crook.
1300 mile RT to Boise, ID to pickup my new 2012 Lance 2385 travel trailer.
3700 miles total

I Pick Up My New Trailer

On May 11, 2016, I drove 638 miles from my home in Las Vegas to Dennis Dillon RV in Boise, Idaho.  I bought a 2009 Nash 22H.  Nash has a reputation for building a strong, rugged, off road trailer that is well insulated for all four seasons.  Fully self contained, this 24′ trailer is complete with kitchen, queen bed, couch, dinette, full bath and a 160 watt solar panel on the roof for off the grid camping.  It was a great trip up Highway 93 through the Great Basin Valley of eastern Nevada.
