Jim and Mary Competti have already made a mark on the homesteading blogosphere with their beautiful farmhouse and barn that feature reclaimed materials. Life on a farm can be exciting, but maybe not as exciting and challenging as visiting all 50 states over the course of a year. Yes, even Alaska and Hawaii are on the list.
The couple have just taken off on a year-long journey in a new nuCamp TAB 400 travel trailer towed with a Chevrolet Silverado. The trailer has a custom wrap that features them and their Living Simple Tour logo.
Last year, the Compettis decided to leave their farm and day jobs behind and follow their passion for travel. They intend to visit each state and have approximate dates of when they will be arriving in your area.
The couple plans on writing stories on where they visit on their Living Simple blog, Facebook page, and Instagram. You can sign up for their email newsletter to keep track of their journey.
The TAB 400 is nuCamp’s largest travel trailer, but it is still a lightweight option for visiting the entire United States. It has a total dry weight of 2,864 lb. and a total wet weight of 3,133 lb.
Its compact, but smart interior features a wet bath, a dinette, kitchen, and a queen bed with a FROLI Sleep System. The FROLI is a set of interlocking springs that allow for airflow beneath an RV mattress. The flexible surface is lightweight and offers support for any sleeping mattress.
The TAB 400 has other comfortable features for a long trip. There is an AC unit, an Alde central heat and hot water system, and a 2-way-fridge. In addition, the 400 features electric brakes, a 1200-watt inverter, and two 6-volt batteries. There is an option for solar as well as various graphic, color, and cushion options.
nuCamp has brought stylish European travel trailers and truck campers to the states. The company also sells the popular TAG teardrop trailers, Cirrus truck campers, and the new AVIA travel trailer. All the products are made in Ohio by Amish craftspeople.
