She says of her RV passion,

I started back in the ’60s, when RV’s were rare.  We actually used old buses and made RV’s  out of them.  I could even drive those back then, but now I have a driver.  I don’t know of anyone who has logged more miles than me in the comfort of my bus or RV.

Her favorite RV memory?

My favorite RV memory was when I retired my old bus and parked it in Dollywood for guests to tour. It had over 600,000 miles on it, and I knew every nook and cranny on it. It was its final journey, and it was a sentimental trip to its resting place at Dollywood. It is there to honor my longtime manager, driver and friend, Don Warden. He has traveled all those miles with me.

Dolly recorded many songs while on the bus, including the entire 9 to 5 The Musical and the album Backwoods Barbie.

Let Dolly Parton show you around her favorite home.

You can tell the bus reflects her personality and style. I can’t believe how tiny that tub is though. How does she fit in there?
