Adventure in Durango: Sara and Alyssa’s RV Experience


Hi Lovelies! Happy Wednesday. We’re halfway through the week, and summer is officially here in eight days! Sara and I recently had our first RV experience, and we can’t wait to share it with you. We rented an RV named “Piglet,” located in Albuquerque, which you can book through Outdoorsy. You have the option to have it delivered or pick it up yourself.

We decided to take Piglet to Nighthorse Lake in Durango. This lake is a stunning spot for paddle boarding, swimming, and even playing with motorized water toys. We just loved that Piglet allowed us to go anywhere and still use all its amenities. While at the lake with no hookups needed, we enjoyed a comfortable lunch with the AC running strong and were able to wash up before getting back on the water. This flexibility made our adventure even more enjoyable and convenient.

Since the lake is open daily but doesn’t allow overnight stays, we found a fantastic RV park called Oasis Durango RV Resort. This resort was perfect for us as first-time RV users, and it’s great for seasoned RV enthusiasts too. We booked a pull-in lot, which meant we didn’t have to worry about backing up the RV into a camping site – a huge relief for Sara, who was driving an RV for the first time. The site had water, electricity, and sewage hookups. Piglet made it easy to connect everything since the hookups are conveniently located on the driver’s side, and Brian, the owner, provides a helpful paper guide.

Setting everything up was a breeze, and we quickly settled into our cozy home on wheels for the weekend. We were thrilled with Piglet and truly enjoyed making it our little sanctuary on the road.

Now, let’s talk about the details of Piglet. This RV is designed for comfort and convenience, making it an excellent choice for your next adventure.

Inside Piglet

Sleeping Arrangements:
Piglet has two beds that can comfortably accommodate four adults. The setup is flexible and easy to manage, ensuring everyone gets a good night’s sleep.

There’s a shower and toilet, along with a mini closet for your clothes. This setup ensures you have all the basic amenities you need, right on board.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a two-burner stove, microwave, and a fridge with a freezer. There’s plenty of space to store all your essentials, whether it’s snacks or games. Piglet also comes stocked with plates, silverware, pots, cups, and some seasonings for cooking, making meal prep a breeze.

Living Area

Dining and Living Room:
The dining, living, and bedroom areas are designed for versatility. Both beds are easy to collapse and set up, allowing you to maximize space during the day and ensure comfort at night. There’s storage under the table seats, perfect for stowing away your belongings.

Additional Seating:
The front seats swivel, providing extra seating when you’re parked and set up. This feature makes the living area more spacious and comfortable.

For those moments when you’re not out exploring, there’s a TV where you can watch DVDs. Bring your favorite movies and enjoy a cozy night in.

Favorite Features

One of my favorite features is the built-in speakers, both inside and outside the RV. You can easily hook up your phone and enjoy your favorite music wherever you are.

The sunroof is another highlight. It doubles as a moonroof at night, perfect for stargazing from the comfort of your RV.

Piglet combines practicality with a touch of luxury, ensuring your RV experience is both enjoyable and memorable. Whether you’re new to RVing or a seasoned traveler, Piglet offers everything you need for a fantastic trip.

Our Experience

Sara and I stayed at a pull-in lot with all hookups for $68 per night. The resort was clean, well-mapped out, and very welcoming. The pet-friendly atmosphere was a big plus for us, and our dogs loved the dog park and the mini stream.
