Hi, I am Brian & Melanie McNerlin

We are a couple who have always loved the outdoors. We registered at REI for our wedding, and we spent our first anniversary camping in a tent, eating hot dogs and beans...and drinking champagne. In 2017, we bought our first RV, a 25' Thor Motorcoach Chateau with a Mercedes diesel engine. In 2018, we bought a 21' Winnebego Travato. When we retire, we hope to spend some time traveling the US in a larger motorhome, visiting national parks. In the meantime, we enjoy using our small RVs to tailgate at concerts and games, to camp on the Texas gulf coast (especially Padre Island National Seashore), and to take road trips. It's great to be able to pull off the road to rest or make a snack, and there are lots of free places to spend the night, including truck stops, many casinos, and Super Walmarts. We've been thrilled with our RV purchases, and we're equally thrilled to be able to share them with you! So, what are you waiting for? Reserve our RV today! Still have questions? Just ask!

We rented the Chateau for a week trip to the Big Bend National Park area. We rented the RV to see if we might want to buy one. We had a great experience and have already gone looking to purchase one. Brian was super to work with. We had several questions before we rented and he always answered right away. When we arrived he gave us a tour of the RV and explained how to work everything. He seemed e…

We rented Thor for an extended weekend in Texas Hill Country...camped and tubed down the Frio River and stayed at Riverbend on the Frio RV Park. The RV was perfect for the getaway and was very easy to drive. Brian was easy to communicate with. We did have a flat on one of the back dual tires after we got to the RV park, but called the Outdoorsy roadside assistance and they were able to find so…

I rented the Chateau for a two week trip to the Texas Panhandle. It was surprisingly easy to drive and park, and the gas mileage was really reasonable. It is very spacious and comfortable. This is my second time renting from Brian and Melanie and they are the best to respond and quickly help me with any questions. I already have another rental booked with them for this summer. I highly recommend the McNerlins and their RV’s!

It’s the one year anniversary since my mother and I rented the Red Baron for an entire month. Together, we toured the entire southern United States making memories that we will never forget. The Travato was the perfect vehicle for the two of us, enabling us to travel in style. Everything we needed was on board! Brian was easy going and excited for us. This was the first time we ever traveled in an…

The Red Baron was just what I needed for a long weekend. Brian and Melanie were super easy to rent from. I am already scheduled for 2 more rental with them this summer!

This was the first time for me and found the process easy and professional. Brian was excellent at showing me how to use everything especially for a first time user.

I highly recommend the Red Baron and Brian.
