About Ruth

  • RVing for 3 years
  • Owned an RV for 3 years
I am a retired teacher from New Jersey. My husband and I came to Tennessee to be near family, but a few years ago my husband died. Now I try to get to New Jersey as often as I can. I owned a pet sitting business on Signal Mountain and have four dogs of my own as well as four various kinds of birds. I love my animals because they give me so much love and keep me from being lonely. I purchased an RV so I can take my dogs with me on some of my trips. This is my second motorhome and better suited for my lifestyle. I named the Winnebago, Amelia Bedelia because my maiden voyage was on Amelia Island in Georgia. The most enjoyable part of renting Amelia are the people I meet! They have been wonderful and treated Amelia with total respect. When they return her, they all praise the way she handled and the accommodations. This makes me very proud and am glad it is going so well!

Ruth was very helpful and give us detailed info about the RV. The experience was great for us being first timers, the RV was easy to maneuver, good on hilly roads, and cheaper on gas ( diesel engine).

Our family of four enjoyed renting Amelia Bedelia! The RV is very clean, easy to drive, and simple to use. We have rented from Ruth in the past and would definitely rent from her again. As always, thanks for making it an easy process for our family.

We loved Ruth! She was so easy to work with. We visited with her before the rental to see if the RV would work for us. She spent a lot of time making us feel confident with the RV when we picked it up and she was available at a convenient time for us to return the RV.

Fantastic experience. I agree with what others have said, the RV is not too big (24ft) and a bit more narrow than most other RVs which really makes driving a lot more enjoyable. Gets pretty good gas mileage as well (15-16mpg). Its new and clean and everything works as it should. My wife and I...

Ruth was so great to work with. She spent extra time with me and my husband on the (a) front-end AND (b) back-end, because, (a) well, he's an engineer and likes to asks questions and (b) he sometimes leaves things behind. Thanks Ruth!

I fully agree with what everyone else has said about Ruth and her RV - great person, great RV. This was a first time RV rental for us as well, and for a first time RV, this rig is great. The rig is 24' long and 7.5' wide (most RV's are 8.5' wide), so it was easy to maneuver (this is great if...

On May11 and 12. Ruth was extremely helpful and encouraging for us as we were novice RVers. We had to cut our trip short so we didn't have a long experience with Amelia Bedelia but it was beautifully set up and manageable. We are very happy to have found Ruth

Ruth and her Flying Turtle were a dream for our first time RV rental experience. Everything was clean, fresh and more than we expected from a rental. The Turtle was easy to drive and maneuver in the camp ground. Had plenty of power for the interstate with the Ford F-450 power plant. This was our...
