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 three dogs of my own, as well as two birds and a dwarf rabbit. 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!

If you rent this rv, please be aware that it’s best to communicate only through the site. Also please inspect the rv with her when you return it and get it in writing that you both agree on its state of cleanliness. Her last words to me when we left were that she’s already inspected the inside and...

This is my first time renting a RV, everything was great, a few minor issues but nothing that couldn't be remedied. Miss Ruth is the nicest person and very good at explaining the vehicle and all the workings. I'm looking forward to our next trip !!

We had a great time in spite of Florence and the closure of Great Smoky Mt. Park. Ruth is easy and fun to work with. Amelia is easy to drive but has very low clearance in the very back so take care! We are planning to buy our own rv or we would do it again. Thanks!

Ruth and her RV were a joy. The RV itself was impeccable and super modern. Ruth was very easy to communicate with and she made sure to give us a good lesson on the ins and out of her RV. For anything else that may have come up, we were able to use the RV manual and that sufficed. Would do it again!

Very nice RV. A lot of undue stress interjected the last day, due to confusion on the part of the owner - who got very confrontational but reverted to being pleasant when we brought the RV back. Get any additional agreements in writing.
