About Brian & Melanie

  • RVing for 2 years
  • Owned an RV for 2 years
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!

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...

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...

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 little C-Class was perfect for a two-person week-long hiking trip in Big Bend NP. It was easy to drive, able to negotiate switch-backs in the park with which longer vehicles would have struggled or perhaps failed, and fully self-sufficient for being away from a campsite all day. Brian’s...

We love the Red Baron! Traveling with a 3 and 5 year old can be interesting. To have all the amenities of an RV in the size of a van is amazing. No more drive thru meals or gas station bathrooms. We loaded up with enough food for a week and still had plenty of room in the fridge and...

Two week trip with my mom. - Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. She is elderly, so it was more about comfortable travel than ‘accommodations’ for her. For me, it was testing the waters to full-time. Great communication and ease of transaction. Perfect for our needs, and the coach handles like a...

This was our first RV experience. It was amazing from beginning to end. I had never been in a RV let alone driven one. I was a little nervous, of course I couldn't show that. I meet with the John who was very nice, patient, and understanding. He explained all the aspects of the RV unaware...

We had a great time and unit was just the right size. Brain was very helpful with information leading up to the trip and gave good instructions upon picking up the unit. Would rent from them again.

This was our first time to drive an RV, and the Red Baron was the perfect choice, as it is about as close to a car as you can get and fit a family (of 4)! Also, it is a real show-stopper, as we were literally flagged down by fans everywhere we went. Brian was exceedingly patient with my endless...

Fantastic RV. Smaller size makes it easy to drive and maneuver yet, with the slide-outs, quite roomy. The Owners made my first RV experience perfect. Can’t wait to rent it again.

Outstanding vehicle that is economical and easy to drive and fits anywhere. The floor plan includes everything the larger RV’s have without the size. I recommend The Red Baron to anyone considering it! Brian and Melanie also made the experience super easy with no stress!
