Have You Seen Boheme Bertha in Montana?
I was an RV kid.
When I was 9, my grandparents took me and my brother on a road trip to Alaska from Missoula, Montana, in a fifth wheel. The trip took three weeks, and we drove 6,482 miles. To this day, it was one of the most educational and influential trips of my childhood.
Later, my parents bought a camper that fit on the back of their Ford and being small, I slept above the kitchen table in a cupboard that folded out. It was cool when I was a kid, but looking back, I can see why I'm fine with staying in hotels when I travel.
I can understand the appeal of owning an RV and traveling the country. That's why I was absolutely delighted when I spotted this particular RV in Missoula.
There's no question why it caught my attention, in fact, I think I audibly gasped when I saw it. Then, I got up close and was enamored with the paint job. Check out the detail:
And it's not just one side. There's another mural on the other side.
But the best part? There were some "breadcrumbs" inscribed on the back of the RV.
That's right, this beautiful RV has a name and her own social media accounts. When you visit the accounts you'll see that Bertha is just beginning her journey as a family RV. The Facebook page seems to indicate that Bertha makes her home in Missoula but she's traveled to Black Canyon City, Arizona, Palm Springs, California, and Kings Canyon National Park.
You'd think that an RV with a paint job and social handles would have a huge following--but it doesn't! So let's help out and make Bertha an honest-to-goodness influencer. You can follow Boheme Bertha on Instagram and Facebook.
