Meet the Mehigans!
This summer, Nina and John Mehigan took their kids, including the family dog, on the road to explore the spectacular US sights. “We came to Goss RV as first-time RVers. We knew we wanted to take a family vacation with our 3 children, twin 8-year-olds and a 6-year-old, this summer, and while googling RV trips, I stumbled across Goss RV. The website and Instagram were beautiful and professional, so I thought I would give them a call. And the rest is history as they say!” said Nina about booking her family’s journey with Goss RV.
Goss RV’s team of dedicated trip planners navigated the new COVID-19 guidelines across the country, including openings and location closures, to customize the best itinerary for their family. From routes to travel to which RV parks to encamp, to excursions at each US national park, Goss RV helped plan their trip from start to finish.
“From the time I called to booking our trip and traveling, Goss RV took care of us in every detail. The trip planning team put together an amazing itinerary for the Canyons tour, and the excursions we booked with them were phenomenal to say the least. They also helped us extend our trip when we weren’t ready to leave!”
Where they Traveled
With several ideas in mind, the Mehigan family decided to tour the canyons of the US. As first-time RVers, they set out on a 10-day journey out west with the goal of an unforgettable family vacation. In early June, the Mehigans departed for Utah from their home in California.
During their trip, they stayed at a variety of RV parks, their favorite being Zion Ponderosa Ranch. The resort offers amenities, such as a personal firepit, a pool and jacuzzi, and a sports center, while campground activities included, zip lining, skeet shooting, rock climbing and more.
While in Utah, they explored Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. During their time at Bryce Canyon the Mehigans marveled at the four main viewpoints, Bryce Point, Inspiration Point, Sunset Point, and Sunrise Point. Towards the end of their time at Bryce Canyon, they participated in a guided ATV tour, where they ventured out to lesser known parts of the region, including winding drives through Ponderosa Pine forests to the rim of the canyon.
Throughout the trip, Goss RV’s service team was sure to check in on the Mehigans to make sure their time on the road was running smoothly. “Their drivers service team gave us a thorough driving orientation to teach us how to handle such a big coach, and the tech team was with us throughout the trip to ensure we were comfortable with the many buttons, lights, fluid, etc.”
As they ventured on to Arizona, the family stayed at Wahwheap RV park and visited Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell, where they went on gorgeous day hikes and cruised the lake. During their stay at Wahwheap, they also ventured out to Glen Canyon and visited Rainbow Bridge, the highest natural bridge in the world.
Towards the end of their trip, Nina and John took their kids to Grand Canyon National Park. Throughout their time there, they took the kids on many stunning, private and self-guided hikes, walked the South Rim to the Rim Trail, and rode bikes, from Bright Angel Bicycles, to end their adventure in the canyons.
On their trip home to California, they were already planning their next family RV trip. “We cannot give this trip high enough marks! We are already planning to go to Yellowstone next year. Thank you for an unforgettable family vacation! We can’t wait to be back on the road.”
