Miranda Lambert bought a new RV to roadtrip around the country with her husband

Is anyone else still kind of shocked that Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin are still together and relatively drama-free at this moment? They’ve been married for coming up on a year and a half. The two-year anniversary of the first time they met will be in October/November. At the time they met, he was a Hot Cop with a baby on the way – his former mistress/side-chick would give birth to their son the same week Miranda and Brendan met. Their courtship involved drama and salad-tossing. Their wedding was secret for months. But Brendan has settled in – he quit his job as a police officer, and he and Miranda split their time between New York and Nashville. And now they’re going on the road? Miranda posted the Instagram, above, of herself and Brendan showing off their new RV purchase:

Sunday thoughts. When people ask me questions about all the traveling I’ve done , my answer is pretty much the same every time. “ I’ve been everywhere but I haven’t seen much of anything. “ I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in , play our show, and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real time in a few of the places I’ve been. After spending these last few months at home ( a much needed break and time to nest❤️) I realized something. Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music. I have the most amazing travel companion, my husband , and we decided to add a family member.

Y’all Meet “The Sheriff . “ A 2020 Airstream Globetrotter. ( thanks @rocketcityrv ) I’ve been a vintage trailer collector for years and this is my very first new one. I’m letting go of a few vintage to make room for adventure in this silver gem! I don’t like change but I’m learning to embrace it. Until I get get back on Elvira and tour, I’ll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes. #highwayvagabonds #livinlikehippies #BandMetour

Honestly, RVs leave me cold – I can’t imagine carting around some huge RV across the country. Don’t get me wrong, I like roadtrips. I just don’t enjoy the idea of sleeping in one confined little space and trying to cook there too and all of that. Now, that being said, I’ve always liked the aerodynamic/modern look of those silver “bullet” RVs. Those are super-cute, and I don’t hate the look of Miranda’s new RV. But lord, the drama! How do you think Brendan manages? I think he must be very easy-going, either that or he just thrives on drama like Miranda.

    So in the midst of a pandemic when we are supposed to be limiting travel and contact with others, she, a recognizable celebrity who will undoubtedly draw autograph seekers if not crowds, is going to flit about from place to place? Huh.

  2. Astrid says:

    Not my favorite form of travel. Years ago with four little kids, traveling with a camper, one of the kids ALWAYS had to use the bathroom next to the dinner table half way through a meal. Strange time for her to think about buying an RV.

    I read an article yesterday that said most RV parks are closed because of the pandemic. I know nothing about RVs, but if this article was correct, apparently they’re not meant to be self contained for any length of time; you still have to hook them up to electric and sanitary systems.

    Of course I guess she could afford the arrangements for that.

      I’ve read the same about RV parks being closed which left many people who actually live in them in a quandary.

      I dont own an RV and never will, but I follow a few folk on Youtube that are full time RV’ers. Just about all RV’s & motorhomes can be used on a full time basis, just depends on what you want and the level of comfort that you need. I’ve come to understand that there is “free” land, BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land, on which you can camp (boondock) for a limited amount of time. Folk have got solar panels for electricty, propane for their cooker tops/furnace/fridges etc and they manage to conserve water so only need to fill up their water tanks and empty their grey & black water tanks every week or so.

      Lots of RV parks are closed, but plenty remain open and people seem to be staying put for longer.

        National Forests, too, 14 days tops. Plus there’s Walmart parking lots, they allow it.

    I think once restrictions are lifted, this would be a fun way to travel. I’m certainly not staying in a hotel or getting on an airplane for the foreseeable future, and while I wouldn’t really want an Airstream, I think the fancier RVs seem pretty luxurious and fun. If I ever hit the lottery, I’ll get one lol.

    We’ve been talking about getting one ourselves- it will probably be a long time before international travel resumes/feels safe, and we don’t really want to be on planes if we can help it… but our families live across the country and we did want to honeymoon after our covid-elopement (since the wedding had to be cancelled). And as Miranda says, her job is touring and music so eventually she’ll have to travel again… maybe it’s just a safer choice for them to avoid air travel and hotels. I dunno, I don’t see anything wrong with preparing for the “new reality” that will be post-quarantine life.

    We have an RV and travel everywhere! Its allowed us more family time together, and I can relax without worrying about laundry I should be doing or any number of things thats constantly on my mind when I’m at home. Even if its the weekend I can’t fully relax when I’m home because there’s a million things that need done. Being in our RV eliminates that for me and allows me to just relax and unwind. We play more games and explore more, and our kids get more of our undivided attention. Especially when you’re somewhere with no internet and you arent distracted by phones, ipads,etc. It’s also an affordable way to see the country, and I prefer having my own things! I actually cook more because I have more time and desire. I realize it isn’t for everyone, but we love it.

    And regarding the social distancing, if you stay in your own camper and on your own site and respect social distancing when hiking or exploring I dont see how it’s any different that any other situation that is currently permitted. Public areas like bathrooms and playgrounds can still be off limits.

    I wouldn’t enjoy that, but to each their own.
    But not right now.

    He’s so skeevy. He looks like a rodent.

    My partner wanted a teardrop camper, so we got one a few years ago. I’d never thought of travelling that way, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. It’s nice to be able to get into National or State Park campgrounds and wake up in the morning with easy access to the sights and hiking. I also love being able to cook, hang out and read when it’s raining and not take luggage in and out of hotels. It’s not good for a fancy dress up kind of vacation, though, as our bathroom and shower are tiny.
