Episode 71: Her Own Commander

Featuring Jessy Muller

It won’t take long for you to realize that Jessy Muller likes to do things on her own terms. That’s why, when she was ready to adopt a more mobile lifestyle in October of 2017, she found a vintage 1978 Commander motorhome and moved her and her two cats right in, which kicked off not only an adventure on the road, but also an adventure in learning how to work on the 24-foot-long camper she just purchased.

Since moving into her RV, Jessy has been a growing voice for taking charge of your own direction, especially when having an older vehicle means that sometimes things break down and in order to get yourself back out there, you have to learn to do things yourself.
