Tell us a little about yourself and why you own a TAXA?

I live in sunny Del Rio, Texas with my wife Kate and my five kids: John, Rosie, Clare, Eliza and Gabriel. Three years ago I saw my first Cricket, in a resale lot close to our home. For the first few days, I could not figure out what the "space ship" I told my wife about was for. Flash forward a few weeks and my wife and I purchased our first TAXA from that same resale lot. Over time our family grew and we traded in our Cricket for a Mantis because we appreciated how TAXA Outdoors made more than living room on wheels. My kids love telling people at campgrounds about our Mantis with its bunks and a tree house on top.

Where is your favorite place to take your TAXA?
