Hello from the Grand Canyon

Just found the site and joined up a couple days ago, looks like there's a lot of good info/advice on this forum hopefully I will be able to add to it in the future.

I'm a workkamper here at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Started in June 2013 and became a full timer last summer. Work here for 9 months and headed down to Quartzsite for winter this year. Hanging out at the big "Q" was a great learning experience for us since it was our first time boondocking in our 5er. We're now back at the Canyon getting ready for the 2016 season which is going to be the busiest year ever since it's the 100th year anniversary of the National Park Service, hoping to survive it!

Our current rig is a 2006 Excel RSO 30 pulled by a 2015 Ram 3500 dually, looking to upgrade to a little larger 5er in a year or two if we can find something we like, if not the Excel will do it's been a good trailer so far.
