True one-of-a-kind Cozy-Comfy, Contemporary-Vintage lodging for exploring the GSMNP and surrounding area - Or for a nice peaceful get-away. A privately owned RV, The "Nomad Pad" is an homage to our nickname, the TwoScruffyNomads! Our beloved "Chinook" is unlike anything else you'll find, and we think you'll fall in love with it just as we continue to do even after 22 years - and 10 years of living around the country in it full time! Everything you need for a BIG time in a TINY footprint.

Interaction with guests
Although we are in Gatlinburg 2-3 months of the year, we do travel & work from our other Motorhome around the U.S. full time. However, the wonderful property here is family owned and DeWayne, Barbara, and their son-in-law, Nick, are all super folks and really excited about our…
