Rickie said: "Just being able to lay back and have the comforts of home, being out on the road as long as we are, is awesome.”

And Elizabeth's favourite features in her home-away-from-home? "I think the best thing for any woman is the shower and the toilet. At one, two in the morning when you have to go, you gotta go!"

Join the happy couple for an average day of their lives - out on the road and travelling all over the US.
