Say hello to Harvey the skoolie. Harvey has moved from northern New Mexico and is now located in the small village of Chaparral, NM. This is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of life while still having all the city amenities close by.

Harvey is a 2002 Bluebird Mini Bird from Bend-La Pine, Oregon! Harvey retired from service in January 2020, and over the course of 8 months transformed into a Tiny Traveling Home. In February 2021 Harvey made his maiden voyage down the West Coast, over to Texas, then back to northern New Mexico and finally landed in southern New Mexico at BNC Farms.

BNC Farms is a 10 acre property with beautiful desert wildlife and plants. Harvey has been lovingly situated on an RV pad with a picnic table and fire pit ready to use. While looking out the original Bluebird bus windows you'll see the Franklin Mountains in the distance and can see the Organ Mountains from the deck.

Inside Harvey you will find a comfortable double bed, a dinette that turns into a sofa/bed, his-and-hers closets, a television with USB cable, and a functional kitchen space with sink, mini-fridge + freezer, and a 2-burner cooktop. Outside, we invite you to enjoy a dedicated space with small fire pit, picnic table, and grill. This is a time to unplug and enjoy the uniqueness of the high desert so wifi is not available. However, cell phone service is usually normal and if you have a hot spot you are welcome to use it for the smart TV. If not we've got some DVD's for your use. Harvey can host three guests. Linens are provided for the full size bed in the back. Please bring along a sleeping bag or linens for the sofa bed if you would like to use it  . The dinette is easy to convert into a bed.

Harvey does not have air conditioning! There are plenty of windows and the breeze typically keeps Harvey pretty cool. There is also a portable swamp cooler that helps keep Harvey cool. There is a battery fan inside Harvey.  In the winter time, we recommend bringing along sleeping bags. 

Summer time is hot in the desert and shade is limited in the afternoon. 

We provide a Luggable Loo, bags, and kitty litter. Waste must be packed out, no exceptions. 

Harvey @ BNC Farms is ideally located right in-inbetween El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM. All parts of both cities can be accessed within 30-40 minutes from the dome.

The best part about Harvey's location is that it is near some of the most compelling outdoor areas and activities in southern New Mexico! Just a 10 minute drive down the street you will find some of the most popular hiking and mountain biking destinations from the Round House trail. There are many various points of entry to the Franklin Mountains State Park. Heading west about 30 minutes away you'll have access to the beautiful Organ mountains, again with some of the most compelling hiking and biking in the area. Let's not forget about Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic site, avid climbers come from all over the world to climb and boulder here.

Harvey is also ideally situated in a location that is great to use as home base to visit many of the surrounding National Parks. White Sands National Parks is 1.5 hours away and Carlsbad Caverns is about 2.5 hours away. In our guest book you'll find countless other recommendations.

The owners of BNC Farms live on site in another house on the property. There is also another short term rental on the property. Both rentals, Harvey and the Desert Dome, are situated in a way that provides maximum privacy for all guests, even separate entrances. We are available for any emergencies during your stay, however Harvey is a self check-in and check-out system. If any issues arise during your stay please feel free to message us via the Hipcamp app.

Another perk of Harvey is the ability to coordinate a time to go see the farm animals. There is a donkey named Lyla, a cow named Bess, some adorable goats, chickens and our rooster named Bruno. We ask that you do not go to the back area without us. This is for the safety of our animals and yours as well. We would be happy to coordinate a time with you that we can all go see the animals together.

We love fur babies and we love yours too! Harvey is only able to comfortably host one pet per stay. If you are traveling with a pet, please keep them leashed at all times when not inside. We have other guests with pets and for the safety of our farm animals. There is a scoop and pet bags, please clean up after your pets.

There is a beehive on the far south end of the property. Please keep this in mind if dealing with any allergies. The girls from the beehive aren't typically found in the area near Harvey, however various species of bee's can still be found and encountered in the desert.

Please remember this is the desert, there are goat heads (thorns/stickers) here, aka “picas”. It’s apart of desert life, so we recommend wearing tennis shoes or boots.
