“I didn’t go to the RV this summer,” the Sister Wives star, 53, commented to a fan during an Instagram Live, which she aired on Sunday, July 10. “Savanah really struggled with the RV. She was a trooper last year, but she said, ‘Mom, this year, I just can’t.’ She’s moving into her final year.”
The TLC celebrity has Savannah, 17, with husband Kody Brown, along with kids Garrison, Logan, Hunter, Madison, and Gabriel. Kody, 53, has 19 kids in all with Janelle, Meri Brown, Robyn Brown, and ex-Christine Brown.
While Janelle isn’t putting the RV to use this summer, the vehicle isn’t gone for good. “We elected to just keep it — it’s at the repair shop right now — but we’ll use it on the weekends,” she added.

Everything We Know About ‘Sister Wives’ Season 17
The Browns moved to Flagstaff, Arizona, from Las Vegas in 2018. Kody originally planned to live in one enormous mansion on the desert land, but his spouses balked at the notion and built distinct residences at Coyote Pass. Three years later, Janelle shared her RV “adventure” with her social media fans.
“The apartment where I was living was sold and I selected another way to try to find another property,” she posted via Instagram in June 2021.
“Not only is the housing market in Flagstaff as chaotic as where you are I’m sure, but rentals are also even tougher to come by. Presenting my new summer adventure — the RV life but camping on our property.”
Janelle bid the mobile life goodbye four months later. “So long trailer! See ya next spring 😀,” she captioned a November 2021 Instagram image. “Trailer is headed down to storage for the winter. We chose to find short-term lodging in town instead of riding out the winter.”
Earlier this year, Janelle and her son Garrison started “to get things ready for this following summer” at Coyote Pass. “I recall how much I love being here,” the reality TV star told fans in April.
“You know, I was in town for the winter — and I adore town, love it — but goodness! And I forget about what it’s like out here, and I came out and it’s sort of starting to be spring, and … I just adore it here. … I love the mountains. I love being on this land. I adore it all.”

Janelle has been spiritually married to Kody since 1993. During an episode of Sister Wives in January, she stated that she felt the Browns had “lost sight” of their bond. “I’ve had to really think,” she said.
“My children are practically grown and there’s not a tremendous necessity anymore to stay. It was a beautiful way to raise children. With Kody and I right now, our connection is pretty tense. And you know, it’s easy to walk away.”
Kody’s relationship with his wife has been under focus since his breakup from Christine, 50, in November 2021. At the time, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that Janelle, Meri, and Robyn were “aware” of the breakup – and were considering following in Christine’s footsteps.
“If anything, it sort of inspired the others in one way or another to reassess their position,” the source remarked. “[Janelle’s] incredibly close to Christine, so she’s in daily communication with her.
Meri could not be any farther distant from the other spouses and Kody. He’s trembling and scared that Meri or Janelle are going to leave him.”
