Janelle Brown opened up on why she and her daughter Savannah didn’t move into their RV at the family’s land plot this summer, in an Instagram Live on Saturday, July 9. While the video was mostly a gardening update, the Sister Wives star also explained that Savannah had asked for them not to go for the whole summer, especially as she gets ready for her final year of high school.
After a commenter asked about the RV, Janelle, 53, explained the reasoning. “I didn’t go to the RV this summer. Savannah really struggled with the RV. She was a trooper last year, but she said, ‘Mom, this year I just can’t.’ She’s going into her senior year,” she said.
While she said that they wouldn’t be spending as much time at Coyote Pass, Janelle did reveal that they’ll probably still get some time at the family’s ranch. “So we opted to just keep it—it’s at the repair shop right now, but we’ll use it on the weekends,” she said.
The video came three months after Janelle gave a video update from Coyote Pass with her son Garrison, 23, showing them getting ready to spend the summer at the family’s land. “We came out to the property. We’re starting to get things ready for this next summer, and I remember how much I love it here,” she said in the clip. “I’m so excited to get out here this summer.”
Janelle is the second of Kody Brown’s wives. Together, the pair have six kids, besides Savannah and Garrison including Logan, 28, Maddie, 26, Hunter, 25, and Gabrielle, 20. While the RV seemed like a lot for this summer, Janelle revealed that she had a blast living in it during the summer of 2021. “I acted boldly and seized an adventure,” she wrote in her announcement at the time. “I’m alternating between extreme excitement as I’ve always wanted to try this and anxiety at all the unknown variables.”
