Parton and Dean often enjoy going on small trips in their RV in Tennessee and the surrounding states. While speaking to People about her husband in 2015, Parton talked about their vacations, and the happiness they bring to her and Dean:
"We like to get out in our little RV and just be simple. I love to read, I love to cook, I love to be with my husband. I put on my little comfy clothes – I call them my baby clothes – and we just relax."
