RVing Families You Should Follow

When we’re not going on bicycle adventures or travelling long-term in an RV with our kiddos, we like to be inspired to go on other trips. Travel is a way of life for us, not just something we do on vacation days.

Part-Time RVing: Need to Know

We recently went from full-time RVers to part-time ones. This transition didn’t come easily, especially to me. I’m a nomad at heart, and being on the road makes me extremely happy. The transition was made all the harder because we didn’t move back home—we’re temporarily living in a different city, stationary at an apartment that isn’t our sticks-and-bricks home and isn’t our home on the road, either.

Must-have Resources for Full-Time RV Living

Full-Time RV Living: Know Your Resources

It’s been roughly a month since our full-time RV adventure came to an end. During our trip, we had access to some awesome resources that made things a little easier. With these, we were able to check out places to boondock, dump our tanks, and more. There’s not a lot here, but what there is, is incredibly helpful.

Our favourite campgrounds

During our 9-month RV trip with our 3 children, we did a lot of dry camping—one of the many ways we were able to afford the trip.

We also stayed at some state and national parks, and we chose some private campgrounds as well. Here are our favourite campgrounds from our adventure, in no particular order.

Free Overnight RV Parking: Do’s and Don’ts

Boondocking is one of the many ways to save during your RV adventure.

Unfortunately, some people abuse the system, and ruin it for other RVers. While free overnight stays in your RV are super awesome, it’s important to remember some basic etiquette. Here are the basic “rules” we follow when overnighting at free spots.

There are so many awesome reasons to visit a library… to read of course, but there’s more. Here are some of the reasons we loved visiting libraries during our RV adventure:

Free Overnight Parking for RVs across Canada and the USA

Free overnight parking for RVS

A lot of people ask us how we could possibly afford a year on the road. Not having debt and saving up helps, but so does being resourceful when it comes to life on the road. Not staying at campgrounds every single night certainly helps to keep the budget low.

Pros & Cons of Full-Time RV Life with Kids

I absolutely loved our nine months of full-time RV travel. If it were up to me, I’d sell everything and hit the road permanently. There are many aspects of full-time travel that are appealing to me, but of course there are downsides to everything. So here’s a post about the pros and cons of full-time RV travel with kids.

How We Afford Full-Time Travel with Kids

Lots of people have asked us how we can afford to travel. We were asked this question back in 2008, when we went on our North American Swing Road Trip, and back then we didn’t have any kids. I think people are even more curious to know how a couple with three children can hit the road on only one income. Here’s the low down on how we do this.

Living in an RV with Kids: What It’s Really Like

Full Time RV Family

For the last nine months, our family has been living in an RV—less than 400 square feet for five people to share. Living in an RV was the most convenient way for us to go on our family adventure travel year. It meant we could have our house with us wherever we went. We could drive, cook, shower, teach our homeschooling lessons, and even watch movies, all in the same vehicle.
