Full-time RV Travel

Our path to full-time RV travel was far from straightforward. We’ve tried part-time and full-time travel with various rigs since 2012. It’s now been four years since we last lived in a house and we can’t imagine going back. Here we share a candid account of what it’s like to travel full-time.

Why we chose a Casita Travel Trailer for full-time RV living

W

Back in 2013 we made our first attempt to live on the road full-time.  Thinking we needed as much room as possible to fit our house in to an RV, we bought a 30′ long travel trailer and the very thing we bought to live in turned out to be the very thing that killed our desire to live on the road.  That trailer was so large and cumbersome, it took a lot of fun out of the travel for...

What is dispersed camping, dry camping and boondocking?

W

There are various terms that are common in the RVing and camping community that we’d never heard of before we got our truck camper.  Today I thought I’d talk about a few of those terms that describe how or where you’re camped.  If you’re new to camping, whether it be with a tent or motorhome, it’s a good idea to think about what you need/want out of a campsite before setting out to find one.  Do...

Travel Interview with Watsons Wander

T

Tim & Amanda Watson have been traveling the country since 2012, living and working from their renovated 25 ft Airstream travel trailer.  Their method of slow travel, typically staying in each location for at least a week, has been a huge inspiration in our desire to travel full-time and experience the unique towns and cities across the country the way they have.  Their route, days spent in...

Travel Interview with Megan & Michael of Fresh Off The Grid

Megan & Michael are the creative force behind FreshOffTheGrid.com.  Undoubtedly one of the best, if not THE best camp recipe and lifestyle blogs on the internet.  From August of 2015 to September of 2016, they traveled the country in their Ford Focus hatchback reminding us that you don’t have to break the bank on the perfect rig to travel full-time.  I’m delighted that Megan & Michael...

We love to camp. We love our Four Wheel Camper. We love great gear that makes our camping fun, efficient, easy and comfortable. When we bought our Four Wheel Camper we were just getting started in creating a new lifestyle full of adventure. Outfitting our camper with the perfect gear was the icing on the cake that made camping more fun than any other mode of travel we could think of. All the...

Portable Folding Solar Panel: Zamp Solar

P

Last year we added to our solar supply with a portable folding 80 watt Zamp Solar panel that we got from Chris at Rocky Mountain Four Wheel Campers in Denver.  Our solar setup now includes the Zamp panel (seen above right), our DIY 120 watt panel that stows beneath the cabover of our camper (seen above left) and our 80 watt panel mounted to the roof of our camper.  Having a second movable panel...

Travel Interview: Nick’s 10 week, 10,000 mile road trip

T

There are countless travel blogs and forums these days where you can find all the advice you need on how and where to travel around the United States while living in your vehicle or RV full or part time.  What you don’t always find is the “why”.   I love learning about what motivates people to leave the comforts of home for the road.  I’m always insanely curious about what...

Shoreline Camping at Lake Havasu State Park

S

We spent the first two weeks of December at one of my favorite campgrounds, Lake Havasu State Park in Arizona.  While we prefer to boondock and keep away from bustling cities like Lake Havasu, my hometown draws us back to visit family and bask in the warm rays of the desert sun.  The beauty of this campground is that while it’s within the city, it’s shoreline location makes it feel...
