If you’re thinking about packing it all up and hitting the road full-time in an RV, one of the best ways to do your research is to read as many full time RV blogs as you can.
You’ll not only get a peek into the lifestyle but also learn valuable information about everything full-time RV living entails.
When we decided to full-time RV, my weekends were spent watching full-time RV YouTube channels, as well as reading RV travel blogs. I wanted to know what this lifestyle was like, how to best organize the space in our travel trailer, as well as any and all RV hacks I could learn.
I wanted to be as educated as possible as a newbie RVer.
Through some Googling, getting involved in full-time RVing Facebook groups (we highly recommend this one) and blogging conferences, I’ve found/met some fantastic people behind some of the best full-time RV blogs around. We hope you find this list useful as you embark on this exciting lifestyle.
7 Full Time RV Blogs You’ll Want to Follow
I went back and forth between putting TREKKN first or last or in the middle of the list. As you can see, I decided on the number one spot. 😉
Although we’re not full-time RVers anymore, we’re taking everything we learned and did and are pouring it into TREKKN so that others can have a wealth of information at their fingertips.
We also want to share what it’s like going from an RV lifestyle back to suburbia. We’ve had quite a few questions about this transition and we’ll get to answering those soon.
And if there are ever any topics you’d like us to cover that we haven’t yet, please let us know!
Camille, from More Than A Wheelin’, was one of the first full-time RVers who ran an RV travel blog that I met. We met at a blogging conference and were in the same discussion group together.
She is a wealth of information and considered the go-to source if you want to know about how to make money while traveling. She writes about remote jobs and even has a course called Remote Work 101, which has helped travelers find a job they can do from anywhere.
Remote work is a very big discussion in full-time RVing Facebook groups.
Not everyone has built up a remote income quite yet and they desperately want to know how to get there so they can experience the freedom it brings. More Than a Wheelin’ will be a resource you’ll be glad you found.
If you’re curious about how we were making money and were able to travel full-time, you can read about it here.
Have you ever interacted with someone online or watched a video of theirs or read a blog post and thought to yourself ‘these guys are the real deal’?
That’s how it was for us with Heath and Alyssa.
They run the Facebook group we recommended above called The RV Entrepreneur, have a podcast with the same name, run a successful RV living bog and Alyssa wrote a book called ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV: Everything I Wish I Knew Before Full-Time RVing Across America.’
Needless to say, they’re busy.
And they’re busy because a) they’ve lived in an RV for over four years before it became trendy, figuring out how to make money on the road as they traveled and b) they have a helping spirit.
Heath even hopped on a phone call with Todd once to help him talk over some business topics. There was nothing in it for him, other than the satisfaction of helping others.
Oh, and they’re expecting their first baby! Congrats you two.
Eric and Brittany, from RV Wanderlust, were the first full-time RV couple we met in person. I was scrolling through Instagram one day and saw that they were in Austin, which is where we were living before hitting the road. (And now we’re back!)
So I sent them a message asking if there was any way they could meet up for lunch or dinner. They kindly said yes and we met at The Soup Peddler, a restaurant you gotta visit if you’re in ATX.
We asked them question after question after question about full-time RV living. They answered them all and also gave us some good advice.
We also got to meet their son Caspian, who is known in the RV world as #babynomad and he is a cutie! All he knows is RV life, so if you’re curious about having a baby and raising a baby while RVing, they’re a great resource.
Also, they’re about to leave the RV life behind and are hitting the road in their Jeep! You can follow their journey of 13 states, 11 months and 2 countries on their Facebook page or their Jeepsies blog.
I’m always amazed at couples who travel with younger kids. When I look back on our years with little ones, I can’t imagine navigating everything while living in an RV and traveling full-time!
But there are families who travel with four or more youngsters and they absolutely love it. Sure, there are hard days but that’s going to be the case no matter who you’re traveling with.
Craig and Bryanna, from Crazy Family Adventure, travel with four kids and a dog and have been doing so since May of 2014. They share fantastic tips on fun adventures with kids in some of the top U.S. destinations, as well as Canada and Mexico.
They’re also a great resource for how to make an income from several streams of income while traveling full-time.
If you’re thinking about full-time RVing with kids, be sure to visit their blog, watch their videos and soak in all the information they have to share.
Marc and Julie, from RV Love, have been traveling full-time in their RV for four years and have traveled to all 50 states.
Their mission is to help you hit the road with their blog, videos, RV Success Schoool courses and a new book that just hit the shelves titled ‘Living the RV Life: Your Ultimate Guide to Life on the Road.’
I love their story about how they were first able to hit the road via RV and earn an income. Marc worked virtually for a company, holding down a regular 9-5, 40-hour a week job, all while living in and traveling in their RV.
Julie was the behind-the-scenes person of RV Love, writing blog posts, filming and editing their videos, posting social media content and interacting with their community.
Eventually, Marc was able to quit his job and join Julie creating content for RV Love. You can read more about their journey here.
RV Love is a fantastic resource for all the ins and outs of RV living. They candidly share the highs and lows of the RV lifestyle, in hopes to help you in your journey of living this lifestyle.
Regardless of if you live in a house or an RV, you have to make an effort to stay fit. Although we did a lot of hiking while traveling full-time (which is our favorite way to exercise), there were definitely stretches where we weren’t getting much exercise.
There were times we had to take breaks from hiking because, well, we’re getting old I guess and sometimes you need recuperation time after a long, grueling hike. 🙂
When I look back on our time on the road, I really wish I would have made more of an effort to get fit.
The Fit RV is the perfect resource for topics like no-equipment bodyweight workouts, national gym memberships for travelers (it does exist!) and what it’s like traveling in a Winnebago Travato.
Do you have any favorite full-time RV living blogs? If so, we want to know what they are! We’d love to add to this list and go beyond just seven blogs, so if you know of one that’s been helpful to you or you have one, share in the comments.
Julie Bonner is one-half of the TREKKN team. She specializes in helping you whip up delicious meals in your tiny RV kitchen, as well as RV organization tips and helping fellow RVers make their RV feel like home. Her favorite RVing spot is in Banff National Park in Canada where yes, the water really is that blue and the people really are that nice.
