Imagine packing up the kids, grabbing the dog, and hitting the open road in your RV. These families did it and are telling the tales. These are their Facebook pages. They will inspire you and capture your imagination as they draw you into their world. Enjoy.
Meet the Colliers
The Colliers are a fun family of six (and a dog!) living full time in a renovated 1973 Winnebago that they affectionately call “Willie B.” They roadschool their four children and rely on workamping to make money on the road. Their blog, meetthecolliers.com tells their story as it unfolds and it even has a handy FAQ section for common questions from those curious about their adventure. They started out in 2013 and are still going strong. Parents who RV with their kids will enjoy the tips on roadschooling, family life in an RV, and finding quiet time for mom and dad. They also have a very informative ebook on the Camperforce program for those who are interesting in taking on this challenging workamping position.

How I Wrecked My Life
This is the story of a family who came to the realization that they were not living the life they wanted so they gave away all of their possessions and became fulltime RVers. This page supports the blog howiwreckedmylife.com. While it appears the blog has not been updated recently, there are still some interesting stories and very informative posts in the archives. Part of the appeal of this page is that these are just regular people, a dad, mom, and son, and they are inviting you into their lives to participate in their journey. It is refreshing and real.
Soulful RV Family
Of the RV families here, I believe this is my personal favorite. They have an awesome story to tell and some great stuff to share. There is something for everyone here, whether you RV full time, RV on the weekends, or just camp out occasionally in your back yard. The family consists of mom, dad, and, count them, SIX kids. Granted, one is an adult and lives on his own, one is attending college, and another is 17 years old, so most of the adventures will consist of mom, dad, and the youngest three. Will the whole gang ever RV together? You’ll just have to read the blog soulfulrvfamily.com to see.
