On our first trip in our RV, we went to Texas to visit family. The western part of Texas is not known for its cold weather. In fact, it is not uncommon for residents to run their AC’s through Thanksgiving. In short, we did not expect to run into a snow and ice storm on the way back home.

The storm was big enough to have a name, Frona. We had plent....

Anyone who has ever had carpet knows what a pain it is to keep your RV floors clean. An older RV with carpet covered floors—and even one with hard floors—is likely to need new flooring at some point. This was the case with our 14-year-old trailer, so we jumped in and got the job done.

However, before we started the actual replacement process, we h....

It’s pretty amazing how some of the most mundane objects can end up having multiple functions. Take a pool noodle, for example. Initially meant as a flotation device, this long cylindrical piece of foam is so much more. To RVers, especially, it can be utilized a number of ways to aid in the comfort of everyday nomadic living.

As you learn the ins and outs of your RV, you are bound to make a few mistakes. We all do it, and considering the number of mistakes I’ve made so far, it’s a wonder we still have a trailer at all.

Making sure you have pure, good-quality water coming out of your RV's faucet can seem like a full-time job. While traveling, you probably fill your fresh-water tank whenever you reach a convenient source. Though lots of RV parks offer municipal water, many others provide water from reservoirs or wells located on the premises. Plus, if you only fire....

Ask any seasoned RVer, and he or she will almost certainly tell you just how useful a roof vent can be. Fortunately, most RVs come out of the factory equipped with one of these handy little fans. However, some are missing this feature.

We recently celebrated our one year anniversary of being fulltime RVers and I’ve got to say for the most part it has been pretty amazing. Of course, no lifestyle is perfect and all adventures have ups and downs. Overall, we do feel like the positive aspects far outweigh the negatives. Here are a couple of our least favorite things about RV life.

Perhaps the perfect invention, the composting toilet might be the fulltime RVer’s new best friend. Who is it good for? Well, like most composting options, it is loved by environmentalists. It is prized by those who grow their own food on the road. Plus, it’s a lifesaver for the boondocker who is concerned about having enough water. A dry compos....
