If you have made the decision to live in an RV, you will likely soon realize there are quite a few unexpected changes you must make in order to live this lifestyle. For instance, your showers must be cut short due to a low hot water supply, and creative storage is the name of the game when it comes to working with RV cabinet space.

Fortunately, th....

For some RVers, the whole purpose is to get away from everything, travel to remote locations, and "rough it." For others, the RVing adventure may include those things, but at the end of the day they enjoy taking a warm shower and curling up in front of their favorite television show or movie. For them, the motorhome is an actual home-away-from-home....

As peddlers of beds and mattresses will tell you, the average person spends about one-third of his or her life in bed. Typically—unless you spend the extra money for an upgrade—the standard issue mattresses found in most motorhomes are thin and less than comfortable. Manufacturers usually do this to keep costs down and avoid adding a couple of ....

Today we are going to talk about a very real problem for RVers everywhere: sleep.
 
You see, RV manufacturers have to work really hard to keep the weight of their motorhomes and trailers to a minimum. Unfortunately, this often means cutting corners. For instance, the stock mattresses in RVs are lightweight, but....

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.
 
If your trailer or motorhome is one of the models that doesn’t come off the lot equipped wi....

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....

Who said, “What you see is what you get.”? We bought our previously owned 2007 RV in 2013, and even though we love it, there are some things—mostly cosmetic—we would like to change. For example, we wanted stainless steel appliances; ours are black. We would prefer a single-basin farmhouse-style kitchen sink that doesn’t hold stains like o....

You love your home on wheels and you wouldn’t trade the view, but sometimes it is less than comfortable inside. It can feel like a greenhouse during a sunny, summer day and the arctic during a long winter night. This is why—in my opinion—insulating window blinds are essential.
