...well, so far anyway.
|Checking the tires before leaving the campground.|
One of those basic be sure to do's that we leaned.
Before we launched on the road full-time, we did a LOT of research. Not just about various RVs, but the how-to’s and where to go and what to see.
YouTube became our friend, and here’s some of our favorites that we learned a lot from (and not in any particular order):
RV Texas Y’AllAs you may imagine from their name, a lot of great info about RVing in Texas. It's how we found some of the places we've stayed, like Jamaica Beach RV Park.
Long Long HoneymoonOne of the first ones we started following. Great tips in general, and specifically for Airstream owners, and generally fun to watch.
RV Education 101 – Mark PolkMark has probably one of the best channels for breaking things down in simple, easy to understand language for some basic things. (He's a retired RV Tech) When we have a how to question, he is one of the first places we check for info. He has also restored a couple vintage trailers and has documented the whole process.
Love Your RVRay is another favorite of ours. Easy, laid back approach and some great detailed how-to's and where to stay's.
RV GeeksThese guys really rock the video how-to's. Simple, clean, and very detailed videos on a variety of topics in their Class A motorhome
Trent and Siobhan (Everyday Family Adventure)This young couple is touring the country in an older motorhome with 5 (yes, five) boys. It's fun to watch just for where they go and what they do.
Less Junk, More JourneyNathan & Marissa are a young couple, with a preschooler, in an Airstream. It's fun following the where they go, especially through their 3-year old's eyes.
Traveling RobertRobert is in Miami, FL and shares his weekend and vacation adventures with us. Most of the videos we've watched have been about FL locations, and we've discovered some places that we'll want to be sure and see.
TechnomadiaThese folks have a boat-load of info. Yes, pun intended as they split time on land in their very cool bus conversion and on water as they cruise the "Great Loop" (Something they just began)
Seriously. They go over costs, mobile internet, solar and more.
Gone With The WynnsHave the fun of watching this energetic young couple is how much fun and excitement they share. They are currently full-time sailors (sailing a catamaran all over the place), but before that they were full-time RVer's and have some great how-to's, how-not-to's, travel info, reviews and more
The Motorhome ExperimentPaul and Lorena are a working couple that are also full-time RVers. Most of the videos are where they go. They've been interesting to watch and even rate the places they visit, ranging from Bucket List Item to Don't bother.
Keep Your DaydreamMarc, Tricia, and 3 teenagers in a travel trailer touring the country. Lot's of what to see footage.
So, some of these folks are in trailers, some are in motorhomes. And when it comes to "how to" do something...a lot of those RV systems are the same, thus one can learn a lot regardless on the unit they are using. Other items, like how to drive a motorhome vs how to back up a trailer...yeah, you,ll want to watch the right one for that :-)
Hope our list helps! (These links are provided for your convenience)
