Customizations are just one of the many things that draw people to the RV lifestyle. If you’ve ever done a DIY project in your home or hacked your apartment, you know how fun and rewarding it is. In an RV, everything has to do double duty; dinettes turn into beds, wall panels turn into side tables, captain’s seats turn into lounge chairs – just about everything has a purpose. RVers are always looking for ways to make life in an RV a little easier, whether it’s a smarter use of space, a better way to keep the rig clean, or an inventive way to beat the elements.

It’s late March and already hovering in the high 80’s an moving closer to that 90 degree mark. 100 degree days are just around the corner. So your a full-time RV’er, or maybe even a van dweller…how are you going to stay cool? Moving with the seasons is your best choice, but what are you going to do if you can’t move? Fortunately, there are steps you can take to be as comfortable as possible if you can’t move with the seasons. Let’s look at them: 1) Cover the windows with Reflectix. Buy a roll of Reflectix and cover the windows. Reflectix is two layers of a heavy duty aluminum foil-like material with bubble wrap sandwiched between them. It adds a small amount of insulation, but what it does extremely well is reflect the heat of the sun away from the rig. If you cover all your windows with Reflectix, your rig will be much more comfortable in both winter and summer. Here are four ways to install it: By far your best choice is to cut it a little large and simply press it into the window frame. It stays remarkably well. You can use two-sided Velcro to attach it. You […]
When RV owners hear the word “winterize,” it conjures up thoughts of protecting the RV plumbing system from freezing temperatures. The definition for “winterize” is to prepare something, such as a house or automobile, to withstand cold winter conditions. This is interesting because RVs are both a house and a vehicle. So, in addition to winterizing the RV plumbing system, we need to be concerned about preparing the RV’s interior, exterior, and chassis components for the harsh winter months too. With that said, the most logical place to start is to protect the RV plumbing system from damage, since this is the number one problem RV owners face during periods of freezing temperatures. If you don’t protect the RV plumbing system, any water remaining in the water lines or tanks can freeze, expand, and break fittings and lines. This can be a very costly mistake next spring.
Holiday shopping season is here! Excitement is filling the air as everyone we know is seeking out that perfect gift for each and every person on their list. Unfortunately, for those of us who live full-time in the tiny space an RV provides, the gift-giving season can be a stressful time. While gifts are appreciated, and we realize it is always the thought that counts, finding places to stow all of the newly acquired items after the holidays can be a difficult—sometimes even impossible—task when you are living in a few-hundred square feet. This often leads to an after-Christmas purge, and many times, items that aren’t useful or don’t fit well into the RV lifestyle end up being donated. If you are shopping for a full-time RVer this holiday season, be sure to keep this in mind and shop accordingly. There are many great gifts out there that are useful, fun, and compact—all you have to do is find them. That’s where we step in. Below we have put together a list of the very best gifts a full-time RVer could receive. Of course, not every gift is perfect for every person, but this list is definitely a perfect starting […]
The Christmas season is here, and those of us who are living in our RVs full-time have to carefully consider how we want to celebrate the holiday. After all, we are very limited as far as space goes, and squeezing a full-sized Christmas tree in the corner may not be practical—or in some cases, even feasible. So, how do we decorate and celebrate during the most wonderful time of the year? Well, there are many options. Throughout my travels I have met a variety of different kinds of people, and just as you’d find in a sticks-and-bricks community, each and every family had their own special way of doing things when it comes to Christmas celebrations. Based on what I have observed, it would seem RVers are just as creative in the Christmas celebration category as they are on any other holiday, making for some very fun, festive, and unusual ways of celebrating the season. Below I have gathered a list of some of my favorite RV Christmas decorations, traditions, and ideas to share with all of you. I hope this list inspires you and helps you decide on some great new Christmas traditions for your family to try out […]
