Today we got a new neighbor in our Florida campground. It’s a nice guy who has been Full Time RVing for 20 years. Now he rides in style in his pimped out “Gypsy Hilton”. He knows a thing or two about being “Hot”.
We were talking for awhile and he said “You guys have to be the hottest couple in the campground!” I thought that was a nice compliment until he went on to educate me that it’s because I parked the RV with my awnings facing west in the hot Florida sun pounding directly on us, thus making us the “Hottest Couple in the Campground”! What you want to do is face east so in the afternoon you can go outside with the sun being blocked by the RV and the awning out so you can enjoy your time in the shade. Read the rest of this entry »

The Peace River is one of the premiere fossil hunting spots in the country. We were camping here for 2 weeks in Wauchula at the Thousand Trails RV Park and I kept seeing people sifting for fossils in the Alligator infested waters. I didn’t understand how awesome it was until one of my neighbors came over and shared with me that within just 2 hours they found around 50 fossils! They found shark teeth, camel bones, and even a Megladon fossil from the ice age! Then he offered to lend us their equipment. Game on!! Read the rest of this entry »
The question isn’t which type of RV is best, but which is best for you? When we first looked at buying an RV I made the common mistake of thinking that the different “Classes” of RVs meant that you had to have a specific type of drivers license. Luckily because of the internet I was able to do some research and I learned what they were before I headed to the DMV to upgrade my drivers license haha. You DO NOT need a special license to drive an RV. Below are the different types of RVs so you aren’t confused like I was. Read the rest of this entry »

When you live full-time in an RV, or even just enjoy the occasional getaway, you understand the importance of organization. When living in such a small space, organization is not only a desire it’s a must! Below is a list of how you can best organize your RV:
Bins, bins and more bins!

Yamping (Yard Camping)
Have you heard the Kacey Musgraves song: “My House”? It’s about bringing “My house to you”. Nothing beats a little Yamping (Yard Camping) at a friends house, your own, or a business.
There are so many reasons to Yamp. You may not have much time off of work and can’t get away long enough to go on a “real vacation”. You may be testing out your new RV or doing some maintenance. Maybe you have friends or family in town and need a place for them to stay. Or, maybe you are visiting friends or family and are Yamping on their property. Whatever your reason to Yamp, Yamping is a great way to spend quality time with the people you care about. Read the rest of this entry »
Let’s face it, a bigger RV will hinder you from going to certain places like big cities. Having a car to take you on day trips, or into the big city, is a great way to see and experience new places. One option is a Tow Dolly that pulls behind your RV.
When staying at RV Parks or Resorts you’ll see a lot of people with Class A and Class C RVs pulling cars with a tow dolly. A tow dolly is needed when the vehicle cannot be flat towed. Loading it up and taking it down is simple and just takes time to get use to. Once you get the steps down it can be loaded in less than 5 minutes. Read the rest of this entry »
