RV travel was our introduction to life on the road. When we began traveling full-time in February 2014, it was in a 2004 Tiffin Phaeton. That big, 40-foot diesel rig took us all over the country for nearly five years.
After a few months living out of our Jeep Wrangler and driving 2,000 miles through interior Mexico, we came back to the United States in March 2019 and purchased a 25-foot Winnebago View.
With our View, which was well-equipped for dry camping, we enjoyed overnighting at Harvest Hosts locations, visiting national parks way off the grid, and being more nimble than we ever could in our larger RV.
It was a wonderful RV life. Though we transitioned to global overlanding in early 2021, we look back on our RV adventures fondly and hope others can learn from our experience.

Our son Caspian was born into a life of full-time RV travel. We have a subcategory called RV Life With Kids where you can learn more about RVing with children.
There’s one more article we must mention: We Survived Our First Full Week of Dry Camping (And You Will, Too). We didn’t know it when we wrote this article in 2015, but dry camping in an RV changed our lives! The experience of living off-grid, which we eventually mastered, prepared us to drive around the world.
