Description

I believe everyone should travel more. It's just hard to afford the lifestyle. Or is it? After building our camper, our family set off on a National Park tour for over a year. We learned all kinds of tips and tricks for full-time travel and want to short cut the process for you. 

In this course I will talk about everything including:

  • Why travel is important (for you AND kids!)

  • What sort of RVs might work best for you

  • Relationships

  • Mail

  • Jobs

  • Insurance

  • Safety issues

  • Towing

  • Weather concerns

  • Our best tips and more 

My only goal is to make this an easier process for you so that you can enjoy the same experiences we are grateful to have had! 

Who this course is for:
  • Someone looking for a shift in their lifestyle
  • Singles, couples or families with or without pets who want to travel more
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about RVing
