When my husband and I started full-time RVing, we knew nothing about RV living. We made it up as we traveled to all fifty states, constantly googling things like “how to RV” and “what is boondocking?” Meanwhile, we flooded the bathroom, took ice cold showers, and got stuck in the mud.

Now, we’ve been full-timing for over three years and we’ve learned the ins and outs of RVing America.

In this guide, I answer all of the most common questions we receive about RV living, from how to choose the right RV, to how we get mail on the road, to how to find free camping.

This guide is for anyone exploring the RV lifestyle and looking for RVing books to help make the transition easier.

In 2014, we quit our jobs, bought an old RV and head west.

We were living in Texas and working office jobs we hated while we planned our wedding. Then one day the idea struck: what if we kicked off our marriage with a fifty state honeymoon? Our friends and family thought we were crazy, but we knew we wanted more out of life than working jobs we hated in a city where we didn’t see ourselves living forever.

To make our fifty state honeymoon idea a little more feasible, Heath decided to work a job in each state as part of our documentary, Hourly America. He worked, Alyssa filmed, and we realized a few things…

After a year of living and traveling in an RV, we were in love with full-time travel.

But we had student debt and no experience running a remote business. Taking what we learned from filming our documentary, we started a video production business, a consulting business, and then a software business all from our RV as we figured out how to make money while traveling.

That’s when Heath started The RV Entrepreneur Podcast, sharing stories of nomadic entrepreneurs building mobile businesses. As we continued traveling, we upgraded RVs to a Winnebago Brave. We needed a rig that had a little more space for us to run our businesses, plus our first RV was over twenty years old and couldn’t quite take the miles anymore.

We spent a year out west, spent a year out east, and kept traveling as much as we could. Along the way, we shared our story on our blog, podcast, and even a few Youtube videos. That’s when Alyssa decided to write her first book, A Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV, which would teach other wannabe travelers how to start RVing full-time. The book was an instant best-seller, a testament to the fact that RVing is quickly becoming the coolest thing to do.

After spending the first four years of our marriage traversing America, we decided to broaden our horizons. And what better to start seeing the world than by RV?
