Advice for RV Newbies – Our First Year In Review | RV Life



Check out our tips and tricks and advice for RV newbies. 1 year ago we didn’t know how to RV. If you’re new to RV life, we’ll share with you the lessons learned after 3000 miles, 10 trips and nearly 40 days camping with our travel trailer.

Now that we earned our weekend warrior status, we’re working on getting ready for our full time rv life. If you’ve got any tips or tricks for us, please share them below! If you’re new to the RV life, share your biggest fears about hitting to road with your travel trailer or 5th wheel!

    New here on your channel. Oh what fun RVing is and the lessons learned can be hard knocks at times. In retrospect are great memories most of the time. Looking forward to your travels.

    I love your channel name & how you came up with the new. Yes when you are staying where the park includes power space heaters are a money saver. We learned that when staying in ND this past Oct for the beet harvest. The next state were hitting up is Arkansa. Love the story about getting over your nerves pulling your rig into a gas station. We actually avoid the truckers gas pumps cause of the bigger hold they put on your debit card vrs the car pumps at truck stops.

    Great video! Congrats on your first year. The main thing I learned in our first year was to take my time. Anytime I got in a hurry, I either missed something or made a mistake. Looking forward to seeing more of your journey…and your new puppy!

    What a great channel! We are so glad we found you! We took a similar trip to Canada the summer of 2019 and recorded it on our channel. We also left from Missouri and went to the U.P. of Michigan. We went east to Quebec instead of west. We hit the red button and can't wait to follow your adventures. 🙂 I love the ideas on this video! I think everyone who is relatively new to this lifestyle should watch this. 🙂

    I came back to finish watching and found that you gave some great advice. I will have to go back and check out some of your earlier videos. I can't even remember what it was like starting out because we have been camping since I was quite young, but we are never to old to learn new tricks, so thanks for sharing.

    Hey! New friend here from BluWave live stream. You learn fast when it's difficult. I've ran out in one day too! I carry 2 bars, I've done that too! Yeah, gas stations are a challenge, we have been in some really tight spots. Yes, take your time and remember, everyone is learning. Have fun! Thanks, lots of good tips, looking forward to season 2.

    Hey Scott, could you explain the commercial gas card a little more. We'll be travelling through the states in March and I am planning the trip now and getting everything together. Thanks Dave

    Great video. I also recommend talking to other campers at the campground. They have probably already experienced and solved the issue you have. Join the Facebook page for your camper. Triple check everything. Take your time. Have realistic expectations. Have fun. Laugh. Enjoy the time together.

    Great video you guys! Lots of helpful insights in there 😊 One thing we have learned, is to always make sure you put your trailer 7 pin cord under the tongue and bars to keep it from getting severed. Luckily for us, it was a easy $30 Amazon fix 😉 We look forward to Season 2!!! So exciting 🤗
