David Lee, the RV Jedeye, got his nickname for his love of all things Star Wars (with the exception of Episodes 1-3) and his new-found love of RVing. As a solo traveler, he’s made a commitment to get out on the road twice a month—a true “Weekend Warrior.” The reason why he’s sharing his journey—to pay it forward. “I watched a lot of videos when I was thinking about getting my RV and renovating it, so I wanted to share and in a way say thanks to all those who came before me.”
In this episode, Sam talks to the RV Jedeye about RV renovations, RV cooking tips, and choosing what type of RVer you’re going to be. From part-time to full-time, there’s an RV lifestyle out there for everyone.

Choosing what type of RVer you’re going to be
The RV Jedeye says… “RV or RV not. There is no try.”
He says that if you want to get started in RVing, there is always a way to make it work. You have to decide what type of RVer you’re going to be. You need to think about things like:
- How often are you going to use the RV? (a few times a year, several times a month, or live in it full-time?)
- What size and length of RV do you want? (big and spacious or small and stealthy?)
- Are you going to buy new or do you want a fixer-upper? (do you want ready to go or are you willing to take time to make it how you want?)
When you decide what type of RVer you want to be, it will make all of the other decisions much easier and you’ll be that much closer to getting out on the road!

Thanks for being a RV weekend warrior. My husband is from Thomasville, GA. You guys are neighbors sort a speak. We currently own a Leisure Travel van since 2015 and we love it. The size is small about 25 feet. on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis. We’ve driven out to Vegas, the Black Hills and Wyoming. The goal is to live in it, but I want to be a minimalist.
Will you be making more episodes?
I love watching the Jedi’s videos!
