Advice from Kevin and Mandy

  • It’s totally possible to live on the road. All you usually need is an internet connection.
  • You can always have a storage unit if you really want to keep some furniture and things for later. Don’t let that keep you from heading out on an adventure.
  • Search for answers online and you’ll find everything you need to know, from RV tips to renovation ideas!
  • Things are going to go wrong, but that’s just how RV life works. You have to keep a positive mindset about it.
  • Start documenting your travels. If you want it to be an actual travel blog, try it and commit if you like it. If you don’t want to make it into a business, that’s okay too. Make sure it’s fun for you.
  • Try boondocking. It’s amazing!
  • Don’t be afraid to learn new things along the way.

  1. Mindy Pulliam at the Meridian, ID Camping World was a great help when we needed to sell our Kit Road Ranger. What a great way to sell a trailer! It was a consignment arrangement and they even came to our location and hauled the trailer to the dealership. Mindy worked with our son to simplify the paperwork and it sold in less than 60 days. Thanks, Mindy!
