RVing advice from Life Among Pines

  • Remodel your rig to fit your lifestyle and make it your own special home.
  • Rent a rig before you buy one, especially to see how your pets will handle RVing. Some pets reeeeally do not like drive days. Put together a plan for how you’ll handle this.
  • Research like crazy before you buy an RV. The more prepared you are, the better!
  • If you’re going to travel full-time or for long periods, move slower to avoid getting burned out.
  • Cactus are great plants for RVing and are easy to manage on the road.
