- RV life is full of ups and downs. When something bad happens, take a step back and think about all the things you have to be grateful for.
- Go to events in the RV community to find “your people”. It’s so inspiring to be surrounded by people who want to work and live on the road. No one questions why you’re living this lifestyle.
