Keith Sims—plus his wife and three boys—spend 100 – 150 days every year on the road in their RV. He talks to us about how his wife talked him (a big man and retired football player) into getting an RV, using it to enrich his kids’ homeschooling experience, and being an African-American in the RV community.

Part-time RV life
The Sims family loves the part-time RV life. Spending time at their home base and out traveling gives them the best of both worlds. The kids can stay involved in the community back home and then the family can go out on adventures and tailgate in the RV. Keith says that once you have an RV, you can’t go back to traveling in hotels. You get so spoiled by having everything with you all in one place.
RVing has been a great experience for the whole family and it’s brought them all so much closer. The boys have gone from each having their own bedrooms to sharing a room in the RV. They love being together. Being in a small space isn’t a chore, the Soulful RV Family has learned that it’s a privilege to spend time together and have these experiences as a family. They highly recommend RV life to any families out there!
