When I started researching living in a motorhome full time, my first thought was to look for RV living full-time blogs. I wanted to see how other people achieved this fantastic life, how they paid for it, and what trials and tribulations they faced.

For my research, I started with Pinterest. I know a lot of people think its social media, but its really a visual search engine. I searched for “RV Living Full Time Blogs” and came up with thousands of hits. I’ve listed my favorites below so you can benefit from the wading I did through all those posts! I've also documented my planning process so you can follow along with me, too.
My list is intentionally broad. I follow a variety of bloggers to get a variety of experiences and resources. Each blog featured here has specific resources to help others who want to get out on the road. They all approach living and traveling full-time a little differently.
This diversity helps me see what options there are. It also helps me see what challenges the writers of these RV Living Full Time Blogs have had and how I can avoid them in my own adventure.
One thing all these RV Living Full Time Blogs have in common is that none of these bloggers are retired or independently wealthy. They all work for a living in various ways. And each of them has found a way to make living and working remotely work for their lifestyle. Some travel a lot, others stay put for long periods of time.
Each one has a different approach, which helps inspire me to figure out what my approach is. Will I be self-employed? Will I keep my current job or find a new remote one? How often will I travel? What sort of RV should I buy? How much does it cost and how do I pay for it all? These blogs have helped me answer these questions (and have inspired more questions to go along with them!)
RV Living Full Time Blogs to Follow
Heath and Alyssa Padgett - HealthandAlyssa.com
Heath and Alyssa originally hail from Austin, where I’m currently living. They were one of the first RV living full-time blogs I found and I was fascinated by how they moved into an RV to save money and to pay down debt after getting married. They started in an old, adorable class C that they decorated and made a documentary about their travels. They’ve now evolved into well-known RV entrepreneurs, from writing a best selling book about living in an RV full time, to launching a podcast, and starting a production company.
They’ve been traveling since 2014 and their blog and book are great resources for anyone who is thinking about full-time motorhome living. You can follow along with them here.
Jason and Nikki Wynn - GonewiththeWynns.com
The Wynns are pretty famous in the RVing blogosphere. They started in a series of RV’s and now live full-time in a sailboat! They have a ton of great resources on their blog for living in a motorhome full-time and starting their own mobile video production business. They’ve been all over the world in their travels and have great guides and how-to’s on their blog, especially for going green and being sustainable while you travel. Read all about them here.
Becky Schade - InterstellarOrchard.com
Beck was also one of the first RVers I found to follow. She travels as a single woman alone with her teardrop camper and a truck. She started with a little Casita trailer and downsized even further to a Hiker Trailer. Her blog gives really great insight into traveling as a single person and is very open about the finances of her travel.
As a single female RVer, she’s more in line with what my reality will be. She’s also a bit in the minority as most full-time RVers you see tend to be married couples. I love seeing how independent Becky is and the challenges she’s overcome as a single full-time RVing woman. She’s been inspirational for helping me understand that I can do this alone. Learn more about Becky here.
Dan and Lindsay McKenzie - FollowYourDetour.com
Lindsay and Dan are another one of those aspirational couples. On their blog, Follow Your Detour, they explain the life-altering events that lead them to the travel nomad lifestyle, choosing to view their challenges as a ‘detour’ and making the most of it. They started by full time living in a fifth wheel and now live in a Class C. They’re even documenting their process of adopting a child! They’re a great resource for money questions, handling your marriage on the road, and general full-time RV living questions. Follow their detour here.
Camille and Brice - MoreThanaWheelin.com
At their website, More Than a Wheelin’, Camille and Brice document how facing the reality of buying furniture was the tipping point for their nomadic lifestyle. An excellent opportunity to see what full-time motorhome living is really like, their blog also has excellent resources for finding and maintaining remote work. They also dive deep into the emotional aspect of working and traveling full time. I highly recommend their blog as a great all-around resource for working and living remotely. They even have a free masterclass on How to Find Remote Work. Check out all their great information here.
What RV Living Full Time Blogs Are You Following?
Finding blogs of people already living full time in RVs are a great way to plan for your journey. I follow these bloggers and many more. I use Pinterest and subscribe to their email lists to get updates on any new information they have. It really helps for us new or soon-to-be full-timers in planning and preventing their mistakes.
I am continuing to find more RV Living Full Time Blogs to follow and be inspired by. I love seeing what has (and hasn’t) worked for other people in similar situations.
