There is nothing like coming home from the Farmer’s Market with a basket full of fresh vegetables and herbs especially right before Cinco de Mayo! Its one of my favorite times in our RV galley. Like an artist with a new art set, I love to set my palette of beautifully colored fresh ingredients and create a culinary masterpiece. One of them is my Chipotle Lime Pico de Gallo.

To be quite honest, we sometimes ask ourselves that same question but we always come to the same answer we did back in 2014. Though it was a challenging and downright scary time for us, we’d do it all over again. Here’s why, for the time being, RV living is so much better and easier than in our former sticks and bricks. Let’s see why.
RV hacks are inexpensive remedies by utilizing objects or ideas that are meant for other intended purposes in your motorhome or camper. These RV storage ideas are also creative ways to recycle items to organize your belongings, all the while, keeping your RV picked up and tidy.
Living or traveling on the road can be lonely. Especially if you’re an introvert or are apprehensive about meeting new people. But, it doesn’t have to be as challenging as it used to be. Forging friendships on the road can be fun. But, you just have to know where and how to make new friends.
Living in an RV with a very small kitchen, I’ve learned quickly what kitchen essentials are most important to cook our meals.
