From the RV batteries and battery monitor to solar panels and solar charge controller, our small Winnebago View Class C motorhome is now equipped for longer-term boondocking and off-the-grid camping! We no longer need to rely on or be plugged into electric pedestals to produce electricity. Check out our tiny motorhome’s maintenance-free solar and energy storage upgrades.
When we downsized from our 42′ fifth wheel to our tiny 25′ Class C motorhome, we also had downsize our kitchen and bathroom accessories. Even though there was absolutely nothing wrong with what we had, our kitchen tools and bathroom goods didn’t fit in our tiny cabinets, storage compartments or living spaces. So, what’s a girl to do?

As we completed our 5th year as full-time RVers or as they say in the RV community ‘nomadiversary’, I felt compelled to write about how our lives have changed. Here’s our candid view of RV Life: what we’ve learned as full-time travelers and some tips on how we deal with issues and circumstances that surround our RV lifestyle.
Quartzsite, in the past decades, has become a pilgrimage for traveling full-time RVers. The small, eclectic town draws hundreds of thousands during it’s tourist season in January and February. Quartzsite has become the Boondocking Capitol of the world. For some, its a one-and-done event. But for us, we find more cool places to see and things to do that keep our wheels pointed west on I-10.
If you’ve ever stepped foot into any RV toy hauler, you’re sure to notice how bland, boring and brown their interiors are. The decor lacks personality and zest. While I get that RV manufacturers are purposeful in their design concepts by trying to remain neutral to appeal to everyone, I still think they could try just a little bit harder to make the interiors more stylish and less masculine. Well, we made that happen to our former Heartland Cyclone toy hauler.
Typically, most RVers will tell you that going to Quartzsite is a one and done destination. Their reason for not returning is there’s nothing to do there…well, except one week in January which is what lured them to the sleepy little town. And even that, the popularity, allure and dynamics of Quartzsite has changed. However, so not the case for us! In the last days of 2018, we made our third pilgrimage to Quartzsite for different reasons.
Due to the state of our Country’s aging infrastructure and city water treatment facilities adding unhealthy chemicals, there is a growing concern about our Nation’s drinking water. And, adding in aging campground water systems loaded with contaminants and heavy metals, it’s no wonder the water tastes horrible and leaves spots on anything we wash. So, before hooking up our RV water hose to the campground’s water spigot, we connect it first, to our Clear Source Water Filter System.
Who better than those who are actually RVing to give great advice and suggestions on holiday gift ideas for RVers and campers!? In this segment, we went to several full-time RVers for great recommendations for RV supplies, entertainment, pet supplies and family RV gear!
