RV Generator usage has become a hot topic amongst RVers and campers; especially when boondocking, dry camping or parking overnight within close proximity to other RVers. The debated questions are: “When and where is it appropriate to run your RV generator?”
When we started full-time RVing, our biggest concern was how to find Campgrounds and RV parks that would accommodate our RV fifth wheel toy hauler. Now, several years later, we’ve mastered how to locate great campsites through several different resources.
You need to think twice if you’re going to park your RV in a Walmart parking lot to catch some Z’s. Walmart overnight parking is coming to an end; even for stealth campers! But, for what reasons is Walmart rolling up the welcome mat and telling RVs, Vanlifers and even car campers to go take a hike?
We thought things couldn’t get any better than living full-time in our beautiful Heartland Landmark fifth wheel. However, our decision of downsizing RVs allows us more nomadic adventures! And, our much smaller RV gives us access to places we could have never fit with our fifth wheel. While yes, we do miss the comforts of our former fifth wheel, downsizing RVs gives us many more opportunities to explore and visit off-the-beaten-path places in our tiny Winnebago View Class C motorhome.
RV memberships are an absolute must if you’re going to hit the road with your motorhome or camper! These type of RV clubs provide many discounts on campgrounds and RV parks, tires and RV components, RV trip planners, RV education courses, health insurance options for nomadic RVers just to name a few! Not only do these RV memberships save you money, but they also have hidden perks within the club memberships.
As full-time RVers, most of us have heard the parking terms boondocking, moochdocking and lotdocking however, there’s also another called Farmdocking. Farmdocking is when Farmers (or Ranchers) permit an RVer to park on their farm in lieu of helping with chores. Payment is in the form of work.
