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.
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.
A couple years ago, we visited Joshua Tree National Park. We were forced to stay for a few days at a campground due to a storm and a short-term illness that forced us back to the pedestal. Trying to find a campground or RV park in the vicinity on Campendium, we found Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground.
What if I told you there’s a way you can park your RV motorhome or camper for the night at a select winery, farm, museum or golf course? Well, get ready to pour yourself a cold one or tee it up because we’re going to show you how we utilize a cool membership called Harvest Hosts!
Never in a million years did we think we’d being doing this thing called boondocking when we bought even our first RV. However, look at us now five years later. But it didn’t come without learning what to have and not have when we’re out there living off the grid in our fifth wheel. So before cold-starting your first boondocking experience, we’ve put together our recommended RV boondocking gear buying guide.
There’s seems to be a strange twist in recent trends within the RV community; especially with the full-timers. Several RVers who once traveled in big, bold and beautiful homes on wheels are now downsizing down to much smaller motorhomes and towables. And we’ve jumped on the bandwagon too! Come read why we purchased our Winnebago View 24D.
We admit, our very first boondocking debacle absolutely sucked! We were so unprepared and inexperienced that we failed miserably! Since, we’ve learned, practiced, and mastered it (and still learning!). Now, we seriously can’t think of any reason why we need to go to a park or campground especially now that we’re more mobile in our 24′ Winnebago View. Read why we enjoy boondocking in our RV!
Usually folks gather to celebrate the Christmas with their immediate families, however, we celebrated a little differently in 2017. We decided to spend some quiet time at Joshua Tree National Park and to take in the beauty of this National Park’s thousands of Joshua Trees, Cholla garden, Desert Lavenders and Ocotillos. But, we didn’t end up alone…
Recently we farmdocked on a friend’s property in Minnesota while visiting family. While filming for RV Nomads the movie in Wellington TX in May of 2018, we installed six (6) Battle Born GC2 12 volt lithium ion batteries for a total of 600 amp hours. We recently put them to their first good test and here’s our product review…
When I’m on a mission to find a solution, I’ll literally drive myself to craziness. And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past TWO YEARS! I’m talking about making French Press coffee in our RV while boondocking without sacrificing robust flavor for lots of water water to clean it.
