When we first started full-time RVing, our biggest concern was how to find RV parks and campgrounds that would accommodate our RV fifth wheel toy hauler. However, now, we have a different concern. Trying to find places to park our RV due to the pandemic. But, it’s easy if you know what resources are out there and know where to look.
If you’re wanting to take your motorhome, fifth wheel or other camper boondocking or dispersed camping, it’s important to strategically plan everything for your RV boondocking adventure. From gray and black tank management, water conservation to grocery shopping and menu planning, we will show you how we prepare your RV for boondocking. This will take your off-the-grid camping experience to a whole new level.
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.
Most RVers will tell you that visiting 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 and enjoyed the town’s quirkiness.
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!
