On September 15, 2016 we celebrated our One Year Nomad-iversary! We successfully survived one year of full-time RV living.
It has been an amazing year. We feel like we have visited more places in this one year than we would have in our entire lifetimes if we hadn’t decided to take this leap of faith.
States: MI, OH, IN, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, TN, KY, WI, MN, ND, MT, WY, ID, WA
19 States Total, plus Washington, D.C. and the Bahamas.
How Many Miles?
Truck – 18,000
Fifth Wheel – 8,750
What 1 Year of Full-Time RV Living Taught Us
In honor of our One-Year, we created several videos to answer some of our most frequently asked questions, including our RV life finances, how we plan, how we tow, regrets, learnings and the highlights of our trip so far.
Here are the highlights and low-lights of our first year on the road as full-time RVers. We saw SO much, and it still amazes us the number of incredible experiences that can happen in just one year of full-time RV living.

Motorhome vs. Fifthwheel Vs. Trailer
We obviously chose a fifthwheel, but that might not be the right choice for your full-time RV living. Here we discuss why we chose it, and what we saw as the pros and cons to other RV types.
How We Plan Our Travels
Do you book campgrounds a year in advance? Or, do you wing it an allow yourself flexibility? We discuss our planning style and HOW we determine the cheapest way to travel.
How We Move Our Home On Wheels
(without yelling at each other)
To someone unfamiliar with RVs (like we were at the beginning), just towing or driving an RV can be daunting. Here is how we move our fifth wheel RV from place to place (and save our marriage).
