Planning your first RV trip? The RV Odd Couple share the mistakes they made when planning their first RV Trip and Tips for Newbie RVers.

After owning 2 RV’s, they share the different mistakes they made on each of their maiden RV voyages. Their first RV was a 2018 Sandpiper and their New RV is a 2020 Forest River Sandpiper. They mistakenly assumed the move between the two RV’s would be easy.

They thought, “How hard could it be?” But between the changes in technology, the long distance – cross country trip, getting sick on the road, and the false sense of security, their experience proves you can never over prepare for your first RV Trip.

When considering the RV lifestyle, it’s important to set the tone by making your first RV trip a success!

Who are we?

We’re the RV Odd Couple, and we sold our house and most of all our possessions to live in an RV, with freedom, independence and adventure. (with our toddler and dog). We documented the process to transition into full-time RV living with our family and experienced the RV travel mistakes that you shouldn’t have to. This channel aims to provide you with valuable trailer travel tips and tricks, RV life basics, and motorhome beginners tips. We also plan to upload some of our fifth wheel RV vlog adventures as we travel the country too! If you’re into traveling vlogs, RV country traveling, or want to start full time RV living on the right foot, join us as we take on the adventure of our lives.
