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.
