8 Big RV Mistakes We’ve Made

by | May 13, 2023

This is one of those blogs where I could attempt to share the 8 Big RV Mistakes We’ve Made in words, but I think this time it’s best that I let the video below share these events.

Regardless of those who are seasoned RV travels or if this is the first year with the new camper, we all have made mistakes. For us, some of these had minor consequences, others had it’s share of difficulty, cost, and in one case pretty stinky results.

So it just goes to show that even for for Joan and I as experienced, long term travelers, we’ve had a few dillies and thought sharing these 8 Big RV Mistakes We’ve Made would help you avoid what we experienced. And now that each of these have passed, you can laugh along with us that we survived each and we can continue to share that I Love RV Life.
