Let’s face it, RV living has a lot of pros and cons. While it’s convenient to bring your house with you wherever your heart takes you, it’s not all butterflies and roses. Just like a car, it requires maintenance for basic wear and tear. Having a mobile house means there most certainly will be mishaps of some sort. So, what do you do when you RV is in the shop?
There are pros and cons to sharing your life online. Usually, the pros out weigh the cons, but that’s not always the case. One of the biggest pros is that we’ve built an incredible community that is often very supportive. I love having the opportunity to share our life and our wisdom with you.

RV and tiny living has become trendy in recent years. In our chaotic world, people are craving simplicity. This lifestyle definitely brings that and so much more. But, RV living isn’t for everything. There are definitely pros and cons, but there are also some things every RVer should know before jumping into the lifestyle.
On yesterday’s post, I shared our 2021 Keystone Sprinter and the reasons we chose that model. We bought it brand new and haven’t done any renovations yet. Just like any sticks and bricks home, there are things we want to renovate in our RV to make it feel like home. In March, we will celebrate one year in our fifth wheel. I plan to start some minor renovations at that point. Here’s where I want to start.
It has been almost two years since we moved into our home on wheels. After the first year in our tiny travel trailer, we knew we needed an upgrade if we wanted to continue this lifestyle full-time. In March of 2021, we started searching for our next tiny home. It wasn’t a serious search, just looking what all was out there. Then we stepped into the 2021 Keystone Sprinter 3620LBH and knew it was going to be our next home!
Do you ever look at someones social media and think “dang, I want to do that!”? This is me daily when I see RVers in cool places. I’m not the type to get envious over material things. But waking up on the beach, in the mountains, or on a canyon. That will make me envious!
It’s easy to ask an adult the pros and cons to RV life, but what about the kid’s perspective? There are so many families out there who have chosen the RV lifestyle for various reasons. Whatever those reasons are, there’s a good chance the kids weren’t part of the conversation prior to making the lifestyle change. Our kids were one and three when we started this journey. Too young to understand what was happening. But now that we’ve lived in our RV for two years, it’s time to get our kids perspective on RV life.
Have you ever considered selling everything you have, buying an RV, and traveling the country? I definitely have. We may not travel the country, but we did sell everything to live in an RV. For the last two years, our family of four has lived stationary in an RV. While it isn’t always glamorous, we’ve learned a lot. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, but for the purpose of this post, let’s stick to the top five of each.
RV living has become increasingly popular over the years for many reasons. Some people have chosen the RV lifestyle out of necessity, like financial stressors or jobs.

We’ve been full-time RVers for almost two years now. Here’s why we chose to live in an RV full-time.
