11 Ways You Know You Have Fulltime RV Kids

11 Ways You Know You Have Fulltime RV Kids

These are just some of the ways we know we have fulltime RV kids. They've taken this lifestyle in stride and have made it their normal. (FYI, that's marker all over Knox, not some sort of weird rash that only fulltime RV kids would have) 1. They wake up in the morning and ask "What city are we in, Dad?" True story. My 4 year old asked us this one morning and all I could say was "You are here, man." Blew his mind that day. 2. They have the smallest house of all the people you know, but also…

Impromptu Oil Change

Impromptu Oil Change

So, we’re cruising down the *ahem* beautiful highway of West Virginia (no offense WV peeps), and all of a sudden my oil pressure drops really low and the light and buzzer on the dash start going off.  A few seconds later the pressure returned to a more normal number and light/buzzing stopped.  Whew!  I was hoping my “ignoring things and they’ll fix themselves” policy would work!  Unfortunately it didn't as the light and buzzing happened a couple more times going up and down the hills on the highway.  We were getting close to our destination for the night and since the…

Grocery Shopping, Meal Planning, Cooking, And Eating In An RV

Grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking, and eating in an RV

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “What do you guys eat when you are living in an RV”? The funny thing is we eat pretty much the same things we ate when we lived in a house. Our RV has a convection oven/microwave unit and we have a gas range. That is pretty much all I need to make our food. Yes I miss our large stove from back home but I was never that big of a cook to begin with! When we lived in our house I would grocery shop once every 2 weeks…

Rainy Days In An RV

Rainy Days in an RV

Rainy days in an RV can be interesting to say the least! The amount of space we have is limited and everyone likes to be close to me and each other - so it isn't like people disappear to their bed to read a book or watch a movie by themselves yet (I know the day will come!). So here is my take on Rainy days: 1 - I actually enjoy them! The reason being everyone is contained in one place. When we are outside they are all over the place, across the road, in other campsites, they want to…

RV Laundry

Laundry, Laundry, Laundry . . . the never-ending task! With 6 people in the family we have a decent amount of laundry. At the house I had a really nice front loading washer and dryer. But it never felt like I could get caught up on the laundry! In the RV I have a mini Front Loading washer/dryer (it is an all in one unit). When we first bought the RV we though we were going to take the washer/dryer out so that we could put long bunk beds in. I am SOOOO glad we didn't!! Here is a picture of the…
