Not all RV camping is created equally. Deciding what option is right for us has involved a lot of trial and error. There are SO MANY options – from boondocking alone in the woods to RV parks with all the amenities, and some unforgettably strange places in between. Sometimes it is a struggle to manage our RV camping budget with personal comfort, but it is possible! Now that we’ve tried out every type of RV camping out there, we’ve put together our top considerations for each and what we think works best.
Standing in a kaleidoscope forest, breathing in the freshness of the cool air and listening to the light rain slowly drip through the branches above, as we watch rust-colored leaves dance around us before delicately landing on the wet ground. Moments like this are why hundreds of people drive for days to experience the colorful adventure of chasing fall in Vermont. And we aren’t ashamed to say, we totally drank the maple-flavored Kool-Aid.
On one hand, it seems like just yesterday that we got in our new rolling home. But on the other, it feels like years have gone by since we first started out. We have somehow crammed in hundreds of experiences, places and lessons in just six months. We must say, spending the last three in Canada was wonderful. And our time there allowed us to really focus on what we like and don’t like about the RVing lifestyle. (Spoiler: Everything we don’t like is self-inflicted, go figure). In this RV life recap, we’ve included some of our favorite places as well as monthly overviews of what has gone on between gorgeous photo opps and fun adventures.

Canada’s eastern-most provinces are each bucket-list worthy destinations. There are so many amazing places and people that make up New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. But, we couldn’t decide on just one province, so we embarked on an epic nine-week Atlantic Canada RV road trip. And it was more beautiful, exciting, rejuvenating and life-changing than we ever could have expected.
There are certain places that just feel electric, like the pulse of humanity is vibrating through the streets. A strange magnetism pulls you there that you can’t explain. You just need to be in the presence of a place so alive – a place filled with history and possibility. We only spent 24 hours in Quebec City, but it made a lasting impression on us. And even though part of our time there went horribly wrong, it will always be one of our favorite places.
