Inspirational Travel Stories: Becoming A Full-Time RVer

Many travelers are leaving their 9-5 job to dedicate their time to a life of travel and adventure.

As an RV owner or an aspiring wanderluster, trading in the sticks and bricks home to live life on the road is certainly possible. We’ve gathered a few fellow full-timers to share some inspiration, and how they got started.

Rhythm of Our Tribe

This family of six decided to explore Australia after growing tired of long work hours, and no real work-life balance.

For 20 years, their life had become centered around their profession in the dairy industry, leaving little time travel.

After coming to the conclusion that family, friends, and health were the most important things in their lives, they set out to seek an opportunity that would give them that balance.

They began a 6-month long landscaping project on the weekends, perfecting their home to put on the market. Within a week of its listing, their house had sold, and they bought an Airstream Caravan to begin their journey around Australia.

To date, they share their travels and adventures around Australia. Personally, we follow along with them on Instagram, and share their latest trips.

Tails of Wanderlust

Like many, Cass began dreaming about her next vacation in the setting of her cubicle, and searching for new places to visit for a little vacation inspo.

When one search lead to another, she found many people who were once in a similar position. From bloggers to podcasters, and a some binge watching of the RV Entrepreneur Podcast, Cass decided to give the nomadic lifestyle a try.

By minimizing and selling her belongings, she was able to hit the road with her 4Runner and buy a 2001 Class C RV, which she soon sold after experiencing maintenance issues.

Determined to still travel, Cass decide to hop to a new AirBnB once a week, which she did for 6 months before buying an Airstream Basecamp.

Living the Airstream Dream, Cass travels the country with her dog, Jasper, and her cat, Napoleon.
