Since international travel on pause, people have turned to explore their own backyards. From the U.S. to Canada to England, Europe, and New Zealand, people are getting in cars, campervans, and RVs and heading out on road trips. After all, it allows you to social distance while still getting outside!
Today, I’ve invited my friends Mike and Anne from HoneyTrek to share their RV tips and advice. They’re full-time RVers and will help you get your next RV adventure started easily and on a budget!
A couple of years back, the van life craze had everyone curious about rubber tramping across North America. Maybe you thought, Nah, I prefer my city apartment or jet-setting abroad.
Then COVID-19 hit. All of a sudden, getting out of Dodge with a house on wheels started to sound really good, didn’t it?
There is no doubt that RVing is one of the easiest and safest ways to travel right now. No crowded planes or questionable hotel rooms are required — an RV gives you the freedom to explore and the peace of mind of having your own space.
Over the course of our eight-year “HoneyTrek” we’ve tried virtually every style of travel — backpacking, house-sitting, small-ship cruising, backcountry camping, five-star honeymooning, etc. — but the day we rented a campervan in New Zealand, we knew this was our preferred mode of travel.
For the past three years, we’ve been traveling full-time in our 1985 Toyota Sunrader “Buddy the Camper,” from the Baja Peninsula to the Arctic Circle and 47 states in between.
We’ve learned a lot along the way and are excited to share what we think are the most important things to know before setting out on your RV journey.
