When our family started looking at RV’s we were overwhelmed with the number of options and the terminology. There is much to learn and we were very intimidated.
We found Living the RV Dream podcast. The hosts, John and Kathy Huggins do a great job of explaining what it means to own an RV. How to live in an RV. RV tips, tricks, and everything in between.
We listened to their podcasts for two years before purchasing our own 40 foot diesel RV in 2013. Their helpful advice was awesome. We never felt over our heads and when we had a question we wrote them and they typically answered the question on the next podcast. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
The Best of It's Kind!
If you are thinking of traveling in an RV for any period of time, let alone living in one full time, then you owe it to yourself to listen to this wonderful podcast. I have learned so much from John and Kathy that I can never thank them enough! I'll be so much better prepared when my wife and I hit the road in a couple of years.
Know their stuff
John and Kathy really have been living this lifestyle for years and they want to share their experience so that others can successfully follow in their footsteps. Their podcast is well thought out and for the most part smoothly executed. They are the helpful campground/RV park folks you hope you'll run into in your travels.
