Being a full time RV family and traveling across the country in a 33-foot RV was never on our radar. Not even close. However, traveling as a family often, homeschooling our children, making fantastic memories together, and seeing more sunshine every day WAS definitely on our wish list. So, how did we become a full time RV family?
Well, we came about it in a roundabout way.

You see, our family has always been a bit nomadic. If that is such a thing. Even with young children, we always seemed to have a bit of gypsy tendencies.
We have never owned a house, because it seemed too permanent to us. Instead, we would rent a house and move every year or two trying to find our ‘place’ and what was best for our family.
What really pushed us to sell most of our belongings and purchase an RV to travel the country full time, was the season of winter. The cold dreary winters in Minnesota were bringing our mental and physical health into the not-so-good zone every year.
My husband and I would both put on extra weight, stop working out, stop smiling as much, feel a lack of motivation to get out of the house, and overall just feel like all we were doing was WAITING for our next vacation.
So, in February of 2017, we decided enough was enough. We needed to make some big changes in our lives.
Tony and I went through what seemed like a long process of decision-making before we came about purchasing and traveling full time in an RV. Honestly, it was not long at all. The process only took us 3 months and we were ready to begin our journey!!
Here is what our process looked like :

To be honest it takes a lot of dedication to make the big change. The work it took to organize, research, purchase, and sell things was overwhelming. However, we were determined to make a HUGE change in our family's lives in 3 months time.
If you choose to take a little more time to get through the steps necessary to begin living your lives as a full time RV family, then it may be a lot less stressful for you.
The memories we are making traveling as a full time RV family around the USA are priceless. Traveling together and spending more quality time together has always been our dream.
Now, we are living it!
