  1. Hello. I'm very curious to hear from any divorced parents regarding child custody as it pertains to full time RV life. I've been very interested in going full time for a while now. Unfortunately, it's very likely my marriage will be ending soon. We have a 4 year old son. It's also become clear that due to my work requirements and what my wife has mentioned, that post divorce, we'd be living in separate parts of the country and she'd likely be named the custodial parent. The end result of this point to me having my son for the summer and Christmas/Easter break on alternating years. I've done lots of searches online for the legal aspects of this and all I've really been able to find is hundreds of answers that can essentially be distilled down to "the best interest of the child." Does anyone have experience on how living a full time RV lifestyle can potentially negatively impact child custody. I (as many people might) envision my soon to be ex-wife saying that an RV is no proper place for a child to live, that it's not a safe structure to be confined in, and that she really would not be okay with us not being stationary and having a permanent address. I see it as a great opportunity to take my son to see sights, museums, parks, etc. Unfortunately, I have a feeling a court would side with the anti-RV argument on this. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

  3. Looking to go from Fresno, CA to Salem, OR. I have a 24ft 1977 class C with a Ford 460 engine. I’ve never driven further than Ventura, CA to Fresno, CA (about 4 hours up 99 to I-5). I was wondering what is the easiest route for a beginner, preferably easier on the old engine as well.
  4. I would just like to speak on my experience with i3 Mobile if that's okay - As someone who has been living full time in my van for the past 4 years, I have tried many internet providers. Some would promise unlimited but never truly be unlimited. Some of the prices and plans with other providers looked too good to be true and they were. The speeds slowed and the unlimited would throttle me, not to mention customer service sucked because half of the time you couldn't understand what anyone was saying. With i3, I've had a year now. I travel around the US in all different states and RURAL areas and have almost never had an issue. There was only one time my internet wasn't working and that was solved immediately. Customer service was swift and super nice employees. Speeds have never slowed down. And when they say unlimited - they really mean unlimited. It's never throttled or been cut off due to how much internet I have used. (and trust me, I use quite a bit with gaming, uploading videos, and multiple devices using at the same time) Overall- Yes - it may cost a little more than your "average" internet.. But to me, finding a truly unlimited, high speed 5G capable internet that WORKS in RURAL areas or with someone constantly on the move... IT'S ALL WORTH IT to me. I haven't been able to find this with any other company and I'm sticking to i3 and would highly recommend anyone who is in the same or similar living situation as me, just try it. (even if you live in a house that's hard to find internet for). They also have modems if you need one (bundle plans are your best bet.. Saves you money and they will replace for free if anything goes wrong) I have the Nighthawk MR5100 (blue plan bundle) and it works GREAT! Sorry it was so long but I wanted to make sure I explained my full experience and if anyone else has any experience with them as well. I found a coupon code that takes $20 off of your first month for any plan you decide to purchase. It works, if anyone would like to use it. Code: ireddit

  10. Moab Utah is a great destination for many reasons. Multiple National Parks, BLM boondocking, mountain biking, and endless offroading opportunities. North and south of Moab there are many great opportunities for dispersed camping, Overlanding is very popular in the area as well. We talk about the 4x4 trails and easter jeep safari. We hope you enjoy this video and find value.
  11. RVing in Baja is a great adventure, but RV trip planning can be overwhelming. In this video, Melissa and I go through what we did to plan for our trip to Baja California Mexico. RVing or Overlanding Baja California can be quite intimidating when you first start to look into this trip. We compiled everything you need to know to have a safe trip to Mexico. We start with three categories, Items you will need for your camper or RV. Proper documentation and paperwork that is required for Mexico. Also what to expect, the Mexico border crossing, Mexican military checkpoints, and a few other details. Like always we hope you like this video and find it valuable.
  12. RVing Baja California is a very exciting experience, but can you take a large RV to Baja? In this video, we break down the pros and cons of a large RV vs a smaller truck camper and driving to Baja California. After almost one month in Baja California, we are back. We had a great time in our truck camper boondocking on beautiful beaches. The whole trip we were thinking to ourselves, Would we take our 5th wheel to Baja? When we headed south to the U.S. border in a borrowed truck camper this kept going through our minds. With our experience, this video should help you make the right choice if you are planning on heading south to Baja Mexico.
  13. Santa Rosalia is a small coastal town located in Baja California Mexico. In this travel vlog, we drive from Guerrero Negro through Santa Rosalia eventually ending in Mulege and an incredible boondocking spot. Overlanding Baja California in a truck camper has been incredible. It allows us to be extremely mobile and flexible. We discuss some issues we would have had if we were RVing. Touching on an app called IOverlander that we normally don't use in the states. Different styles of travel called for different types of apps. We hope you enjoy these great boondocking locations we stay at!
  14. Seeking an RV lot or small recreational lot ( 1/4 to 2 acres) in the Texas Hill country for sale. Waterfront and utility building is a plus.
  15. Long term travel comes with surprises. In this RVing travel vlog we are headed south from Las Vegas NV to Tucson AZ. Along the way, our 5th wheel has a minor issue. Full time rv living brings its own problems and issues. As we prepare for a travel day we realized that our fifth wheel toy hauler has a flat tire. It's quite a disappointment because the trailer has brand new tires! This boondocking location in Nevada was littered with trash and we picked up a rusty nail. We hope you enjoy our journey to Tucson. Don't forget to subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLg659pamfs
  16. Just like the title says, we got kicked out of a National Forest! We had been RV boondocking in Southern California when a forest ranger arrived and told us to leave! In this video, we describe how we were approached while boondocking. Free camping is an awesome way to get outside but sometimes unexpected things can happen. Due to some recent fires in Southern California, the state closed a few National Forests for safety reasons. Unfortunately, we were boondocking in one of them! This is what we encountered while boondocking in California in our fifth wheel. Please make sure you subscribe! https://youtu.be/QHyCJCsLMGY

This RV has the Auto-Level feature, with six hydraulic leveler jacks. Disconnect from your truck, press a button, and it levels itself. It has large capacity water tanks -- 66 gallons fresh water, 78 gallons gray (two tanks), 39 gallons black, with all tanks having heaters for Winter use. The underbelly is fully enclosed and the underside storage is heated for Winter use. The RV is rated for use down to 0 degrees F. Two 30-lb LP tanks, but could accommodate 40 lb size.

The tires have been upgraded to Sailun all-steel radial S637 G 14-ply commercial-grade tires. Brakes and bearings have been professionally serviced every six months since new. We recently had some road damage that required LCI (original frame manufacturer) to conduct some frame repairs. LCI reported that the frame is now stronger and better than new, and they have provided a one-year manufacturer’s transferable warranty on the frame and suspension. Oh by the way, nobody has ever smoked in this RV, but we have two small dogs. Not to worry, my Spouse worked as a Veterinary Nurse for years and knows very well how to keep the RV clean with dogs aboard. Also, the Champagne-colored 2017 F350 Super Duty, Diesel, Crew-Cab, Long-bed, 4X4, Dually truck in some of the photos will be for sale as well, once we sell the RV. Contact me if if you want to talk about a package deal. The truck has a Ram-Mount Tele-Pole system that holds the TPMS, back-up camera display, an iPad for GPS, an iPhone, and a "Giraffe G4" obstacle height sensor, all for easy driver viewing. (I'm also a pilot, so I like the "cockpit" view from the driver's seat.) Contact me for any questions.
