    Wow, you have done an amazing job on your 5th wheeler. My partner and I are on the verge of picking up our newly built caravan. We intend on travelling 3 to 6 ,months each year. One of the things we are currently investigating is wifi on the road in Australia, so I was interested in your solutions in the US. I’m now going to read a heap of your blog posts. Love that you have your animals with you too.

      Hi Libby! Thank you so much! I am so happy for you, your caravan sounds like the perfect way to see Australia. We use Verizon for our wifi, we have a hot spot. But also coffee shops when we need really fast internet! I wish you two the best!

    You two are so fun! For realzies, I usually have a hard time watching bloggers because, well, just because, but you two? Love the dynamic and the laughter. 🙂

      Aw thanks Elizabeth! That means so much. We’re new to making and sharing videos and are trying not to be awkward or over the top. It means so much that you think we’re dynamic and funny. You’re the BEST!

    I am a fellow ‘Burgher myself living in Cali now, hoping to become a full time Airstreamer soon! Maybe we will cross paths. I hope to blog, app, podcast or at least text about my adventures. Your trailer looks awesome!!! Love it. Any advice on younger campsites that aren’t geared towards children or the older population? (Nothing wrong with either) Just wondering if there are other mid thirties, single people like me going to do the full time gig???

      Hey Rachel! We’ll definitely see you on the road soon. Let us know if we’re ever near you. We’re spending 4 months in CA this winter/spring. We keep our Instagram up to date with where we are. @188sqft

      Thanks for the kind words. Honestly, most campgrounds aren’t geared toward children or the older population. We tend to stay in state parks and national forests, and RV parks are geared towards anyone in an RV and not usually kids. We boondock a lot (dry camping for free). Check out Campendium.com for lots of free camping in the West. We live on that site!

      We’ve definitely met 80% retired couples, but we have met a handful of single people, mostly women actually. My advice would be to always introduce yourself to your neighbors. They’re usually super nice people and will invite you over for a campfire. If you have a dog, it makes it super easy to break the ice. You just “go out to walk the dog” and introduce yourself.

      See you down the road!

    Hi Mandy and Kevin!
    I am also a blogger and a full-time RVer… working on renovating my dog-nosed skoolie! Loved this segment of your Vlog. I have 2 chihuahuas and a 22 lb maine coon cat (impressed your cats can use such a small pan, I might add, LOL). I am inspired by your hideaway cat box cove and thinking of ways to incorporate something similar in my bus.
    Off to watch more videos and read your blog. Glad I landed on this one first!

      If I were doing it again, I’d put a little pathway into our basement storage so I could access and clean the litterbox from the outside of the camper. I’m not sure that would work in a school bus, but it might!
