Are you part of an online RVer community?
We’ve heard from many of our clients about forums and social media groups they’ve joined to support their travel lifestyle. These online communities are a great way to connect with other RVers, learn more about what you’re interested in (from boondocking to full-timing, from women’s groups to working-age RVers), and get travel tips. These groups can even connect you with like-minded travelers when you’re on the road, and they provide you with a unique opportunity to share your knowledge and help others considering the RV lifestyle.
Read on for our list of online groups you can join—and a big thank you to our clients for sharing their suggestions!
