We launched our fulltime RV life the first time on December 26, 2017 with the goal of visiting the lower 48 states within 18 months. On June 18, 2019 we crossed the border into Nebraska – our 48th state – so we met our goal with 8 days to spare! Our first fulltime journey came to an end as we rented a house in Colorado for a year, but we quickly realized that we missed traveling so we got back on the road in June, 2020.
The first map on this page covers our current travels and the map at the bottom of this page shows our journey with our first RV. Every place we have stopped is noted on the two maps, including everything from Walmart parking lots or friend’s driveways to regular campgrounds and resorts. If you want any more details or our thoughts on any of the locations, feel free to reach out and ask!
Fulltime Again! 2020 – ?
We are currently fulltiming in a 2016 Fleetwood Bounder 36E Class A Motorhome flat towing a 2021 Jeep Wrangler and occasionally chasing behind with a 2013 Chrysler Town & Country. We love breaking up long drives with quick overnight stops outside of campgrounds and the onboard generator and a few other creature comforts allow us more comfortable boondocking in this rig so you’ll see quite a few more Walmarts, Cracker Barrels, etc.
In order for us to mark off a state on this map we have to spend the night somewhere in that state. While we have been through Missouri and a few other states, we didn’t actually stop for the night so we can’t count them yet. We’ll be back!
Our First Two Years Fulltiming | 2017-2019
This was our first foray into fulltiming, and RVing at all actually. We towed a 2018 Grand Design Reflection 312BHTS travel trailer with a 2015 Ford F350 and loved every minute of it.
Here are the numbers for our first RV adventure:
