This past May, Boondockers Welcome was invited to sponsor one of four "villages" at the inaugural RVillage Rally in Elkhart, Indiana. Members Larry and Rose Ann, amazing Boondockers Welcome members and ambassadors, attended the rally to host this wonderful seminar where panelists answered questions about boondocking in general, and Boondockers Welcome in particular. It's a long video, but a great way to get a real in-depth understanding about why our members, both guests and hosts, are so incredibly passionate about Boondockers Welcome, and why people say that it's actually changed their lives!

Buying your first RV involves a lot of decisions, the first of which will probably be deciding what kind of rig is right for you. While there are may different options, they can generally be divided into two different camps: Motorized (a.k.a. "motorhomes") and non-motorized (a.k.a. trailers and fifth wheels). Here's a quick rundown of some of the pros and cons of the two.
RVing can work for almost any budget. You can buy a brand new diesel pusher bus for half a million dollars… or you can buy a used pop-up trailer for $1000 and tow it with the family minivan. If you’re looking to get started RVing on a budget, then a trailer will definitely be your cheapest option, but if you don’t currently own something that you can tow a trailer with, buying a second hand tow vehicle may also be in the cards.
