We are retired military empty nesters with our own 24-foot sprinter van. We lived full-time in our sprinter van for about 8 months mainly boondicking in Bureau of Land Management, Wildlife Management, and Forest Service areas. Visited several national and state parks from West coast CA to east coast FL. We understand the ups and downs of RV lifestyle and "decision fatigue" that can set in when traveling to unknown places every few days.
We do a lot of last minute trips year-round and also rent out our home on Home Exchange, AirBnB, etc but feel free to give us a shout and see if we can accommodate you.
Happy travels!

Quick stay, good tips

Very nice couple, who had lots of tips to share about boondocking and travel. I hope to cross paths with them in the road!

Wonderful hosts!

Such a wonderful stay! We were only passing through, but wish we could have stayed another night. RVAdventure were so friendly and welcoming. They gave us great suggestions for where to visit nearby and when we came back we had a nice conversation outside their house with some drinks. They recently finished a journey similar to what we're hoping for, so they gave us some great tips that we might try to implement. We'll definitely be back if we're in the area again!
