RV Tip: Collapsible Kitchenware

RV Tip: Collapsible Kitchenware
I admit: I took downsizing a bit too far when we moved from our suburban 4-bedroom house into our Heartland Bighorn.I gave our largest mixing bowls away, thinking I'd no longer be cooking for a crowd, or even more than just the two of us, during this full-time RV living gig.But ya know what's a really big deal at RV parks? Potlucks. I think we're i...

Product Review: RV SnapPads

Product Review: RV SnapPads
"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!" -Marilyn MonroeWhile attending a few Heartland Owners Club Rally's, we were intrigued by a new product out there. We noticed on quite a few Heartlands, these rubberized, octagon-shaped "shoes" that attached to the underside of their leveling jacks. After speaking with quite a few Heartlan...

If You Live on the Road in an RV, Where Exactly is 'Home'?

If You Live on the Road in an RV, Where Exactly is 'Home'?
As RV owners, we've all heard, seen, bought, or been gifted with something bearing the phrase "Home is Where We Park It." Makes for a popular hashtag too, and I count myself amongst the many who use it frequently on our Twitter and Instagram accounts.For those of us who took the additional step of selling our sticks-and-bricks houses to live full t...

RV Liberty Explore the Rhyolite Ghost Town

RV Liberty Explore the Rhyolite Ghost Town
When we think of what a 'Ghost Town' is, we typically envision abandoned, Wild West-like, faded and stained wood buildings on a packed dirt road, dividing them in two rows. We think of what we've seen in western movies; cowboys with six shooters holstered on their hips, horse and buggies traversing the road in front of the jail, saloon and mercanti...

'Destination Dentistry' In Mexico

'Destination Dentistry' In Mexico
Our first experience with "destination dentistry" in Mexico:"Going to the dentist, eh? Where?""Mexico. Right across the border in Nogales. It's a thing.""Oh. <pause>. Wait. WHAT???"I'm guessing we're not the only RVers who have participated in a conversation like this. I know we're not the only ones who have stayed in a campground, RV park, o...

RV Recipe: Shrimp and Spinach Garlic Herb Béchamel Sauce on Penne Pasta

RV Recipe: Shrimp and Spinach Garlic Herb Béchamel Sauce on Penne Pasta
I love experimenting in Liberty's galley. Since full-timing, this is my outlet where I can let loose of my creative juices. Before we sold our former home in Kentucky, I had a killer craft room but now Liberty's galley is my place to create. In fact, when we traded our Heartland Cyclone toy hauler in for our Landmark in late 2015, my big...

RV Recipe: Guacamole on a Hole-y Roll-y

RV Recipe: Guacamole on a Hole-y Roll-y
Have you ever been stumped on what to have for lunch but you're so 'meh' on slapping a few slices of ham or turkey and cheese between two slices of bread with a little spread and call it a meal? That was us just the other day. It was cold outside and I wanted to make something hearty yet healthy for lunch. I didn't want to chow on 'usual or boring'...

Our Bighorn Gets A New 5th Wheel Pin Box

Our Bighorn Gets A New 5th Wheel Pin Box
When Tim said, "Honey, I'm gonna order a new kingpin," my mind went to drug lords and crime bosses.I should have known he meant something RV-related. I swear sometimes it feels like that's all we buy. For those who are unfamiliar with fifth wheels, the pin box and kingpin assembly are located on the "nose" of the trailer. The pin then locks into a ...

RV Cooking with Kelly

RV Cooking with Kelly
​I enjoy cooking. Baking? Not so much. I'm no gourmet chef but we don't go hungry.When we purchased our Heartland fifth wheel I had never used a convection oven (a microwave/convection oven was standard in our 5th wheel) and was actually quite terrified at the thought of learning to use it…let alone actually using it! Thankfully, when we picke...

2PS Top 8 RV Parks And Campgrounds
I tend to be a list person. I have a 'To Do' list beside me at all times. If we travel somewhere I make a list of what to pack. I make a list of the Christmas gifts we purchase. I keep a list of what's in our basement. You get it…I'm a 'list person'.I even have a 'list' of where we travel throughout the year. That particular list is more of an itin...

Storage Matters In An RV

Storage Matters In An RV
Whether you're a Weekend Warrior, Any-Timer, Part-Timer or Full-Timer, like us, the amount of storage in your fifth wheel trailer matters. More than likely, when you were shopping for your camper, you took into consideration the amount of storage each floorplan you looked at had…just like we did. I fell in love with our Heartland Landma...
