In this episode, we give you our move day and road trip tips on keeping your kiddos (and yourself) happy.  Our road trips in the Jeep can be a couple of hours to all day in the car. Many of our road trips are going to a Jeep trail, so that’s even longer in the Jeep. Our move days can be from an hour to five hours. We have even had a couple of nine-hour days, and that’s a long time driving in an RV.


We would love it if you helped us by sharing the podcast with your friends and family.

First, I would like to point out that we try to stay at spots anywhere from a week to a month in one location. We are not moving the RV every day. To be honest, we don’t have a lot of one-week stays.

Our goal for move days is to keep the move less than 4 hours days.  We use RV Trip Wizard and they have a great tool that allows you to put in how far you would like to go and see a radius on the map. Our settings allow us to choose between 100, 15, and 200 miles.

RV trip Wizard is one of our best road trip tips.

Tony and I love to listen to books as we drive. Here are a few of our favorites. 

We bought the DVD players on Amazon. I’m linking to them even though it says “Currently Unavailable” because I’m sure it will be back. I would recommend finding one that you can watch different movies or the same movie at teh same time, the girls use both options equally.

Camco 41541 Portable Travel Toilet – 5.3 Gallon, White – We love this toilet so much! Just use some of the RV septic cleaner that you use as your main cleaner in this toilet to keep the smells down.
