The Boston Herald has dubbed this year “the year of the RV,” claiming that in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the recreational-vehicle will serve as the ultimate social-distancing travel method of choice.
While we have been ingrained in the RV Life since 2015, we realize many others are just starting to look at this mode of travel, or maybe have had plans to go full-time RV accelerated as jobs have become more remote-friendly.
This is one of the reasons we’ve partnered with 4 other full-time RVers to launch RV Masterclass – an RV education platform to answer all your RV newbie questions you didn’t even know to ask about buying an RV, boondocking, transitioning to full-time RV life, and more.
RV Masterclass Signature Courses
RV Masterclass currently offers three signature courses. They offer each class individually and offer a bundle package.
- RV Buyers Bootcamp: This comprehensive course teaches you about RV-types, floor plan advantages, and negotiation strategies. From buying new to restoring a vintage RV, six instructors share their personal experiences and lessons learned.
- Boondocking 101: We’ll teach you the fundamentals of free camping. Then we’ll dive deep into step-by-step training on how to find the best boondocking sites and the safety strategies we use.
- Preparing to Full Time RV: This is the ultimate guide to becoming a full-time RV traveler. All five instructors have personally made the transition to full-time RV life and teach these lessons with real-world solutions. Providing timelines and budgeting outlines, this course puts your RV dream into action.
- The Signature Bundle includes all of the courses listed above.

Hi,I am considering rving long term.I just sold my home without having a place in line, due to my indecisive behavior which by the way is new. I am female, single and almost 55 years old. I have never been on or driven an rv before however I use to drive larger trucks for work, and moving. I am a type 1 diabetic and I will have my cat with me and unsure if I should tie my suv or sell it to buy a smaller class c.? I prefer both so r there class c RV’s that can tow up to 3000-5000 lbs, & should I get diesel ? I want to b able to park anywhere for the next year minimum then decide if I love this life or hate it! I have many fears being alone,so I was wondering if u have met many who travel alone? I don’t want to have to work for anything as it will stress me out because I’m not strong, so what is you suggestion; should I get a newer RV or older that is in good shape? Should I stick to the parks and RV camp sites or will I be ok boondocking?? Finally, is there any solar energy panels out there at affordable price. I don’t have much $$!so I need to be picky yet I need my RV to be easy ,must have internet access and a lot of it, along with th ability to change the water when needed so would a compost toilet b wiser? I know I have many questions but I’m desperate and Ned to buy ASAP because staying with family members isn’t ideal after owning my ow place for 20+ years. I didn’t do my homework about the housing market so I’m in need of a roof over my head, therefore, I must know all the details of owning an RV. I’ve always wanted to travel so doin this is a god idea, I just want don't want to make too may mistakes!

Many RVers travel alone, so it's perfectly doable if you get an RV you can handle. You could purchase a used RV if you're looking to save some money. However, we recommend getting an RV inspection before buying the rig if you go the used route. You can read more about that here: https://www.mortonsonthemove.com/buying-a-used-rv-from-private-party/ Boondocking is our favorite way to camp and is a good option for saving money as well. We've written more about boondocking here: https://www.mortonsonthemove.com/what-is-boondocking/ Lastly, we recommend checking out our Class C article to decide if that's the right choice for you: https://www.mortonsonthemove.com/about-class-c-rvs/ Good luck with your RV journey! :)
