Whether you’re thinking about hitting the road full-time or you travel only on the weekends, there are things you’ll need when you hit the road. But, with the amount of items readily accessbile to us through the internet these days, who knows where to start? To me, the best place to start is by asking others who have been there, done that. So, that’s what I did. I hopped over to some of my favorite Full-Time RV Facebook Groups (scroll down to the bottom to see a list of my favorites) and asked what everyone’s must-have items are in their RV! Make sure you check out some of their awesome websites!

  2. Thanks for the shout out! We LOVE our French Press. Once you go French Press, you don’t go back! We also make cold brew with our press and it’s so amazing. Admittedly, we’ve become coffee snobs. You can really taste the coffee flavors when you press it!
