Harvest Hosts is one of our very favorite places to overnight. It is a unique membership service that lets RVers camp overnight FOR FREE at lovely outdoor venues such as wineries, breweries, museums, farms, orchards, and creameries (it is recommended that you patronage these venues that you stay at).
There are more than 2,000 such places across North America to choose from.
There is also an upgraded membership where you can also camp overnight at golf courses!
Roadpass Pro INCLUDES access to all 14,000+ free boondocking locations in the OvernightRVParking.com app! Roadpass Pro also includes new RV GPS navigation that considers weight limits, low overhead clearances, grades of terrain, and propane restrictions to give you turn-by-turn directions specific to your RV. Just select a destination, add your vehicle size, and use the turn-by-turn in-app navigation. And it includes Roadtrippers Plus, where you can plan trips with up to 150 stops, collaborate with friends on route planning, and get real-time traffic along your route. Check it out – highly recommended!
You can get $10 off your Togo RV Roadpass Pro annual membership using the discount code: RVLIFESTYLE21
Boondockers Welcome is another unique service that lets you overnight on private property, often at the homes of welcoming hosts. They have over 2,000 members who have graciously opened up a spot on their property, where you can find a safe, quiet spot to spend the night as you are passing through the area.
The hosts are usually RVers themselves and I’ve never heard of anybody that has stayed at a Boondockers Welcome place that hasn’t come away with a new set of friends! Boondockers Welcome is a great option to turn to if you’re nearby a big city or in an area where it’s almost impossible to find a spot for the night unless you book 6+ months ahead of time.
If you’re interested in hosting RVers on your property, it is free to sign up and for every guest that visits you, Boondockers Welcome will give you 3 months free to their subscription!
You can get 15% off your Boondockers Welcome annual membership using the discount code: RVLIFESTYLE15
Many RVers are familiar with the AllStays app. It is awesome. But since Jennifer and I discovered AllStays Pro, the browser-based subscription site, we rely on it almost exclusively in our RV travels.
We use it for finding interesting places that really stand out, especially out of the way boondocking spots and free places to stay
Using this link and the discount code: rvpodcast you can save 10% off your All Stays Pro annual subscription.
After doing an interview on our podcast with Wholesale Warranties, we decided to partner with them to recommend them for RV Extended Warranties to our readers.
We know RV are complex machines with many parts, and high repair costs can be an unfortunate twist in your RV journey.
Having an RV Extended Warranty can help to erase those undesirable and unexpected costs. The truth is, RV’s have a very high chance of breakdown and there’s no more stressful situation than having your vacation or road trip interrupted by mechanical repairs.
More than that, an Extended Warranty offers peace of mind for what is usually the second most expensive purchase you'll ever make, outside of your home.
- Maintenance items or aesthetic items such as light bulbs, glass, and furniture.
- Anything that’s covered by your comp and collision insurance, accidents and physical damage as well as anything caused by weather or acts of God.
Here is what it is going to cover:
- Pretty much every electrical working component on the RV. That ranges from engine or transmission failure down to all of your coach components.
- Your heating and cooling, air conditioning, slide-outs, leveling systems, refrigerators, microwaves, and TVs.
The typical RV Extended Warranty is not a monthly expense like insurance, they are usually a one-time purchase that covers you for 2-7 years. And once you have the warranty, you are locked into that policy and no matter how many claims you make.
Beddy's is the most innovative RV bedding solution we have ever seen. We like them so much we bought two of them for our RV's twin beds.
The entire bedding goes on the mattress like a fitted sheet. It's one piece with the bottom sheet sewn (permanently) inside. It stays in place. There is no bunching up.
Beddy's advertises itself as “the bed that practically makes itself.”
Their slogan is “Zip your Bed.”
And while they were first sold for regular beds like you'd find in a house, they now also specialize in RV bedding.
Beddy's is in one piece with a zipper all around. You can unzip the top so it completely detaches from the bottom so you can kick your legs out if desired. Or use the zipper to tuck you in nice and snug. Your choice.
Because the bed attached to the mattress, in the morning, you just “zip your bed” and it is completely neat and made up.
Here's a video and blog review we did on Beddy's. They come in many different styles and colors.
If you are uncertain what style or color to order, Beddy's will send out 2 x 3 in fabric samples to help you make a decision. Just go to https://rvlifestyle.com/beddys
We love these products so much that when we got our new RV, one of the first things we did is added a bunch of Organized Obie organizational and storage nets and products. Here's a blog and video showing how we used these products in our current RV.
Organized Obie specializes in aftermarket organizational solutions for Recreational Vehicles, boats, and other places where storage may be tight. They make a wide variety of mesh and stretch nets using bungee cords and specially woven material that keeps things organized and secure.
We picked out an assortment of bags, nets, hangars, hooks, shower organizers, a unique shower towel rack, and various others.
If you use the promo code RVLIFESTYLE they'll give you 5% off the cost of your order.
When we’re on a roadtrip we always seem to find a way to stop at a Camping World center. There are over 225 Camping World locations all over across the country and there’s always one close by when we need parts and accessories for our RV – or just want to shop. In fact, we have so much fun with Camping World as one of our Sponsors. And they have agreed to offer 10% off on purchases over $99 from CampingWorld.com
RV Trip Wizard is now part of the RV LIFE Pro suite of tools!
The four RV Life Pro tools make it easy for you to discover, plan, go, and share your RV trips. The 4-in-1 membership includes:
- RV LIFE Trip Wizard
- RV LIFE Campground Reviews
- RV LIFE App (RV-Safe GPS)
- RV LIFE Maintenance Tracker
Just to be clear, you get all four of these tools in one with an RV LIFE Pro membership for a very reasonable price. I think most users would agree the price is actually cheap considering the value it brings.
RV Life Pro only costs $59 per year if you purchase the annual membership (less than $5 per month). The annual membership also comes with a 7-day free trial. The monthly subscription is $19.99 per month and does not include a 7-day free trial. BUT NOTE the discount code below!
In all honesty, just one of these tools is easily worth $5 per month, let alone all four combined. That is why I don’t hesitate to say that RV LIFE Pro is worth the money for most RVers.
And this is important – if you want to enjoy using all the RV Life Pro tools just add this coupon code: RVLIFESTYLE which gives you 25% off the price! If you already use RV Life Pro – your cost is already low and locked in.
–> Note that discount codes must be entered on a computer – if you try to sign up with the mobile app, there is no place to put the coupon code. <–

Excerpt from an interview (read the full interview and watch the video right here):
Mike Wendland: You turn on the air and you hear the fan, then it goes clunk. And that's when the compressor is on.
Mike Sokol: That's exactly right. It's like revving up the engine on your car and dropping the clutch. It's this big bang that tries to start this thing up quickly. And because it's doing it quickly, it's got to have a lot of juice in there. That's what makes generators trip out. That's what trips 20 amp circuit breakers if you're moochdocking and that can in fact trip, even trip 30 amp services, if you've got other things running at a campground. Make sense?
It's pretty ingenious because what it does is it smooths out this startup cycle. Think of it as kind of an automatic transmission where it just kind of smooths you into the thing. And it does it by chopping up the amount of current that's going in to start this up.

When we’re asked what’s the most important modification we made to our RV it’s an easy answer — Battleborn Batteries. Battleborn Batteries are quality, safe, reliable lithium batteries that allow us to stay out there off the grid longer. Lithium batteries charge faster and charge fuller – they are longer lasting and they’re maintenance-free. And Battle Born Batteries are protected by a 10-year guarantee. Now in our case, they just dropped into the existing AGM batteries that we have. Battleborn Battery experts can get those in your rig just like they did with ours.

You know we love our RAD Power bikes – and have featured them for years, but we recently tested out and LOVE our new Lectric foldable ebikes. Being able to fold them up allowed us to put them in our Wonder rear garage area for a recent RV Lifestyle Gathering. You can check out our experience with them right here on our YouTube Channel.
