Tips about how to RV fulltime with kids

By Ralph Burns

Fulltime RVing with kids is taxing to tell the truth. Notably if you have a pair of sons like we do. We refer to them as "Inside" and "Outside".

Like other brothers and sisters, our boys are quite different from one another. The older boy is 10 and his first word was "OUTSIDE!" That they normally said with great emphasis whilst positioned by the front entrance at five am.

He never changed very much since those times and is most joyful outside, scampering, fishing, biking or playing soldiers.

Alternatively, our other child prefers to be inside; building legos, chatting with himself as well as drawing in depth detailed art work. He loves to stay in the same room with me so long as I do my own thing and don't interrupt him until he is done.

And yet regardless of all these dissimilarities, these two brothers, "Inside" and "Outside" have usually gotten along very nicely. And this is a major reason why our family can go Rving full-time this year.

To date, Inside and Outside are behaving really nicely on this fulltime RV road trip. For the grown ups,one of the best parts about staying in a full time RV may be the chance to discover all the excellent cultural sites and attractions that dot this excellent country of ours. In short, there is a lot to experience.

Even so coming from a kid's perspective, this "lets see it all" rush to each and every attraction you come into contact with, can be very exhausting.

A few weeks into our journey, we realized this frenzied pace was starting to tire them out. The kids became moody and were misbehaving much more than they normally do.

What we realized was that all of us were living an "adults life" at an "adult pace".

Of course, if you are RVing full time with children, you just can't do it in this way.

Exactly what we discovered is the fact that children really need to play. They need free time to be by themselves, have fun with their toys, have down time and have fun with other kids at the RV park.

We recognized that this play time is really important to a positive home life for them. While traveling, children miss their friends, their home, their toys and thier playtime. So when you are living in an rv full time, parents must fully grasp this and then fine-tune their routines to include a few normal common down time activities.

Therefore we realized that we had been going too fast, wanting to do too much and therefore needed to slow it down. So we did.

Therefore when you're on the road in an Rv fulltime with kids, discover as many sites as you reasonably can.Bear in mind to schedule in plenty of "chillaxin' time".

After all, the points of interest and "not to be missed" sites will probably always be there...however your kids won't always be kids, so give them some time to be just that.
