We’ve been living full time in a travel trailer for 16 months now and let us tell you… there are some UGLY TRUTHS to such activity. We didn’t think it’d be all rainbows and unicorns, but there are certainly some unexpected cons that are quite strong. We hope to share some of these in this video not to scare you, just to shed light on what it’s like to live in an RV full-time for a prolonged period of time! In the end… we do it because it will help us to achieve greater goals. In the end, we think it will all be worth it!

  1. tuff ute on October 29, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    – 12 too fucking cold for me i"ll stick to Sunny Australia All year round

  2. Making Sense on October 29, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    Why would you have a cat in a RV… Yuck!
    Also adding the larger RVs that have sides come out are much better than the one you have.

  3. Barry Huffer on October 29, 2020 at 1:27 pm

    Couldnt relate to this video as i dont need nor want coffee aka the devils drink . I use berocca and cigretz to wake up like a normal god loving douchebag

  4. Tommy Sainthill on October 29, 2020 at 1:27 pm

    Did I noticed that phantom 3 remote. 👍👍✌

  5. gonzo8407 on October 29, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Buy a bigger rv.

  6. Angie S on October 29, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    I would not be able to sleep, my darling snores soooo loud

  7. BG Smith on October 29, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Absolutely loved this!! The humor, brief education, facts, and need more of kitty! Am considering this myself, on gf’s property locally, just to get caught up on debt, so googling, youtubing, ad nauseam. Thanks for sharing!

  8. S.J.'s DIY Adventures on October 29, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    Great stuff. I’m finding full time RV Living to be a challenge too. I just did a similar video on this topic.

  9. Dirty Blond on October 29, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    You’re not in an RV, you’re in a camper.
    Dont think you’d have as many gripes if you were in a class A or C…

  10. Candy Apples on October 29, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    This should be retitled 10 Ugly Truths About Full Time "Class C" RV Living. Common theme is room to move around. With exception of the internet problem, you wouldn’t have these problems in a class A.

  11. Claude Clawsonne on October 29, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    Should’a held onto that top. They’re interchangeable and it’s good to have a tea and one coffee one.

  12. Jackie O on October 29, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    Great video!

  13. Linda Lai on October 29, 2020 at 1:34 pm

    One of the most honest videos about RV living … not sugar coated and people have to make fun of it. I wouldn’t live in one if you paid me.

  14. Carla Donaldson on October 29, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    Ok I’m thinking in one of y’all’s videos you had two cats? Did I dream that or did something happen to one?

  15. Tosh M. on October 29, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    Loved the techno bit…Subbed!

  16. Christine Mullen on October 29, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    That was funny to watch

  17. Diana Volone on October 29, 2020 at 1:37 pm

    I have lived in a rv most of my life and if you don’t like your little camper buy a big one really

  18. Caullin Frey on October 29, 2020 at 1:37 pm

    I love how yall have your fun moments, but you get to the point… it’s hard to find YouTubers like that!

  19. Jeremy Smith on October 29, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    I have been RV living for 12 years and I have no problem with it. Why do people laugh and complain about it!

  20. She Wolf on October 29, 2020 at 1:39 pm

    Did you thing about building an insulated garage and just parking the RV inside instead?

  21. raj kumar on October 29, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    Basically u building a house

  22. Victoria Lynn on October 29, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    Husband and I are going to hopefully be living this life in an RV this year. We live in Florida so the cold will not be an issue, just the heat and we have two dogs…so I’m thinking a little bigger RV if we can find a good one. 🙂

  23. Austin Voss on October 29, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    You two are petty. Sounds like you are so busy bitching about things that are more of a perspective issue than actual problems, and you are missing out on a wonderful chance to live life to it’s fullest potential. But then again by the way you view your current situation it seems that you long for the day where you can go back to living the robotic lifestyle that our society deems the best way of life. Have fun in your cubicles that you will spend more time in than your home, and when you get home you will be too tired to enjoy it, so you retire to your bedroom Wich will be roughly the size of your RV, then do it all again the next day. There isn’t much wrong with your way of living, there is something wrong with your way of thinking.

  24. DieseLGuY365 on October 29, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    grow a pair , shoot the cat and maybe the needy one? things might not be so bad….

  25. Robert Laird on October 29, 2020 at 1:51 pm

    Yes, Full time RVing does suck. If we had to do our build all over again, we should have built a park model and then sold it when done or rented it out for extra income. Now that I just said that, we’re building a park model to help fund our forth year of building our dream home.

  26. kim love on October 29, 2020 at 1:51 pm

    Put a slide curtin up and some ear plugs.

  27. Bombo Combo295 on October 29, 2020 at 1:52 pm

    Is there wifi connections?

  28. AllTeredstatement on October 29, 2020 at 1:54 pm

    Food for thought
    What would make it possible for the garage to get doors

    Is there a feasible way to make a fireplace outside that’s capable of burning full length slats ect

    Some creeks holds good gravel

  29. Brian on October 29, 2020 at 1:54 pm

    Sort of like a house. It depreciates with time unless you continually stick money into it. Not to.forget you have been brainwashed by media and society into being a mindless zombie that buys crap their children have to sort out after they die and most likely is thrown away because it’s worthless. I can rip house owning for days. The BRUTAL REALITY OF over paying for property/housing.

  30. knomenow on October 29, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    i lived full time in an RV in williston North dakota. this is the best video ive seen that isnt glamorizing the lifestyle. it really isnt sunshine amd daisys

  31. mahnamahnadodoobedodo on October 29, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    S.A.D. Annoying twats!

  32. Bill Deadeye on October 29, 2020 at 1:58 pm

    I know a year late so the hell with it , look at the clickbait timing ,why are people making a job out of vacation ,bullshit living full time in a RV ,get a job ,I still RV three times a year for 48 years and learn by my mistakes ,SORRY but the bad with the good makes it a vacation to remember ,don’t you slugs turn vacation into a job! Fulltime RVing is one step away from homeless ,"Remember That".‹(•¿•)›

  33. 4freedom now on October 29, 2020 at 2:03 pm

    screw living in a 19 footer permanent for 2 people that’s tiny. I live in 27ft 5th wheel and its still on smallish size for 2 people 2 dogs 5th wheels can be nicer cause they feel bigger have higher ceiling but layout realy matters the most iv noticed the new 1s are super cheaply made mine is a 91 and still has original working stuff. have to agree on the dirt uhg ready for winter 2 b over 😛 with the downsides the up is u cant get kiked out as long as ur not making payments and its warm n dry beets sleeping outdoors right?

  34. Lucifer Lampmuffin on October 29, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    Funny and informative! New sub!

  35. Emmaoh Watts on October 29, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    Wow so lucky

  36. jigga jaw on October 29, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    I don’t think anyone was unaware of these 10 ugly truths. We’re all pretty much aware that there are about 50 ugly truths to doing this. That’s why they’re just for a week of fun camping or something, and only crazy masochist people want to live in one.

  37. fuck you on October 29, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    its still better than living in a house right next to 20 neighbors in a city with crackhead,thieves, homeless ,traffic noise and a view on other buildings

  38. Steve Turtle on October 29, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    She farted ^%*^*&^&GY&*^^(_)*&( and blamed it on a cat, I love it!!!!

  39. Yvette Rankin-Hill on October 29, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    All excellent points. I am not scared off. Moving into a 33 foot bh class c in 2018. Used of course (2014-2016). Moving in with my 11 yo daughter and three pets. The depreciation is an issue, will be buying some land in the near future.

  40. CANDYCE CERNAT on October 29, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    i live in a 97 30 footer with 3 border collies 2 teens and one disabled husband with basicly 0 income you have it made

  41. chris m on October 29, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    you forgot condensation, if you are using any heater besides wood burning stoves, you have massive condensation and its a nightmare.

  42. drain on October 29, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    in america? is this legal?

  43. Jan CW on October 29, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Got my pressure all up and my nerves going…

  44. Jenni Lowe on October 29, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Y’all are friggin hilarious!!!

  45. larry hoover on October 29, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    How do you stay warm?

  46. Kimminatrix on October 29, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    I want an rv because i am in college and cant afford rent plus i know after college i will have to move potentially out of state and i want to state hop with internships after internships until i find a place where i want to call home. Then i will buy a house. Either way , it wouldn’t be a permanent thing unless i just really enjoy it . Just saving up for that down payment …

  47. Gio Giovanni on October 29, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    19 foot isn’t big enough for one person, no wonder you’re fed up with it. And by the way who in their right mind would full time RV in cold climate areas. You have a house with wheels on it you could go anywhere you want

  48. Logan Lorn on October 29, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Informative video! Thank you!

  49. Delta Is Bum on October 29, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Dirt everywhere? Why you shouldn’t wear shoes in the RV/House

  50. Sharon Willicome on October 29, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    Long intro or what!
