Tips for Renting Your RV

Did you know that there are websites (i.e. RVshare, Outdoorsy) that easily allow you to rent out your RV when it’s not in use? I know I meet a lot of people that complain that they just don’t get to camp enough. If that’s the case for you, this is a great way for you to make money from your RV. You can use the money to pay the payments on your camper or save for your next trip.

The Gravel Trading Co

One of the things I love about owning a subscription box, is being able to connect with other small business owners. I especially like to support small businesses that love the RV life. Even better if they run their business out of their our RV while they travel full-time.

What Campers Love about Out of the Box Camping

Are you a subscription box junkie? I am a lover of subscription boxes so much so that I created my own! As an avid camper I couldn’t find a camping subscription box that wasn’t geared towards the survivalist type camper, which I am definitely not. My family of 5 and I like to camp in our travel trailer, enjoy camping with the comforts of our own home, and (gasp) even enjoy full hook-ups when they are available. Yes I still consider this camping and if you do too, then boy do I have a subscription box for you!
