New Zealand Motorhome & Caravan Bloggers / YouTubers

For such a small country still getting into RVing full-time, there are quite a few of us creating videos and writing about our experience. I started this list with the idea of meeting as many as I could and so far have met nine of the fourteen listed below.

We're a mixed bunch. We live in caravans, motorhomes, buses, campervans and house trucks. We range in ages with some still working and some retired. Sharing the destinations we find, the emotional journey and our practical knowledge. After looking through these channels and websites, you'll come away feeling inspired and entertained.

And I can't forget myself! You've already found my website, but below are my social media links:
