OUR FAVE GEAR AND REVIEWS

After more than 5 years on the road as full-time RVers, we’ve tried and tested our fair share of gear. We’ve done video reviews on a lot of our favorite gear – mostly on our Road Gear Reviews channel – which we have rounded up for you here. We are extremely selective and only our most useful gear makes the cut for a video review. We have purchased most gear ourselves, but occasionally we are provided a product for testing and review if we feel it will be useful to both us and you. Importantly, this never changes the fact that we are always honest in sharing our opinions of a product.

We’ve also included links below to purchase. We are part of affiliate programs by AmazonTechnoRV, Mobile Must Have and more. So when you use our links here when making your purchase, we earn a small commission. All purchases are private and using our links costs you no extra. Whenever possible, we also share coupon codes to get you a discount. Using our links supports us in continuing to create free content for you. And while we never expect it, we sincerely appreciate you thinking of us and using our links when you shop.

Please feel free to ask any questions. We’re happy to help. – Best of LIFE, Marc and Julie

We sold our Tiffin motorhome and our Country Coach didn’t come with one. So the first thing we did was asked MattressInsider.com to make us another one the same as we loved it so much. We filmed the unboxing and unrolling, and shared our experience from over a year of use. MattressInsider can make your mattress (for RV, home or boat) in any size or shape and ship direct to you, with a full guarantee.
