Holiday Rambler & The Adventurtunity Family

January 10, 2022

We sold it all to live in our home on wheels, traveling the countryside together. Little did we know that selling most of our things and living small would actually give us more than we ever had before!

Hello! We are Spencer, Kristi, and Kade…also known as the Adventurtunity Family! In April 2019 we returned from a six-week trip to New Zealand and Australia where we quickly realized our current day-to-day life wasn’t aligning with the direction we wanted for our family. We had goals and dreams, like everyone else, but weren’t taking steps to make them a reality. It wasn’t until we asked ourselves one simple question, “If you had everything you needed to make a change, would you?” that we finally took action.

Learning to Drive a Class A Motorhome

May 10, 2021
There is something about learning to drive a Class A motorhome that gives some people pause when they are trying to decide what type of RV to buy for their family. It was one of the most frequent questions I got when we brought home our Vacationer. Friends and family alike would look at it and say, “That’s a beautiful motorhome…no way I could drive that!” Or something like, “That’s gotta be so scary to drive, how did you learn?” If I’m honest, Class A’s were not at the top of my list when we started looking for an RV because I had never driven anything nearly that big! But the reality is that it’s really not all that daunting. And like anything else, the more you do it, the better you get!

Adventurtunity Family: How to Plan an Extended RV Trip

Extended Road TripSeptember 9, 2022
Planning an extended RV trip can be wildly exciting, but also intimidating. Just to clarify, we are talking about hitting the road for several weeks or even several months at a time. That timeframe may be the longest time away from your home and much longer than the standard two-week vacation many of us are used to. One of the best benefits of traveling by RV is having the flexibility to change up where you go and how long you stay, if you so choose. Whether you are traveling in your own RV or renting one, another huge bonus is the ability to make your RV a mini home packed with all the items you need plus a few of your favorite things! Of course, there are definitely some key factors to consider along the way.
