I wanted to learn how to set up our travel trailer when we arrived at our campsite so I could do it myself. As my husband, Tom was teaching me how, and sharing setup tips, I created a step-by-step travel trailer setup checklist that I rely on so I do not miss an important step. It makes the process really easy. And you should have a checklist too.

I have been utilizing the OBliss Program offered by the RV Odd Couple and it has helped me grow my channel. Now you can too! More details here:



This is an RV camping related YouTube channel community, a place for Weekend Warriors to get inspired, share ideas about small campers, travel trailers, campgrounds, outdoors, RV tips and tricks, accessories, hacks, gadgets, modifications, upgrade ideas to help us have memorable camping getaways.

I love the outdoors, hiking, campfires, meeting fellow campers, exploring new campgrounds and my small travel trailer the Little Guy Max makes this happen. I also camp all 4 seasons and yes… that includes winter camping! I live in Minnesota and mostly camp at Minnesota and Wisconsin campgrounds.

Weekend RV life in my small camper brings me joy. I am a camper at heart and loving every outdoor minute.

I can’t wait to see you next Thursday!
