WE DID IT! THREE MONTH USA FAMILY RV ROAD TRIP

We’re Back – Hello & Happy Holidays! 

We’ve completed one amazing three-month road trip around America in our rented C-Class RV and I can’t believe it’s over. Here’s a summary of our family RV road trip with links to posts and more!


Listen to this post as a Podcast by clicking on the following link.

I’m typing away like a crazy person to get 90 days of personal diary entries into words that you will enjoy and find useful if needed for your own road trip planning.

It was a wonderful experience to discover so much about the United States and doing it in an RV with three kiddos is a fun way, if you’re the right kind of people. Stay tuned and keep following along on our blog where we’ll tell you all about it!

So far I’ve got dairy entries posted on the blog for Days 1 to 16:

More diary entries will be posted soon and shortcut links will be added to this post.

Posts to follow about our USA road trip will include:

  • RV Road Trip Q&A with our thoughts on specific RV related questions.
  • Costing and How we Planned our USA RV Road Trip
  • A Detailed 90 Day Road Trip Itinerary
  • Diary Entries

Scroll to the bottom of this post for a summarised itinerary of the trip.


We’re now in Spain, staying at Benal Beach near Malaga and after the race we’ve just completed all around America, this is the right speed for us at which to go into the new year: slowly. It’s also the perfect place to enjoy some extended sunny weather before we head back to proper winter in England.

If you celebrate Christmas, we wish you a merry one and if you’re spending time with loved ones, we wish you a blessed time indeed.

We’ll chat again soon in the new year.

Cheers!

Lindsy & Brendan

  2. Thank you Brendan

  3. Now this is epic and amazing! What a wonderful experience and memories to make together. I love it!

  4. Thank you. We certainly have great memories from this trip. I’m so glad you enjoyed it Elisa.

  5. I can’t wait to read the whole 90 day account! This is something we too want to do as a family in the future so thank you very much for posting your adventures.

  6. You’re very welcome Fanuel. I so badly want to get the whole trip written up and posted, but it takes so much longer than I think each time I sit down and start writing because there’s just so much to tell.

    Don’t you find that editing photo’s, which I dare not leave out, always take longer than planned!

    Now I’m even more eager to get the trip posted and up to date for your families’ own adventure. Back to work!

  7. Love this as it really resonates. We have a class C motor home which we bought sort of by accident whilst we lived in Canada a couple of years ago. We kept it when we moved back to the UK and since then have done several road trips through Canada and the US, usually for about 10 weeks. Admittedly though it is just the two of us! We head off again next week, Toronto to BC and will take in Yellowstone so i am going to checknout your post on this for all the tips i can get about camping there in a 28 foot rv! You have a great itinerary here so will look forward to following along and comparing. What a brilliant experience!

  8. Thank you Jane. We’d love to get a RV to keep in the US to do exactly what you do; go on trips when we can. Oh, I’m so jealous to think you’re going next week! Take me with you!!!!! You must enjoy it and I hope you’ll share the trip and lots of pics.
