HOW TO PREPARE FOR RV LIVING | NOMAD – GETTING READY TO RV FULL TIME. In this video, I’m sharing what it’s like living in an RV and how I started to become a minimalist. This is part one of my RV Life.
I get asked a tone of questions about what do you need in your RV, what kind of stuff do you keep in your RV versus stuff that you might have in a normal house. So, I figured I’d share with you some things by anytime I’m getting a new RV because a lot of stuff I’ll toss out.
STARTING FROM SCRATCH
I was in a really bad car accident so actually lost everything. I had to rebuild my life and that’s where I’m still starting and I’m literally starting from scratch. I was in the process of moving out of my house and the things that I had in the house were in my RV. It was just a really big mess.
In this video, I’m going to show you some of the things that I buy and where I get them, like the dollar store and the reason I go there is because it’s super cheap and then I can kind of figure out things that I need once I adjust. Because if you don’t know your RV is like a home and you have to make it like a home.
BIG & TALL vs SMALL
The cabinets in every RV are different. The layout, how much room you have, how tall things are, how wide the spaces are — You
need to know those things. Things that fit in one class RV doesn’t necessarily fit in another type of RV. Bigger RVs have bigger cabinets. So when I downsized from a Travel Trailer to A Class B Sprinter van, Things that fit in really big cabinets now have to fit in really small cabinets. Space became an issue!

WHERE TO SHOP & WHAT TO BUY
I’m going to share the stuff that I’ve picked up at the dollar store and this is just my first trip. There’s going to be a follow up and I’ll share some things with you — more what’s in my kitchen, what’s in my my bathroom etc… in a followup video. I’ll be showing you more of my transition into full time RVing — be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my Rving Vlogs 🎥 http://bit.ly/RVwithB
Let’s show you what I picked up at the dollar store today!
- Storage Bags
- Trash Bags
- Spray Bottle for cleaning
- Dish Towels
- Rags for the Kitchen
- Drying Mat
- Floor Mats
- Clothes Pins
- Drawer Liners
- Cleaning Gloves
- Chopping Mat
I’ll get dish towels and things like this just to get started because they’re super cheap. For a dollar you get two dish rags or towels. Most of these items are for the kitchen and I mean these are only a dollar so they’re really not that bad of a deal. For what… 20 bucks? I got a ton of stuff.
Now you can get nicer stuff. Don’t get me wrong. I do have some nicer stuff like these towels that I have purchased, they’re really nice! They’re super skinny and they soak up a lot of water and they’re big and I love them.
If you want the TOWELS I MENTIONED you can check them out in tons of colors on Amazon here:
These are the type things that I really want to start sharing more of because once you get your RV you start converting into that life or if it’s just something that you’re buying for the side just to travel in or what not you still want to have some other things that maybe you wouldn’t typically have in your house because you have to think about space etc….
I’ll still get more stuff, but this is just kind of like what I got on my first haul to start with my RV. I’m just starting. And that’s what I’ve been doing in my free time.
As you can tell, we don’t have a whole lot of space in here. I’m going to be sharing what I do with all this stuff and how my RV comes along. So, I want to hear your questions in the comments below this video.
