RVFTA #34: The Happy and Healthy RV

You can find all our podcasts at

On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are discussing easy ways to develop a healthy RV lifestyle. We’ve developed some rules over the years for eating on the road, making breakfast at the campground, and managing sleeping schedules. These guidelines have served us well, and maybe they could work for you.

We start off by talking about our time on the road before we even get to the campground. This is where the bad habits start, and it is so easy to slip into a fast food and snack routine. We have written about some of our road trip tricks before, and in this episode we will share how eating lunch in your RV at a rest stop can actually be a really enjoyable experience.

Then it’s on to breakfast. We wrote a piece on the Camp Jellystone Blog this week on some of our favorite alternatives to the pancake breakfast. For our favorite smoothie, oatmeal bar, and breakfast burrito recipes, check it out.

And the allusive sleep. It is so easy to end up overtired on a vacation. We find that late nights, missed naps, and jam-packed days can lead to cranky kids (and adults!). We will talk about some of the rules we have developed to keep everyone from experiencing the dreaded vacation overload.

We are thrilled to welcome Stef and James from The Fit RV as guests on the show this week. They are helping us set some new goals for fitness and work towards being even healthier while we travel this season. They made some great recommendations for small, lightweight gear to bring with you in the RV such as Bodylastics. Our set is on its way to the camper as we drop this episode!

Make sure you check out their YouTube channel which is full of simple RV fitness routines. They also have a healthy dose of black tank videos and campground reviews, all done with a great sense of humor that we love.

Who won the best flashlight in the whole wide world? You will have to listen to find out! And we also announce this week’s giveaway from the Spring Gear Guide 2015: The MyMayu Toddler Play Boots, one of our favorite kid gear finds of the year. You can watch an Unboxing Review on our YouTube Channel.

All of this and so much more on Episode 34 of RV Family Travel Atlas: The Happy and Heathy RV!

    Good luck Stephanie meeting your goals, I liked the idea of the 3 exercises, 10 reps, you could do that while waiting for the kids to ride around the campground on their bikes? And way to bust ’em on the instant coffee, that made me chuckle.

      Thanks, Erin! You will hear all the updates:-) And yes, it is easier to imagine fitting in when you line it up with kid activities!
