We are Bryan and Luann Street. We desire to help other RVers learn about new things that will make their transition to full-time RV living easier and more satisfactory. We love to spend time traveling in our RV and ride our e-bikes everywhere! We have made the transition to living full-time on the road as of September 2017.
We left our family in Asheville NC. We loved living there! But we know there are many other beautiful places in the USA that call to us and we want to experience.
We bought our first motorhome in 2013 on a whim. As we rolled into Camping World to ‘just look’, we thought maybe a class C was where it was at. Then we found a used class A and knew we could never afford it. We picked it up later that week and drove all the way to Myrtle Beach (that is a story for another time) as our FIRST RV experience! I am not sure if I recommend this way of starting this journey but it has worked out for us and 4 years later we gave up our local jobs, bought a different RV and began our dream of traveling full-time and working remotely.
Luann has always been an ‘information gatherer'. She loves to research and is often able to find things and ideas others pass over.
She wants to inspire, educate and inform others on their similar journeys to this decision.
She will let you in on cool finds to make things easier, ways we have found to make money on the road and grand discoveries in travel destinations!
Bryan is amazing with his mechanical skills. He has knowledge of RV inspection, repair & problem solving along with various things that he has learned the hard way.
Bryan desires to help people avoid the pitfalls of going full-time without a plan. He wants to help RVers make the most of their RV life.
He works remotely on our business. He now has time to fish, bike and kayak as we travel.
What made you reinvent your life and live full-time in an RV?
This lifestyle was an evolution of our weekend camping turned into a dream of full-time travel. We had already made a plan of traveling full-time in an RV when we retired but we got anxious and impatient.
We took those desires and began to overcome our fears. we changed our thinking from I can’t or not now to I can and why not? Realizing that a dream without a plan remains a dream, we delved deep and our desire to make this happen for ourselves became stronger and stronger.
We researched and planned and made our dream a reality much sooner than originally thought.
We can help you do that too! We created a program just for people wanting to transition to full-time RVing. It's called the Full-time RV Framework. If you want to fulfill your dream of freedom and travel – << Learn More >>
What does it cost to live in your RV full-time?
Are you retired?
Where do you get your mail?
How did you make your dream happen without retiring?
We had to shift our thinking. The journey to freedom begins in your head. Once we delved into things with a possibility attitude, things began to look differently and turned into opportunities instead of obstacles.
Let us give you an example. Neither of our jobs naturally transitioned to the road. Bryan was in a manufacturing position and Luann was a practice manager for a medical office.
Taking the skills we did have we researched opportunities that could be done remotely. We set up a small business entity. Bryan took a course on RV Maintenance. That class had a business bent to it where you could learn to do RV inspections for money.
Luann had an accounting background and took a course in building her own bookkeeping business. One day the realization hit her – the doctor she was working for could be her first client! She pitched it to him and the rest is history! Shifting your mind is definitely the first step in creating your dream life.
How long do you plan to live this way?
What is your full-time RV set up?
Our original full-time RV was a 2008 42′ Tiffin Allegro Bus from the previous owners who had kept it in a garage most of the time and only used it to travel back and forth from Virginia to Florida for their winter fix. There are stellar deals out there for those who look. We chose to buy used because we wanted a higher end motorhome and wasn’t able to afford that high-end RV new. Buying used can be scary but read this post about RV inspections and don’t let used scare you.
In 2019, we downsized a little to a 2019 36′ Tiffin Allegro Open Road. We wanted to save some money on fuel and maintenance and knew that a gas model could give us that. We also wanted to be able to get in and out of places a little easier without sacrificing our creature comforts. This RV hit all the goals for us. We flat-tow a 2015 Jeep Trailhawk that carries our bikes on the back.
