When we were in the thick of it, downsizing our home, selling our possessions, and walking through what felt like thousands of RVs to find that "perfect floor plan" we asked ourselves multiple times "what are we doing?!".
Looking back to that chapter of our lives, we realize that the stress from starting RV life is inevitable but the additional chaos from being unorganized or scatter brained was self inflicted.
We're not the only ones who did it though.
We've talked to so many people about their journeys to RV life and they did the same things.
They didn't know where to start, they were unorganized with paperwork, and couldn't remember which RV had what features after looking through so many.
Getting rid of personal belongings sucks. We didn't have a system in place to get through each room or how to move forward when we got sentimental.
After looking through multiple RVs they all start to blend together. We wasted valuable time looking at some floor plans again because we forgot key information while shopping.
Looking back, we had no clue what we were doing during our PDI and the generic information online was useless. It was silly to rely on our salesman to assist us and in the end it bit us in the butt.
Going through the downsizing process, purchasing our first RV, suffering through a 4 hour PDI and frankly, wading through a lot of crap gave us great perspective of what we did wrong.
Hindsight is 20/20 right?
We have always been organized people and get that satisfactory feeling in our gut when we check off to do lists. So why did this huge chapter in our lives get so jumbled?
We realize now it was just a lot to do and we didn't have the proper resources. How could we know how to downsize if we've never done it? The same goes for buying an RV and doing a thorough PDI.
After realizing how many other first time RVers went through this same mess, we knew we had to create something for other embarking on this exciting chapter of their lives.
