RV Miles is the newest destination for RV and camping news, reviews, recipes, and so much more.
If you aren’t listening to RV podcasts or other camping and travel related podcasts, you’re missing out on one of the best ways to pass a long drive or feed the camping itch in the off-season. And you’ll learn quite a bit to boot. Of course, we’re biased and think you really ought to be listening to the RV Miles Podcast, but there are several other RV podcasts out there that we recommend, as well as some others that are camping and outdoor recreation related.
If you’re new to podcasts or don’t even know what the heck a podcast is, that’s ok! A podcast is just an internet version of a radio show. The best way to listen is on a smartphone or tablet. There are lots of different podcasts apps out there, and most are free. Our favorite is an app called Podbean, but the Apple Podcasts app is good too, as well as Google Play and Stitcher. Just download the app and search for the shows on our list below. You can subscribe to a show and it will download episodes automatically when a new one is available. If you don’t have a smartphone, that’s ok, most of these podcasts have a website where you can listen on a computer or download shows for listening later.
Our favorite shows have one thing in common — they all have solid production values and are a joy to listen to.
Jason and Abby of OurWanderingFamily.com travel the country full-time with their three boys in a converted school bus. Their weekly show focuses primarily on great destinations across the country, as well as basic tips, app recommendations, RV and camping news, even a weekly brain teaser. We may be biased, but since launching just a year ago, the show has become one of the most listened to shows. We think you’ll agree it’s among the best RV podcasts out there. You might also enjoy their America’s National Parks Podcast, a storytelling style show focused on our nation’s treasures.
RV Family Travel Atlas
Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi’s easy-going RVFTA Podcast takes a look at RV travel primarily from a family travel perspective, but it’s full of great tips and tricks for campers of all stripes. They utilize a healthy balance of guests and their own travel advice, and each episode focuses on a single topic — usually destinations they’ve visited and how-tos for the RV lifestyle. They also offer a weekly campground review show called Campground of the Week.
The RV Podcast
Formerly titled “Roadtreking,” Mike and Jennifer Wendland’s weekly podcast is one of the best known, and it’s about to hit its 200th episode. Each show touches on a variety of topics, including tips, travel advice from weekly interview segments, and answers to listener call-in questions. We particularly enjoy the “off the beaten path” reports from contributors Tom and Patti Burkett. Mike and Jennifer travel extensively in a Class B Roadtrek motorhome and are always on top of all the industry trends.
The Nomad Together Podcast
Paul and Becky Kortman use the term “location independent” to describe their family of six, and we absolutely love it. Their show isn’t just for RVers, it’s for anyone who travels as a lifestyle or is just considering it. And the show isn’t limited to the United States, either. They’re really great at providing solid advice and ideas for anyone looking to travel full-time, particularly families looking to understand the ins and outs of “roadschooling” or “worldschooling.” Unfortunately, they stopped posting new episodes last December, but it’s still one of the best RV podcasts out there.
Stories from the Road
This is a new podcast organized by the folks at Camping World, and it has hit its stride quickly. Host Sam Nuerminger interviews all kinds of RVers about what drew them to the road, the challenges they face, and what keeps them going year after year. We particularly appreciate the show’s attention to diversity. It’s different than every other RV podcast, as its mainly a collection of stories from real people out there on the road, instead of industry experts.
The RV Entrepreneur
This weekly podcast isn’t for every RVer, but if you’re looking to be a full-time traveler, Heath and Alyssa Padgett and their guests have all kinds of great advice and ideas for creating remote income and working from anywhere. They are certainly savvy entrepreneurs themselves, having been featured all over mainstream media.
