If you are brand new to the world of RV travel, Youtube is a godsend. But there are so many Youtube RVing channels to choose from.
Of course, having so many choices is a good thing in a way. It means that you can get plenty of information to help you learn about the RV lifestyle.
But these days, it seems that almost everyone has a channel about RVing and travel. And a lot of these channels are not really about RV living as much as they are about the channel owners themselves.
So how do you find the Youtube RVing content that will help you transition into the RV owner world as smoothly as possible?

What Makes A Good Newbie Youtube RVing Channel?
There are plenty of reasons to watch Youtube RVing videos. And if you already know a lot about the lifestyle, you can just watch whatever interests you. And that’s fine!
But if you are an RVing newbie, you really need to get an RV education as well as be entertained. Unfortunately, many of the RVing videos on Youtube are more about the personal lives of the RVers themselves.
They may contain a little education about RVing, but that is secondary to the goal of just entertaining you with their adventures. Is there anything wrong with this? Absolutely not!
There is room for all kinds of RVing videos on Youtube. And many people enjoy picking their favorite personalities and following them as they go about their daily lives.
But if you are a newbie to the RV world, there is so much to be learned. And the more you know about RVs and RV travel, the more time and money you will save as you adjust to this new adventure.
My wife and I went through this same kind of RV education period. It’s where you really don’t know much of anything about RVs but you want to learn as fast as you can.
So I’m going to share with you our favorite Youtube RVing video producers who really made a difference in our life.
Of course, there are many wonderful RVing channels on Youtube that have great educational content. But we only have time and space enough to cover the top 5 on our personal list of favorites. You can add to this list as your new adventure continues to unfold!
Youtube RVing Channel #1 – RV Love
I’m not going to list these RVing channels in any particular order. But the RV Love channel is certainly one of our all-time favorites.
Marc and Julie Bennet are the content creators for this channel. And they do a superb job of educating you and entertaining you at the same time.
We have followed them for some time now and watched them grow as RVers and Youtubers along the way. When we first started watching their channel, Marc was still working full-time as they traveled.
Now they are both full-time content creators for Youtube and their website. In addition, they are authors of one of the best all-around books about how to transition to RVing that I have ever seen. You can click here to read about it. (this is an affiliate link, but it will not cost you any extra if you choose to buy)
You will find a good mix of videos about both their travels and RV education as well. They are both extremely personable and upbeat. And this makes watching their videos a real pleasure!
One of the unique features about the Bennets is that they have helped explain the world of RV membership camping better than anyone else. I am specifically talking about Thousand Trails membership camping here.
Before the Bennets explained the whole Thousand Trails system in detail, it seemed like a confusing mess. And the information on Thousand Trails campgrounds was fragmented and poorly reviewed.
They have changed all of that! And as a result, we are Thousand Trails members now ourselves. And we are very happy with our purchase because Marc and Julie helped us understand what we were buying. Both the good and bad. And we are happy campers now! (I know, a shameless pun)
Anyway, I know that you will enjoy their channel. And you will certainly benefit from their RVing knowledge and experience!
Youtube Channel #2 – Love Your RV
I found the Love Your RV channel early on in my Youtube searches and I’m so glad that I did. This channel is mainly operated by one person, but Ray does an excellent job of educating RV newbies.
His wife appears at times in his videos, but the channel is mainly about Ray and his wealth of RV knowledge.
They travel in their 5th wheel mainly in the winter months, and usually just throughout the western US. In the summer they stay put in a campground in the Vancouver Canada area as they are Canadian citizens.
Both Ray and his wife are nature lovers and also very good photographers. So during the winter months, the videos will often showcase the various spots where they are staying on their travels.
They love to boondock, or camp without hookups. So many times you will be treated to the wonders of very special locations where few other RVers choose to camp.
But along the way Ray manages to always teach you something about RVs themselves and about RV camping. Then when they return to Canada for the summer he often puts out lots of educational videos while they are stationary.
These range from RV repair and maintenance how-to videos to RV product reviews. If you pay attention to these gems of instruction, you will learn a lot about how RVs work. And also about how you can make RV travel more enjoyable and safe.
This channel gets a big thumbs up from me for all of you who want to be able to work on your own rig when it’s necessary. You will learn a lot from Ray!
Youtube Channel #3 – Drivin & Vibin
Kyle and Olivia with the Drivin & Vibin channel put out some of the best videos on RV living that you can find on Youtube.
They are a young couple that have embraced a simple traveling lifestyle. And they are happy to share all of the information that they can about how others can do what they do.
There is a good mix of travel videos and educational information. So we always look forward to their latest video.
Both of them are very personable and easy to listen to. So they make learning about RV travel fun and entertaining.
When we first started watching them they were living in a very small travel trailer with their dog River. But then they took on the project of completely restoring a vintage Airstream Argosy from the ground up. And they took all of their subscribers along for the ride.
Just watching the whole Airstream renovation series will provide a great education in how RVs work. So if you don’t know much about how RVs are put together, just watch those videos and you will learn a lot.
These days they are the proud parents of a newborn baby girl. So now we will get to see how they handle the challenges of parenthood in their RV travels too.
This is a fun and engaging couple, so I recommend the Youtube RVing information that they provide.
Youtube Channel #4 – The RV Geeks
The RV Geeks channel is the gold standard of RVing how-to information. Peter and John are excellent teachers and they have covered so many of the most important topics about RV care and maintenance.
What I like best is how they don’t just explain what you should do to care for your RV, they also show you. That is really hard to do on camera. Take it from me, I know how difficult it is to show a project in a step-by-step fashion entirely on video.
Before I make a new RV how-to video, I often ask myself how the RV Geeks would do it. And then I try to produce a quality video that lives up to the standard that they are known for.
If you visit their channel page you will see that they have been putting out great content for several years. And there is an incredible amount of information on so many aspects of RV repair and care. So be sure to go through the back catalog of videos to get a good RV education.
Lately they are branching out into TV as well. They are currently starring along with some of the other top Youtube RVing content producers in a new television show. It’s simply called “The RVers” and it’s found on the Discovery channel. So don’t miss that as well!
This channel is a fabulous resource for RV knowledge. Be sure to subscribe as soon as you can!
Youtube Channel # 5 – Mortons On The Move
I have saved one of my favorite RVing channels for last on this list. And that is the Mortons On The Move channel.
Tom and Cait Morton are a couple who have embraced the RV and travel lifestyle in their Dodge dually and 5th wheel. And they carry along their pet dogs as they travel as well.
I am a huge fan of Tom and his photographic skills. He is a whiz with video and I have been especially blown away by his drone footage at the various places they have visited in the US.
So if you want to be inspired to get out there and travel the country in your RV, just watch some MOTM videos. He also has an engineering background, so he tackles some of the most challenging RV problems and shows you how it’s fixed.
Cait is also a great on-camera personality, and the two together are very engaging and helpful. They are also adventurous and willing to take on almost any challenge.
In the last year they have worked on producing a film on RVing with Tom as the director. Then they spent weeks helping Kyle and Olivia of Drivin & Vibin remodel their Airstream Argosy. Afterward they took off to Alaska for several months in a truck camper. And now they are also starring on “The Rvers” TV show.
So the Mortons are definitely always on the move.
These are experienced RVers that you can learn from. So don’t hesitate to visit their channel page and subscribe right away!
A Few More Bonus Youtube RVing Channels
It’s really a shame to limit the list of Youtube RVing information to just 5 channels. Especially since there are many other really good channels that we have learned from over the years.
So here are a few more that you should consider:
- Technomadia – Chris and Cherie are the go-to experts on staying connected as you go about your RV travels. They produce a lot of valuable information on getting internet connectivity almost anywhere. So don’t miss this resource.
- Keep Your Daydream – Marc and Trish are perhaps the most entertaining couple in the Youtube RVing category. They are not as much about education as they are about their adventures and travels though. So I didn’t include them in the top 5 list for newbies above. But you can still learn a lot from their channel as they show you what daily life is like on the road. And he is a wizard at making top quality videos that engage the audience. We love their channel!
- Cheap RV Living – This channel is mainly aimed at frugal RVers and those who travel in smaller RVs. But the owner Bob has a wonderful way of explaining complex subjects and making them simple to understand. I have enjoyed many of his videos and interviews with other RVers. Sometimes you can learn ingenious ways of RVing that you never thought of before on this channel.
- Long Long Honeymoon – Sean & Kristy travel in a beautiful Airstream travel trailer. They are a great source of information and insight into RV living. And Sean often does product reviews that helps new RVers be sure that they get the best RV gear for the money.
- All About RVs – Jared and his family are fulltime RVers who travel the country in their 5th wheel. Jared is an excellent teacher, so easy to listen to. And he covers a lot of the important topics that new RVers need to know to be successful. His channel is getting better by the day so don’t miss this one.
- Finally, let me put in a shameless plug for our own Youtube channel, RV Inspection And Care. Almost all of the content that I try to produce is aimed at education for Rvers, whether they are experienced or novices. We would love for you to join our little online family by subscribing to our channel. I promise you will learn a lot if you do!
