Top 10 Campervan Travel Blogs you should follow

If you are considering living the campervan lifestyle, why not check out the blogs of those who have experienced it first hand? The campervan lifestyle isn't about living for long periods somewhere other than your normal home; it's about seeing the world, travelling, meeting new people, learning about other cultures and new life experiences. Others have done it and so can you. 


There are ways to live on the road full time while using the internet to work remotely to actually earn decent wages. You can write books about how to become mortgage free, or about how to use the internet to support yourself while on the road travelling.

Whether you are going on the road, are thinking about the possibility of it, or are just curious about the stories of those who are living it, we have compiled a brief list of 10 campervan travel blogs from those who have made it work.
