That’s why Tales From the Black Tank exists. It’s a collection of Hilariously Crappy RV Stories to laugh at when RV living has you down.” – Liz Wilcox

The Airstream that Ran Away with the Spoon
This book is perfect for anyone that is RVing with disabilities or anyone considering doing so. It will inspire you to hit the road and live your best life.
About the Book:
“In the fall of 2017, Mary sold her house and moved into a 16-foot-long travel trailer. The purpose of the move was to find a way to live a better life with debilitating fatigue and seasonal affective disorder. In her first year, she would learn about the unique network of people who live in RVs full time and come to see America, and her place in it, in a totally new light. Within this memoir, each chapter shares an important piece of information about how to live in an RV, including more than seven kinds of places to park and how to dump your black tank uphill. Mary shares how her full-time RV journey has been shaped by her illness, from sleeping at a national monument instead of hiking there to staying ahead of an evacuation so it didn’t turn into more than she could handle. Full-time RV living provides opportunities to people who do not fit well into suburbia for a variety of reasons, including disability. Join Mary as she goes from loss to a year’s worth of new experiences and a new sense of success.” – Mary D’Rozario

Next up on the RVer Gift Guide, music.

Music from Drivin & Vibin

About the Album
“After almost 2 years on the road, we were inspired to create an album about the experiences and connections we’ve made along the way. This lifestyle has taught us so much about ourselves and the world around us and we really wanted to try and capture some of the nuances of nomadic life. Hopefully, these songs can take the listener on a journey of their own.” – Kyle and Olivia

Other Cool Stuff!
Lastly, our RVer Gift Guide wouldn’t be complete without some more traditional items
The Rockbook is perfect for any RVer that enjoys writing in notebooks, but doesn’t have the space for keeping stacks and stacks of notebooks. The Rocketbook lets you write with a pen on reusable paper!! They are so cool, I had to get my own!! I have a regular size (6″ x 8.8″) and a handy mini (3.5″ x 5.5″) that I can take everywhere. Everything I write can be uploaded to my google drive, then I can erase what is in my notebook, and create new notes!!

Seriously, this will allow the RVer in your life to pick and choose what they need or want.
Bonus – the card takes up no space at all.
