Are you an RVer? Have you looked online for RV Travel Blogs in search of information on campgrounds, destinations, routing, and any other RV topic? Are they meeting your needs?

No one Needs a Travel Blog – that’s the truth!

But…. you don’t need a travel blog but what if you want one? If you want to share your adventure stories and photos, potentially earn a bit of income and create a following of fans then the answer is yes! You need a travel blog for RVers!

Travel Blog for RVers are for Sharing Information

Many RVers enjoy sharing their travel stories, posting pictures, videos and information on what they’ve discovered along the way. Those friends or family at home are often quite eager to hear about the adventures you’re having. They look forward to seeing the photos and hearing all about the exciting events the RV travel blogger is participating in.  Other RVers are also searching for information and if you can provide them with that information you’re succeeding.

Travel Blogs can Earn You Money

I would be lying if I said you couldn’t make money from a travel blog but adding to that is “You have to be prepared to work at it”. It’s definitely not easy but also not impossible.

I’m not kidding – there is a lot of work involved in making your travel blog successful. Each of us have different expectations as to what will be a success or not!

You don’t just create a travel blog one day with a few stories about your adventures and then start making money. It won’t happen. There’s a process and a lot of work that has to be done and it won’t happen over night.

Realistically, even with a ton of work don’t expect the money to start rolling in for at least 6 months to a year and that’s with constant work. Even then it won’t be exactly rolling in – more like a trickle. If you’re not prepared to work at your travel blog regularly, then maybe it’s time for you to read something else. But, if you’re ready to commit – keep reading.

How to Create a Travel Blog for RVers

Setting up a travel blog doesn’t have to be difficult  – in fact it can be set up quickly so don’t panic. You may even find out how creative you can be and really enjoy the process. 

Two Methods for Creating your Travel Blog for RVers

  1. and/or FREE
  • The easiest and cheapest is by using or They’re both free and not too difficult to set up. They allow you to set up your blog on their accounts using free themes, or template designs. Your blog address would be something like or Use your imagination and create a name that relates to you and your travels. These types of blogs can be set up in a matter of hours and are easy to update.
  • Both and have clear setup instructions with videos showing you how to do each step.
  • You don’t need to purchase a domain name or pay for hosting. If you’re just wanting to post your travel photos or update your adventure stories for your family or friends – this is a good way to do it.
  • NEGATIVE ON USING THIS METHOD: You do not own your blog. If you choose to monetize it – in the hopes of making a few dollars this is NOT the best way to create your Travel Blog for RVers. Plus, at anytime both of these programs may shut down and you have absolutely nothing to say about it.
  • However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a small free travel blog just to share with your friends and it can be changed in the future if you should decide you want more. So don’t put pressure on yourself.

2. The second Option – Self-Hosted Blog – The best way in my opinion

This entails purchasing a domain name – that you now own, pay for hosting, and using (FREE). You have control over it – it’s all yours!

If you have hopes of expanding your travel blog in the future, self-hosting is a must, which means you will need to find a server to host your travel blog and register your name as a domain name (web address). It’s not expensive and it gives you exclusivity to the name for as long as you pay the small yearly fee.

Owning your domain name and hosting on your own site gives you ownership of both and no one can take it away from you. If your plan is to monetize your site and hopefully make money from it you’ll need to be self-hosted. I recommend that you go that route at the beginning rather than decide later and then have to transfer everything over. It’s a pain!

For domain registration I use Godaddy and for my self-hosting I use Siteground, and am very happy with it. Their customer service is excellent and they have a really good reputation.

Adding Content to your Travel Blog

It’s up to you what your blog is about. Will you do RV Park reviews, destination information, RV tips, photos, or maybe your own adventures? This is where you use your creativity and add the content you think people are looking for or want to see. It’s entirely up to you to make this travel blog for RVers, what you want it to be. Now’s your time to shine!

Scheduling your Blog

Don’t think of it as a chore. When I’m travelling I usually update my diary every morning, documenting what I did the day before. Updating your travel blog can be done the same way: daily, weekly or whenever you have something important or interesting to share.

You’ll quickly realize that those at home or fellow RVers are checking your travel blog regularly and are interested in your adventures and information you share. That’s a good enough reason to take the time to set up your travel blog for RVers. It’s definitely worth the effort.

Keep it simple – when creating your first travel blog

Don’t get overwhelmed! There’s no need to be worried and think you can’t create your own travel blog because you can. You have knowledge and stories other RVers would love to hear and learn about. Creating a Travel Blog for RVers should be on your “To Do” list.
