RV living has existed since early caravans were utilized as a necessity for living purposes. When the luxury Airstream “land yacht” was born, a whole new standard of RV living was born with it.
One typically thinks of an elderly retired couple living out their last great adventure when considering RV living. However, with the upswing of more telecommuting jobs and other ways of making money on the road, we are seeing more full-time RVers in their 30’s and 40’s and full-time RVing families. In this age of technology we are also able to share in their adventures through blogging.
The following blogs offer a variety of individuals who decided to forgo the traditional for the unconventional life of RV living in an Airstream.
Mali Mish is a fun and colorful little blog that follows a family’s exciting life on the road. Croatian for “little mouse,” Mali Mish is the Airstream’s name – which has been travelling off and on since 2008. While Mali Mish is not technically a full-timer blog, since the adventures only last a couple of weeks at the most, this one is definitely worth a peek.
Aluminum Bliss’s motto is “Dream. Do. Live. Repeat.” That is certainly what this couple did. With two dogs in tow, this family sold all of their belongings and set out on the road in 2009.

The adventure is still online, however, and very much so worth reading.

Deb and Kim initially planned on using their used Airstream as a reiki studio, but eventually changed their minds and set out on their own RV living adventure.
