Ultimate Family Vacation Adventure

RV Families on the Road

The ultimate family vacation adventure: living and traveling full time in an RV, a perpetual road trip with kids, turning simple family camping adventures into odysseys lasting months, years, or even decades. Meet some of the RV families on the road and learn how they RV travel with kids.

Believe it or not, but we're not the only family on this ultimate family vacation adventure. We are part of the 2% of full time RVers who road trip with kids. Though we might go from campground to campground for a while without seeing more families on the road, eventually, we meet up again, and thanks to the power of the internet, we're never really that far away.

Our Family: The Perkins

ultimate-family-vacation-adventure-13; cartoon characters of full time rv family on the road We're the Perkins, Rayven, Ed, William and Sara.

Though we all contribute heavily to this website, mom (Rayven) is the one who writes it all an puts it all together.

We've been living in our RV since Spring 2004, and this is the second RV we have owned.

Currently traveling in a 2005 38' Keystone Hornet Sport Travel Trailer towed by a 2005 Ford F350 Diesel Dually.

In order to afford our RV travel with kids ultimate family vacation adventure, we own (currently) four websites that Ed and I have created, and we also teach students how to build websites at a community college. (We hooked-up the RV in one spot for a few months to get the classes going offline, before we can move them to a totally online setting.)

In addition to this website, RV Travel with Kids, we also own:
  • Stay a Stay at Home Mom
  • Information on Surrogacy

  • RV Camping Rallies for Families

    ~Cedar Creek, Texas, February 2009~

    ultimate-family-vacation-adventure-04; group picture rally february 2009 Our first RV Camping Rally was in Cedar Creek, Texas, February 2009.

    Organized by RV Travel with Kids and Families on the Road, we had a total of four families meet up for a great time!

    The Texas weather varied from dreary, cold, and rainy one day, to breezy and beautiful the next day.

    Of course, it was the potluck day that it decided to rain (go figure).

    The kids all got along wonderfully. Of the nine children present, seven were girls!

    As you can see, it didn't bother my son, William, too much. The girls were all around the same age, which meant lots of Barbies and American Girl dolls. William had fun playing with them, learning to juggle, and playing the Wii(even if it was the princess game).

    In fact, William had the girls chasing him! Here they managed to “hog-tie” him to a tree with a scarf and torture him with tickles and kisses. Poor thing.

    We had the kids decorate cedar fence posts put together to make family signs with everyone's name on them. Its so rare for those who are on a road trip with kids to find a place to store paints, that this was a nice (and messy) treat. The RV park we were staying in had lots of families that were stationary living in the park, so there were even more kids, and a great playground, to play with.

    After our painting project, we had an outdoor potluck, took a tour of each other's RVs, and spend the next few days just enjoying each other's company. It felt good to be around other folks who shared the same ultimate family vacation adventure and to compare notes. Plus, the kids have found new best friends for life.
