Marshall Wendler

Hitting the road in early 2014 as a full-time RVer was the realization of a life-long dream. After 2400+ nights camping and 7+ years later, I'm just getting started.

RVing Highlights

  • With almost two decades of experience and study in the world of RVing, I am a seasoned expert and am well-equipped to help others make the most of this exciting lifestyle.
  • Spent almost 7 years as a full-timer in a travel trailer before transitioning into part-time RVing in late 2020. Started living full-time vanlife in 2023.
  • I prefer to boondock and tend to avoid campgrounds unless absolutely necessary (last true campground stay was in September 2018).

Marshall And Camp Addict

I bring a unique skill set to Camp Addict. As the co-founder, I definitely have more than one job description, but what I enjoy most is sharing what I've learned over thousands of nights of camping.

I certainly don't know it all, and am the first to admit when I don't know something, but I do enjoy sharing what RVing knowledge I have accumulated.

First Stop - Aircraft Mechanic

As a former aircraft mechanic, I have always had a passion for aviation and an easy understanding of how machines work.

My career in this field, though relatively short at around eight years, taught me invaluable skills such as critical analysis and the confidence to tackle even the most complex mechanical issues.

These skills have served me well in my various pursuits and continue to be an asset in my personal and professional life.

Explaining So All Can Understand

As a skilled communicator with a talent for breaking down complex and technical subjects, I have been able to make a valuable contribution to Camp Addict.

My ability to translate complicated topics in a way that is easy for even the most inexperienced individuals to understand has proven to be an asset for the site.

With my business partner Kelly as a constant sounding board, I am able to ensure that my writing is clear, concise, and accessible to all.

Whether you're a seasoned pro or a complete newcomer, I'm here to help you make sense of even the most technical subjects and make the most of your RVing journey.

Making Things Work

In addition to producing top-quality content for Camp Addict, I also handle the behind-the-scenes work that keeps the site running smoothly.

While it's a lot of work, I take pride in ensuring that our website and business operate at the highest level. I know firsthand that running a successful website is no easy feat.

At Camp Addict, we strive to set ourselves apart by providing valuable, reliable information for RV enthusiasts of all levels.

Whether I'm writing articles or handling the technicalities, I'm dedicated to helping others make the most of their RVing journey.
