Finding information on ANY subject concerning RVing and full-time RVing can be really frustrating. Before Camp Addict, there was no 'go-to', one-stop resource website out there for camping and RV'ing. The best you could usually find was a blog reviewing a product or that talked about black tanks. Or you might have gambled on trusting a stranger's opinion in a forum. Amazon has product ratings but who can trust those? Many companies pay people to create fake reviews.
This is why Camp Addict was created. Our goal is to be your #1 complete resource for learning about all aspects of RVing and camping. We will also be recommending the best products and services you may need to make your camping life as fun, comfortable and easy as it's supposed to be.
Who Is Behind Camp Addict?
WE started Camp Addict. Who are 'we'? We are two full-time RV'ers, Kelly Beasley (myself) and Marshall Wendler. We met through a mutual friend, through the internet, by Jennifer Nealy of Nealys on Wheels. (Crazy new world we live in, eh?)
Marshall and I had in common that we were the same age and we were both singles living full-time in travel trailers. Persons like us are not very common.
There aren't too many of 'our kind' out there. Couples? Tons. Singles? Barely any. Especially our age.
So we decided to start caravanning together. After a while, we realized we made a really great team. So we started a company together in May of 2016, which went very well.
Recently however, we realized that there was no 'go-to' website for all things RV'ing and camping for information and reviews for RVing products we might need or want.
We made the executive decision to pause working on a website we were developing to dive into creating an all-in-one RVing resource ourselves. And just like that, Camp Addict was born.
We knew we had the perfect combined skills, RV'ing friends, experience and tools to create the most comprehensive and successful website about all things RV'ing. And sometimes, we get a little silly.
This website was right up our alley. Having been full-time RV'ing for a combined 6 years, we are 'in the know' about the ins and outs of RV life. We are mostly boondockers, we have lots of other full time RV'ing friends and resources, and 6 years of full-time RV'ing under our belts.
Nothing has felt more right for us than creating a place where you can get all the answers you need about RV'ing.
Kelly left the world of suburbia back in 2015. With a house too big for her and her two tiny dogs, a job that had gone stale years prior, she found herself totally free to live a nomadic life. With rental income, a part-time mobile job, and nothing else holding her back, she hit the road in May of 2015.
Kelly lives out of a 24' Crossroads Slingshot travel trailer. Almost exclusively boondocking, she and her pups enjoy wide open spaces out west. Chasing the weather is a hobby. Work is her primary daily routine, but exploring is a big part of this lifestyle and she of course hikes and explores nearby towns whenever possible.
Marshall has lived in his 24'Lance travel trailer since April of 2014. He got a mobile job, like Kelly, and hit the road and has not looked back. Living stationary may never be a thing for him ever again. He thoroughly enjoys aviation, boats, and life on the road. Marshall is crazy good at all things internet. His back-end skills and research skills complimented Kelly's writing, researching, and design skills.
Together, Camp Addict was formed. We are very happy with how it is doing so far and look forward to the future of Camp Addict!
