RVRebel Girl Channel and Videos are NOT intended for Kids or anyone under the age of 13.

Hi, I am Carolyn, RVrebel Girl. I travel all over the US in my KZ Escape 19.5 foot travel trailer towed by my Ford Transit 250 Van. . I belong to Thousand Trails and Boondockers Welcome which allows me to camp at some unique places for an annual membership fee.

I travel solo with my 4 legged BFF, family companion RV Diva Danni. She was 4 years old Oct 20th. Danni is a Morkie between 4.5-5 pounds looking for K9 ❤️ Love on the road.

We are retired because life is too short and tomorrow is not promised, so Im not gonna put off till tomorrow what Im healthy enough to do today.

Please join me on my travels. I am 100% Nomad a full time RV’r, still need the storage shed base to nest cuz the RV isn’t big enough for all my cowgirl boots and my cloths, but I am workin on it.

  10. Leann 49 on October 15, 2022 at 6:49 am

    Carolyn at 72 I think your doing a great job. I think we all know what our limits are. I fix a similar breakfast that you do but use walnuts instead. Will have to try almonds. Great looking lunch. I do coleslaw with salmon and to me it’s good. Hope your enjoying your day and thanks.

  11. Marie Morrissey on October 15, 2022 at 6:49 am

    I like the way you highlight maintenance and observation as a must do!

  12. Gail Olmsted on October 15, 2022 at 6:50 am

  13. Bella Explores Life on October 15, 2022 at 6:52 am

  14. Frugal RV Gal on October 15, 2022 at 6:52 am

    You do it very well at 66! Salad bowls looked great. Might have to try those bowls.

  15. Suezette Fruge on October 15, 2022 at 6:53 am

    I am 70, 71 next month. Super tired of working and need to retire fairly soon. Not much in the savings and need to be knowledgeable about this new life I want to do. Glad to have found you. Hopefully I can learn some things.

  16. Sporty Nat on October 15, 2022 at 6:55 am

    I’m 74 and just got back from a solo 5 week round trip in my RV van from Calif to Ohio! Had great weather and I enjoyed all the sights along the way! Thanks for your videos! I enjoy following you!

    Your baby is so cute. I had a maltipoo she was only 10 lbs and smart as a whip. When I was still active as a Chaplain she would go crazy blocks away from the rehab and assisted living facilities. I would open the car door and out she would go and jump up and down on the mat outside the door and finally it would open. She was a miracle because when she went to work she would go from lap to lap and I never showed her anything. Your baby Dani must give you great comfort. I now have a cat she is my baby but no where close to a dog.

  19. kenneth poteet on October 15, 2022 at 7:00 am

  22. Mama Wanderlust on October 15, 2022 at 7:02 am

  25. Happy Camper on October 15, 2022 at 7:09 am

    I’m 66 also and sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s not lol. I very rarely go more than 3 hours at a time, but sometimes the loading up and hookup wears my old ass out

  26. BOB JOHNSON on October 15, 2022 at 7:09 am

    Dannie 🙋🏼‍♀️🍑

  29. Sunny Rutter on October 15, 2022 at 7:13 am

    Yummy! Bavarian style oats! Great with a few fresh raspberries and blueberries added in the morning. I usually add a squirt of agave syrup and one drop of vanilla too. When I use cinnamon I like to add golden raisin and let them soak overnight too. That’s so weird that Walmart had no bananas! 😮 Your salad wraps look tasty! I love balsamic!
    Nice day-in-the-life-of, Carolyn! 🤗 Love to you and Danni!

  30. Penny Lee on October 15, 2022 at 7:15 am

  34. Gail Olmsted on October 15, 2022 at 7:17 am

    Be Careful sweetie and keep Dani safe in the seat. One time in my truck a car pulled out right front of me. I had to brake hard and my little girl slid off into the floor. Locally she was alright and not injured. Love Your Channel. Best wishes

  35. Teri B on October 15, 2022 at 7:17 am

    I’m from Illinois and now more than ever I want to break into RV life. I’m hoping to meet a group that I can talk with before I start and make sure it’s a good choice. Do you know of any groups in the Illinois area or nearby states? Thank you! You’re an inspiration 🙂

  39. Dbky Here on October 15, 2022 at 7:23 am

    The salad looked so yummy. I always enjoy watching your videos. I will be glad when I can get out there also (and I am 65 years old lol).

  42. Randy C on October 15, 2022 at 7:26 am

  43. KANDACE PATTERSON on October 15, 2022 at 7:26 am

    You cant even find a used van in my town.

  44. Karun Satheesh on October 15, 2022 at 7:26 am

    I like join with you

  45. joyce lane on October 15, 2022 at 7:28 am

    ya I finally found a u-tuber I can relate to. I am 66 yrs also, I have a 2008 trail light class B plus Rv van that I call my home on the road. I was taking care of my boyfriend for the past 3 years while he battled with cancer. He passed away last thanksgiving and now I am on my own again. We did some wonderful travels in my Rv before he got too sick. So I’m looking forward to going on the road by myself, but I get nervous thinking about traveling all by myself so it gives me courage when I watch your videos. I figure if you can do it so can I , I also have a sweet fur baby named “Buddy” that is going to be traveling with me.🐶 He is an English springer spaniel. Thanks for doing what you do. Happy trails!!🚐

  46. James Bonner on October 15, 2022 at 7:29 am
