Learning things the hard way can take the fun out of RVing really fast.

Imagine purchasing your dream RV and a month into your journey realizing:

You have an existing leak that costs thousands of dollars to fix.

You hook up your RV systems incorrectly causing permanent damage to your RV.

The RV you wanted isn’t the RV you needed, and you lose money trading it for a new one. This could easily be a $10,000 + mistake.

RVers Online University will make sure you are ready for the challenges of RV life whether you are a weekend camper, a full-time RVer, or anywhere in between.

Why RVers Online University?

Escapees RV Club has been in the business of RV education and training for decades. Since 1978, we’ve been providing education and advocacy for all RVers. 

With RVOU, we take our famous RVers Boot Camp online and expand it with additional content. Whether you are a weekend RVer, want to pursue full-time RVing, or find yourself anywhere in between, we want to help take the stress out of RV living and help you make the right choices to stay out of the repair shop and on the road. 

We’re going to make sure you enter the RV life with your eyes wide open!

Our RV Foundations course will walk you through the operation, safety, and maintenance of your RV with expert instructor and long-time RVer, Jim Koca. We’ll take the mystery out of the various systems of your RV and show you how to maintain it so you can avoid unnecessary and expensive repairs. You’ll also learn about RV and personal safety while camping so that if a problem happens, you will be prepared. 

Our Roadmap to Full-Time RVing course will guide you along the path towards your new full-time RV life. We’ll help you change your stationary life into a mobile one, and make sure you understand fully what you are getting into, so you won’t regret your decision to go full-time. Taught by full-timers Brandon Hatcher and Kerensa Durr, this comprehensive course will help get you on the road quickly and smoothly.

RV Foundations - Operation, Safety, and Maintenance

RV Operation, Safety, and Maintenance

RVs are complex vehicles which require more maintenance than you might expect. 

This course will teach you how to properly and safely operate and maintain your RV. 

Every year, RV owners spend time in repair shops after something breaks due to poor operation or maintenance. We built this course to keep you out of the shop and on the road. 

We’ll show you how to properly set up your RV, operate the systems safely, and how to maintain the various components of your RV. We’ll also show you how to be prepared in case of an emergency so that you can travel in your RV with confidence for a weekend outing or for extended stays on the road. 

If you have just started RVing, or are thinking of purchasing an RV to travel in, the RV Foundations – RV Operation, Safety, and Maintenance course is for you.

Learn to Live in an RV

Learn to live in an RV - Roadmap to Full-Time RVing

Roadmap to Full-Time RVing

Living full-time in an RV isn’t difficult, but it is different. 

When you don’t have a traditional home, simple things like mail, voting, banking, and more become more complex.

This course will make the transition to full-time RVing easy. Not only will we help you understand what is the right RV for you, and the features you should look for in a full-time RV, but we’ll also show you how to transition your personal life onto the road. 

We’ll cover everything from finding campsites, budgeting, getting healthcare, staying connected, choosing the right RV, and tips and tricks that other full-timers use to have the most fun with the least stress on the road!

Whether you are a new RVer or a seasoned camper looking to go full-time or do long-term seasonal camping, the RVOU – Roadmap to Full-Time RVing course is for you.

Your RVOU Instructors

Jim Koca - RVOU Instructor

Jim Koca
RV Foundations Instructor

I’m a retired police officer and police academy director with over 40 years of service and currently a reserve deputy for Reagan County Texas. 

I specialized in collision reconstruction, investigating the causes and consequences of vehicle collisions. This has given me a unique perspective on vehicle safety, enabling me to train officers across the country.

I share this information with RVers through numerous columns and programs, including RVers Boot Camp and RVers Online University.

Kerensa and Brandon - RVOU Instructors

Brandon Hatcher and Kerensa Durr
Roadmap to Full-Time RVing Instructors

We gave up our lives in the NYC area as designers, corporate trainers, and a university instructor to escape the rat race and live our life of freedom on the road.

We’ve been living full-time in an RV since 2014 and are currently on our second RV (you’ll learn why in the course) and we love it. We have spent our time on the road learning all we can about RVing and the RV industry while making connections with fellow RVers.

We’ll make sure you start off right and avoid the mistakes that we’ve seen countless others make when jumping into the Full-Time RV life. 

30 Days Money Back

Don’t worry!

Once enrolled in this course, you will have lifetime access to the course materials for as long as they live on the web. You will be able to go back and study any section as many times as you like.

As course materials are updated, you will have access to the new materials. If you ever have questions about the course material, you will be able to email the instructors for clarification.

We’ll make sure you are successful when you hit the road so that you can enjoy this lifestyle as much as the thousands of Escapees that have gone before you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get access to the RVOU instructors?

Absolutely! We aren’t going to just give you some information and send you out to figure it out on your own. You can contact your instructors by email and they will get back to you within 48 hours. If we have a topic that generates a lot of questions, we’ll make sure to update the course material to clarify.

What happens after I purchase?

After you make your purchase, you’ll receive a welcome email with all the details you’ll need to log in and get started. You can log in immediately, and you will have access to all of the core lesson videos, handouts, and PDFs. You can go through them at your own pace or jump around as you want. 

How long will I have access to the courses?

You’ll have lifetime access to all the materials for as long as they live on the web. When we make improvements to the course or update the material, you’ll also receive that information. You’ll have plenty of time to make sure you fully understand all the information in the course. 

Do I need to do the lessons in order?

No, but we prefer that you do. The order of our lessons will help to guide you through the learning process. A lot of people like to jump right into shopping for an RV, but we would like you to go through the other lessons first so that you can have a better idea of what you really need before you start shopping.

Can’t I just figure this out on my own?

Sure, if you don’t mind spending a lot of time searching, sifting through wrong information and clutter, and some expensive trial and error buying the wrong RV or spending money on RV gimmicks. And you still won’t know if you found everything you need. We want to save you this headache by giving you a shortcut to full-time RV life. You can learn from the collective experience of the RVers that have come before you. You will always have access to the content including videos, audio, written PDFs, and resources. And, of course, you’ll have access to us to help you along the way!

I already have an RV, will this still be beneficial?

If you want to start full-time or part-time RVing, this course will help. We have had students with previous RV experience and even full-timing experience that have benefited. There is more to living in an RV than just owning one. The logistics of moving your life onto the road and living out of an RV 365 days of the year can be complicated; we’ll help you understand the ins and outs making this lifestyle change.

I only want to travel part-time or snowbird, will it work for me?

Yes, a lot of the same issues come into play when part-timing or snowbirding. This course will still be very beneficial.

What if I realize the course is not for me after I buy it? Can I get a refund?

We have a 30-day happiness guarantee or your money back. Just request a refund with reason within 30 days of purchasing and we’ll give you your money back. Just remember that you’ll miss out on all the live interactions in the group, the Q&As and the bonus material that is unlocked after 30 days.
