Hitting The Road w/ Marc & Julie of RVLove.com

Do you have an insatiable desire to hit the road in an RV full time? Do you want the opportunity to go on the great American road trip without the need for costly hotels or scary motels?

Joining me today are a couple that have been full-time RV’ing for the last 4.5 years, and who during that time have visited all 50 states, summered in Maine and wintered in Alaska, written a book that was just recently published by Simon and Schuster (and which can even be found in Costco!) and who are NOT retired, Marc and Julie Bennett from RVlove.com.
