It was just over two years ago, that Ben and I were living in New Zealand, feeling like our lives were going exactly nowhere, and not sure how we were going to get out of the boring life we’d created for ourselves. I had already started this blog RVObsession.com and was loving doing all the …

Can I just start with a prelude to this post about RV computer desks… I’m hoping that it goes without saying that this post is only going to apply to those people who will be either wanting or needing to use their computers from their RVs, and are therefore looking for an appropriate computer desk. …

Road Trip Around Australia - in case you were wondering why there has been such a long absence from RVObsession. But we have been RVing... sortof.

Have you ever wanted to go on a big road trip around Australia? It’s been my dream ever since I lived in Sydney for 10 years. And now, we’re on that journey. It’s not in the RV that I had hoped it would be, but it’s in a camper trailer / tent trailer which is …

RVing Australia - I thought it was a lofty dream to be able to take off and travel all around Australia, taking our time to see all the amazing sights. But as it works out, with a bit of planning and a lot of compromise, it can be done.
