If you’ve secretly always wanted to watch me do laundry…today’s your lucky day! Ha!

No, but seriously, here’s the latest “behind-the-scenes” video of our RV life.

This one is about one of my FAVORITE things about our newest motorhome….it has a washer/dryer!!!!

Total game changer!

We definitely don’t miss the laundromat for a SECOND!

Oh, and I don’t get paid to say that I love the washer/dryer, so I’m not bias or anything.
