What is your camping dream? The RV Women’s Alliance (RVWA) wants you to share that dream, and start to see those dreams come true. With a new initiative called My Camping Dream, the RVWA is working with RV companies and experts within the RV industry to act as Guides to help steer you closer to your dream.
The vision of the RV Women’s Alliance is to “Elevate the roles and contributions women make to the RV Industry by promoting diversity and providing programs, resources, and a collaborative environment.” What better way to give legs to that vision than by kicking off My Camping Dream.
My Camping Dream is composed of three components: Share A Dream, Answer A Dream, and Find A Dream. By utilizing the new My Camping Dream website, all three visions can be realized. With space for a photo and comments, the site feels like a modern interpretation of a bulletin board full of polaroid photos. Each dream that you share allows space to upload a photo and add comments.
Share A Dream means just that, sharing a dream you have about camping or RVing. Perhaps it’s that new RV, or your first RV ever. It may be that trip to Devils Tower you’ve been dreaming about since you were a kid. Your dream might simply be an add-on accessory for your camper that will be the last piece to making your perfect camping dream come true.
Answer a dream
Answer A Dream is for those industry Guides that are a part of the My Camping Dream project. RVWA Executive Director Sandy Ellington’s purpose in creating My Camping Dream was to take advantage of the unique position that the RV industry has found itself in. An attitude of helpfulness abounds throughout the RV industry right now as campgrounds, manufacturers, and RV dealers come together to support those RVers ready to safely get back out on the road and start RVing again. One way to support them is to provide information and resources to those that are sharing their dream.
For example, if you shared a dream that you would like to move up to a diesel pusher motorhome, but were nervous about driving one, a Guide might provide you with links to driving courses or a conversation thread about others discussing the same issue. A dreamer expressing that their dream is to get back to Myrtle Beach might get great campground suggestions from a Guide, as well as a personal experience testimony.
Find a dream
Find A Dream is for seekers. Perhaps you’ve already seen your dreams come true and need some new ideas. Maybe you just want to see what kind of RVs others are dreaming about to gauge whether your dreams are too lofty, or too small. It may be you don’t have any specific advice to give, but you want to offer encouragement, support, and your own experience to another dreamer.
My Camping Dream is a place to go where you can share your dream without fear of snide or snarky remarks. You don’t provide any personal information, it’s simply a fun new way to dream about a shared love of the great outdoors and all things RVing and camping, with no negative talk.
All around RV industry enthusiast who has been RVing for 8 years and enjoys trips with his wife and dogs in their diesel pusher.
I have always wanted to go it alone. Alaska is my first stop. Because of the job I do there is a workamping gig I can do PT and see Alaska with my RV. After I am done there then head down the coast to California, redwoods, San Francisco, Yosemite and then I 40 thru Texas. I am actually planning this and hope to do this in 2 years.

My dream for this year was spending 2 weeks with friends at Grand Ole RV resort in Nashville and enjoying all that music city had to offer…well that trip put on hold until who knows when.
So in the mean time we will be doing 4 to 5 nights trips in upstate NY which we have 4 booked to date.
Until that happens my wife and I have been spending a few evenings around the fire pit next to our class c listening to music…with cocktail in hand dreaming of what could have been and what lies ahead.
My wife and I have been married over 20 years. We have had a motorhome for around 15 years of our marriage. Together we have taken one trip through the central US states. Another trip was through the south states.
Our Dream trip . . .
My wife had a stroke in 2013. We were planning to continue our travels in our motorhome through the north US states. Not really sure if that trip will ever take place. We have not given up on this trip yet, but as time moves on, it seems more out of reach more and more. The future will tell if this dream trip even happens I guess.
We have been in all but around 8 US states together so far. We are both 65 years old now.
And time moves on . . .
