DriveBy Tourists RV Modifications and Upgrades
We read everyone else’s blog, so you don’t need to!
Even before we bought our 2021 Thor Tiburon 24RW motorhome, we read everything we could on what worked well, what didn’t work at all, and what was missing from this RV. Full-time RV living adds a whole layer of items that you must carry at all times that just aren’t needed by weekend campers. Tools and security items as well as household basics, clothing, sufficient food and all of our electronics must be with us at all times.
In addition, we must be comfortable in our RV as it is now also our home. While some piece inside the RV, like the bed, may be adequate for a weekend getaway, it may not be good enough to sleep in every night.
On this page we share with you the different upgrades, modifications and hacks that have improved our home.

It’s pretty simple. We want to view the outside and inside of our RV and view the cameras from any device, at any time. We don’t want to pay monthly subscriptions, but we also don’t want to configure a Linux system to do a DIY hack of a camera system.
Here’s a review and comparison of Logitech’s Circle 2 cameras versus the WYZE Camera system. We tried them both. Let us know what you think

Getting stable, reasonable, non-throttled, internet for your motor-home/RV is damned near ridiculous. RVer’s are stuck with a couple of less than perfect options: shared RV Park WIFI (never a good choice), or get your data from the cell-phone companies cellular tower.
We did the research, which led us to a great solution that works quite well: Visible’s cellular network combined with the PERFECT mini-travel router to provide stable internet access to all our devices

Disposable batteries are terrible products. Rechargeable batteries, on the other hand can last up to 2000+ charges; you will never run out, and will not cause any waste. I put an entire batch of 40 batteries to the test.
