Using Reflectix to Keep Your RV Cooler

Triple digit temps in an RV can be a challenge. Using Reflectix can help keep the interior cooler.

New Mexico in July.

This wasn’t in the original plans.

Most of the time we can follow the weather and not stay where it’s too cold or too hot.

But plans are Jello. Ours jiggled in an unexpected way and so here we sit in temps ranging from 95-105.

Nomad Family Video Interview

What obstacles did you overcome to get on the road? Why did you choose an RV? What did your friends and family think about the idea?

We don sunglasses and interview like rock stars answering these questions and more in this 15 minute YouTube video.

Well, maybe like road-weary, aging rock stars on a reunion (aka “we’re broke from being rehab again”) tour.

At any rate, thanks to the folks...
