Bed Bound - Looking for favorite reading/video's about Travel Trailers and Camping!

I just had my knee redone (blew out both knees last year just before camping season).


Since I am bored out of my mind and will be stuck in bed for the next week, I was hoping you could share some of your favorite You Tube Channels or sites to read.


We just bought a new 2019 Wildwood 30KQBSS after trading in our 2011 Crossroads Slingshot. We need to re-outfit all of our organization stuff, start making the camper our second home with pictures, decorations etc. And start thinking of good Modifications to get this camper setup well.


I am into technology so things like swapping lights out, adding interior dimmers, upgrading things are some of the things we like to do to our camper.


Our dealer is adding in Max Air Fans, the new Furrion S Model Observation Camera and dual batteries. I will also be adding my Propane Monitoring system, a custom Grill mount for the rear for my Webber Q and Blackstone Grill so it will swing by the outdoor kitchen when in use.

Here's my YouTube channel - it's a combination of stuff from LearnToRV and from my family's experience as fulltimers. (shrug) It might only be interesting to us, though. Mostly short videos of little experiences and a couple of RV mods and whatnot.

I don't make anything from it, so hopefully it's OK to share:

First, I wish you well on your recovery.

There are a lot of good RV related youtube channels and videos. In addition to the already suggested, I also like to watch those from:

Keep Your Daydream
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEh...f_DHLZQ/videos

The Long Long Honeymoon
https://www.youtube.com/user/walkaboutgroup/videos

Youtube will also suggest channels based on what people who watch the channels you view also view. It's a neat thing and I often find myself up way too late a night because I was sucked into watching "just one more youtube video"....

Interesting couple and very interesting kids ... not necessarily in the good kind of "interesting". But not really bad, either. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Not sure how to explain it.

I did watch a couple of folks lose their minds when they found out "Keep Your Daydream" were going to be parked with us. This guy seriously fangirled it. I had no idea who they were!

I've also met the Less Junk, More Journey folks. Down to earth. I just find it a little off-putting to constantly see the multiple cameras out.

Utube to watch

[I]Since I am bored out of my mind and will be stuck in bed for the next week, I was hoping you could share some of your favorite You Tube Channels or sites to read.

You didn't specifically say you wanted RV related videos or if you did I missed it. I am of the school that Laughter is the Best Medicine, and this lady makes me laugh like mad. Hope you heal soon!


Jeanne Robertson humorist speaker Official Site Book for business meetings, conventions, keynote speeches. Toastmasters Golden Gavel award winner for funny stuff. Online humor store books, videos, audio tapes.. She's all over You Tube.

On the lighter side. Find a copy of the old Lucy movie, The Long Long Trailer. Enjoy and get better soon.

Congratulations on your knee replacement. Keep up with the therapy and push past the pain.
Had mine done 2 and a half years ago. one of the Best things I ever did.
I worked hard and now I have no pain at all and i can not even tell that it is not my own knee. I went from being in a wheel chair to hiking and camping and gardening. Hang in there.
