Have you joined in on the Instagram craze yet? We think it’s the perfect social media hub for the RV enthusiast. Even if you can’t RV 24/7, looking at campers in pretty locations is almost as good.
Signing up for Instagram is easy, but finding great accounts to follow can be tricky. Here are our favorite Instagram accounts for folks that love RVing.
Go RVing (@gorving)
When it comes to great pictures of RVs in magnificent locations from coastal Maine to Southern California, GO RVing’s Instagram account is the mother ship. Their gallery provides daily inspiration for your next great road trip.
Go Parks (@goparks)
For stunning photographs that celebrate the beauty and historical significance of our National Parks, National Seashores, and National Historic sites there is no better gallery. From sunrises glowing through Mesa Arch in Utah to black and white photos of John Muir in Yosemite, this account will help you find your park!
Vintage Camper Trailers (@vintagecampertrailers)
Can’t get enough of fun photos of vintage trailers from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s? Then this gallery is for you! Vintage Camper Trailers features teardrops and canned hams and every historical oddity in-between! The classic cars that are often matched as tow vehicles are just the icing on the cake!
Hip Camp (@hipcamp)
Those of you who like to wander off the beaten track and park your rigs in more adventurous places like “farms, vineyards, and nature preserves” will find much information and inspiration in Hip Camp’s gallery.
Monica Bennett (@j5mm_blog) We love Monica Bennett’s RV-centric photography of the Pacific Northwest so much that we asked her to provide the cover image for our book, The Idiot’s Guide to RV Vacations. Monica’s photos are filled with romance, wanderlust, and perhaps most importantly, the delicious local foods that she cooks while camping.
Mandy Lea (@mandyleaphoto)
We started following Mandy Lea after hearing a great interview with her on the Girl Camper podcast in iTunes. She describes herself as a “Full time teardropper, full time photographer, and full time adventurer” and her gallery has the dazzling photos to prove it. Her feed is jam packed with waterfalls, mountains, and deserts. Take us there!
Jonathan Irish (@jonathan_irish)
This National Geographic contributor has a dream—traveling to, and photographing, all 59 U.S. National Parks during the 2016 centennial. His pictures, like the parks themselves, are magnificent and breathtaking. We hope a coffee table book is in the works.
Peter Holcombe (@peterholcombe)
Peter Holcombe is a professional photographer and kayaker who travels full time with his family in a Class B RV. For beautiful photos of mountains and rivers with an emphasis on kayaking there is no better account. His wife and daughter also crush rapids on the kayak and they are featured in many of the photographs!
As RV enthusiasts, Instagram is our favorite social media platform since we can enjoy beautiful images of camping even when we can’t be out in the RV. Follow these eight great Instagram accounts for your daily dose of RV therapy!
Jeremy and Stephanie Puglisi are the co hosts of the weekly RV Family Travel Atlas and Campground of the Week podcasts, as well as the creators of the RVFTA Podcast Network. They are also the authors of The Idiots Guide to RV Vacations and the Acadia National Park Adventure Guide. After buying their very first pop up camper six years ago, Jeremy and Stephanie caught the RV bug in a big way, and now spend over 70 nights a year in their travel trailer with their three sons, Theo, Max, and Wes, and sweet Maggie the pup.
