Marc and Tricia, founders of Keep Your Daydream, are seasoned RV and travel experts. They’ve traveled to all 50 states, visited 4 countries, and put over 100,000 miles as a family in their RV.
Throughout their journey, they’ve encouraged others to embrace the unique ways that people and families travel.
The Backstory of Keep Your Daydream
Like many full-time RVers Marc and Tricia of Keep Your Daydream, were attracted to the RV lifestyle by the freedom of having less “stuff.” Their lives revolved around regularly organizing the stuff they kept acquiring. They dreamed of the day it could happen, but then asked themselves, “What could we do right now?”
This simple question led to their mantra of “Start small – start now!” This mantra is lived out in their family travels. They started with what they had and upgraded as their travel needs changed.
Kids, Family, Pets
Marc and Tricia have three kids, Victoria, Carson and Caleb. Victoria traveled with the family when the family first started on the road, but later settled to focus on school.
Carson and Caleb have been present for the majority of the travels, but take time to explore their personal areas of interest. In July 2019, the family welcomed an English Cream Golden Retriever, Charlie, to their journey.
How Long Have They Been RVing?
Keep Your Daydream has been traveling since May 27, 2016. They’ve traveled extensively, spending time in Mexico, Canada, New Zealand and all 50 states.
What Type of RV Does Keep Your Daydream Travel With?
Keep Your Daydream started with a Northland travel trailer and they towed it with a 2013 Ford F150. Marc and Tricia then upgraded to a Grand Design Reflection 312BHTS towed by a 2017 Ford F250 diesel.
Their next step up was to a massive Grand Design Momentum 351 toy hauler towed by a 2019 Ford F450.
They’re currently in an Airstream Flying Cloud 30’ bunkhouse towed by a 2019 Ford F250.
Throughout their journeys they’ve added solar to their rigs and made numerous modifications to their tow vehicles. One recurring upgrade to their tow vehicles has been to maximize their fuel tank size.
Other upgrades during their adventures have been disk brakes, onboard air compressors, and a recent fan favorite has been the air horn that could compete with most 18-wheelers. Their upgrades are not made on a whim and it is evident that thorough research is always done for each modification.
Not only do they document the upgrades for their YouTube channel, but for a majority of the upgrades, they do a corresponding blog post on their website.
