Meet our Favourite Australian and International RV Social Influencers

There must be an exhilaration about selling everything up and heading off into the sunset. This blog is about social media influencers that have not only done that, but have documented it through video content and built big audiences (and an income) along the way. Post pandemic, attitudes have changed and coupled with the challenges of housing affordability a nomadic lifestyle is now the big dream for many. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite Australian and internal social influencers.

The rise of digital nomadism has given birth to a unique community of content creators who have traded conventional homes for life on the road in caravans, motorhomes and even vehicles.

These adventurous souls document their journeys on platforms like YouTube, Instagram and TikTok, sharing insights into their travels, the beauty of living minimally, and the challenges they face. And of course the scenery, and the food!! 

Note: Keep an eye out on the production values of some of these channels – they really have replaced television shows in some ways, even to the point of ‘airing’ on a weekly basis on YouTube at the same time, just like our tv shows in the old days! Make sure to let us know who your favourites are! If you keep an eye out you will also note that some of the influencers are starting to cross over into mainstream media as well.

Remember to contact the team at AllBrand Caravan Services for your caravan and motorhome servicing, repairs, upgrades and insurance repairs.
