The Russos Switch from Van Life to Truck Camper Life – Truck Camper Adventure
Back in 2015, Joe and Kait Russo sold their home, quit their jobs, bought an RV and left the safety and comfort of home for a new beginning—life on the road. What started as a one-year vacation and a chance to do some traveling turned into an adventure with no end date, new careers, and a new understanding of what it means to truly live the life you want. During their first few months on the road, Joe and Kait began posting blogs to update friends and family about their travel. That led to posting videos on YouTube and slowly, they found that they were reaching far beyond their network of loved ones. They also realized this new reach could be the key to allowing them to extend their nomadic life indefinitely. Since then, the Russos have built a travel brand—We’re The Russos—consisting of a popular website, a YouTube channel with millions of total views, and a loyal following of fellow travelers and dreamers. They are passionate about inspiring others to take risks and pave their own road to fulfillment.
TCA: Welcome to the truck camper community, Joe and Kait. We were excited to learn you bought a truck camper. Can you tell us a little about yourselves?
WTR: Thank you for having us Mike. We’ve been traveling full-time since 2015. During that time, we’ve been to 46 states and three Canadian provinces in different types of rigs and we’ve also traveled internationally. Shortly after we hit the road in 2015, we started a content creation business which is what allows us to continue living this lifestyle.
TCA: How long had you been full-timing and what type of rigs did you travel in?
WTR: We started in a class A RV towing a Jeep Wrangler and lived out of that for about a year and a half. Then we downsized to a class B van in 2017 and lived out of different types of vans for almost three years.
TCA: Why did you decide to switch from a van and get a truck camper?
