What is your all-time favorite place to campervan in the US?

Ah, there are so many! I don’t think I can name just one. California has to be one of my favorites overall places; there are so many national and state parks all within a few hours of each other, so you could spend a few days or even a week or two bouncing from one spot to another. If I could suggest a route, it would be to visit Death Valley National Park, Sequoia National Park, and Alabama Hills. Or you can drive up the PCH, which is one of the most beautiful drives in the entire world.

What spot is on your bucket list to campervan in the US?

I would love to spend a few weeks campervanning across Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona! I’ve visited Utah and Colorado before but only got a glimpse of what there is out there! I’ve never been to New Mexico or Arizona, and there are a couple of places that I would love to visit, such as White Sands National Park and Antelope Canyon.

What is your go-to campervan meal?

I’m a sucker for pasta! When I’m on the road, I rarely have time to cook, so I like to make my meals as simple as possible. You can grab pasta from any grocery store and a small jar of sauce. My go-to is gnocchi with pesto! If you’re feeling fancy, you can even top it off with some pre-cooked Italian sausage or meatballs and parmesan cheese. Having a TAB campervan with a fridge really comes in handy!

What is the top tip you’d give to people who don’t campervan often or are headed out on their first trip?

Reserve a campground early! As fun as it is parking on the side of the road and calling it a night, having a campground to go to with showers, bathrooms, water, and electricity makes life a lot easier.
