Birth of Changin' Gears
After fourteen years in Dallas, Charlie and Landra decided to leave their jobs, sell their home and most of their possessions, and plunged into the RV lifestyle as full-time RVers.
From 2004 to 2006, the Kerekes roamed North America in their rig as full-time RVers. They founded Changin’ Gears in 2005. Read their old travelogue stories here.
In June 2021, Changin’ Gears was acquired by Sterling RV Solutions, an RV solutions company founded in 2020. We’re proud to carry on their work, and we welcome you to the new Changing Gears website!
WayfindingWheels was merged with Changing Gears in December 2022. You can find all their original content on this site!
