About Us

Since 2005, we’ve been making the RV ownership experiences more accessible, less intimidating, and more enjoyable!

Originally founded by Charlie and Landra Kerekes, Changing Gears is your gateway to RV ownership. If you’re looking for advice on choosing or buying an RV, starting your full-time journey, or tips on manufacturer construction quality, you’ll find it here.

Trade those city lights for the freedom of the RV lifestyle. You’ll never look back!

Our home in the Raccoon Valley Escapees RV Park, about 6 miles north of Knoxville, in the small community of Heiskell.

After fourteen years in Dallas, Charlie and Landra decided to leave thir 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.

The site lay dormant for several years. In June 2021, Changin’ Gears was acquired by Andy Herrick. He’s an RV industry professional, a camper, traveler, blogger, and big fan of the nomadic RV lifestyle!

We’re proud to carry on their work, and we welcome you to the new Changing Gears website! Our goal is to become the #1 reference website for new or experienced RV owners.

Unlike some “other” RV sites, we don’t use AI-written content or plagiarize work. We provide reference-style content you can bookmark in your browser and check when you need it.

If you have a suggestion for a reference guide, we’d love to hear from you! We write to serve RVers. If you have some knowledge of your own you’d like to share, consider writing for us.
