RV social groups are the glue that holds the community together!
Many social groups are all open all RVers. They often host group rallies in snowbird states like Texas, Arizona, and Florida.
Other social groups are open to those of a shared interest or background. If you’re a full-timing family learning to “road-school,” you’ll find a supportive network of people just like you.
