"Naturally the Best in RVs"

Florida Outdoors RV decided to put together a list of some of the best RV blogs on the World Wide Web. There are 1000s of dedicated RVers and 100s of those blog on a regular basis. Thanks to the Hitch Up and Go website for already compiling such an extensive list! We've gone through dozens and dozens of blogs. We have come up with some of the best RV Blogs in the industry! Those who are picked can proudly 'wear' the "Top 50 RV Blogs of 2013" badge on their website! We love to see people who regularly share their stories while on the open road. We are excited about the launch of the very first "Top 50 RV Blogs!"


We based our decision on a couple of factors. Blogs didn't have to meet all of them, but did need to meet at least one. We tried to stay away from RV industry (business) blogs as well.


1. Popularity (e.g. Fan base, interaction between blogger and reader)

2. Great content (e.g. Engaging, interesting, useful)

3. Current (e.g. If the last post was from 2012, it wasn't included)

4. Page Rank (e.g. This was actually an indication of popularity)

5. Well Designed (e.g. It was easy to look at, read and navigate)

6. Active in the RV Community


To add the Top 50 RV Blogs Badge to your website simply add this code:
