Julianne G. Crane writes about the RVing and camping lifestyles for newspapers and online sites. She was been hooked on RVing from her first rig in the mid-1980s, a grossly under-powered Toyota Dolphin class C motorhome. “It was really cute, but it couldn’t climb hills worth a darn.”
Between 2000-2007, she was a features reporter for The Spokesman-Review newspaper in Spokane, Wash. One of her popular columns was Wheel Life about RVing in the Pacific Northwest.
Then, in 2008, Crane started publishing RV Wheel Life.com. She currently writes a syndicated column about RVing distributed by MotorMatters.biz, an automotive content provider serving USA newspapers. She regularly contributes to online RV outlets including RVTravel.com, Women RVers.blogspot.com and RV Short Stops.com. Thousands of her articles, posts and photographs have appeared in newspapers, magazines and online.
She and her husband, Jimmy Smith, keep a homebase in southern Oregon, while they continue to explore North America in their 19-foot 2012 Chalet pop-up hard-sided A-frame travel trailer. Over the years they have owned every type of RV except a big class A. “Our needs change and thankfully, there’s an RV out there that fits every lifestyle.”
