Melissa Dafnis – ‘RV Dreamin’


Fulltime RVer Melissa Dafnis of Maryland has been living her RV dream for three years.

Since her mid-30s Melissa wanted nothing more than to live and travel in an RV.

“I wanted the lifestyle of freedom and adventure that full-time RVing involves,” says the former professional jockey.  “I love to travel, I love a challenge, I love freedom.  And RVing is all of those things and more.”

She recalls, “I was working seven days a week to pay my mortgage when I had a house, and not able to take many vacations or time off.  I thought there has to be more to life than this.”

Still in her 40s at that time, the solo RVer knew she would need to continue working. “With the Internet, I can run my business from the road as I live, travel, explore and experience as much as life has to offer. There’s no better way to do that than to help other people achieve their dreams. I’m so passionate about this lifestyle that I just have to share it with everyone I meet.”

To that end, Melissa has put together a free podcast series called “Your RV Dream: Discover the Lifestyle, Make Money While You Travel, and Live a Life of Freedom and Adventure”.

This series features interviews with 20 long-time, experienced RVers (including myself) who share their insights on achieving the RV dream. There is no fee to listen to the interviews in the release period from May 8 to 19.

Just register for the “series” for free, then starting on May 8, two interviews will be released each day until May 19. Each podcast is about 30 minutes and listeners “will get a ton of information and a variety of different perspectives on the RV life,” says Melissa.
