The RV Owners Lifestyle Seminar is comprised of 3 days of workshops on a multitude of topics combined with a 3-day "dry camp" so you can put some of your learning into practice immediately. The Seminar is a combined effort of the Recreation Vehicle Department of the Trades and Apprenticeship office of Okanagan College and the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of BC.


Topics covered run the gamut from maintenance (appliances, diesel, holding tanks, generator) through tips on electrical, choosing a mobile satellite system, choosing tires, and dry-camping or boondocking, to geocoaching, full-timing and holiday destinations – including having fun on working holidays, and travel writing. The website is updated regularly with new info and any changes that may be of interest to seminar participants, so check back often.
