-RVTF Instructors

Hi, we're Kerensa Durr and Brandon Hatcher.

We gave up our lives in the NYC area as designers, corporate trainers, and a university instructor to escape the rat race and live our life of freedom on the road. We are now in our 5th year of full-time life and on our second RV (you'll learn why in the course) and we love it. We have spent the last four years learning all we can about RVing and the RV industry while making connections in the industry and with fellow RVers.

You can find us every day over at our free Facebook Group, RV to Freedom - Learning to Live in an RV, helping people learn how they can take their lives on the road and encouraging other full-time RVers to share their experience with people who are dreaming about hitting the road.

I loved the way the course presented very useful information in a friendly fashion, putting terminology into a vernacular that I could understand as a new RVer!
Shelley Dennis Student
We are both introverts, the community that was created for the students brought us out of our shell. We "met" so many kindred souls through the course and now we are looking forward to actually meeting these wonderful people in real life.
Jeanette and Jim Gainer Students
The knowledge we gained encouraged us to move forward with our dream by settling our fears of the unknown and leading us in all the right directions. Without this course those fears might have stopped us from following our dream.
