About RVBlogger

RVBlogger is a website and YouTube Channel that teaches people all about RVs and the RV Lifestyle.


Susan and Mike Scarpignato launched RVBlogger in December of 2018 so we have been RVing for quite a while! In fact, we currently own two motorhomes! We bought our 2008 Class C RV in 2017 and then we purchased our 2021 Class A Thor Challenger in December of 2021.

Susan also owned a popup camper and a travel trailer, so between the two of us, we have owned 4 different types of RVs over the past 25 years!

In September of 2019, we launched the RVBlogger YouTube Channel. On the YouTube channel, we have mainly been conducting tours and reviews of RVs. And we also create videos full of tips and advice for making RVing easy and fun.

We take great pride in demonstrating to our audience what we do when we RV. And we share this info with our audience through well-researched blog posts and through our YouTube videos, where we try to combine information and entertainment.

We also provide honest reviews of products and services that we actually use. We will only recommend a product or service if we use it ourselves. We are asked to endorse products all the time and we turn down most offers. If we don’t use it, and like the product, we just can’t recommend it.

As we have grown over the years, we have added some outstanding writers to our team who are also very experienced RVers and outdoor enthusiasts. But rest assured, even though we have a team of experienced writers, Mike reads and reviews every single article on our website before we publish each article to ensure that we are producing the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.

We attend RV Shows like the Hershey RV Show and the Tampa RV Show each year to learn about the most recent RV models and associated gear and accessories. We also visit local dealerships across the country to tour and walk through all of the RVs we review for our YouTube Videos and blog articles. We have become true experts when it comes to evaluating all types of drivable and towable RVs.

RVBlogger.com is listed on Feedspot’s list of Top 100 RV Blogs, and the RVBlogger YouTube Channel is listed on Feedspot’s list of Top 100 RV YouTube Channels.

Meet the Team!
