Full-Time Freedom Week Virtual RV Event Is Back
Full-Time Freedom Week (FTFW), the largest virtual RV event since 2017, is back again this year with new speakers, including industry experts and influencers, ready to talk about all things hitting the road in an RV. But just because it’s called Full-Time Freedom Week doesn’t mean you have to live or want to live full-time to attend. Instead, vacationers, weekend warriors, and full-timers can benefit from these educational and inspirational presentations.
What to expect at Full-Time Freedom Week
Attend Full-Time Freedom Week from the convenience of your laptop or other smart devices Sept. 20 – 24. The virtual RV event will offer a combination of live, interactive, and pre-recorded presentations. Every day will include prizes and giveaways, over $2,000 in giveaways, to be exact. And best of all, it’s free to attend!
“The best part of Full-Time Freedom Week is that it’s free!” said Lindsay McKenzie, one of the four founding members. “You sign up to attend and can binge watch each day if you want. It’s like watching your RV dreams unfold right in front of you. And if you want to own the collection, you have the option to upgrade to one of our affordable packages — a 30-day watch pass for just $27 or lifetime access for $97.”
FTFW Presenters and Topics
According to an email from co-founder Liz Wilcox, “We define full-time freedom as living your way, on your terms…whatever that looks like for you. That means we’ll have…a wide range of topics for anyone looking to pursue any type of RV life.”
Wilcox goes on to mention examples of topics, including:
- National Parks Travel with RV Miles
- RVing with School-Aged Kids with The Wanderpreneurs
- Adjusting to Tiny Living with Wayward Home
- Military Travel with Chickery’s Travels
- DIY RV Fixes & Maintenance with The Virtual Campground
“Plus boondocking, battery power, van builds, remote work, and more!!!”
Reminiscing about past FTFW events, co-founder Julie Chickery mentioned, “…all of the speakers are so thoughtful about the topics they share — everything from buying an RV, going off grid, working from your RV, traveling with kids, how to save money, and more—the event covers every aspect of the RV lifestyle for anyone at any age.”
The origins of Full-Time Freedom Week
Full-Time Freedom Week was created by RVers for RVers. Its founders, Liz Wilcox, Camille Attell, Julie Chickery, and Lindsay McKenzie, have collaborated on the project since its inception.
“Full-Time Freedom Week was a fun little idea I had back in 2017 that I shared with my RV friends,” said Wilcox. “Little did I know that I’d partner with three other ladies who loved to RV, and we’d start a virtual movement that would help thousands of people to turn their RV dreams into reality.”
All four ladies are not only full-time RVers. They each bring experience in the educational field to the table. Their combined talents have helped immensely in the development of such a successful endeavor. This year marks the virtual RV event’s fifth anniversary.
“Our secret sauce,” says Attell, “Is that the four partners all come from the education industry. Liz and Lindsay McKenzie came from traditional education and teaching, and Julie Chickery and I came from corporate training. We understand what it takes to create a high-quality, best-in-class customer experience in online learning.”
