About Us

The Idea

Call of the Open Road began its life as a way to document my adventures and learnings while helping others who wanted to get into RV’ing avoid all the beginner mistakes I made.

Since it’s humble beginnings, the site has grown as my knowledge (often through mistakes) has expanded.

Our Mission

To help you maintain and upgrade your RV and just generally improve your road-tripping adventures in your rig!

Our Process

Every single article on this site has either been written or edited by myself to ensure the highest quality standards. We do sometimes post content written by outside authors but rest assured that nothing is published without the “a-ok” from me, the head editor. This is done to ensure that any information we publish is accurate and safe, so you can trust it.

Our reviews rely on a mixture of hands-on real-life experience with the product and extensive online feedback from verified customers of these items. Our product reviews try and focus on which particular situations or users is each item best suited for. As such we find this combined approach the best method as what may work well for my needs, may not necessarily work for yours.

As the outdoors has always been a big part of my life, I am often found in our local RV & Outdoors stores (to the point where I am on first name terms with some of the staff) getting to know all the new products that hit the market.

Our Team

Writer & Editor

Always an avid hiker and camper when he was younger, he loves the outdoors. He quit the corporate world after 15 years to do more of what really matters – spending time with his family & to spend more time surrounded by nature. He’s most likely right now, either RV tinkering, hiking or playing with his son.
