On this week’s episode of the RV Family Travel Atlas podcast, we are talking to the wonderful duo from The Fit RV: James and Stef Adinaro. The healthiest RV couple in the world recently took a break from filming their fun and educational YouTube videos and headed to Germany on an epic European campervan adventure!
In this episode we talk about planning for a European RV vacation and the travel highlights from their trip. Plus, we get to hear all about their visit to the Truma Headquarters and what it’s like to camp across the pond.
Segment One: All the Travel Details
In the first segment, Stef and James tell us how they planned out their stops and picked their campgrounds. Spoiler alert: reservations seem to be the only way to go, especially when traveling during peak holiday months.
We were honestly surprised to here the descriptions of campgrounds and how they compared to their American counterparts. Listen to hear all about…
- Stop #1: Innsbruck, Austria and the Natterer See Campground
- Stop #2: Vitznau, Switzerland and Camping Vitznau
- Stop #3: Lindau, Germany and Campingpark Gitzenweiler hof
- Stop #4: Fussen, Germany and Camping Hopfensee
Google Maps helped them in locating campgrounds and finding reviews. They also used the ACSI app, a directory for European campgrounds.
Segment Two: RVs and RV Culture in Europe
The Fit RV really enjoyed their tour of the Truma Headquarters in Germany. They were particularly blown away by the cleanliness and the technology that seamed lightyears ahead of American RV factories.
Plus, they visited the Dusseldorf RV Show during their visit…
We also chat about the similarities and differences in campground culture and the rigs themselves. We learned a lot in this segment, and found out many of our preconceived notions about campervanning in Europe were not exactly on the mark.
In fact, after this interview we both felt like an RV trip in Europe would be more accessible and easy to pull off than we had previously imagined!
Make sure you check out all The Fit RV’s YouTube videos from their epic European adventure, and visit The Fit RV blog for more details!
A big thanks to our sponsors for supporting weekly content for all our RV and Campervanning fools:-)
See you at the campground,
