Learning things the hard way can take the fun out of RVing really fast.

Imagine purchasing your dream RV and a month into your journey realizing:

That you have an existing leak that costs thousands of dollars to fix.

You hook up your RV systems incorrectly causing permanent damage to your RV.

That RV you wanted isn’t the RV you needed, and you lose money trading it for a new one. This could easily be a $10,000 + mistake.

RVers Online University will make sure you are ready for the challenges of RV life whether you are a weekend camper, a full-time RVer or anywhere in between.

Education Director

Jim Koca

I'm a retired police officer and police academy director with over 40 years of service and currently a reserve deputy for Reagan County Texas.  I specialized in collision reconstruction, investigating the causes and consequences of vehicle collisions. This has given me a unique perspective on vehicle safety, enabling me to train officers across the country. I share this information with RVers through numerous columns and programs, including RVers’ Boot Camp and RVers Online University.

RVOU Instructors

Kerensa and Brandon RVOU

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've been living full-time in an RV since 2014 and are currently on our second RV (you'll learn why in the course) and we love it. We have spent our time on the road learning all we can about RVing and the RV industry while making connections with fellow RVers.


  • Is there a discount for Escapees RV Club members?

    Yes. Members receive a $20 discount on individual courses and a $50 discount when you buy both courses together. You can grab your member discount code from the Escapees RV Club Member Dashboard and enter it at checkout to receive your discount.

  • How long will I have access to the course?

    You’ll have lifetime access to all the materials for as long as they live on the web. When we make improvements to the course or update the material, you’ll also receive that information. You’ll have plenty of time to make sure you fully understand all the information in the course.

  • Will I get access to RVOU Instructors?

    Absolutely! We aren't going to just give you some information and send you out to figure it out on your own. You can contact your instructors by email and they will get back to you within 48 hours. If we have a topic that generates a lot of questions, we'll make sure to update the course material to clarify.

  • Do I need to do the lessons in order?

    No - We've set up this course so that you can do the lessons in any order you want.

  • What is your refund policy?

    We want RVers Online University to provide you with the value you paid for and more! Because our courses are digital and available immediately, refunds are considered on a case by case basis within 30 days of purchase. If you aren't happy with our courses, we'll try to fix the problem, or provide you with a refund.
