Welcome to the exciting journey of Kelley & Renee, where they embrace the full-time RV lifestyle with enthusiasm and a commitment to staying fit and active. Traveling in their Keystone Raptor 421CK fifth-wheel toy hauler, they share their experiences of retirement on the road, filled with outdoor adventures and social connections. From hiking and biking to pickleball and more, discover how they make every day a new opportunity for exploration and wellness.

We are Kelley & Renee, and we travel full-time in our Keystone Raptor 421CK fifth-wheel toy hauler. Our plans were always to retire and travel full-time in an RV. Luckily, we were able to start our full-time journey a little earlier due to a job relocation from Texas to Georgia. It is important for us to stay fit and healthy and enjoy all our outdoor activities while living our retirement on the road. Our Raptor toy hauler has a perfect floor plan, which allows us to bring all our fitness equipment and outdoor gear and toys everywhere we go. Our garage, or what we like to refer to as a “multi-purpose room,” also provides 2 additional queen-size beds when family or friends come to stay & join us.

We enjoy pickleball, hiking, biking, golf, kayaking, and paddle boarding, to name just a few. The toy hauler multi-purpose room allows us to bring everything we need. We can easily load and unload our bikes using the garage ramp. The open floor area in the garage provides plenty of room to do yoga and daily exercises. While on the road, we can keep up on our daily workouts with our trainer via Zoom classes or free yoga classes that are available on YouTube.

Every day, we try to get in at least 10,000 steps and play a few games of pickleball in the morning. We then like to fill our afternoons with biking, golf, or kayaking. If we can find a campground or RV park with a pickleball court, that’s a bonus! We use several apps to help us find local biking trails, hiking trails, and pickleball courts nearby, such as TrailLink, AllTrails, and Places-2-Play. To track our fitness, we use the MyFitnessPal app and our Garmin watches.

Eating healthy is key. We store plenty of fruits and vegetables in our residential-style refrigerator, and we have plenty of cupboards to store our protein shakes and canned goods. We follow a high-protein health plan and eat every 3 hours, 6 times a day, and drink plenty of water. We usually eat at 7:00 am, 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, & 8:00 pm. While traveling on the road and when we are out hiking or biking, we pack water, protein shakes, nuts, protein bars, and cut-up fruits and vegetables for lunch and snacks. It makes it easy and prevents us from having to stop and buy fast food or try to make a meal when on the road.

Being socially active is key to having a healthy retirement lifestyle. When on the road, we try to get to know our neighbors at every stop. It’s also great to meet up with other full-time RVers. We camp in Florida during the winter months in a 55-year-old and older RV community. The community offers a wide variety of activities every day, all day long. You can easily stay busy every day from morning to night. The activities include shuffleboard, bocce ball, pickleball, cornhole, line dancing, a variety of card games, bible studies, water volleyball, and MORE!

As Kelley always says, “We may be living tiny, but we have the world's largest suitcase.” We hope to see you out on the road. Follow along with us @fiftyandfifthwheeling on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube.
