Steps to wander: Steps to having your parents pay for a hous

Re: Steps to wander: Steps to having your parents pay for a

An RV costs about .40 a mile to drive. It’s not going to save them much money by the time they pay for fuel, maintenance, etc.

They can park in rest areas and truck stops for free but truck drivers REALLY dislike rvs taking these free spots because they are on time restrictions and there’s not always a lot of parking available to them.

I really want to know what is causing them to be in such a rush to move. I wonder if they can’t afford it OR are being evicted.

The rush all the sudden though is curious. They were all into a home so much they looked and got approved for a loan. Corbin probably threw such a tantrum about moving back to Idaho they found this opportunity

I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case. Corbin is probably trying to delay moving back to Idaho as long as possible.

I'm guessing the rush is because the RV company they are working with wants vlogs during the summer to promote others to rent their RVs for summer trips. Corbin and Kelsey's audience isn't retirees who can RV year-round, so to get those families out RVing they have to promote them in the summer when school is out.

Oops, my post above should say “backburner” not back order. Typing on my phone.

I believe they moved into the house in September, so if they plan to be out by the end of July that means that they would have only lived in the CA house for 10 months. My parents used to have properties that they rented out, and if you’re a small landlord often times it’s not worth the legal expense to enforce a lease when the renters want out early. Usually you just keep the security deposit. Now, that was probably at least a months’ rent or more for a house. So I think they’re probably losing that deposit in order to break the lease early. I hope Missy didn’t give them the security deposit thinking she would get that money back at the end of the lease.

Short of bringing along a full-time nanny, I don’t see how they’re going to get scuba certified and dive on this road trip while they have a one-year-old in their care. They if they being pregnant on the road was bad, they are in for yet another rude awakening when they experience an active, curious one year old in an RV. Not to mention all of the out of network ER and urgent care visits they're going to pay for every time she gets a fever or has an infection. Today’s footage was ridiculous- murky water and the camera flailing about because Kelsey and Corbin didn’t have any scuba equipment left. I agree with the previous poster who said they decided to start a family way too early based on their maturity level. Unfortunately, those are always the people who lack the self-awareness to realize they're not ready for that commitment and that lifestyle change.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, I think it will be readily apparent whether it’s sponsored or not once we see their first video. If you’re serious about buying a first house, you typically do not have a bunch of disposable income lying around to spend on an expensive RV rental or purchase. You’re saving for a down payment, closing costs, renovations and improvements you want to make, etc.

Someone left this comment and they "liked" it: " Wait? So are you looking for a house or planning to travel in an RV? Cuz that's a big purchase to do before a house purchase. Unless you plan to just keep RV (make payments) and buy a house with RV parking (or storage) then you can be settled and still have your RV to travel. The best of both worlds." They could just be liking the sentiment and it's a fantasy of theirs,or I wonder if they're planning on taking that "down payment money" that was going to go towards a house and taking out a loan on a used RV instead. That would be a significantly smaller down payment compared to a $200,000 home, but probably not a great investment considering that automobiles continue to depreciate in value, unlike real estate.

I’m still surprised by the seemingly lack of plan these two have. Apparently they have no idea how long their going to be in an rv. They have a whole house of furniture and outdoor stuff that I wonder where they plan to put it. They said they are only planning on buying a 2-3 bedroom house (whenever that is) so maybe downsize.
Looking back at their vlog titles for the last several months you can really see how dis journey are. Just strange

At this rate they're going to end up living in his parents basement and he is going to STILL refuse to get a real job. They keep saying they have a 4 bedroom house worth of stuff, but not really. They barely have any rooms filled. They're going to downsize? They literally bought all of that stuff new when they moved in. They're so stupid.

So they ARE moving all their stuff to Idaho before the RV trip. I guess storing it all at a parent's house??? I really think the RV thing is for a month or two and then they are back in Idaho for good before Thanksgiving—or even earlier.

I really wonder what their parents must think about these two. They have a child, but they have NO real plans for the future. They aren't the Bucket List Family, who are millionaires. Their channel is tanking. They don't seem to have a lot of $$$. They need to really figure things out. They certainly DON'T need another baby any time soon!!!

Today they actually say that they have no real plan. They do know that they’ll be in Idaho for the holidays. Kelsey said that her first choice is to go to Portland. They both said that this is NOT a road trip. Not sure what it is. They’re going to try and save money to buy their dream home while on this trip.

She said she’s most worried about naps for June. They haven’t figured out where she’s going to sleep. So many undecided things it seems like.

I’m really wondering if this is a sponsorship with an RV company since they are so up in the air about it. I’m wondering if they’re planning on parking it someplace and “living” thinking it would be cheaper than an apartment.

I really don’t think it’s going to last. They have no idea. Corbin “June can just run around outside when she needs to”. What happens when it rains and you can’t unhook everything g and don’t want to ride your bike? We know how lazy they can be.

Most interesting that kelsey and missy were together. BUT Missy’s new bff, was also there. Wonder how uncomfortable that whole thing really was.

Jeeeeeez! Corbin was hella defensive in that video. "We are THE WANDER FAMILY!!!" Um, just because you call yourself that doesn't mean...anything.

It's weird they didn't properly think things through about the RV trip. Like where June would sleep or where her carseat would go. Those should be the FIRST things to think about.

Also, they are dumping all their crap at their parents' house? AGAIN? They are such jerks. Interesting that they finally admit they are going to be living with family after the RV trip.

Where did you see them together? I thought maybe Kelsey and Missy got their hair done together, but I haven't seen them in a vlog together for months!

This whole shark thing was so stupid. Last summer a lot of the beaches around where they were, were closed due to great whites in the area. I’m sure the shark he was talking about was a sand shark but still nothing to joke about. I can’t believe they drove 70+ miles to go to the beach. And they bought a new snorkel gear. So much for saving money for their move.

Yeah, and so much for feeling stressed out about packing and moving. Isn't this the second beach trip to Laguna just this week?? I live about 10 minutes from the beach and don't even go twice a week!

Leave it to Corbin to think someone in his family would be willing to drive a U-haul from Idaho to California, just so they can save some money.

The sense of entitlement is out of control with this douchebag.

THIS!!!!! He's such an ASSHOLE! I think he really would expect someone to take a week off work, etc., just to help them move. It also interesting they want to fly someone down to drive with Kelsey. I get that driving alone with June might be a bit harder, but it really makes her sound like she can't drive by herself.

Kelsey is really confusing. She tries to sell herself as an independent woman, but she's TOTALLY not. She relies on Corbin for everything. I think she sees herself as a modern mom/woman, but I see her more like a bored 1950s housewife. Even before June, she really didn't seem to do much other than hangout with Corbin. What happened to all the art plans? I think she did one project with sticks...and that was it—for like three-plus years. Do they even do art projects with June?

I couldn’t believe that first he thought someone would fly down to drive back with Kelsey now he’s saying that someone would go to AZ p/u the truck drive to California, help load the thing then dive to Idaho. I’m not so sure that getting truck in AZ is such a good idea anyway. The time alone 6+ hrs seems like a huge waste of time. They would drive over together then she and June would drive back.

They’re really so disorganized I’m amazed. To just assume that the family is going to store all that stuff for who knows how long is so pretentious
On their part. I really wonder what these families think.

Did they say that? From what I understood they are storing stuff in a parent's garage. Kelsey also said they are leaving the car at her mom's house.

They are planning to live with "family" (guessing Corbin's parents) after the RV trip, so I'm guessing they might use their stuff in some sort of "apartment" set up at their house.

Storage units aren't terribly expensive, but they have to remember to pay the bills even while on the road. I'm not so sure they are really all that responsible about bills and such.

These two make me want to scream. My niece is only a couple of years older than them, is married with three children with a fourth on the way. She and her husband are so much more mature and have their life together than these two it's amazing. The only one I feel sorry for is June. She's a beautiful little girl and her life is so unstable, because her parents still think they're teenagers and haven't decided yet what they want to be when they grow up.
