Here is all the information for advertising on our website and Podcast. The first is our Media Kit for the Podcast and the second is a Price Sheet and other information for placing ads on our website.
Kathy and I are full-time RVers. Our show was started in 2009 as a live on-air radio show and converted to a podcast later that year, the weekly 1 hour Living the RV Dream podcast explores every aspect of the RV Lifestyle.
We discuss places to camp as well as campgrounds and their amenities; RV specific products that Rv’ers want; all the different types of RV’s ; and interviews with both RV’ers and RV industry personnel. Our interviews are done in a comfortable setting and we encourage our guests to tell their stories as a conversation among friends.
Using professional grade recording equipment, our “sound” has been described as “perfect” by our listeners. Our show is available for both download and subscription on major podcast feeds including iTunes and Stitcher Radio as well as a player on our own website www.livingthervdream.com.
Our podcast is supplemented by a blog with posts as we find interesting subjects, an extensive website of over 100 pages that is the “Go-to” place for all kinds or Rving information, the Living the RV Dream Facebook group with 20,000 members, and our 2 books, “So, you want to be an Rver?”, and “So, you want to be a Workamper?”
The website was totally rebuilt in mid 2014 and includes the podcast and blog. The statistics reflect a new but rapidly growing site. The podcast stats are also as new as the website but reflect an average of over 14,000 downloads a month.
We changed hosts in mid-August and prior stats were lost, but the numbers have been steadily increasing over the last 18 months. Stats provided by www.blubrry.com

Technical Formatting of Ads/Logos/Banners:
• We accept JPG, PNG and GIF files up to 300 kilobits in size
• Ads can be animated using GIF files. For newsletter banners, ensure the first slide is the “message” even if it appears for a flash. Outlook does not allow animation, but building the ad this way still gets the message across.
• Ads are due the Friday before they are schedule to run, but can be changed anytime.
• We discourage use of Flash banners because they do not work on Apple devices.
• Website ads can be set to rotate over a specific time (every 10 seconds) or to display a different banner every time the page is accessed.
• We do accept text ads for the website. The maximum number of words allowed is 250.
• You may link your banner or text ad to your website’s home page or any other page on your website.
