I had mentioned earlier that we were trying to wrap our heads around some of the new terminology we’re seeing in the RV communities. Dave and I are learning what we can, but lately we’ve been seeing new terms at every turn in the forums and community groups we’ve joined.
Rather than try to provide you a glossary of our own, I will link you to some of the glossaries we’ve relied upon in our searches for definitions. After all, so many RV websites have glossary pages, and I think among them all, one can always find the definitions one is seeking.
- NeverIdle Canada has a good start. Nice short definitions and at the end there’s a link to some terms that are used in French-speaking areas, such as Quebec.
- The RV Hive’s Glossary of “Slang”
- The RVer’s Glossary by Harvest Hosts
- Camping World’s Glossary is pretty comprehensive, but not the best to search with — you first have to click on the first letter of the word you’re seeking
- A blog called Tales From the Scenic Route, about the travels of a British family who toured the U.S. in an Airstream, has a fun post about the differences in camping terminology between the two countries.
I could go on and on. There are a ton of RV terminology glossaries out there. There are Pinterest pages filled with resources. I don’t need to reinvent the wheel here. If you need to learn terms, feel free to check out others’ links.
What’s your favorite glossary of terms? We’re always looking for more resources!
