Marc and Trish Leach

Co-Founders/Partner

Marc & Tricia are the creators of Keep Your Daydream—known as “KYD” by their community— a popular YouTube channel reaching over 2 million viewers monthly. They have RV'ed nearly 200,00 miles, across 47 states, in 4 countries, with 5 different RVs.

Today, they are considered RV experts … But they didn't start out that way.

A lack of RV education hit them hard just 30 minutes into their first voyage, with many flat tires and other obstacles. That's when they realized the RV community had all the answers they needed. Their mentors were thousands of experienced RVers who wrote in each week from a combination of community wisdom and their own experience.

“The RV community is supportive and helpful. We share a common interest, since RVing is serious business and must be done correctly. If something is not 100%, they will tell us! Through this process the best techniques were developed."

Marc and Trish knew they only had 18 summers traveling with their kids, and they were already down to the last two with their daughter. Once she was on board with the whole “RV thing,” they picked a date six months out and started planning the trip that is now Season 1 of KYD.

Marc & Tricia’s dream has evolved over the years, from planning their own epic adventure and connecting with their family to helping others make their dreams happen, too.

“The community has enriched our lives and taught us so much, it only makes sense to return the favor and share everything we’ve learned. This is why we’re so excited about co-creating and hosting E3 Camping and helping the community get out there!”
