eBikes for RVers: Should You Get One?

•, By Mike Wendland

Jennifer and I got our first eBikes back in 2018. And boy, do we love them! 

We started with some great Rad Power Bikes and have recently upgraded to a new foldable eBike from Lectric that fits into our RV Lifestyle a little better and is soon to be on a rack on our motorhome and our 5th wheel!

I'm going to tell you about those bikes and more! Including discussing whether or not an ebike is right for you.

Rad Power Bikes was a long-time sponsor of our podcast, and we are now happy affiliates for Lectric Bikes. We always share our honest opinions and experiences to help you determine if an ebike is right for you. I'm going to tell you about some other ebike options, too.

After a lot of consideration, Jennifer and I finally got ebikes back in 2018. Other campers had been raving about them, but we were hesitant at first. We were worried the "electric" aspect would intrude on our active lifestyle and our constant desire to connect with nature.

When we finally got our ebikes, we became ravers ourselves. It turns out ebikes help us be even more active, and we get to see even more of nature than we're able to on a standard bike.

I got the Rad Power commuter bike and liked it so much that I bought a step-through version of the same model for Jennifer. You can read more about them and our experience in another blog post. 

We used and loved the Rad Power bikes for years (still do!) but have recently added new foldable Lectric ebikes that have fat tires and are more suited to our trail riding preference over non-paved surfaces.
