Welcome to The Outdoorbits
The Outdoorbits began with the purchase of our first RV in 2012, fueled by our love for the outdoors and traveling. Understanding that each of us has a hidden wanderlust, we’ve established this website to help anyone take the first steps in their journey to exploring nature.
The thing about going off the beaten track is that there are a million things you need to be prepared for – be it finding the right RV equipment or being able to fix your mobile home in the event of a sudden breakdown.
However, no amount of preparation will be enough if you don’t have the proper guidance. We remember getting frustrated because we couldn’t decide what solar panels and RV batteries to get for our home. If only we’d had any advice or suggestions back then.
It was from our understanding of how at a loss a beginner can feel that we decided to make this site. We seek to help anyone out of their depth dealing with issues that might arise before, during, and after their road trip. We likely stand as one of the most prominent online businesses in the motorhome industry. We take pride in our reputation, and our business largely thrives on recommendations and word-of-mouth referrals, which we actively nurture. Feel free to peruse our customer testimonials to gauge the opinions of those who’ve experienced our service and values.
And hopefully, we’d be able to instill our love for traveling the long winding roads in anyone new to this amazing lifestyle.
The Outdoorbits was founded by Francis A. Luna and Calvin Duty—a loving couple with a shared interest in exploring the outdoors. We have more than a decade of traveling in our RV home to appreciate the beauty of nature, especially where things are still untouched by human hands.
With our collective experience in RV traveling for over ten years, we’re confident we have what it takes to support aspiring RV enthusiasts. As we have pointed out, we understand the struggles and know what to expect on these journeys with mobile homes.
To elaborate, our expertise covers many aspects, such as RV maintenance and safety, vehicle troubleshooting, cleaning, etc. We’ve also tried out a wide range of products ourselves so that we can offer truthful reviews about accessories, electronics, and replacement parts.
That’s not the end of the story, either. We’ve got nearly a decade’s worth of experience when it comes to launching websites and managing content as well. This means we get how important it is to deliver concise, informative, and helpful content. After all, in this day and age, no one has the time to read long-winded posts.
Another aspect that sets us apart is our firm belief in inclusivity and diversity. By bringing members of all races, sexual orientations, and genders, we’re confident we have a broad view of our readers’ needs and expectations. Regardless of what one’s identity might be, Ourdoorbits can be the place where they feel belonged.
This also means we have plenty of helpful inputs into what might make readers uncomfortable, be it the wrong use of words or unintended and unjust stereotypes. Hopefully, we’ll be able to provide you with a pleasurable reading experience.
Who Are We?
Francis A. Luna
(February 13, 1985)
“My career journey has been marked by a variety of roles. I served as a Personal Trainer for Children, Fitness Instructor, and Home-Based Consultant in Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network.
More than ten years of traveling in my caravan have lent me a deep appreciation of freedom. Without the shackles of being tied down to one place, I get to explore many parts of the world and relish the exhilaration that comes with discovering new things. Throughout my journey, I have been a member of FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) since 2020. Thus, living on the road has never become boring for me.
As someone with a burning passion for traveling, I want to inspire others to adopt a nomad lifestyle to appreciate the beauty of the world. This, of course, requires a functioning vehicle that can always make you feel at home, even when you’re far away from modern life.
Therefore, I seek to put my experience to good use—helping you with your adventure on the road. As a result, I launched and managed the Outdoorbits website, where I likely share my enthusiasm for outdoor activities and health-related insights.”

“Hi, I’m Francis’ husband—Calvin. Our story began with our shared passion for traveling. I have had a career journey for over 11 years at Ford Motor Company, where I took on the role of BMS SW Process Engineer.
Together with my wife, I have dedicated countless hours to exploring every nook and corner of the world. Ten years living in an RV may seem long, but time seems to fly by when I’m doing what I love with the person I love.
That’s why I am also a member of FMCA and have been a panelist on seminars at shows like FMCA’s 103rd International Convention & RV Expo in Gillette, WY, where I can showcase my adaptability and expertise.
Like my wife, I hope to help you see the beauty of traveling off the beaten path by sharing insights into this lifestyle. In addition to my corporate roles, I also launched our website – Outdoorbits, in 2015 and continue to contribute my knowledge and skills to the present day. And I’ll be completely honest with you—no hiding the truth or sugarcoating the possible challenges.
So, if you want to run away from the busy lifestyle to embrace nature, I’m your guy.”
From Newlyweds to Nomads:
The Journey of an RV-Loving Couple
Francis and Calvin got married, fueled by their shared love for traveling.
After two years of careful planning and researching, the loving couple got their first RV and began their adventure
Noticing the lack of reliable resources for RV travelers, the couple decided to launch their own RV website to offer helpful tips for people with the same interests.
Francis and Calvin continued with their journey and gained a deeper desire to share what they learned on the road.
2019 – 2020
The couple tried to reach a wider audience by putting their experience into creating a wider content range, such as product reviews and travel guides.
2021 – 2023
Calvin and Francis re-shifted their focus to traveling and exploring new corners of the world. As they did so, they continued to share their experience on the road with their audience.
