AI Disclosure

At RV LIFE, we strive to embrace innovation and technology that affects RVers and RV travel. Recently, huge leaps have been made in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) that will impact the way information is created. How that will ultimately affect the RVing community remains to be seen, but in the meantime, RV LIFE is proceeding into this new arena with caution.

First off, we want to assure our readers that all of our content is and always has been written by RVers for RVers, and every article is monitored for accuracy by other RVers.

Because we value transparency, we want to be proactive and upfront about how we are currently utilizing AI in our content creation process for RV LIFE. Our team of RVers is experimenting with AI and using it judiciously to enhance some of our content in the following ways:

  • Identifying topics that are popular and providing ideas on what to write about.
  • Creating article outlines that function as a starting point for our writers.
  • Assisting in ideation for content, which is manually reviewed and edited.

At RV LIFE, we are committed to providing the highest quality content possible to our readers. As AI technology continues to evolve, we will update our policy and transparency accordingly so that you can be sure our technology decisions are always made with our readers in mind. 

Regardless of technological advancements in the future, we will always strive to keep our policies transparent and our content relevant and accurate.

We appreciate your trust in RV LIFE as your go-to source for RV-related content, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with valuable information and insights.
