Listen to this story

HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. — The 2019 Workamper Rendezvous will feature presentations by Ashley Mann, a downsizing and organizing expert, who will show attendees how to better utilize their RV living space.

Mann runs the website, a resource for finding ideas for organizing, decorating, and renovating RVs, as well as tips for full-time RV living.

She has also written an ebook called Create Space from Thin Air: Ideas for Adding Storage to Your RV.

Drawing from her own experience with selling her home and moving with her husband into a fifth wheel full-time, she has developed an online course called Inspired to Downsize to guide people through the process of downsizing and decluttering, whether for full-time RV travel or simply to enjoy life without being weighed down by excess “stuff.”

She is in the process of launching a second blog on the topic at

Mann will present three seminars at the Workamper Rendezvous, scheduled for    Her sessions include:

  • Fitting the stuff you need into your home on wheels — In this seminar people will learn clever storage tips and mods to help utilize all the space in an RV and create a home in a tidy and relaxing environment. Mann will offer tips for downsizing and decluttering to reduce the number of things people really need. This seminar will be like Pinterest come to life, the release noted.
  • Blogging and vlogging for business — Mann will join Julie Chickery, from Chickery’s Travels, to cover the basics of blogging and vlogging. They will discuss the difference between hobby and business efforts, and the basic steps needed to get started. Attendees will walk away with a game plan to get their blogs and YouTube channels started off the right way, the release explained.
  • Practical guidance for decluttering and downsizing — This bonus day session will present solutions for some of the common mental obstacles to downsizing as well as practical advice for planning and tackling a major downsizing project, whether to live full-time in RV or simply to enjoy the next years of life without being weighed down by things no longer used or loved.

The bonus session, which requires pre-registration and a fee of $20, will include time for personal reflection and goal setting. It is especially targeted for people who are committed to the goal of living a simpler lifestyle, but just need some guidance for getting started and making that dream a reality. One free copy per person of the workbook from the online course Inspired to Downsize is included for each attendee.
