There’s nothing quite like the freedom you get from traveling full time in your RV – the sites, the people, the food, the life! But as much as we want it to be otherwise, the truth of the matter is, traveling costs money. While many full time RVers are happily retired, there is still a large population of would be travelers who are not quite ready for retirement, yet still long for the freedom of the open road. So what do you do if you want to RV full time but you don’t have the benefit of a retirement income?
When it comes to maintaining your own RV, there are a lot of things to learn and remember. It’s not so uncommon to make mistakes especially when you are first starting out, but if you’re smart and do your research, you’ll save yourself some headaches by learning from other people’s mistakes instead of making them yourself. Listed below are five of the most common mistakes RVers make and more importantly, how to avoid them.
Before hitting the road full time in our RV, we did some research to learn more about the lifestyle and to get some ideas on what to expect from it. But all the preparation in the world won’t make up for real life experience. Now that we’ve been at it for a while, we’ve learned quite a bit more and we’d like to share some of these lessons with you.
At one time or another, your RV is going to need a little love and maintenance from you and you can’t do that without some essential tools in your kit. Here are some tools you really need to have before you hit the road.
If you want to RV full time (or even just part time) then you’ve got to know all the details of what it means to live on the road in your RV. Before we started our full time RV lifestyle, we did our research and found some really useful websites.
If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be living full time in a little Class B RV with my husband and two cats, I would have told you that you were nuts. But that’s exactly what I’m doing now and it was absolutely 100% by choice.
We love camping in our little Roadtrek RV but with such limited space, it can be a real challenge at times. So we are constantly on the lookout for ways to camp better by repurposing items, saving on space or generally just making our lives easier. These handy hacks are great for anyone living in a small space!
What is better than camping in your RV? How about free camping? Boondocking (also called dry camping and wild camping) is a term used to describe camping in your not so typical campsite. It’s about having no hookups and being “off grid”, but there are some things you should know before you go.
In any given situation there really are only two responses available to you. No matter how you want to label the feelings, you always have the choice to focus on what makes you feel worse or on what makes you feel better. If you care enough about how you feel, and you have the desire to feel good, then the choice is simple.
