Are you an RV owner or looking to become one? Do you travel with your RV on vacations only? Or do you drive one full time? I am hoping to become a full time RVer and have been diligently doing my research on what to expect, and how to handle different scenarios. One of the things I researched was rules of the road. There isn’t a whole lot of information, but, this post is my takeaway on groups I’m involved with and other reading that I’ve done.
I will admit that I am still researching the pro’s and con’s of going the full time RV route. I truly want to do it for a few years at least. Travel the country and see everything that I can.
When people hear that someone is a full time RVer, there is one main question that immediately pops into their heads.
“How can you LIVE being a full time RVer? You’re not making money traveling the country in your RV are you?”
So, you think you want to become a full time RVer? Are you ready to sell most of your things and hit the road? To some people, this sounds like a dream. Others may be on the fence trying to decide what they want to do. Do your research! This has to be a lifestyle you want to live and are ready to throw in 100%. Hopefully this post will give you more insight as to whether it’s the life for you or not.
By now, you all know that I am hoping to purchase an RV and travel the country while working from the road. I previously wrote about Six of my Favorite Travel Campers. There are many people who want to live this kind of lifestyle, but, feel they can’t afford it. So, I researched that further and found that it is actually cheaper to live as an RVer than it is to live in an apt or house, paying rent or mortgage. Here’s my post on RV Budgeting That Won’t Break the Bank. What Can the RV Life Cost?
You all may remember a post I did on Six of my Favorite Campers. I went in and really researched what is out there that I could use if it were just me traveling. Now, keep in mind, I do hope to live in one while working from the road. That is my goal once my daughter graduates high school and college, then moves on with her life. Although, you know mother and daughter relationships. She tells me now, “Don’t let me stop you. Go. Have fun.” Gee. Thanks kiddo. 😛
I’ve mentioned in previous posts, that my plans once my daughter graduates is that I want to work from the road while I travel the country. Since it’ll be just me traveling, I just need a smaller camper to pull behind my car. I currently have a 2014 Kia Soul. So, weight limitation is a concern. Upon further research of the Soul’s towing capacity, even with the smaller travel campers, I am going to have to purchase a new SUV to pull my new home with. I will go into the reasoning why I am choosing to go with a travel trailer instead of a an all in one RV in another post.
