Retiring to an RV

For us working stiffs, RVing is largely a vacation thing. If you’re lucky enough to work on the Internet, you can go ahead and take off and go where you like when you like, but that’s simply not a realistic option for a lot of us. The dream of RVing full time isn’t so far-fetched on any retirement plan so long as you have an idea of how you’re going to make it work, and you’re willing to make the compromises that you need to make in order to stay on the road.

Keeping the House?

One of the big decisions that homeowners will have to make regarding retirement is whether or not to keep their home. The decision of whether or not you’re comfortable relying on an RV as your one and only home is a big one, but, there are other assets that we need to reconsider, as well. We need to expand this question to cover that car that you love, the boat you take out every summer, that acre of land that you own in Arizona. Selling off your assets might allow you to live like a King on the road, but it’s a total severance from the lifestyle that you lived while working, and not everyone is up for that. Weigh your options carefully and spend some time on the road before you decide to unload every major asset you hold.

Adjusting to the Road Life

Being on the road all of the time can wear you down if you’re not ready for it. Before you decide whether or not you want to become a full time RVer in your golden years, take whatever vacation time you have and spend as much of it on the road as possible.

Repairing Your Ride

If you’re going to sell your home and live in your RV full time, then you can’t afford to rely on others to maintain your vehicle for you. Not only can repairs get expensive, but you don’t want to wait overnight in the middle of nowhere for a mechanic to come meet you. Take the time to learn how to take care of your RV on your own

Full time RVing isn’t for everyone, but if you feel that you are a true nomad at heart, then you may be ready to turn your hobby into your lifestyle.
