Did you ever consider the peaceful yet adventurous lifestyle you could lead by living in an RV? It is such a tempting thought, yet for some, it may seem daunting. The very idea of having no real roots can be overwhelming – but it does not have to be like that any longer. Look at all of the people leading this lifestyle right now. They are succeeding – and you can too, by following some advice designed to make an RV a home and life on the road a stress free adventure.
This is a big undertaking, though, so it pays to consider both the pros and the cons. You might come to the realization that while extended RV trips are nice, you would rather remain in your own home. Remember, houses do have some advantages over campers and RVs. But you always have to remember that you will always be able to go back to your house. It will always be there for you.
You see, there are some definite advantages to living in a camper as well. Mowing a yard is not necessary, unless you spend an extended period at an RV resort. Even then, it is optional rather than necessary. Serious upkeep is a matter of preference, but a lot of the chores associated with a traditional home are not necessary with your RV. You do not even need to deal with troublesome neighbors any longer. Just move on to the next site.
The opinions of other people who have lived in campers and RVs can be helpful as well. This may be opinion, but many people who have tried living in a camper all of the time have had very positive experiences. Remember, on the road, you make all your own deadlines or enormous responsibilities. It is not hard to believe that you will feel healthier, both mentally and physically. Plus, RVs are no longer cramped, simple affairs. You can get all the comforts of home in many of them.
You do not have to worry about being unavailable. You no longer have to be cut off from the people you love. You can get it in contact with them literally everywhere, and in a number of different ways. You do not have to wait for payphones and things like that. Wireless internet is a life saver there, as are cell phones.
Still, some of the practicalities of life still need to be addressed, especially if you still have property or do not fully own your recreational vehicle yet. Meaning, there are bills to pay, there is banking to do, you may have to visit the doctor. The internet and increasingly advancing cell phone technologies make all of that easier than it has ever been.
But what about having a job? Few of us are able to manage a long running RV trip without bringing in some kind of income. Fortunately, yet again, just having a computer can help you. There are plenty of telecommunicating, work at home jobs to be found online. As well, you can literally get work on the road. Often, when you are staying at one resort or site for a while, you can get a job there. The hours can be full time or part time, and you may live there rent free.
Clearly, living in an RV is not what it used to be. Weigh the advantages and disadvantages. It can be a lot of fun, but it has to feel like the right lifestyle to you.
