​Full Time RV Retirement Living

Posted

Imagine one day in the ideal retirement. You wake up, pull away the curtains, and look out on a sunny, gorgeous view. The only decision you have to make all day long is which adventure to have. This is the idyllic vision many of us have for our retirement—but how many of us actually achieve the level of freedom described above? With full-time RV retirement living, the post-career life can be a choose-your-own-adventure of wonderful views and new experiences. If this is something you’re considering, here are a few important things to keep in mind.

Why Consider Full Time RV Retirement Living?

As The Balance puts it, it’s a simple equation: RV lifestyles and endless choices = no boredom.

Although for many, the “American dream” is living in a house and owning it outright, RV retirement living completely turns that on its head in a number of positive ways. Retirees can seek out better climates in the winter, visit countless destinations on their “bucket list,” and catch up with old friends halfway across the country. Doing it all via RV can be far less expensive than constant travel from a home base.

RV living means having more options. You can choose to visit California wine country or take a trip to the coast. You can visit national parks or historical sites all across the country. With the right planning, you can even change your mind halfway to a destination and go someplace else. Retirement offers plenty of free time—and with an RV in tow, it also means you’re free to nearly anywhere you please.

How To Transition To Full Time RV Living

If you already have an RV, most of the work is already done. But we also have a few tips for making full time living in an RV as comfortable as possible:

  • Keep everything you need for cleaning and maintenance handy. Your RV might be in great shape now, but there’s no guarantee of what will happen tomorrow. That’s why it’s a good idea to build a basic RV cleaning and maintenance kit. We recommend browsing through our RV cleaners and RV sealing supplies to make sure you have everything you need.
  • Start small. Consider tackling a weekend trip before selling the house and living in an RV full-time. Or you could take the RV on vacation and see how you like life on the road. Keep a notebook handy so you can jot down any notes or corrections you might need to make for the next trip.
  • Plan, plan, plan. Although some people may find that their transition into an RV is natural, make sure that you know what your goals are before you make any sudden decisions. This can help you make the most out of your RV purchase—as well as your retirement lifestyle.
