Deciding to give up your home and live full-time in an RV can be daunting and exciting. There are many unknowns and questions you will have. Where will I find campsites? Where do we dump waste and get water? How do we repair the RV on the road? Luckily, there are plenty of full-time RVers out there who are happy to share what they have learned about living on the road. It turns out that your life will change, but it is not as bad as most of us might think.

Traveling around opens up your world to so many new places and adventures. The opportunities are endless and you do not have to worry about cramming everything into one visit. You can always revisit the places you loved or change schedules and stay longer.

There is a learning curve in getting used to living in a smaller space. An RV can come to feel more at home than you expect, but the initial adjustment can take a while. Most RVs are equipped with all the amenities of a home so you really are not missing much.

You become less stressed. When you choose to live full-time on the road, you leave behind rent expenses and other bills. This means there is less to worry about and there is less stress in your life. You still have to make plans for travel and maintain the RV, but none of this compares to the hectic schedules of life at home.

You will miss relationships. But you will make new ones! Join to an RV club! It will make your life more fun.  Many RVers do form lasting bonds with other full-time RVers as their paths continue to cross and because of the common lifestyle, these bonds can be stronger than you might expect. You will find friends you can travel with for a period of time.

You have more flexibility when it comes to working. Most full-time RVers work from the road. There are a number of online jobs perfectly suited to RV life. Along with this comes the freedom to set your own schedule and your own pace. Only work when you need to. And there is no reporting to management and nobody is standing behind your shoulders to watch your every step.

You are not alone. Once you get out on the open road, you will see that others are doing the same thing. Full-time RVers are everywhere. It is the new way of life these days and a reality for more people than you might expect. What this means for you is that even though you are leaving your old life behind, there are others already paving the way, ensuring that your new life will be fun.

Deciding to be a full-time RVer is exciting and a little scary. Changes can be daunting but also are necessary. If you are making the decision to live in your RV, know that the transition will not be easy, but in the end, the changes to your life will be worth it.
