If the thought of living in your RV full time has been on your mind, and you are reading posts just like this, then it is probably time to go for it. As with any change in life, you may have hesitations, but there are many good reasons why you shouldn’t wait any longer.
If any of these signs apply to you, then it is definitely time to start living an RV life:
- You are bored with your mundane daily routine
- You already have a remote job or plan how to make a living.
- You already have an RV or enough savings to buy one
- You want to get rid of your debt
- You spend too much time on social media
- You are jealous to see social media profiles of people who travel a lot
- You lack interest in further learning or hobbies
It’s time for a change and living in an RV full-time can be just the change and the adventure you have been dreaming about. RVing is a great solution to become debt-free, travel, and live life on your terms.
If you are able to set aside money it is easier to pack up and move off the grid. It also helps to have some form of employment or income planned too because, without a financial cushion and a way to earn a future living, your RVing dreams will not work out as well. Not having an income source is probably the main reason most people end up not being able to commit to living in an RV full time.
This does not have to detour you though, as there are ways to find opportunities. Many full-time RVers find jobs that allow them to work remotely or find seasonal work at different locations in order to make a living while on the road. But if you have a solid reason and truly want to make this lifestyle a possibility, don’t let the job factor stop you! The benefits below are waiting for you!
Be debt-free: If you’d like to get out of debt, living the RV life can help you. It is not as cheap as you may think at first, but in the long run, you do save. You will have to consider RV park prices and other unexpected costs. You can save more if you boondock more often, which means you live on Public Lands. It is also better to buy an RV if you can afford it rather than to take out a loan.
Live for every day: Having plans and something to look forward to on the weekends is great. Now imagine if that could be every day instead. With RVing, you get that Friday feeling every day. Some RVers are still tied to a workplace and have to sit in front of their computers from Monday to Friday, but if you are able to get a remote job that allows you to set your own schedule, living for Fridays will be a thing of the past.
Life is a vacation: Vacations are great, but it is even better when you have a life you don’t need a vacation from. RV life can do this for you. You can be surrounded by nature each morning, and instead of wondering when your next vacation is, you can live a life that you don’t need to escape from.
Get out of your comfort zone: You don’t really start living until you can step outside of your comfort zone and RVing is a perfect way to help you do this. Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential so look into the RV life as a small step towards reaching that goal and living the life you want.
Be free: Work schedules and finances make us feel trapped at times. Job responsibilities and bills keep us on tight schedules but if you don’t work, you won’t have money to live. It seems like an endless cycle. If you start living an RV life, you will have more freedom to do the things you like and not just after you retire. You never know how your health is going to be like then, so start living today and be free with RVing.
Simplicity and downsizing: The saying “less is more”, is true! Smaller living space means fewer things and less clutter and less stress. You no longer need to waste money on stuff to fill spaces and only have to buy the things you truly need. You will be more conscious of the things you bring into our RV since your space is limited. Smaller spaces are easier to keep clean which leaves you more time to enjoy life.
There is never a perfect time for you to take action. The right time is always now. No more making excuses and living in a dream within your head. Step outside your comfort zone, seize the opportunity to be free, and enjoy life. RVing keeps you debt-free, stress-free, and full of exploration and adventure.
