You’ve been dreaming of the day when you can leave the world behind and live in your recreational vehicle.
Let’s take a few moments and look at the idea a little closer.
In your daydream, you and your partner are happily living in your RV. The weather is always blue skies and the RV is perpetually brand new and perfect. In your dreams….
If you are not alone, does your partner really want to live like that, do you both share the same dream?
There are many self quizzes that will expose some of the requirements but it really boils down to a couple of very important ones.
Are you a collector? Do you have a cherished collection of items that you have worked all your life to assemble? Is your partner the collector? When you move into the rv one thing becomes painfully clear….It just won’t fit.
Look around you and decide what you can sell, give away, or trash. Even the largest dream rv has limited storage space and carrying capacity.
Are you friends with your partner? Not love, or lust, or any of those emotional ties but do you really like your spouse and enjoy spending time together? Consider just one aspect of this. Do you still sleep in the same bed? So many older couples had adopted separate sleeping arrangements after the kids have left home and the extra bedrooms are empty.
The very same reasons for making that change are still present. Most RV’s don’t have a practical spare bedroom even though the salesman proudly proclaimed the sleeping capacity
The people don’t change. If you or your spouse have a snoring problem, or grind your teeth or any other issue you didn’t address by sleeping apart, the time has come to really fix them.
There are many more things to consider when actually looking at the practical issues involved in moving into an RV full time.
The upside is tremendous. If you talk with veteran full time RV’ers, they will all mention the wonderful sense of freedom that comes from not owning all that “stuff”. If your home has wheels, there is no good reason for enduring bad neighbors, environment, or weather.
