Whether you’re retired, about to become retired, or embracing the location-independent working lifestyle afforded by the Internet, taking the leap from living in a home or apartment and moving into an RV full time might be just what the doctor ordered—so to speak. Living in an RV affords many benefits to those brave enough, adventurous enough, and even smart enough to embrace this radically different lifestyle. Talk to any “full-timer” at any long-term RV campground and you’ll hear mention of the same benefits over and over again, including:
More Time Outdoors
Do you wish you could spend more time in the great outdoors? When you live in an RV, you can. It’s true that you’ll want to spend more time outside because of the relatively small interior space, but for the most part the RV campgrounds you’ll stay at will afford you the opportunity to go for a hike, soak in the views, or enjoy nature however you see fit.
No Yard Work
Ever wish you could spend your time doing anything else but mowing, weeding, and raking? Fortunately, you never need to worry about yard work when you move to an RV full time. RV parks take care of all grounds maintenance, and if you camp in national parks the overgrowth is a part of the natural beauty. In any case, when you say hello to the full-time RV lifestyle you can say goodbye to yard work.
Great Weather Year Round
Another awesome benefit of living in an RV is the ability to go where you want, when you want, to take advantage of great weather all year long. Spend your winters out west, spend your summers up north, or pack up and leave whenever you find a specific place too hot, cold, humid, rainy, or dry. It’s that easy when you live in an RV full time.
