The thought of giving up your home and living in an recreational vehicle may seem strange to some people but more and more people are starting to enjoy this lifestyle. Typically, the people who live in an RV are retirees but there has been a shift lately and more younger people are starting to catch on to this lifestyle. The misconception that living this way is costly is not always true and some are finding it cheaper to live in an RV as opposed to a conventional home and I’ll go over some of these advantages below.
It’s time to forget about Your Bills in an RV
Many of the bills that home owners must pay simply doesn’t exist when you’re living in an RV. Consider how much money you could save by not paying any of the following bills:
- Electric Bills
- Home Phone or Land Line Service
- Home Owners Insurance
- Home Associations Fees
- Water and Sewage Fees
- Home Repairs including painting, plumbing, exterminators
- Landscaping Costs
- And many more
I know you may be thinking that some of these fees like home repairs could be the directly in line with RV repairs but the cost of replacing a roof on your home is likely more costly than comparable repairs on an RV. There are costs associated with living in an RV but they are dwarfed by the costs of owning a home and the upkeep of that home.
Seeing The World in an RV
The greatest feature of an RV is that you can travel almost anywhere theres a bridge to get there. It lets you visit places that you never would imagine. Many times RV owners will stay and park in campgrounds where they are with other RV owners which means you can meet a huge variety of people from almost anywhere. Plus, depending on how much you travel the people and places could change drastically with each passing week. This is one of the most exciting things about living in an RV and it also attracts many younger individuals as well. It’s not just retirees that are enjoying the RV lifestyle anymore.
