Full-Time RV Budget
The most important thing you do before embarking on a major lifestyle change is to research the costs associated with it so you can set yourself up for success. To get you started, we wrote this article on how much it costs to RV full-time. There are so many unexpected costs associated with this lifestyle that most folks never tell you about. We feel so strongly about this topic that we even wrote a book about it and created a Full-Time RV Finance course with video modules and worksheets to help guide you through it.
Choosing the Right RV
A major component of the budget is your RV. There are many different types out there (motorhomes, vans, fifth wheels, travel trailers, etc.) and each has a range of price points. We wrote this article on choosing the right RV for your travel style.
Choosing Your RV Gear
Once you buy your rig, there are still many items that you’ll need to get your RV ready for the journey. Some are safety items that you’ll want before you embark on your adventure and others may be things you want to save up for and add as you can afford to.
There are so many people RVing now that even the most spontaneous travelers recognize the importance of trip planning, especially when you’ll be in a high-demand area. I use a simple 3-step process for finding campgrounds that are best suited to our needs.
Maintaining Your RV
It’s also very important to take care of your RV as it is very inconvenient to put it in the shop for repairs. In the video below we provide tips for performing routine preventive maintenance on your RV systems as well as basic care of the interior and exterior. Taking proper precautions can avoid costly problems down the road. We’ll cover useful habits and correct procedures to perform preventive maintenance tasks on RV systems such as water systems, batteries, holding tanks, and roofs for trouble-free operation.
