10 Reasons To Go For A Full-Time RVing In 2018.

A new year is always a great time to start something new with your family. If you’ve been thinking about full-time RV life, the upcoming year is a great time to get started. Whether you’re looking for confirmation that you’re making the right choice or you’ve been on the fence about whether or not it’s the right time for you to try full-time RV life, these key reasons might help make your choice easier.

1. Enjoy More Family Togetherness

There’s nothing to bring the family together like living in a small space. You’ve got the entire world as your backyard, so you won’t be crammed in together with no outlet; but you will be cozy and close at the end of each day. Not only that, you’ll have the opportunity to check out some amazing experiences together, building memories as a family that you wouldn’t have been able to have any other way. Whether your kids are young and you’re bringing them along for the ride or they’re older and it’s just you and your spouse, you’ll discover that full-time RV life helps bring you closer together than ever.

2. Experience the Worldย 

With all the rich historic sites and incredible landmarks available throughout the continental United States, seeing them all in a lifetime is an incredible challenge–but not if you’re living full-time in your RV. You have the potential to travel anywhere and everywhere: check out the Grand Canyon, visit Washington, DC, and wander through an Amish community. If you have school-age children, they won’t just be learning about the amazing features of geography or talking about history – they’ll be experiencing it firsthand!

3. Full-Time RV Life Will Tighten Your Budget and Increase Your Experiences

What could be better than a lifestyle that allows you to tighten your budget while increasing the number of things you’re able to do and experience? While there is a wide range of cost estimatesย when it comes to living full-time RV life, there are several places where you can lock down some serious savings. Imagine decreasing your monthly cost of living in spite of the fact that you’re traveling to some amazing places. How can you lose? You’ll have your “mortgage” paid off within a year or two, you’ll have no utility bills, and your cost of living will remain low for as long as you continue to live in your RV.

4. Spend More Time Outside

From picnic dinners on the table outside your RV to hiking trips with the family, there’s always something calling you outside–and the RV lifestyle encourages you to enjoy it to the fullest extent possible. With such a small space to live in, not to mention fewer distractions, you’ll discover that you’re able to spend more time outdoors. That means a more active lifestyle, more Vitamin D to keep you happy, and the chance to see incredible things along the way.

5. Clean Your Home in a Fraction of the Time

Let’s face it: keeping your home clean and tidy is one of the biggest time-sucks in your day, and the larger your home is, the harder it is to keep up with it all! When you transition to full-time RV life, you’ll be embracing a minimalist lifestyle in a number of ways. There’s less square footage to clean, less clutter to worry about, and fewer things that you have to clean up at the end of each day. That means more time that you can spend doing other things: enjoying your family, writing the novel you’ve always had rattling around inside your head, or checking out the best of each city you drive through.

6. Work from Anywhere

Not every campground has great WiFi, but the vast majority of them have at least a reasonable connection. If that doesn’t work, you can probably find a convenient coffee shop or another location–or raise your cell phone data to an unlimited plan and use it as a wireless hotspot. That means that you can do your work from anywhere, at any time. While some jobs are obviously more open to this style of work than others, if you have a job with the kind of flexibility that you can do your work from home, you’ll discover that, with the RV lifestyle, you can do it from anywhere. Those in creative jobs will quickly discover how valuable this can be to settling down and simply working, embracing creative flow thanks to the amazing inspiration in front of you.

7. Full-Time RV Life Will Develop Your Organization Skills

When you’re living in an RV, you develop organization skills quickly–not to mention learning to let go of things that you don’t really need in a hurry. There’s no room to leave things out, since a mess that would be no big deal in a house quickly overtakes your visual space in an RV. You’ll quickly learn how to tidy things away in a hurry–a skill that will translate back to everyday life if you ever decide to go back to an office job or living in a house.

8. Live Anywhere

full-time-rv-life-live-anywhereWhere is the wind blowing today? Do you want to spend your entire summer relaxing on a beach? Prefer the comfort of the mountains during the summer? Do you want to go skiing this winter–whenever you like? When you live in an RV, your next move is only as far away as you want it to be. Simply pick up your stakes and start the engine, and you’ll be ready to embrace your next adventure. It’s like having the perfect residence all year long, whether you’re chasing perfect weather or simply looking for a great place to live for the season.

9. Build Your Independence

When you embrace the RV lifestyle, there are plenty of skills to learn–and you’ll learn them fast. Whether it’s learning to cook in a smaller space, often with a more limited kitchen, or discovering how to make minor repairs to your vehicle on your own, you’ll become more independent than ever. You won’t be able to run over to a friend’s place to have the help you out every time something goes wrong, but that’s all right; you’ll quickly learn how to handle it yourself. And here’s the good news: when you live in an RV, there’s no need to pack up all of your belongings on moving day!

10. You’ll Always Have a Story to Tell

After just one year of living in an RV, you’ll have an incredible library of stories to tell to anyone who is interested in your life. Living in a house brings with it ordinary challenges experienced by ordinary people every day. When you live in an RV, on the other hand, your everyday life is an adventure. It’ll make you the life of the party whenever you pull into “home” for a while!


Living the RV lifestyle is a great way to embrace adventure and discover everything that the world has to offer. Every day is an adventure. When you choose to put in the energy and effort, you’ll discover that this can be an amazing experience. There will always be an excuse for putting it off: the kids are too young, you’re too old, or there are too many things holding you in town. This year, put your excuses aside and discover exactly what the world can offer you.
