There are always common misconceptions about subjects we are not overly familiar with.
Dining out, groceries, those things don't change. You may save in some areas, but your budget will be more in new areas of spending (like extra fuel for travel).
The reality is what we tended to do in our house, we will probably continue to do in our RV home. Moving from one environment to another is not enough to instigate change.
BONUS: A different view whenever you want it!
One continuous vacation sounds like a good idea in theory, but in practice it’s one of those RV living myths that doesn’t work. How do you feel when you get back from vacation? How much of your budget is consumed in a vacation?
You can set roots up if you want, change views when you want. It is the benefit of RVing. But your RV home should not determine who you feel you are and how settled you feel in an area.
RV living lets you stay longer at your family and friends’ homes because you don’t have to limit your stay to a week or two vacation time.
BONUS: You make new friends who also live in their RVs!
A new experience grows out of moving into an RV. You might lose a few temporary things, but you gain a lot more in return.
Learn to make money on the road. Do it while you are young enough to travel and maintain your RV with no current health issues.
