A while back we wrote an article about our monthly RV expenses and broke everything down as best as possible. Part of our goal in traveling full-time on the road, is to be as transparent as we can, in order to help promote more full-time RV travel within the younger community. So far, we've received a wonderful response from followers and fellow-travelers in regards to that blog post, who appreciate the transparency. So, we wanted to say....there's more where that came from.
Recently, we were asked to share our thoughts on RV finances for an article being written by Connie Hays of Mobile Home Parts Store. Their hopes in writing this article was to gather as much information as they could about monthly expenses for full-time RV travel, in order to create a comprehensive guide for new RVers and seasoned ones alike. It turned out to be such a great resource, we knew we would have to share it here.
Kudos to MHPS for creating an incredibly thorough resource that we hope inspires more people to get out on the road. Living a life of adventure has been one of the most rewarding decisions Vanessa and I have ever made, and it really did not take us much to begin.
I found some of the answers by more seasoned RVers really interesting, versus the answers by the younger travelers. We've noticed that the older generation of RVers are able to spend a bit more monthly, because they have more in savings due to working so hard and retiring. They've sacrificed years of hard work in order to retire on the road, and more power to them! But younger travelers typically don't have that much in savings, nor can they afford to drop a large sum of money on a rig to start. Vanessa and I didn't have the resources to buy an RV outright, and we absolutely both work on the road to afford our lifestyle. But when you spend your days working from the comforts of your rig with a view like this...
...you'll find no complaints from us.
You can find the article in entirety here. Again, it's a great guide to start inspiring your road trip travels and budgeting out your wants and needs.
