Many campers buy RVs to save accommodation costs on weekend excursions and family vacations. After a few trips, a number of those buyers end up wanting to live full-time in their motorhome. Why? Because life on the road is exciting, adventurous and surprisingly comfortable.

Moving from a part-time RV enthusiast to living in your RV full time is easier than it seems, and it’s likely you’ll be happier with your life on the road than you were in your brick and mortar home.

Plan and Organize

Small preparations like making arrangements for mail pickup and changing your billing and banking to online options are necessary. Someone picking up your mail from a P.O. Box or street address every so often can save you from late fees on other types of bills (medical, taxes, etc.) You can often pay these bills online, but you may not receive notification that they are due.

In an increasingly online society, paying and receiving money are easy to do with an internet connection. Just make sure you have all of your accounts, passwords and preparations made before you hit the road.

Keep a Budget

Your expenses living an RV will be quite a bit different than those in your previous home, so keep a budget (at least in your first few years on the road) to get a better idea of how much you’re actually spending.

If you find out you’re overspending in some areas, such as costly camp sites, you’ll know to adjust your search and find cheaper accommodation.

Do It Now

What’s the biggest regret among travelers who took the plunge into full-time life on the road? That they didn’t do it sooner. You don’t have to be rich to be a full-time traveler, you just have to be wise about your budget when purchasing a vehicle and planning your travels. What are you waiting for?
