- For me, fulltiming is about the freedom to do what I want, when I want, and with whom I want.
- The ability follow the good weather, and avoid the bad.
- The thrill of the unknown. Not knowing what you’ll find in the next town you visit is exciting!
- No lawns to mow, trees to trim, house to maintain. Far less maintenance on an RV.
- You have a mountain cabin, beach house, country house, and city house, any time you want!
- Being flexible with your schedule. As a fulltimer, you don’t set hard dates too often. Most things can change at a moments notice.
- No property taxes.
- No local government politics to deal with.
- So small town chatter/gossip to deal with.
- A smaller living area means everything is easier to find, clean, and enjoy.
- Exploring new places on a regular occasion.
- The people. Most every fulltimer seems to be down to earth, friendly, and in general good people. This is where our Hippie part of The Digital Hippies comes in. Be good to everone you meet.
- Photography, you can take photos of every location you visit, and when you look back later, you’ll re-experience all of the past locations again!
- Bonding with your immediate family. Seriously, it takes work to live in such close quarters, but the closeness that you aquire from this lifestyle is unmatched by most stick and brick families.
- As Jimmy Buffet says, being on a “Perminant Vacation”
- Seeing the history of towns. Visiting museums, or festivals in places you’ve never heard of.
- Being in the middle of a forrest with no one around for miles… Perfect peace and quite.
- You don’t have to make the long drive home after visiting family right away. Stay the night and leave the next day refreshed.
- RV repairs are often times cheaper than home repairs.
- Not being close to family when they need you.
- Showers/Baths are not a relaxing event, rather a chore sometimes depending on your setup.
- A small refrigerator/freezer. (Some models have full sized appliances!)
- One more bad is having to leave the great, fast friends you meet all over when traveling. We met so many great folks, it’s often hard to move on (Contributed by Ray over at http://loveyourrv.com/)
*Disclaimer: These are general, short, opinions. Many of them can be debated, and this is just to provide many of the reasons I choose to fulltime in an RV. If you have anything to add to either list above, let me know in the comments.Subscribe to our mailing list
