Living in a camper full time is more common than you might think. They aren’t just for family road trips or retirees, even though they’re great for those people. Check out the Camperguide for more ideas.
Camper living provides you with benefits you wouldn’t have if you were renting or buying a more traditional type of home. Let’s go over just 5 of the many benefits of living in an RV full time.
1. More Freedom
When you own a traditional home, it’s stuck in one place. While this works for many people, for others it can feel constricting and limiting. If you ever wanted to move somewhere else, you’d have to deal with selling your home, buying a new one, moving, packing etc.
That’s not the case when you live in a camper. You can pick up an move your entire life easily and quickly by simply driving to wherever you want to live. If you have wanderlust, the itch to travel, meet new people, and experience new places, living in an RV would be an excellent lifestyle for you.
When you live in an RV, you’re joining an awesome community of people. People who live in campers full time have formed a community that can connect you with new friends, mentors, and interesting connections.
Whether you meet new people on the road or at an RV park, you’ll be sure to meet all types of diverse people and join an awesome RV community.
3. Save Money
Downsizing your life and packing it all into an RV will save you money on home costs, loans, living expenses, and more. You won’t be spending as much on maintaining a large home and your day to day living costs will be greatly reduced.
Making life more affordable is a great benefit to living in a camper full time.
4. Simplify Your Life
When you move from a traditional home to an RV, there’s no doubt you’re going to have to downsize. You’ll narrow down your belongings to things you actually use and care about.
Imagine only having material items you use and cherish instead of a home filled with a bunch of stuff you haven’t used in years. The smaller space forces you to live a more minimalist lifestyle, which will make your life simpler overall.
5. Live Anywhere Anytime
The freedom we mentioned earlier will allow you to go anywhere you want whenever you want. Do you have the urge to visit the Grand Canyon? You can up and go whenever you want.
Tired of cold winters? Go down south for the winter and come back north whenever you feel like it (preferably after the snow melts). Want to see the flowers bloom in DC in the spring, but prefer living in the mountains of Idaho the rest of the year? that’s feasible and easy with RV life.
Living in a Camper Has Serious Benefits
You don’t have to be a retiree or some sort of granola hippie to live in a camper full time. People of all ages with all types of families have switched to living in a camper because of all these great benefits.
