What We Wish We Knew Before Full-Time RVing
The idea of hopping into a trailer and traveling the country with your significant other can be very alluring.
It is especially pleasing for people who have finished raising kids and just want to enjoy their golden years and see their country. In order to help you get ready, we compiled a list from 4 couples who have been Rving for years about things they wish they knew before hopping into that RV.
The excitement to see all those places you have always wanted to see is understandable.
Unfortunately, spending most of your time driving from one place to another can wear you out pretty fast.
Remember you have a long time to travel to all those places. The best thing is to just slow down and enjoy every place for a while until it bores you.
A few weeks to fully experience one place and make a friend or two is really what RVing is all about.

Life doesn’t stop
Living full time in an RV doesn’t mean you are taking a break from life. Your responsibilities don’t magically disappear and you still need to keep up with your bills, emails, and businesses.
Making sure you have a plan to handle all that conveniently from anywhere will make the RV lifestyle so much easier.
Most people get WIFI hotspot or any good internet so they can check emails, communicate with people from home and pay bills.
You are together all the time
The whole RV is the size of your bedroom and there is nowhere to run to when you can’t stand the other person.
Being in such a confined space with one person for extended periods of time can be crazy even when you are in love.
Make sure you enjoy each other’s company and know how to solve conflicts amicably because it can get pretty uncomfortable in there.
The maintenance is costly
The number of times you can shower with cold water and have the toilet overflow on you is seriously outrageous. You have to really stay on top of the RV maintenance to ensure everything is in working order. The service can be cheaper if you are a hands-on person but it will be very costly to hire someone every time.
Big isn’t better
While a big RV means you have more room for your stuff and of course more air, it can be pretty inconvenient.
You will find out pretty quickly that a big RV can’t fit into many public spaces and that limits the number of places you can park.
Though the RV shouldn’t be too small for comfort, a medium one is better so you can freely park anywhere.
You don’t need that much
There really is no space for your set of dishes and your entire wardrobe or books. All you need is seven outfits or less and a piece of utensils for everything.
You can maybe carry two extra spoons and glasses in case of a visitor but remember you have no space to keep a lot of stuff.
Since you don’t want the RV to be messy and smelly, you have to do laundry and clean the dishes very often.
We hope that this list of what we wish we knew before full-time RVing will help you to plan ahead and have a great experience. With the right information and an I can do attitude, full-time RVing can be very fun.
