So you’ve got an idea of what your life will look like after you buy an RV. But have you thought about why your new life is better? Why do you need another space to live in? Why can’t you just stay at home and be happy? The answer might surprise you. Most people don’t own an RV because their lives are perfect. They own one because it helps them cope with something that isn’t so great in their lives.
Your schedule is flexible
If you have kids, you know how hard it can be to get everyone to be on the same schedule. In fact, many parents end up working two jobs just to make ends meet. That’s why having more flexibility in your schedule is so important. Not only do you not have to put in as many hours trying to pay the bills, but you also have more time to spend with your family.
If you travel with your family, you’ll see how much you really need flexibility. When you’re home, you might be able to take an extra 30 seconds to help your kids with a homework assignment. If they’re out of town at a tournament, you might be able to make it to their game soon enough to offer a little help or encouragement. The flexibility to choose your schedule is one of the best perks of RVing.
You get to enjoy the great outdoors more often
If you’re anything like me, you love the great outdoors. You feel like you’re getting a lot more than you would in a typical structured indoor space. But let’s be real, you can only be outside for so long before the weather turns the sky black and you need to go back inside. With an RV, you can enjoy the great outdoors all year long. You can travel to places where the weather is more comfortable.
You can also escape to places where you can enjoy the great outdoors without any rain at all. Not having to deal with bad weather can be a huge bonus in any part of the world. You don’t have to change your travel plans because the weather is bad. You don’t have to stay inside and rush to the nearest indoor space when rain is in the forecast. You can go out in your RV and enjoy the great outdoors whenever you want.
It’s cheaper to travel
If you like to travel, you know that it can get really expensive. You might have to spend thousands of dollars on a trip just to get everything together. Add in the cost of the flights, hotels, rental cars, food, and entertainment, and you could be spending a lot more than you want to.
With an RV, you can travel to many places for a much smaller amount of money. Of course, you might spend some money on maintenance, but for the most part, it’s cheaper than flying or staying in hotels. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get to your destination. You might even be able to do it for free, like traveling across the country in your RV.
You have a safe place where your pets can feel at home (and vice versa)
When you own a house, you either feed your pets or don’t. The same is true when you have an apartment. But what happens when you travel and you have pets that don’t like to eat dog food or cat food? You can’t leave them at home with no food or water. So, you have to bring them with you or leave them home alone. With an RV, you don’t have to worry about feeding or watering your pets.
You can bring them with you and they can have a place where they feel safe and at home. You don’t have to worry about leaving them home alone when you have to go away for a few days. They can get food and water, even if you can’t. This is a huge bonus for pet owners that want to travel with their pets, but don’t want to leave them at home.
There’s so much more space for you and your friends and family
One benefit that isn’t talked about nearly often enough is the amount of space you get in an RV. It’s not about the size of an apartment compared to a house. In fact, an RV is usually much bigger than a house, but it’s about the amount of space you have inside your RV. You don’t have to cram your whole family into one space and make them fight for every inch of space.
You have enough room to have people over for the holidays without making everyone feel like they have to move. You can have a few friends over without them feeling crowded. You don’t have to cram everyone into a tiny house or an apartment. With an RV, you get the space you need to feel comfortable.
You have a new home for all of your stuff
One of the best benefits of an RV is that it’s a mobile home. That means you don’t have to pay property taxes or contribute to homeowners insurance. That means that you can save a lot of money on your taxes and insurance. And you don’t have to worry about finding a place to park your RV while you’re looking for a house.
You can buy an RV and never have to worry about finding a place to park it. You can put your RV in a parking spot, and never have to worry about paying a monthly fee or finding a specific place to park your RV. That might sound like a really minor benefit, but it can really add up over the years.
You won’t be tied down in one place anymore
One of the biggest downsides to owning a house is that you’re always in one place. That means if you have a bad day or a bad week, you can’t just leave your house and get some space. You have to deal with whatever is causing you so much stress. With an RV, you can leave whenever you want.
You can go to a friend’s house, go camping, or just go somewhere else entirely. You won’t ever be stuck in one place with no way out. You can leave whenever you want and not have to deal with whatever is causing you stress.
There are lots of ways to save money when traveling in an RV
One of the best benefits of an RV is that you can travel in style. That means you can upgrade your travel experience and get to your destination in style. That means you can stay in nicer hotels, eat at fancier restaurants, and see the sights that are really worth seeing.
You don’t have to settle for the first place you find that is close to what you want to see and do. You can find a cheaper option, or look for something a little more expensive. That way you can enjoy the experience you want, and save money at the same time.
Your new life in an RV might surprise you, but once you think about it, you might realize why it’s better. So, if you’re ready to make the move, let’s talk about what you need to do next.
