What is the first roadblock to full-time RV living that must be hurdled?
In my humble opinion, it is finances. Everyone’s excuse – I’m broke – Do you think you can’t afford to travel? Well maybe you can’t afford to hop on a plane and fly to a foreign country (and neither can I) but I would ask you to think about how you can discover the land where you live right now.
My first roadblock is financial. I am not yet ready to buy an RV. Let’s face it, these monsters are $50k and up brand new. Of course, I could buy used but I really need a warranty. I know my limitations and automotive work is not something I can handle.
To address the roadblock of financial struggle and full-time RV living, I will first need to backpedal. Yes, dare I say take a few steps back? Perhaps we can call it pivoting. When life throws us curve balls, sometimes we must change direction and that is what I have decided to do. While I save the money to purchase my RV outright, I have decided that traveling is still going to be a part of my life; and you can too.
I must think about why I want to live in an RV. My motivational factor is that life is too short to spend sitting at home, watching TV, and letting life just happen. I need adventure, even if it means I can’t live in an RV right now. But how do I afford adventure on my limited budget?
I afford adventure on my limited budget by using my home as a base camp. I live in Ohio and there are many wonderful places to see:
- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland
- Football Hall of Fame in Canton
- Air Force Museum in Dayton
- Cedar Point in Sandusky
- And let’s not forget the home of the National Tractor Pulls – Bowling Green
Just to name a few.
