Recreational Vehicle Living

We work in road construction which keeps us moving every couple of months. We used our RV to travel and stay at job sites; and we always felt comfortable and at home in our trailer.

We decided that selling our house and living full time in our RV would save us a lot of money. We wouldn't have to travel back and forth to maintain the house on our days off. We could use that time to do the things we enjoy like hiking and sight seeing.

The RV lifestyle is very inexpensive for us. The low monthly rents allows us to contribute to our savings account much more than when we had a traditional house to maintain. Plus it has given us more free time to do the things we really enjoy.

We're not sure if we will purchase another "permanent" home when we retire, but for now frugal living and saving like this is working out perfectly for us & we are putting away a ton of money for retirement.

This is the way to go if you also want to be living cheap in retirement!

We sold our home to retire and travel in our RV and have enjoyed it tremendously.

We wouldn't have been able to afford to have a regular house and travel too. We talked it over and decided to set our priorities on the things that would make us happiest. It has been a great choice for us.

It never would have happened though if we didn't talk it though and together make choices of what we could afford and what had to go. Where we could save money, so we would have enough left over to see the places we wanted to without wiping out the bank account!

Now we live a frugal retirement; saving all of the expenses of our house for our home on wheels. Cutting back on all the things that used to eat up our money and doing all the things we love.

It's a great life!
