I’ve done a fair amount of traveling in my life. Via vacations and business trips I’ve been to New York City, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, Mexico, Toronto, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, the Ozarks, the Florida Keys (and most of Florida), Upstate New York, New Orleans, the Shenandoah Valley and National Park, every Civil War battlefield east of the Mississippi, and many, many, beaches. I will likely add many of these places to my RV travels bucket list to visit again but, for the purposes of this list, I am focusing on national parks. I’m sure we will visit Washington, D.C. again, as that is definitely a must for the grandchildren.
How do you choose the right RV? Well, I’ve been looking at all the different types of RV’s and floor plans for a few months now and I still can’t make a decision. One day I’m convinced that I’ll buy a 25′ fifth wheel, the next I consider a 25′ travel trailer, and the next I’m considering a Class C and towing a small car. One thing is certain (for now), I don’t want a Class A. For some reason the thought of buying a Class A lasts only a nanosecond.
I’ve been thinking about becoming a full-time RV’er for many years. The dream of living full-time in an RV and traveling (slowly) through the U.S., Canada, and possibly Mexico. For the past few years, I’ve been living in Indiana, where my son, daughter-in-law, and my three grandchildren are. Just a few months ago my son started talking about selling their house to become full-time RV’ers, homeschool their kids, and work camp along the way. Couldn’t believe what I was hearing and did a little dance to the music to my ears! Continue reading “Should I or shouldn’t I? The decision to become a full-time RV’er.”
