7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT AN RV BY NOW

I never thought I would be such an RV advocate. Heck, I never thought I would live in one full-time. Traveling the country in a Winnebago wasn’t on my bucket list.

However, the past few years RVing have enabled Heath and I to travel all over America, live incredibly cheap so we could pay off more than $15k of student debt, and attain a crash course education in “how to live in a small space with your spouse 101” (lesson #239: learn to forgive your husband when he accidently locks you in the shower for 30 minutes).

Like most people, I didn’t dream of growing up and living in a motorhome. Yet it’s literally been the vehicle that has allowed us to cross so many adventures off our bucket list and live an incredible life.

If you are someone who isn’t sure whether the RV lifestyle is for you, I wanted to share 7 reasons why you should’ve bought an RV by now.

  1. You love the outdoors.

Plus, there’s this whole group of people who are running their own respective businesses while traveling the country.

This creates an awesome opportunity for anyone who wants a meaningful career, but also loves the idea of skipping around national parks and working from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection.

People like my wife Alyssa and I fit into this category.

HOW TO TRAVEL AMERICA ON 2K A MONTH

Let me be totally honest for a second, there was a time during our travels when our bank account hit $67. It was September 2014 and we had no idea how we would finish our trip to all fifty states. Heck, we had no idea if we would be able to buy groceries.

 

The biggest hurdle to traveling is universal: finances.

HOW TO PLAN A ROAD TRIP USING PINTEREST

When it comes to planning a road trip, Pinterest isn’t the number one source that comes to mind. Aside from the fact that Pinterest is a great place to get lost in a sea of copycat recipes and makeshift tutorials, it also can be an incredible resource for planning your next road trip adventure.

Some of the most beautiful places we’ve visited in the past three years of RVing I’ve found because of Pinterest, like this awesome sight on the coast of Oregon called Thor’s Well.
