Ryan and I are 100% sold on wanting to be full time rvers in a few years(maybe more like 6 or 8 years). What we are unsure about is how to get there?
Our discussion lately has been over what our next RV should be. We have basically outgrown our tent trailer. It’s a great little camper. It opens up to be almost 26 ft with 2 king beds at each end, but it’s just one big room, so we have no privacy.
Do we get a new RV that will last us for many, many years? Or do we save a few bucks, trade in our tent trailer on a used travel trailer and not take on a new payment?
We can convince ourselves of going either way. Neither of us want another monthly obligation. Yet what will ultimately be our home seems like a good investment of our money as well.
Ryan is always telling me, let’s buy a schoolbus and fix it up and live in it like a couple of hippies! My response is always the same, ok, once you’ve become a mechanic and can fix every little thing that can go wrong, I’m game!
My ideal trailer would be A 26 ft travel trailer with grandma and grandpa rocking chairs, for our special mornings, a big picture window and maybe bunk beds for the boys in the back. Not quite as colorful as this bus. 🚌
One of our favorite things to do when we’re camping is to walk through the campground and check out everyone’s RV and how they set up their camp. Ryan and I will bring a glass of wine and we’ll loop through the campground to get new ideas.
There is something kind of magical for me, walking through a busy campground just before dusk. Families are stoking the campfires 🔥, getting dinner going outside, kids playing around camp. These are some of my favorite sounds I’ve grown up with.
There is definitely something to the saying Happy Camper! When we are camping, we couldn’t be happier(Minus the trip where we lost power, and didn’t have any heat).
Just thinking of packing up and heading to the beach tomorrow with our trailer in tow, gets me super excited! We will continue our discussion for our future RV on another day, I think I will go start on a packing list…
What are your thoughts on RV’s? Do you have any crazy stories on backing into a site? That is one of my fears!! 😲 Thanks for reading and cheers to the weekend!🍻
