    Loquacious Lauraposted 6 years ago husband and I are thinking of that as we retire.  We have always wanted to tour the country and see more of it so staying in a place for a time and moving on when we have explored it enough appeals to us!  As far as expense, it can't be any more than renting now or paying a mortgage depending upon how much you spend for extras and entertainment!

      My husband & I just bought a 36 ft Alfa 5th wheel, will be selling most of our "stuff", putting some in storage, giving our kids quite a bit, leasing out our huge home and moving an hour south to be close to our jobs. full retirement by age 60!!

    Neighbors !! Tell me they are not as bad when you are using an R.V !  Plus,variety,scenery,opportunity,the unknown. No one day is the same. Security. You have no need to rely on one job. You are able to move in no time if the job/work falls through,be available quick. The list goes on.
    Though I'm single no kids,etc. Love it..

    I think it is very much dependent on what stage of life you're in. If you're single or an empty-nester, it can be great to have the freedom of having a mobile home. You can travel, you ensure that your life is simple and relatively uncluttered because of the severe space restriction and you can avoid unpleasant neighbours. But if you have kids still living at home, give it a miss. Our family moved out of our home and bought an RV to do a 3 month tour of the US back in 2001. It was wonderful seeing the countryside but having more than one or two people in close quarters for extended periods of time is not a great idea. The four of us got much closer over that period of time, but there is also no place to 'escape' to when you argue or just need some privacy. Living in an RV will also do very little for your waistline! Because the kitchen is either tiny and ill-equipped or absent, buying fast-food becomes the norm rather than eating healthy, homemade meals.

    My wife and I think it would be so cool to get a nice Airstream and see the country that way. That way of life is at least 12 or so years away but one we look forward to! Oh, my top reasons for going it in an RV:
    1) Learning about and seeing new place and people;
    2) Enjoying that feeling of moving 'forward';
    3) Keeping things simple simplifies things;
    4) Crank up the tunes and enjoy the beautiful scenery and conversation
