Many seniors are looking for a low-maintenance place to call home. They want a place that will be safe when they’re traveling. A place that will be easy to keep clean. A place where they won’t have to mow the yard or trim trees.
That’s why many seniors are choosing to become full-time RVers. This is a lifestyle of fun, adventure and autonomy. As they travel the country, anywhere they land becomes home. So, what makes this lifestyle so appealing?
The first is freedom and flexibility. Many seniors have children scattered across the country. They could be visiting a son in Texas one day and a daughter in California a few days later. Parking the RV in a driveway is free, and it affords both parents and children their own space.
Secondly, RV travels can find unique and creative ways to earn money. Some RVers choose to do something called work camping. It’s a short-term position where campers do work in the park in exchange for lot rent. In Florida, there are plenty of part-time jobs at theme parks, tourist attractions and state fairs.
Finally, RV camping is all about convenience. Seniors are able to travel light without numerous belongings, which makes it great for downsizing. Going from a full-size house to an RV can certainly be tough, but using some of our RV space saving tips, it’s certainly doable.
