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.

5 Reasons to Go RV Camping in Florida this Fall

Fall is one of our favorite Florida seasons. The weather is perfect, pumpkin pie is everywhere and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. So what makes RV camping during the fall in Florida so great? Well here are 5 reasons to get you going. 
1. Florida Loves Fall Festivals
In Florida, the weather is always nice. So when fall rolls around we are extra spirited. Fall festivals pop up all over the state. No matter where your Florida RV camping travels take you, you’re sure to find a great little festival near you. These often include pumpkin patches, hay rides, great food, apple cider and more! It’s fun for the whole family. 
2. Perfect Weather 
Imagine waking up on a crisp fall morning and having your coffee or tea outside while the sunrises. Then later you head to the beach to soak up the sun’s warm rays. In the evening you have dinner outside and enjoy the cool breeze. If you go RV camping in Florida, this is a reality. Our cool mornings give way to warm afternoons which turn into breezy evenings. It’s the perfect weather no matter what you want to do. 

3. Flip Flops Aren’t Just for Summer
When you come to enjoy fall RV camping in Florida you won’t need to pack and thermal underwear. In fact, us Floridians enjoy the beautiful freedom of flip flops all year long. In the fall, we often have a sweater or two, but that’s all! Without all those extra clothes you’ll have more room for the things you want to bring. 
4. Outdoor Malls
It’s hard to believe if you’re from the north, but we have lots of open malls in Florida. And we love fall so much that even our malls get in on the action. One popular outdoor mall in Wesley Chapel even has a 10 day fall festival. So grab your pumpkin spice latte, some flip flops and head out for a perfect day of fall shopping in Florida. Great weather and a little shopping will make anyone’s day. 
5. Open Windows 
In Florida, we love turning off our AC in the fall. When you come RV camping in Florida, you’ll be able to toss open those windows. Since it doesn’t get too cold you can even leave them open all night if you like to let in that amazing fresh air. It’s the perfect season to be here and we can’t wait for you to visit!
