What you need to know about RV retirement


Slowly fading out are the days when retirement was spent on golf courses hobnobbing with the elite plaid pants-wearing people who also bored themselves to death holding yawnful games of bridge. Today’s modern retiree now has RV retirement travel as an enticing option.

RV retirement readily answers the need for adventure, challenge, and simple living while satisfying your wanderlust and eliminating boredom.

Yes, if there is one thing that a GPS for RV is perfect for, it is to bring you to a variety of destinations in your motorhome that no paper map can ever hope to match. And that’s just one tool among the many that you need to have in your RV.



What really makes RV retirement endlessly delightful?

RV adventure is non-stop. The call of the open road can be remarkably beckoning, and you can certainly ask the countless RV retirees out there for proof. It offers a wonderful means of visiting the many beautiful places in our great country. You can watch numerous sunrises and sunsets in different locations and feel a different flutter each time.

The RV lifestyle is a fantastic way of making new friends and acquaintances. On the road, in RV campgrounds, even in many Walmarts and other commercial retailers that allow RVers to camp overnight in their parking lots, there is an unlimited number of people you could meet simply because you share the same spirit of RV adventure.

RVers are friendly people who are willing to share their stories of the open road as much as they want to listen to yours. You can even get assistance from them in case of problems you might encounter.

The challenge on electing a flexible RV lifestyle in place of comfy, fixed living is a reward in itself. You will have to overcome RV driving issues and be able to maintain your home on wheels. You will have to forego the comfortable amenities you have been used to before retirement but the feeling of freedom is exceptionally fulfilling. Simply put, boredom has no room at all in RV retirement.



Being able to visit many new places to experience the large world we live in can be great for character as well as the mind. You expand your horizons limitlessly, learning new things as you go along. The places you visit provide that enrichment. Go where the wheels and your wanderlust lead you. The limits are only in the mind. You will realize that despite being a retiree, you still have a lot to learn about life and the world in general.

Choose the RV retirement lifestyle if you want to visit family and friends who you only get to see during holidays.

Full-time RV living is life at the most basic because there simply is not enough space to bring the comforts of home with you. If that is not the biggest selling point to RV retirement, I don’t know what is. You might experience getting shellshocked but that comes with the territory, and it will go away, eventually.
