Full-Time RVing Isn’t Just For Retired People 

By  Luann Street



If you have been watching closely, you will have seen that full-time RVing isn’t just for retired people anymore.  This evolution of downsizing into tiny homes and RVs continues to grow. You see many full-time families on the road with their children and more often see people in the 40 – 50 age range leaving their jobs and finding income remotely. That is what we did.  We aren't retired. We work remotely for a full-time income and travel in our RV.  Read on for more details on this movement of people choosing the RV lifestyle for themselves.

Full-Time RVing Isn’t Just For Retired People

As we look back at how people retired, we would have seen that many people waited to travel until they were retired.  They worked hard for 40 years and saved money. If they had enough they would travel.  Often times that traveling meant buying an RV and going south for the winter and coming back near family in the summer.  Or they would buy an RV and take off and travel west (or east) to see what they could for anywhere from a couple of months to a couple of years before coming back to a house to live.

A Growing Trend

Over the past 10 years, there has been an insurgence of people who are hitting the road before they retire.  The age groups are getting younger and younger.  Our age of technology is enabling people to work remotely and travel.  RV sales are at an all-time high.  People are ditching suburbia and taking their kids to see America the Beautiful and educating them along the way.  Our daughter, her husband, and their 4 children are among this growing trend. This growing movement is something to keep an eye on. Full-Time RVing isn't just for retired people.

  1. We are preparing to go to an RV full time. We can’t do a lot of traveling yet as I have 3 1/2 years to retirement. But we talked and talked and decided to take the plunge now. So the issues we are having is the extreme negativity from others. Why are you doing it now? Why not keep the house and RV on vacations….etc.

    1. People, of course, have many different responses to a person’s full-time decision. But I honestly think those types of reactions are fear-based and they can’t imagine themselves doing that so they think you shouldn’t either. Or they are jealous (they don’t know it) that they can’t do it and don’t want you to be able to do it either. This is something to work through for sure….but the important thing is that it’s your life and your goal and shouldn’t be influenced by others. You won’t regret doing it now. Nobody I have ever talked to regretted doing in earlier rather than later. Many blessings as you move forward!
