Retiring To An RV

Article Contributed By Sally Writes Taking an RV as a retirement home is an attractive option - for  some, the appeal is the cheaper lifestyle and for others, it is the freedom to travel the country. It is no surprise that between 750,000 and 1 million American retirees call an RV their home. If you are prepared and plan carefully, you too can become a happy vagabond. And why not - RVing is good for you! Selecting your retirement RV As with houses, RV’s come in different shapes and sizes. When trying to decide what is right for you, it helps if you know what you are going to use it for. If you are planning on lots of travel, something that is smaller and easier to maneuver might be better. Alternatively, you might be wanting to spend the majority of your time in an RV park, so comfort and space is your priority. Whatever your requirements, it is a good idea to practice driving your desired vehicle a few times before taking to the road. If you are having trouble deciding, you could also look at renting an RV. Getting out and about RV’s and motorhomes are not difficult to drive. However, there are some differences to bear in mind. Parking, driving in traffic and braking are all different when comparing with the experience of driving a car. Your blind spot will be a lot bigger so it is important to stay alert and take extra care when navigating the country in your RV. Driving safely 100% of the time is important, especially when the vehicle you are driving is also your home. Setting up your new home When moving into any new home, you want to feel comfortable and prepared. An RV is no different. Be it that you’ve decided your RV needs a full refurb or you just want to decorate the walls, everyone’s needs are different. Aside from the aesthetics, there are some essential things to add to your RV - these include cooking utensils, a stock of canned goods, a first aid kit, sensible clothing suited to the climate you will be traveling in, and even games for entertainment when you park up. Safety and security are important too - make sure that your RV can be locked securely when you leave it and have a good torch, fire extinguisher, and tools in case of break down. Moving to a new home and starting a new adventure in your retirement is exciting. Be sure to make the most of the experience by preparing carefully and ensuring that your RV suits your needs. Most importantly - drive safe and have fun!
