Road Van (RV) life is fabulous. Fun, travel, freedom combined in one lifestyle. But there are many aspects that can be optimized, to make your RV life even better. RV parking tricks : It is royally embarrassing to make all these gestures when you’ve got an audience of people watching, but I’ve learned that there’s no ego in getting the rig parked well. Every RVer who has been around a while has made a huge blunder of some kind while parking, and they’ve all lived through it. So a few members of your giggling audience will probably be very sympathetic to whatever mistakes you have up your sleeve.
If you’re anything like us, there will probably be some days when you’re ready to throw up your hands and declare that all this work preparing for life on the road just isn’t worth it. To combat this, it helps to create a vision board. A vision board can help you reach your goals, and help you stay motivated when things get tough. To make one, simply cut out pictures from magazines, or print off pictures from the Internet, that illustrate what you want life on the road to look like, and make a collage on a large piece of poster board. For example, you could put up a picture of the camper you’ve chosen. You could cut out pictures of a national park you’ve always dreamed of visiting or put up pictures of family that you want to visit. Whatever makes you happy and excited about living life on the road should go up on the board. Again, the vision board will help remind you why you’re doing this, which will help on those days when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
One In, One Out: This rule applies to anyone looking to prevent a build up of “stuff” in the RV. The “one in, one out” mentality changed the way we shopped. A trip to Costco meant we bought what we needed at the time, not what we think we might need in six months. Just because there’s storage space doesn’t mean it needs to be filled. A minimalist approach to RV living worked the best for us. Once we got the hang of it, life became much more enjoyable. We no longer had an “explosion” of stuff when we camped somewhere for a week or longer. It ended up becoming a “one in, two out” policy naturally and the bonus for us was saving money.
Short road van pick of the month : I have a Coachmen Class C RV, and the Pursuit is their shortest Class A. I know Thor owns the company now, but this might worth the try if you want to buy a short RV that is easy to drive and fits into most places. It has a ton of amazing features built right in, and they now have a model without slides (that is slightly longer than this). See extra details on supporting your RV lifestyle.
RV security system pick : Tattletale RV Alarm: This is another advanced security alarm system designed with modern technology to give your RV great protection from burglars. It has one of the fastest cellular alarm systems on the market, powered by Verizon at no cell charges. It is easy to set up and takes only about 60 seconds, can be plugged into any outlet and has an after-charge performance of up to 20 hours. What this means is that even when it is not connected to an electric source, you can continue to enjoy efficient protection.
You need to be financially aware and know how much income you are getting and what you are spending it on. You can do track them by saving your receipts that will give you an accurate record of your expenses. It will make it easy for you to make the necessary cuts and remove things you do not need. Since you will probably be moving most of the time, you will not need to have subscription services. Tracking your expenses will make it easy for you to make a budget suitable for living on the road.
