My  mobile retirement home

My mobile retirement home

Hello everyone, I am 59 years old and I just retired from the US national guard. I had some money saved in for retirement so I decided to splurge and purchase my first RV.


I decided to sell the house and move into my RV and travel across the USA. The most important issue when preparing to become Full Timers is space, remember this is your a home.

So you are going to wanna shop around a little bit first. I wanted something that would drive nice on the road and I chose a 36' travel trailer. It is very cozy and peaceful, in a way it feels like my first apartment when I was a teenager.

In my RV I have a bedroom, a nice size living room, a working kitchen and bath. What more could we want?

One of the best advantages I feel is the extra space and adequate storage, and no steps up to the bedroom. Travel trailers are the most reasonably priced RVs as well. I paid a little over $80,000.

But one thing I will recommended is that you get a step up for your RV. If you health is on the down or have bad knees. You need everything on one level with only a couple steps to come in the front door Climbing steps has become a little bit of a pain but the advantages totally are worth it.

In summary living in a long travel trailer can be quite comfortable and a great way to retire. .

I agree with you. I am just 57 and sold my home and decided to try and pay off my RV while I was still employed and now plan to have it paid off in five years. God Willing. I live in a very economically priced RV park which has no fancy bells or whistles, but only cost $200/month plus your electricity. I am saving money while getting used to living and traveling in my RV. It's been two years now and I love. I have a 35'Damon Challanger Class A Gas with two slide-outs. It's just my cup of tea.
