Are you thinking that RV living is the life for you? Many people in Vancouver are taking up this trend to the rapidly rising house prices. However, this isn’t always ideal for everyone as it takes a special kind of person to master the art of living in an RV full time. Let’s find out if it’s right for you. Travelling to the interior during the summer is the perfect time to use your RV.
First you have to decide whether you want to live alone, or with someone. Living alone grants you more space and privacy, but living with someone provides companionship and reduced costs. We think that if you plan to live with someone, you should choose very carefully, maybe include a trial run before you commit.
Now you need the actual RV to live in. While you can buy new, we suggest going used, if you could afford a new RV, you probably could afford a home. Craigslist is a great place to start, and don’t be afraid of fixer uppers. You can use the savings to build the inside to your ideal setup. Some of the most popular RV’s that people live in are Volkswagen Vanagons. Watch out though, these are in high demand and can be pricey.
There isn’t much room in an RV. You will have to make some sacrifices in what you are able to bring with you, try to choose the absolute necessities. You should grab a self storage unit to store things that won’t fit in the RV but you will still need.
