And Yesterday We Went...RV Shopping
I think that living in an RV would be perfect. We would own very few things (I am such a minimalist; this sounds wonderful to me), and best of all, we can change location any time we want. Seattle for the summer, the southeast for the spring, the northeast in the fall, and Vegas in the winter. That sounds perfect to me!
Hubby is less than enthusiastic. His current answer is no way, he loves Vegas and he loves our new house. So, like any other time I want to get my way, I used logic: living in an RV would save a lot of money, we could see the kids and family more often, we could get out of Vegas during the super hot summer, we would have very few bills...etc. He still said no way but he did like looking at the RVs so that may be a start. Since housing prices are increasing in Vegas, it may just be a matter of time before we end up living in an RV. Especially if prices go up so much that we could sell our house and pay cash for the RV. I will continue to work on the hubby when it comes to this issue.
Of course we won't be buying the above RV. $300,000 for an RV kind of defeats the purpose of living cheaply, but it is nice to dream. These super fancy RVs have washers and dryers, gas fireplaces, side by side refrigerators and even ceiling fans! The RV we can afford would be considerably smaller and considerably less fancy. But we are hardly home anyway--we are always out and about--so this won't matter much. Plus we had an RV years ago and we really liked it (we couldn't afford it and so it often sat in the driveway while we worked to pay for it, but we really liked it).
One thing that makes me think this could really happen is that I was reading my blog from a little over two years ago and noticed that we had no inking that a couple of months later we would be in the process of selling our house and nearly everything in it so who knows, we may be "full timers" sometime soon!
