Is Living Full Time In A Motorhome Right For You?
It is estimated that there are millions of people living in their motorhomes full-time. Many of these people are either retired, self-employed so they can work anywhere or people who work a few months out of the year – just long enough to have a savings that will sub-sustain them for the rest of the year.
It may surprise you that many project managers, construction workers and engineers live in their motorhomes full time, moving from job to job. It can be easier economically to have the comforts of home without the cost of a hotel. This is especially effective if the jobs are brief to avoid the high cost of lodging.
Here are a few things to consider when asking yourself is living full time in a motorhome is right for you.
If you have a partner, are both of you really interested in doing this?
When you are living full time in a motorhome you are living in close quarters. If both or either of you are concerned about this it might be wise to consider a motorhome rental in Nelson. This way you can take the motorhome on a holiday for a few weeks and get a taste of what it would be like to live in one full time.
Have you really thought about all the things you will be giving up living in a motorhome full-time?
Many people will consider the space they give up or all the material possessions they will need to go without, but what about modern day conveniences?
Phones have become a large part of our daily lives and some people are not able to live without them. You can still have your cell phone when living in a motorhome but remember that many rural places do not have the best, if they even have it, service. Long baths or hot showers will be a thing of the past for you, that is unless you want to be visiting the dump or getting water pretty often. Think about everything before you commit to full time motorhome living. If you are not sure about giving up these everyday things a motorhome rental in Picton for a few weeks will help you decide if you can or can’t go without them.
Money – do you have enough of it?
If you have a job where you are already traveling then there will not be as drastic of a change for you and you could also consider a motorhome for hire in Picton for your next job to see if it is a fit for you. But, if you are used to working full-time in one location you may find that money will be an issue. Many people who choose to live in a motorhome full-time work for themselves or have the freedom of working anywhere for their employer. If you do not have a source of income set up before you head out for your life on the road, do you have a sufficient savings account in order to be able to afford your needs? Don’t forget you will need to have some money stashed away for emergencies like vehicle repairs.
If any of these questions are concerns for you then for your next holiday consider a motorhome hire in Nelson or a motorhome rental in Christchurch.
