A Journey of a Lifetime: How We Chose an Amazing Life on the Road Full Time RV
Full-Time RV Living - House to RV in 4 Weeks!
Making the choice to live full-time in an RV was one of the best decisions we ever made!
After watching other RV enthusiasts travel full-time for years, a spur-of-the-moment decision was made.
July of this year marks 6 incredible years since we chose an amazing life on the road!
To celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary together and embrace this milestone in our lives, what could be better than an 8600-mile journey across America?
Meeting with some local dealerships to check out RVs set off an exciting adventure that eventually lead us to pick up a brand-new one by late July.
What began as merely a thought quickly became reality and brought about everlasting memories ever since!
The Decision to Go RVing
We had been watching other full-time RVers travel around the United States for years.
So when we decided we needed a change in July 2017, we decided to take a leap of faith and pick up a brand-new RV.
We knew that if we didn't do it then, we might never do it at all.
So after talking it over, we decided to go for it! It made sense since we have family across the United States from New York to California.
Finding the Perfect Fit
To get started on this amazing adventure, we had to find the perfect fit for us.
We visited local dealerships and checked out RVs of all shapes and sizes.
I knew I wanted one with a washer and dryer since we previously had one on our land in New York.
After not finding the exact one at our local dealerships, I decided to look online.
I found quite a few but there was one in particular that stood out. A 2017 Keystone Alpine 3301GR 5th wheel.
It wasn't oversized, had large windows, (I need lots of light!), a washer/dryer combo unit, made for four seasons, tons of counter space, a desk area for me to write, and even a dishwasher. YES!
I was in love!
It was located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was on our way to NY.
There was only one problem...our current truck which was only 2 months old, wasn't going to pull it. UGH!
We had an open house yard sale, put the rest in a POD (big mistake, more on that later), bought a truck to pull it, had a hitch put in, packed up a small U-Haul trailer, and set out on our adventure.
There were plenty of mistakes made just in that paragraph above, but we will get to that later. 😉
Putting everything leftover in a POD is just one of them!
Full Time RV Living Conclusion
Looking back at those 6 incredible years since deciding to pursue an amazing life on the road is something my husband and I cherish every single day.
The sense of freedom that comes from exploring different places while spending time with your loved ones is incomparable. Something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!
