16 Full-Time RVers Answer FAQs About The Mobile Lifestyle

When you live full-time in an RV you get a lot of questions about your chosen lifestyle. And when you fall into the category of a nontraditional full-time RVer—i.e. a non-retired couple who works from your RV, a solo RVer, or a family on the road—the curiosity about your lifestyle is even higher.

As someone who fits this description (not retired and living full-time in my RV) I know first-hand the types of questions people often ask about our finances and the logistics of living and working from an RV. And I wondered if others got the same type of questions.

So I reached out to some of my fellow nontraditional full-timer RVers and asked them to share their most frequently asked RV travel related question. Here’s what they had to say:

Tales From The Mutiny

Lynn, Clark, and crew have been full-time in their beautifully remodeled class A for over five years.

Most frequently asked question:
Q: What is your favorite place?
A: It’s an impossible question to answer. Just when I think, “Oh, Glacier National Park ” I’ll remember McCarthy, Alaska. But I’d love to live in Mancos, CO. Then again, our second trip to Death Valley reminded us that it will forever be our favorite National Park. It’s the hardest question not to ask (we still ask full-time friends when we get together) but it’s also the hardest to answer. Oh…395…Highway 395 is our favorite, and Highway 12 through Southern Utah…

Wandering with Purpose

Kelly and Dave live full-time in their 27-foot Airstream. The first two they were mostly stationary in an RV park in Half Moon Bay, California so they could remain close to work. After their jobs went remote, they’ve been traveling full-time ever since.

Most frequently asked question :
Q: Oh, there are so many! We get, “Everything you own is in the Airstream,  how did you do that,  how did you pare down all of your possessions?”
A: It was a process that started before we moved into the Airstream. We downsized from a 2,200 sq ft. house to a 900 sq ft apartment and then eventually to the Airstream. Once we got going, it was empowering and so very easy to just let it all go. We are SOOO much happier with fewer things. We have a very adventurous life that is so much more fulfilling. We wouldn’t change a thing!

Most frequently asked question:
: What is the most favorite place you’ve ever been?

Amanda Watson

Nancy, Betsy, and Spirit have traveled the country full-time in their gorgeous 45-foot Class A motorhome for over seven years.

Do you both drive?

Paul and Nina travel with three pets in a 40-foot Holiday Rambler Endeavor.

Most frequently asked question:
Q: How much does it cost (to RV full-time)? And how do you afford it?
I say costs vary depending on how you camp and travel. Lots of controllable budget items can change those numbers. I’ve seen people RV with budgets varying from $1K/mo on the lowest end up to $5K/mo on the higher end. And we work on the road for the lifestyle.
