The RV Lifestyle – Don’t Wait Till Retirement!

Ya, traveling Franz here! The RV lifestyle is something many people enjoy on a year-round basis. They travel south when it’s cold up north, and when it’s sweltering in the south they travel back north. That is why they are referred to as snowbirds. Most folks who adopt this lifestyle are older and usually into their retirement years. Some only get to enjoy it for a few years before failing health takes them off the road: their lifelong dream crushed.

There is a better alternative to get into the RV lifestyle sooner. There are several ways to do it. For those who are ready to give up the big house, all the possessions, the yard work, the shoveling of snow, the trips to Home Depot for needed repair items, etc., there is a way. Being able to travel to different locations, while seeing the sites is easy if one is willing to work part time while traveling.

Yes, the RV lifestyle can be achieved before retirement by just deciding to think of work in a different way. The first option is called work camping. This involves trading part time hours each week for a space in a modern campground or RV park. Typical duties include working in the office, cutting grass, maintenance, cooking, retail sales, and basically whatever else the owner needs workers for. For this they offer a full hookup RV site, and pay. Some places want part time workers, others will require workers to put in 40 or more hours a week, especially in the summer.

Another option to start the RV lifestyle sooner than retirement age is to find some online work. For example, there are people who need folks to teach online, consult, author content, and take customer service calls. This can all be done from the comfort of an RV, and at any convenient time chosen. These options allow for complete flexibility while traveling and enjoying the places one wants to visit. And North America is a big place with lots of beautiful spots to see!

The last option Franz will discuss in this article is to be self employed - create a business that can be done anywhere, anytime, and does not involve anyone else to create the desired results. There are companies out there that are looking for people to help them get their products in front of the folks that want them. And they are willing to compensate those that work with them in this online capacity. This option, if approached in the proper manner, can create the means whereby it is possible to begin the RV lifestyle decades before it may have other wise been possible.

These are just some ideas to help in getting “on the road’ sooner if the dream has always been to be a full time RVer after retirement. Why wait! It is possible if one only dares to dream a bigger dream!

As always, I wish you happy travels, vibrant health, many blessings, and a long life!

Ya, zis is Franz signing off!
