Realizing your RV Dreams: Conquering the 2 Major Fears

Traveling the country in a recreational vehicle (RV) is a dream that many people have, but very few actually achieve.  This disparity rises from 2 specific things: first, fear of leaving a well-paying, consistent job, and second, lack of money.  It seems that these two go hand-in-hand, doesn’t it?

 The fear of leaving a job is a phobia that is very real, and incredibly terrifying to some people.  Since birth, you have probably become accustomed to the idea that it’s necessary to be firmly locked into a secure job for a large majority of your life in order to be successful.  However, when you examine it, you will find that the security of your career can sometimes be an obligation that is confining, rather than freeing.  Moreover, when you examine what is believed to be a lack of money, you’ll likely find a lack of research, goals, and planning instead. 

 So, financially speaking, how can you make your dreams of RV Travel a reality?

 Writing off the idea of RV travel for so long has probably lead to a lack of budgeting for any sort of RV trip for yourself.  Instead of simply disregarding your goal, start planning for it!  When you consciously make it your goal to travel the country in an RV, you naturally begin to preserve money for the trip by changing your mindset.  Don’t just put away any sum of money though.  Do some research on the type of RV that will fit your needs, and budget not only for the vehicle, but fuel, campsite, and utility fees as well.  It’s imperative that you set specific monetary goals to achieve by specific dates.  This ensures that you will reach your objective.

 On to the next hurdle: “How am I supposed to leave my job?”

 The fear of leaving a job often stems from another fear of not having enough money to live comfortably.  The beauty in this is that if you budget for your trip, you know that you will have enough money to live comfortably in your RV by the time you leave.  In addition to this, you may have a job or a skill that you can do online from any location such as writing, computer programming, graphic design, etc. 

 If you must leave the digital world to work, remember that just because you are traveling does not mean that you can’t work.  Sites like workcamper.com post jobs for people traveling by RV and details on how to contact employers.  You can also ask around at local campsites, because those campers are likely working and/or looking for a job just like you.  While you will not become rich while traveling, there are a vast amount of resources that you can utilize to make a sufficient income that supports your lifestyle.

 Trekking to RV resorts across the country is not a dream that will fall into your lap, it requires work and planning, but all the resources are right at your fingertips!  When you make the decision to realize your RV dreams, you’re already halfway there.
