I want to go over a few key points on why I want to do this monthly cost review.
- I have not found any Full-Time RV living cost break downs
- Keep me accountable
- Track my true RV costs
- Show others it might be an option to not only accelerate their FIRE journey but build a more intentional lifestyle.
So here are my true costs.
RV Payment $209
Truck Payment $89
RV Insurance Payment $0
No insurance costs because I paid for the next 12 months in December’s update.
Truck Insurance $0
No insurance costs because I paid for the next 6 months in December’s update.
Campground Site $0
This park will charge us in May.
We have not moved so no gas costs.
Total Costs – $298
Let’s just say this is not typical of our costs living in the RV. But this month in unique because we did not pay for our park and we stayed stationary for the whole month. Also, we bought nothing new for the RV. Lately, we have been buying odd things for the RV to make it more homely. May there will be a few items we end up buying for it.
This lifestyle is not for everyone. But I do enjoy it 99% of the time. Sometimes I do wish I had a bit more room in it. Yet that is not a huge issue in the big scale of things. So far it’s saved me at least $1,000 a month it looks like but I will do the math once I hit around 6 months in the RV. Try new things in your life to see If you enjoy them or not. Start really thinking and planning your future out. Personally I’m trying to live my FIRE lifestyle today.
Also, I need to get better at taking pictures and keeping them for these posts lol!
In case you missed it here is last month’s break down. Keep on the journey and path!
