I am very excited about this new post and to see where it will take me on my journey. First 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 $1,120
We have not moved so no gas costs.
Bought a new outside camping mat and let me just say I LOVE it!
Total Costs – $1,469
Wow, time is flying living in the RV. I really feel like I’m growing due to this lifestyle and learning so much about me from it. I have learned I really don’t need a lot of space to feel happy and fulfilled in life. I don’t feel cramped in this RV on most days. The days I do I just go relax outside for a bit and take in the beauty.
I’m seeing a trend here of this being consistently a good financial move for us. I have been under my old expenses consistently for months now. We have not had any huge expenses yet (fingers crossed). I have done maintenance on the RV but eventually, new wheels will probably be fairly costly but still not all that bad when you factor how much I have saved from this lifestyle.
In case you missed it here is last month’s break down. Keep on the journey and path!
