If you're looking for ways to pay off your RV purchase, you might consider renting it out occasionally. Mark Jenny makes a compelling argument for it in this article.
RVshare.com can help you find the perfect renter. Listings are free.
I was asked that question recently (even though we're not full time RVers ourselves). There's no one-size-fits-all answer but the opinion of these 19 RV experts may help you figure out if you're financially ready.
When the RV Geeks, who are currently in Australia, decided to video their stop at one of our Boondockers Welcome hosts, they had no idea of just how welcoming hosts in Oz might be. I think they were wowed! The video says it all.
It may be possible to travel around Costa Rica by RV but is it practical?
This brilliant editorial by Chuck Woodbury was first published 4 years ago but we're still waiting for campground owners to be enterprising enough to fill this obvious void in the market.
Goodbye Costa Rica. Leaving is difficult and expensive!.
The budget aside, we've crammed a lot of fun into the last two weeks in Costa Rica.
Riding Costa Rica buses - with a little extra patience, life without a car is very possible here.
Although nature and wildlife surrounds our Costa Rica home, we splurge on a guided river rafting trip - our first real tourist-oriented excursion of the trip.
Search for images of Lake Arenal and you'll almost certainly find clouds or rainbows.
How are the potato's that you buy at the local market?
Pura vida or la vida loca? There is a difference.
While Costa Rica's beaches are beautiful, they're not ideal for a long-term stay. This location is perfect for us!
Love your snap shot into this wonderful rental - and your view! Hope you and Randy enjoy your stay. Have a blessed day filled with unlimited possibilities!
Our Costa Rican casita: what can you expect in a vacation rental for just $600/month?
Our Costa Rica budget, the mistakes we've made and, our expenses to date.
We set out to explore Costa Rica and figure out whether and how affordable it can be. We'll track expenses and compare it to RV travel.

All RVers who like boondocking on American public lands need to be aware of this. Please note this is not an isolated article about it. Do a google search and you'll find others. I'm posting it to inform you of what's happening - not as a political statement.
We have the Fourwinds motor home in our driveway, now what do we do? We want to go from Michigan to Colorado Springs in December then after four weeks

Hi. I am a 27 year old, British resident. I am planning a 3 month trip to USA next year, possibly going on to spend 3 on Canada before returning home.

We have so many similar pictures of our time near Taos! We also visited Earthships & I made exact same comment to Joe. I thought if they showed less swirly
Cold and rainy in Taos but we search for and find silver linings.
I didn't think there were any national parks that haven't at least heard of, but this is a new one to me. Bandelier has been on my list for awhile but
Seeing the world as Georgia O'Keeffe did. Ghost Ranch - a wonderful surprise!
It seems to me that curiosity about full-time RVing and the nomadic lifestyle has increased dramatically in the last couple of years. Could it be that with the downturn in the economy there's a loss of faith in more traditional forms of "The American Dream". There certainly seem to be been a number of new TV programs on the topic.
Are you living your nomadic dream? Would you like to be on TV? Here's your opportunity.

My age is playing a bigger factor in our travels than it used to. But not in the way you might think.
