RV Motor Home – Can You Really Be Care Free While Living In One?

By Micheal Webb

Have you ever thought what it would be like to live in a motor home permanently? When we see on TV the bright and happy looking gorgeous young people who live in motor homes, we keep thinking how wonderfully carefree they are and what a lovely time they must be having with no worries and being able to travel wherever they want to. In the ads of course motor home families have such fun in beautiful weather; sunshine filling their days and warm breezy star lit nights adding romance and excitement to their lives. But is that how it is when you really have to live in a RV motor home full-time?

If you ever thought that living in a RV motor home will bring down your cost of living, you are sadly mistaken. Even if you are not living in an expensive brick and mortar home, you still have to pay for electricity, maintenance of your motor home plus the insurance for it which will add up to quite a big sum even without you realizing it. You will have to buy your groceries from whatever store you come across and most probably stock up not knowing where you will be able to buy the stuff next. What will you do when it rains cats and dogs and there’s nothing for you to do inside your motor home. Playing indoor games and spending quality time with each other is fine. But for how long can you do it before it becomes a tad too boring?

No matter how care free it would be living in a RV motor home, you still have to attend to your daily chores such as cooking, cleaning and washing, all of which has to be carried out in a minimal space. The advertisements we see on TV makes it look so exciting with beautiful young people having the time of their lives, having camped in a ground all by themselves. You can see them enjoying life to the fullest with sunshine every day and enchanting summer nights that makes you want to get into your own motor home and drive away into the night. The reality however, is that it rains at times, the camping ground gets muddy and you have to share it with more than 100 motor homes that must have had the same bright ideas as you.

Those colorful brochures did show misty mountains in the background. What really happens when it rains and snows, create quite a different picture. You will feel claustrophobic, stuck inside your motor home hours on end with the rain and thunder sounding frighteningly close at hand. Another thing: no matter how much you love your partner, being in close proximity with no quality time for yourself can become stressful. Even worse, you dare not argue because your neighbors in the motor home next to you can hear everything you say, the same as you do when their music is too loud or their baby is screaming. A day will come when you both get on each others nerves and wish you could be somewhere else, but unfortunately you cannot.

Living in a RV motor home can be a great experience if you are not expecting things to be exactly as they show in their advertisements. The reality might be that there will be rain every day of your holiday or if lucky, you might have had sunshiny days with blue skies and starry nights just as they said it would. While a RV motor home is ideal for the young to spend a vacation, the more settled and older people might find living in a RV motor home on a full time basis rather tedious and uncomfortable.

There are many reasons to go with an RV motor home, from cost to variety selection, to licensing requirements:
