To have a full-time living, the first thing you need to do is get your priorities in order, especially when packing and unpacking everything. This seems simple enough, but when it comes to packing and unpacking, you will find that it is quite a task.
Tips To Pack And Unpack
The first thing you need to do when planning your full-time RV travel is to plan. Have a clear destination in mind, where you want to be at a certain time. Rvtravel.com has some great tips. When packing, be sure to include all the items you will need to reach that destination, as well as the vehicle you will be driving to get there. If you know exactly what you need to bring to make your stay comfortable, then your packing will go much smoother.
When unpacking, consider packing the essentials first. Clothes, shoes, toiletries, a sleeping bag, and some kitchen supplies are the most important things you need to take with you. Your RV may come with a lot of equipment, but you may still need to rent some other equipment for doing jobs around the campground, like renting canoes or buying firewood. If you are taking your equipment, be sure to label the containers so you know what you are taking for each job and what is left in the container for future use.
Another way to prepare for your full-time RVing is to sign up for some jobs at local campgrounds. There are opportunities for full-time workers to earn a few hundred dollars a week for doing basic tasks like cleaning and bringing meals to camp. The pay is not enough to live on, so you have to work in shifts and accept food from the owners. If you can find camping jobs, it would be worth signing up for several of them to make ends meet.
If you can, try to live near some of the large cities near your campsite so you can quickly go to the nearest RV dealership and look through the help wanted ads. Most of the dealerships have lists of campgrounds that may be hiring in the area.
Since your full-time RV lifestyle will most likely involve you traveling a great deal, it is a good idea to invest in a travel journal. Write down everything you do for your full-time RV, as well as every trip you make. Include pictures of any activities you did while you were living in a camper/van. This could consist of camping trips to parks and beaches, hiking trips, riding, swimming, boating, driving around anywhere you can think of, or even visiting your dentist! A travel journal is a great way to memorialize your full-time or lifestyle.
You’ll never be able to have a perfect full-time RV traveling life if you don’t take the time to do all of the necessary planning. The best advice I can give you is to get started as soon as possible. Start working on a detailed plan for working while on the road. There are more remote working positions than ever since COVID. You don’t need to work at campgrounds – you can make a living from anywhere. If you do this, you should have nothing but great fun for many years to come!
