How to Live in an RV

Does the thrill of the open road tempt you to live full-time in your RV? Well, you can!


  • TIP: Make your new RV life a way to stay in touch by taking it to see family and friends across the country.
  • Step 1: Make a home base somewhere, for things like visiting the doctor, voting, and getting your mail. But with your RV home, you don't have to stay in one place for long.
  • FACT: The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, or ARVC, is made up of over 3,700 parks and campgrounds in the United States.
  • Step 2: Figure out how to stay connected. There are ways to get internet access on the road, and satellite television is popular among RVers.
  • Step 3: Allocate funds for maintenance on your RV over time. If you plan to travel in the RV, you will need to treat it like a car and get it serviced regularly.
  • Step 4: Use space wisely, as you don't have much of it. Hanging things on hooks can keep things in their place without taking up too much space.
  • TIP: Try hanging picture frames on cabinet doors to save shelf space.
  • Step 5: Be certain that living in an RV is right for you. It is a drastically different lifestyle than living in a home.
