So, you work for decades and then you reach the age of retirement. Now what? You ain’t going to just sit back and let the cobwebs grow around you, are you?

A Mobile Retirement Living in an RV

A campervan or RV retirement sounds like a fantastic way to live out your golden years, doesn’t it? Can you imagine waking up early, err at midday, and then deciding whether to spend that day where you are or hitting the road?

This is the kind of giddy excitement that you might not expect to have at this stage of life but wouldn’t it fantastic? Indeed it would.

If you like the idea of living in an RV when retired then the first thing you need is, well, an RV probably. If you have a house to sell with some equity in it then you should be able to afford a decent campervan.

Living this kind of retirement isn’t free, of course. Jeez, if it was then most of us would all be rolling along in our campervans and laughing at the suckers who still had to work for a living and pay for stuff.

In fact, living in an RV can be cheaper or more expensive than living in a house, depending upon – shock – what you do.

This means that it is probably one of the more affordable retirement ideas, as long as you don’t plan to take a luxury campervan round the whole world with you.

This video talks about the cost of this kind of retirement.
