RVer Tips and Concerns
Where Do Fulltimers Get Their Mail?
Amazingly enough, the chief consideration of the fulltime RVer is choosing
a mail forwarding service. It establishes where you’re going to
have to be “domiciled,” and is a crucially essential consideration.
Don’t even think about having family or friends forward your mail;
it’s a lot of work when you’re not set up to do it, and
it’s a big commitment to ask of someone.
How RVers Do Their Banking
The easiest solution is to consolidate all your financial dealings with
one bank or institution that offers Internet banking. Charge everything
possible, including calling cards, fuel, campgrounds, groceries, entertainment,
tours and restaurants. At the end of the month, simply pay off the charges
incurred during the previous month. You can use ATM’s for depositing
and withdrawing cash.
Getting To The Dentist
Touring and being away from a “regular” doctor or dentist
causes some of us a little unease, especially now that so many of us
are rightly concerned about our health. Keep a copy of your medical
records and other pertinent information with you in your rig. Get your
current dental X-ray records from your dentist. That way, if you need
to visit a new dentist on the road, you won’t need to pay good
money for what you already have.
Everyday Housekeeping for Their Rig
Full timers call the RV their only home. They may stay in one place
for extended periods or wander from one destination to another. The
everyday behavior of a full timer is no different from someone living
in a house. All household and everyday sanitation tasks must be attended
to. Full timer RVs must be sturdy enough to endure continuous habitation.
RV Closet Space!
Closet Space Selecting a rig is like shopping for a new house. Nothing
beats doing a tour of the models, especially at a big show, with lots
of brands represented. There are two predominant floor plans available,
with slight variations: rear kitchen and rear lounge models. Closet
space is critically important, particularly for the working full timer.
When You Go Fulltime, What Do You Do With Your Stuff?
One of the most frequently asked questions by persons considering the
full time lifestyle is: what will I do with all my stuff? Some of the
options are storage, giving it to family and friends, giving it to charity,
selling it, or a mix of all these choices. No matter what you do with
most of your stuff, there will certainly be a few things you’ll
Storage, Damage, Insurance and Warranties
The exceptional character of the full timing way of life is gaining
more interest every year. In case your motorhome gets damaged, make
sure you get RV-specific insurance that takes into account the fact
that you have lost not only your chief form of transport, but you have
also been forced out of your home. Because most full timers store belongings
while out on the road, a specialty RV policy can expand your coverage
to include items kept in storage.
