As you make decisions about your future life, you have learned that bigger does not always equate with better.
A home can be stressful to care for, expensive, and the upkeep can be incredibly time-consuming.
Downsizing to an RV is a great way to save you money, time, stress and so much more. Here are just a few of the benefits that come from downsizing.
One of the more immediate effects of downsizing to your RV is a serious reduction in stress. Less space means fewer things to worry about breaking, going missing or needing to be replaced.
And who needs stress on vacations anyway?
Take a look at how much space you really need and how much is being wasted in your current location. Consider a model with fewer bedrooms, electronics and square footage, and then look around your city for smaller models that can still suit your needs.
Consider what items you really need and care about to have. Large RVs are designed for a maximum of 400 square feet. so you’ll want to make value judgments. This can be one of the hardest parts of downsizing, but you’ll feel so much better about things.
As you’re shopping for an RV, be sure to talk to the seller about what kind of repairs would need to be made and how much upkeep is required to ensure it’s a worthy investment.
As you shop around, it’ll become immediately clear that downsizing will save you thousands. Your monthly RV payment compared to your monthly mortgage or rent will be smaller, your insurance rates will likely decrease and your overall maintenance expenses will shrink, as well.
But be smart about downsizing. Ask what the listed price does and doesn’t include. Remember to factor in any necessary repairs and replacements. And always, always have a trusted mechanic perform an inspection before making a purchase.
And before you sign anything, talk to your preferred financial institution about RV loan rates. You should look for flexible financing options and fixed interest rates.
Your bank account isn’t the only thing that could benefit from a downsize. Your free time should also be considered.
How many hours have you spent cleaning your house? We’re betting that, if you were to add them all up, you’d be looking at days each year. Maybe even weeks!
Those days could be spent traveling!
Downsizing to an RV that better suits your needs will prevent you from wasting any more time wiping down that counter you never use or sweeping out the closet that you only fill because you can, which leads us to our final point.
Downsizing — which, in a way, can be looked at as an upgrade — means you get more time to do the things you love.
Gone are the days spent stressing, spending, and cleaning. Instead, you can pack up and hit the road knowing you’re in the best RV for your situation.
You and your loved ones deserve an RV that makes all of you happy and lets you spend more days driving than stressing, budgeting, or cleaning.
