Some of these really brought back memories for me. Here are three stories of people who quit their jobs to full time in an RV. There are some interesting parallels between their situations and ours.
First, all these people prepared a long time. This was no spur of the moment decision. All of them also had a supportive partner. I had to drag my wife, kicking and screaming, into the RV lifestyle and she never did enjoy it as much. I did all the planning and saving for our transition and she was mortified when I quit my job.
I still remember the day I quit my job. It was a well-paying but soul-sucking job that I dreaded every day. After leaving I felt like a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders…then the economy collapsed.
Stress is common theme among younger RV full timers. Even jobs that don’t need to be stressful can be spoiled by one bad supervisor.
With this couple his wife was encouraging him to quit his job so they could hit the road.
I know just how this guy felt every day.
This couple did it right when it came to unloading their stuff. They saved, set goals and stuck to a schedule. Then they auctioned off all their belongings. That’s the right way to do it.
