Today I'm wondering what this is all about...RVing full time, that is. I have my heart set on a motorhome (the one pictured above) because of the great floor plan. However, the thought of driving a Class A puts terror in my heart. Why would I have my heart set on something that scares me so much? Am I trying to sabotage myself before I even get started?
I must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning because I'm not able to think about a single positive thing about full timing. Why would I want to leave this house I've spent so much time fixing up? I think part of the answer is fear. I know what to expect from my life right now. It's predictable...and boring.
If I live as long as my dad did I have 29 more years to live. I'm a lot healthier than he was so maybe I have more years...or less, who knows? So I ask myself, do you want to spend the next 29 years in the same house doing essentially the same thing every day to get through the day? My answer is a resounding NO.
OK, let's look at the big picture...reasons for and against a motorhome:
Reasons to buy a motorhome:
1. I don't know when/if the blankets were washed at the hotel(s).
2. I can drink as much water as I want because the bathroom is nearby.
3. Life won't be predictable and boring.
4. I'll meet lots of new people, online and on the road.
5. If I don't like where I'm at I can go find another place.
6. It will add excitement to my life.
7. I can get away from the traffic noise where I'm living now.
Reasons not to buy a motorhome:
1. Fear of driving.
2. Possible loneliness while on the road.
4. Feeling stuck is actually OK no matter what anyone says.
6. I was braver when my son was along the first time and now I'm alone.
Questions and/or Concerns:
1. Should I tow my SX90 SUV or store it somewhere?
2. Do I want to store my SUV?
3. Should I look at Class C's instead of Class A's?
4. Should I get another fifth wheel?
5. Do I want to full time?
6. Do I want to stay stuck?
I'm feeling nervous about posting this. But I believe that I'll get responses back from people who dealt with the same fears and overcame them. If I don't talk, or in this case, write about the fears, I think they'll just get bigger and bigger and paralyze me into doing nothing. That's not OK.
