Are you looking for freedom or a change?

The RV lifestyle may be a way to be free of your old lifestyle, but is it for you? Let it be known, it is not for everyone.

There are many articles about the RV lifestyle on the Internet. All you have to do is run a search. It does not matter whether you are looking to take an RV vacation or running away. It is suggested that you try it on in smaller does than quitting your job and life. There's loads of information out there to let you learn if this is the life for you.

This is the first of several articles about RV-ing. Checkout the slideshow for a short trip from Albuquerque to Tucson to see if you are a potential RV-er.

This RV-er retired at age 52 and hit the road. At first it was like most people think, a constant move from one vacation spot to another, staying only a few days at each. As time wore on and gas prices went this RV-er started staying longer and longer. Now she like many others in their sixties stays for approximately six months in some cooler city during the summer and Tucson or Yuma during the winter months.

RV-ers who travel like this keep a calendar of chores and maintenance that fills many days of the month. The generator needs to be run once a week to keep it lubricated and in good working order. The batteries for the rig and the engine are checked often and toped off with distilled water.

This RV-er never fills up her water tanks nor using the shower. Why not? You don't want to drive with the extra weight and once you use the tanks they have to be cleaned out with a chlorine solution. And, on and on it goes.... Do you want these concerns?
