How to Save Money While RVing

Living in an RV is a GOOD way to save money, but not a GREAT way.

Don’t get me wrong, we absolutely love living small and eliminating a house payment does free up extra cash. On the flip side, if you are RV living and traveling, there is some cost involved. Cost of fuel, lodging, maintenance, did I mention maintenance? The payoff in return is adventure, freedom, and lots of family memories money can not buy.

With the RV lifestyle, I have always heard the expression you can spend as little or as much as your budget would allow. Just like living in a sticks and brick home, there are many different ranges of investments. It seems to be an eye-opener to fulltime RVers how expensive this lifestyle can be.

Here are 5 tips that may help you save some money as you hit the road:

Eat at Home

Trying authentic and local restaurants is one the best highlights of traveling the country. New York pizza, New Orleans jumbalya, and a Texas hamburger on a donut bun! I know you didn’t expect that last one, but Gordough’s in Austin Texas still remains to be one of our favorite restaurants in almost 2 years of travel. Unbelievably good!
