3 Things You May Not Know About RV Living

Whether you're looking to become a 'full timer,' or you're ready to experience longer road trips in your rig, living in an RV for any period of time can seem pretty idyllic. We're also a little biased – we think it's pretty great! But, there are things to know before you switch out your living situation that people won't always tell you.

It's not like there are dozens of secrets to be kept about RV living. But, some things might surprise you. This includes a few stigmas that go along with the lifestyle. Let's take a look at a few things you may not know about RV living, so you can be better prepared before you hit the road.

1. You Can Have Amazing Meals

This knowledge will come in handy when you're tired of hitting up fast food joints or heating up microwavable meals.There can be a bit of initial fear that goes with using an RV kitchen. This is especially true if you've never used an oven powered by propane. Getting over that fear can take a bit of courage at first, but don't dismiss your kitchen! It may be small, but you can produce some mighty meals out of it with a little bit of cooking know-how and patience.

2. You Can Have Decorations

If you've heard horror stories of things like plants and décor getting jostled around inside an RV, try to shrug them off. Most rigs are far more luxurious and offer a more comfortable ride than ever nowadays. Plants and decorations should be a part of your space. They will make your RV feel more like home.

If you do notice some pieces get jostled around, try securing them with Museum Putty or something similar. It will hold them securely in place without damaging furniture or walls.

3. Your RV Can Look More Like Home Than You Think

There is a major difference between using your RV for road trips and camping, and actually using it as your living space. When you're ready to make the switch to actually living on your RV, take the time to make it look like a home.

Thanks to different types of furniture, décor options, and advancements in technology your rig doesn't need to look like a run-of-the-mill RV on the inside. In fact, if you leave it 'as is,' you're probably going to get bored with your living situation fairly quickly.

Paint the surfaces, add the furniture you want, and really work to turn your RV into a home. The sky is the limit when it comes to the customization options you can put into place.

Getting over some common misconceptions about RV living can make the experience far better for you and your family. Does it take some getting used to? Absolutely. It can also be a bit scary at first. But, once you overcome those fears and decide that you're ready to turn your rig into a home, it's a unique and fun lifestyle you'll love.
