Why I Have Been RVing For 40 Years

by Don & Kathy

This story was submitted on our Why Do You Love RVing Page

I love the lifestyle and have done everything I can to stay in it. When I was younger and had to work, I sold and repaired RVs and traveled with the Snowbirds. Florida in the winter and Seattle in the summer. I was always able to find seasonal work and did make a good living doing it.

I started when I was 20 and knew it was for me and later for me and my wife. Raising 2 kids slowed us down a little but we still managed to travel.

Now I am retired in Southern California, well we still love it. I do RV repair on the side and it actually keeps me busier than I would like but what the heck, it's extra money.

Now I am retired we no longer travel 8,000 miles a year hauling some 40' 5th Wheel and that makes it easier on this old man.

I guess once it is your blood it stays there.

The only sad part to me is all the different companies that made RVs and how they have gone broke, soooo... sad

Well, enjoy your RV and no matter what you travel in, just enjoy the happy times you spend with your family, I do!!!

My wife and I feel the same... but, we only have about 5 years of RVing.

We love it. And, can't wait to figure out where we will be going/living next.
