According to an article on SimplySeniors.com, more and more seniors are choosing to pull up stakes, traveling the country and living out of their RV’s. The reasons that people become fulltimers (the common term for those who live year-round in their RV’s) are as diverse as the people who choose the lifestyle. For some, changes in retirement income options, children and grandchildren who live far away, and the need for mental and physical stimulation are the reasons fulltimers choose this nomadic way of life.

A wonderful element of the RV lifestyle is the RV Clubs in every state in the nation that allow other fulltimers to network and make friends. Some clubs are based on RV makes (Winnebago), nation-wide affiliations (Good Sam) or specialties (handicapped people, military veterans, etc.). These clubs are a wellspring of information on such things as travel information, tips on buying and using an RV, the best places to visit, job opportunities and the personal experiences and observations of other RV’ers.
