How much will it cost for you to travel full-time in your RV?

Stephanie Bernhagen prepared this comprehensive worksheet to include in her book Take Back Your Life! Travel Full-Time in an RV (no longer in print). In it she identified sixteen expense categories and several one-time expenses (such as purchasing your RV).

Completing this worksheet will enable you to have a rough idea of what full-time RVing will cost. For RV insurance, you can get quotes online at the major RV insurance providers:

RV Insurance Professionals will give you quotes from multiple insurance companies by entering your data once.

You may be able to get a discount on your RV insurance through an RV club like Good Sam, Family Motorcoaching (FMCA) or the Escapees RV Club.

Support Your RV Lifestyle! An Insider's Guide to Working on the Road by Jaimie Hall has a chapter, "How much do you need?" that explores this topic too.
