I have been thinking back on my plans to move into an RV by the end of Aug. I have so many questions I need to work on answering..
So… since my internet outage, I have been wondering how people living in rvs have internet. How they keep it when they move constantly? How much does it cost to have portable internet? Am I going to have to raise my monthly basic living expenses up? I want to make sure I take all of this into account when I start making plans on moving Best reference I have seen so far has lead me to believe the best option for me would be a hot spot. I want internet but don’t need jet speed fast internet (since I grew up with dial up). My concern is that I won’t be able to get internet each night. So the question becomes, do I really need internet each night? If I don’t, can I just exists off of the free WiFi that is so prevalent in the city.. or am I in need of my own WiFi for feeling like I am living a normal life.
There’s a big difference between a 27 ft trailer and a 17 ft trailer. I keep thinking the space would be wonderful but when I do the walk through I noticed that the larger trailers seem to loose space by adding bunk beds and walls. I don’t really need the extra beds or the dividers. I need a place to sleep but it can be in the main room. I want a door on the restroom cause.. yeah.. I would like a place to mount my monitor. I do need places to put my clothing that I keep. So some sort of closet or under the bed storage would be nice.
If the intent is still to be able to move around in the summer, I will need to replace my little geo metro. This would be the first time I would be taking such a big loss on a car. I try to make my car count for $1500 at most a year. With costs of purchase and repair, I should be driving the Geo for one more year. That means I will need to make the next car count for that year. To top that off, I need that car to be able to haul around a trailer of uncertain size and weight. It makes it hard to shop for a car.
Where to park
I want to be near my work place but ideally I can find a trailer park for older retired people. There is also a chance I can find a place that gives me a price break over the summer to be there for is someone has questions or emergencies. I also don’t want to live so close to work that I share a lot with students. I am not always Ms. Teacher and in my line of work, I can be let go on “moral grounds” if someone sees me drinking in the wrong place. Dumb but true.
And every time I turn around, I am thinking of more questions all while trying to clean my apartment. This is going to work.. right? It’s gotta work. I will enjoy this process and move. It’s like vegetables. Good for me but might take a bit to get used to the taste.
Any words of advice guys? Is this a crazy thing to do? Maybe I’m just second guessing myself..
