What does it cost to full-time RV? Many people are curious about this. All I can say is that it depends. Your cost for food would be the same as it is now unless you start eating in restaurants more often and varies by individual. I will share with you here what we pay for lodging and for fuel. Of course we move around a lot so our fuel will be a lot and we only get about 7.5 miles per gallon of gas with this motorhome.
We try to go on the cheap, finding free places to park whenever possible, which means frequent Walmart parking lots and some boondocking out in the desert. State Parks and National Parks are usually very low priced places to stay. Passport America is a membership discount program that allows us to stay half price at many participating RV parks, it cost only $44/year and has saved us a lot of money. In 2014 we joined the Escapees RV Club which is another big cost saver for us.
