You're probably right, because that is not even counting the RV park hookup fees, which can run about $35 a day or over $900 per month. Even without hooking up to an RV park, then you need to find a safe place to park, still need to find water, a place to dump, gas, propane, as you said.binocular wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 3:09 pmYou still have to pay for the gasoline, the propane, the water, the batteries, and you have to dump your waste water and your garbage somewhere (so that someone else pays for them?).
I haven't researched this in detail, but roughly, it seems that it would be cheaper to pay for the kitchen gas, electricity, and water in an ordinary house or apartment, than to buy them in relatively small amounts for the RV.
An RV can run without being plugged into electricity with the use of a generator, but that costs money too, with either propane or diesel. I think it might be one of those things that sounds great and idealistic in theory, but in practice, not very economical after all. I never tried full-time living in an RV, but my wife and I did own an RV (for short, one week trips) in the past and after we calculated all the costs (the vehicle, the gas, propane, etc) and then even subtracted what we sold it for, it still came out to being more expensive than had we just gone to a 5-star hotel.
