Age and RVing
Biggest issue in any "retirement" is trying to anticipate how your health and finances will "age" as you age. My wife and I decided on a "life care community" retirement center in Texas, moved in while we were still in good health. But kept our two RVs, one a 5th wheel and one a truck camper. One truck is used for both. We keep the camper in the RV lot at the retirement community, and store the 5th wheel at an army base in Arizona. We mostly use the 5th wheel for volunteer work at an Arizona state park. The camper is used for longer trips - Alaska, etc. We expect to keep up the volunteer work for several more years, but I'm also expecting I may need to have someone move the 5th wheel for me at some point. And I now do very little of the "crawl under" repairs of RV or truck. We've also had "The Talk" and agreed that either of us can say "stop" and we'll give up the RVs. We did look hard at "full time" RV life, but we'd seen too many friends have real issues when one became ill or died and there was no "home". Living in the retirement community has given us that "home" base without all the "ownership and repair issues." Not for everyone, but worth considering if you want to continue to travel as long as possible. Also recommend having good RV emergency policy (for repairs and return of you if RV can't be fixed) and a "travel health insurance - get you home from anywhere in the world by air" policy. Suggest talking to everyone you meet while RVing too. Many have been "through it" and have good advice. Best wishes for a great retirement.
