I've been lurking on this thread for a while.
I'm a SAHM, my income is guaranteed to follow me
But it would be just myself and my DD, who is currently 2yo. Her father is not in her life so that is not a concern.
I'm wondering what are the expenses (approx. monthly) associated with this lifestyle, minus any purchasing/payments associated with the RV itself.
What is the average cost (monthly/yearly) with repairs, food, campgrounds, gas, misc. that you spend and what type of RV do you have? I think since it is just DD and I that a Class B would be plenty. I've camped a fair amount in tents and love that lifestyle. Would you think it safe for a single parent, especially a woman? I have a fair amount of handiness skills of my own, though not really mechanical beyond oil changing (which is something I'd rather not do myself anyway.) We are planning on unschooling and literally have family coast to coast (and in between) that we could routinely visit.
I'm in the long term planning stage and trying to decide if it would be the right thing for DD and I. Right now the financial aspect seems the most important because if I can have a good grasp on that I think everything else will fall into place.
Thanks for any advice. You are all living a dream to me and I'd love to be able to do the same and share it with my DD.
