Have you considered living off the grid in your RV? I’ve been full-time RVing for the past 7 years. I split my time between long term stays in RV parks and living off the grid in my RV as a nomad wandering with the weather. If you’ll be staying in one place for at least 6 months at a time, then living off the grid (boondocking) is an option that you might want to consider. I’ve put together this helpful guide to give you an idea of what to expect in the way of living expenses and overall comfort when living off the grid in an RV, compared to on-grid RV living. See the costs and comforts associated with both on- and off-grid RV camping.
