10 Downsides to RV Life

So far we have really enjoyed living in a RV full time. Working on a location independent business and having the ability to travel when and where we want is truly exciting, however, like anything in life, there are downsides to this. From our perspective these are some of the downsides to living in a RV:

  1. Waiting for hot water. You can’t just turn the hot water on and hop in the shower – you have to wait. You also can’t spend a long time taking a shower because the hot water will run out fairly quickly.
  2. Our couch is really only comfortable for one person, which ends up being our dog Lucy, who may not be a person, but certainly sleeps like one.
  3. This is not an issue for me, but my wife tends to hit her head on the slide and cabinets in the kitchen.
  4. Cleaning doesn’t take that long, BUT you have to keep up with it because it does get dirty fast!
  5. When there is rain and thunder it can be very loud in the RV and can sometimes be difficult to sleep.
  6. Things will go wrong and you will have to learn how to make repairs. 
  7. Travel days are stressful; towing, parking, leveling and keeping our pets relaxed during all of it.
  8. You can run a business using wireless internet which is a miracle in itself, however downloading and uploading can be incredibly slow.
  9. You never know who you will be parking next to. RVs have thin walls so noise can become a factor, but the upside with having a RV is that if things are going bad – you can pack up and leave.
  10. Traveling often equals learning new grocery stores. While it can be exciting to experience new stores and see different products, sometimes you just want to get in and get out.

Okay, so that is our list of downsides to full time RV living. Keep in mind that we are still very new to this all. With that said, we love our new lifestyle and have no plans on going back to our old ways. We can’t wait to see more of the United States and grow our business!
