Exploring Modern Nomads: Full-time RV Living

By Out-of-Doors Mart on November 7th, 2019 in RV

Open road lifestyle Nomads are people who move from place to place without a permanent home. The term throughout history has evolved to describe a group of people who constantly travel. Modern nomads are the new iteration of this concept. They travel in RVs and work remotely or find work as they need it along the way. If this type of lifestyle appeals to you, save money by purchasing reliable used RVs in Greensboro and start your journey. 

Full-time RVers have chosen this lifestyle because it brings them joy. Still, have questions? If you’re interested in trying the modern nomad lifestyle or you’re a skeptic, here are some of the most common questions answered. 

What do you do with all your stuff?

The desire for a minimalist life is a driving force behind the modern nomad. They’re tired of the endless cycle of working to make money to buy stuff. Nomads either sell or put into storage the non-essentials of life. They travel light and prefer it that way. 

Can you do it with kids? How do they get an education?

Modern nomads will argue that life out on the road is a much more enriching learning experience for kids than school could ever be. Forget classrooms where you learn about reading, math, science, and social studies from a book. Nomad kids are out living life and learning it all as they go. Some nomad parents homeschool their kids and others learn online through video tutors when Wi-Fi is available. 

How do you live in such close quarters? Can you do it with a big family?

Families of all sizes live full time in RVs and manage just fine. The size of your RV determines if there’s enough space for everyone or at the very least, enough beds. Many couples say their marriages are healthier and that they feel closer to their spouse and children than ever before. RV living promotes family togetherness. It also encourages everyone to spend more time outdoors. The weather is not always perfect, but you bundle up or wear your raincoat and you get outside anyway. The whole family naturally lives a more active lifestyle.

What do you do for work? Do you have to be retired to live in an RV full time?

Many modern nomads are retired, but many others are in their 20s, 30s, 40s, or even 50s. Some people work remotely and others just pick up odd jobs along the way. The cost of living in an RV is so much lower than owning a permanent residence that RVers don’t need to earn as high of an income in most cases. People can get a job in one location, then pick up and move on when they’ve earned enough for their next excursion. 

Find Quality Used RVs in Greensboro at Out of Doors Mart

Pulling up roots and taking off in an RV can be even easier and more affordable when you purchase a used RV. Used RVs in Greensboro cost significantly less because of the speed at which new RVs depreciate in value, similar to new cars.
