Some like the comfort of big rigs, some like the agility of small rigs. Some are in motion all year long, some are stationary all year long. Some enjoy the boonies and being off-grid, and some enjoy resorts with all the amenities.
Some RV for a reason.
Some RV because they have no better choice.
For some, RVing is the reason
Some would rather go and sight-see, some would rather stay at camp. Some plan their route extensively, some make it up as they go. Some want to build a social network as they travel, and some want to keep to themselves.
Some work because they have to.
Some work because they want to.
Some volunteer because they feel called to.
Some keep their travel days short, some make as much distance as they can in a day. Some spend more time indoors, some spend more time outdoors. Some explore all corners of the country, and some explore in one corner.
Some would be considered old.
Some would be considered young.
Many would consider themselves young at heart.
Some prefer the country, some prefer cities. Some have minimalistic camps, some have elaborate camps. Some expect to be on the road as long as they’re able, and some expect to be off the road at a certain date.
Some travel with a partner.
Some travel with a friend.
Some travel with children.
Some travel with pets.
Some travel alone.
Some travel in a caravan.
Most do not fall completely in one category, and that’s part of the beauty of this lifestyle. How boring happy hour or stories around the campfire would be if every story was the same. Not everyone has the same resources at their disposal, or the inclination to travel a certain way. There is no need to belittle or look down on another full-timer because they’ve chosen to do it differently. You do not need to agree with another person to treat them with respect.
There is no hard definition for this lifestyle, nor should there be.
