Question Fulltiming Budget?

I was wondering how those who fulltime or who have fulltimed at one point. How did you go about establishing a fulltiming budget? What did you do to save money while traveling? Do you have any tips on how you save?

Hey Nara,

Here are some basics to consider when planning a budget for fulltiming.

  • The purchase and upkeep of your coach and your tow vehicle.
  • Fuel
  • Park and/or parking - often including hookups/utilities/cable/Internet etc.
  • Insurance/Prescriptions/Meds
  • Food
  • Entertainment
  • Maintenance
  • Mail forwarding
  • Emergencies
  • Miscellaneous

You won't really know what kind of budget you will have until you are actually on the road and fulltiming. (Everyone's different) But it's always a good idea to get some sort of list established. You can get a pretty good idea of what it will be but remember, like I say once on the road some numbers will change a bit. Good luck!

Nara, you may want to head over to the Escapees forum and check some of their members blogs. There are some pretty detailed budgets that folks have posted, most seem to run from 3k to 4k a month depending on how much you move and how you eat and drink. This is one example I've found.
