What is your exit plan?

Most will not remain in an rv until death, although some do. I read where a lot of folks are selling their SnB to pay for the rv and travel. Right now, before we even get started DW is asking what are we going to do when we are done rving. What plans do you guys have when you are done.

I'm thinking that my small MH will become the mother-in-law cottage on my daughter's property. Put it up on blocks. I know it's pretty Redneck, and it might not happen. That's what I would like to happen. I'm quite fond of this place.

I've lived here longer than anywhere, EVER. I guess I was born a nomad. My dad worked for an oil company and we moved every 3-4 years when I was growing up. At least I don’t have to pack and unpack as much when I move now.

Life is a series of adventures for us. We have not picked the next one yet.

Bad idea! We would have never started this lifestyle if it had required using proceeds from S & B sale to finance it as those funds could be needed for exit when/if you need to. We have been full timing (no S&B or storage) since Sep 2010 and don't dwell on an exit plan.

No exit plan whatsoever. We aren't promised tomorrow - much less next year or 10 years from now. We plan to have fun RVing as long as we possibly can - then we'll face that question/decision when it's time.

Quite the same as living in our home - we never know how long we'll be able to live alone in our S&B. My in-laws were still living alone until six months ago (he's almost 90 and she's 86) - then pretty much within one month their health changed so dramatically they're no longer able to live alone.

Coulda Shoulda Woulda

We decided that life is short and we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Had some friends that waited until retirement to do anything like an RV or to travel. She contracted cancer about a year before retirement and passed before 65. Why wait for "maybe"? We decided that since our health is good and we are still able to do things we would get a Class A and enjoy life. If you sit on your assets until you die, then believe you me, someone else will spend them. Enjoy what you have and do not be scared of what life "might" bring. JMHO.

I was just pricing rv garages the other day wondering if the zoning where my daughter is considering purchasing a house would allow it. The thought was pretty much the same, mother-in-law apartment. Use it as a home base and be more seasonal rvers and spend our time off the road living in the rv in an oversized rv garage in the daughters back yard. I was a little thrown off when her husband suggested it and thought it was a great idea. I thought for sure he would be lukewarm to the inlaws using the backyard as a homebase

Currently working on it. Building s&b in 55 plus community near everything needed for old age living. Will trade stuff storage bill for RV storage bill and make short trips with community RV club and maybe keep our CO. resort spot for summer use. Just reversing process of going fulltime. One more adventure.

Our plan is to part time and keep the homestead. Three out and three in or whatever suits us at the time. Plus throw in a month or two locally as a camp host at the state parks or military CGs.

We currently have a ranch (single story not a "Texas Cattle Ranch") on a low maintenance lot with low taxes and reasonable utilities. Bonas, the mortgage will be paid off next year. Kitchen rework last year, bathrooms the year before and a new roof is in the budget for 2024 so the house will be good to go for a 2026 retirement with our only debt being the coach and toad. Plus the Navigator can't pull herself away from the old neighborhood as long as the two daughters are still in the area.

Out for Ever is our plan

The little Misses and I have lived in the same town for 34 years and the same house for over 21. We couldn't leave and enjoy ourselves worrying about what could be happening behind us. We only want to concern ourselves with what is in front of us.

We're not sure yet and not really going to worry about it either.
