Why I Live in an RV

Since I was a child, I'd often fantasized about living in an RV and traveling the country. I think many people have that idea at some point in their life. It's not something I thought about every day and I never thought I'd actually do it. In fact, I'm sure there are many people out there that have been dreaming of full-time travel for years and are still in a sticks and bricks house dreaming about it. Perhaps you are one of them.
