A reader recently asked me why I haven't put a monthly expense post on my blog lately, and the answer is fairly simple. Living in my daughter's driveway for the summer like I do would in no way relate to anyone else's normal full-time RVing expenses. And therefore wouldn't be of any benefit to anyone trying to determine what it cost to live full-time in an RV.
In the summer my expenses vary wildly. I tend to buy more things from Amazon than I do the rest of the year because in Denver Amazon delivers multiple times a day so I can get things very quickly, sometimes almost as quick as driving to the store and buying it.
My grocery expenses are nowhere near normal because I frequently eat at my daughter's house, where healthier food is prepared, and its free.
If I need any medical things done, like new glasses, or a checkup, I wait until summer and do that when I'm in Denver. Denver being a big city gives me far more options than the small towns I prefer to be in during the winter. And since some of those expenses are covered by Medicare, which is the only insurance I have, they probably wouldn't relate to anyone considering full-timing either.
And of course I have the expenses of my mini-vacations which I imagine wouldn't apply to anyone else's full-time lifestyle.
So all things considered I try to give folks monthly expenses that would apply to the average full timer that boondocks a lot, and my summer expenses, I believe, are too far out of the fulltimer norm to be of use to anyone.
