Why We Chose Full-Time RVing

When we first started talking, one thing that really sparked our interest in each other was that we both grew up camping. We quickly discovered that we both camped at the same campground every summer ↠ Lakewood Camping Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC! We can both agree that after finding out we had this in common, our relationship took off. Fast forward two years and we got married in that same campground on the beach.

We always talked about owning our own RV someday and traveling with our own family. We never thought we could be "full-timers" because we owned a house and had permanent jobs as nurses. After starting our career, we learned about travel nursing. You don't have to have any other qualifications to be a travel nurse in comparison to a staff nurse. All you need is experience, confidence, and flexibility. Travel nurses are used to temporarily fill the nursing void while the hospital recruits and trains permanent staff for the job.

Once we decided to give travel nursing a try, we decided that purchasing an RV was the only thing that made sense to us. We didn't want to live out of suitcases and move in and out of hotels or apartments every three months. Since we already knew we wanted an RV, we determined that there was no better way to travel than taking our home with us wherever we went! We both already had experience with traveling in RVs and had even taken Chase's parents' pop-up trailer out a few times. We loved it and were excited to finally have our own.

We did tons of research on different types of campers and toured as many as possible. We finally decided on our 30 ft travel trailer that checked off all of our needs and over 90% of our wants. Searching for the perfect RV takes time - you can refer to our previous post for tips on finding the right RV for me. Our RV is perfect for us and our camping kitty. We love the privacy of being in our own home and having our space and yard opposed to a hotel or apartment where you are trapped inside. We have full access to the amenities at our RV resorts. One campground had a natural Florida spring in the middle of it and our current RV resort has a swimming pool, hot tub, and live music on weekends. We get to be apart of a community and can connect with other RVers and full-timers and exchange stories and tips along the way. This is why we chose full-time RVing.
