We have been full time RVers for over three years now. Our perpetual travels take us all across the United States and our wanderlust has no limits. However, spending the past month visiting my parents and staying on their property has us thinking – do full time RVers need a home base?

There are definitely a lot of benefits to owning your own land despite being a full time RVer. You would have a familiar place to retreat to during times of uncertainty (like a global pandemic) or if you’re just burnt out on travel and need a break.

However, there is a certain freedom that is lost when becoming a landowner. The first detriment of owning a home base that comes to mind is added financial strain in the purchase, upkeep, and yearly taxation of the land. You would may also feel the need to return regularly to your home base to maintain it or to simply make use of your investment. This could hinder your RV travels and limit the sites you’re able to see.

Check out all the pros and cons to owning a home base as a full time RVer in the video!

    Concerning home base, how do you file your taxes, which state do you file? What address do you use on your tax forms. Where does your mail go? Thanks!

    Seeing you stop at Ritter's brought back a childhood memory of a place called Weber's it was a drive up restaurant and they would come to your car with a tray they were famous for their root beer I'm talkin 1960s. I miss those days by the way Weber's was in Southern New Jersey

    Have you considered adding a 2nd fuel tank under the truck? Would be great for saving to make fuel stops plus when you find a bargain fuel deal you could save a bundle at times.

    That dog isn't playing around at feedin time, you barely set the bowl down and it went straight to work like you might take it away. 10:50

    Someday when we both retire, I’ll travel pulling my 24C more often. For now, we only use it for 2-3 camping days. And I’m gonna pack my bearings as well. 👍👍👍👍👍🤗🤗🤗🤠🇺🇸

    You can buy a good size fan that runs on batteries. Don't the rabbits get hot in the trailer when you're traveling?
    Don't blame you for not wanting a home base. We had and lived in 11 homes and didn't make us happy. Putting up with neighbors getting bored with the same routine, paying high taxes and insurance. Can't really get away in the summer because it cost too much to get someone to mow the grass. Like everyone else we live on a fix income.
    We don't know what the answer is. We are getting back in the RV until we get tired of it and figure it out later. Many blessings 🚌

    P.S. at 10:22 mark, I ran into the kitchen and made tuna salad, then finished the video.

    This was a waste of a half hour. I typically enjoy your videos but you could have said all you needed in 3 min, instead you dragged us across the countryside, staying at the crackel barrel, etc. that all had nothing to do with the real topic. Stay on track.

    The great thing about having a home base is that it's YOUR place to park your stuff. But, the downside is that you will need someone to always look after it, keep it mowed, etc. We have two farms – one in OK and one in TX. We have security cameras set up on the farm in Texas and you wouldn't believe what goes on there when we are gone. We have to have the neighbors check up on it daily when we are traveling.

    Good conversation on having a home base. Actually it’s not so much a need as it is a want. Typical is Less Junk, More Journey who have a place near family in TN who found it so convenient to see family and take care of projects. If you have children it also becomes something to add to the equation. Drivin n Vibin are now off the road as a matter of choice raising their first child. Keep Your Daydream made adjustments so their three children still had the relationship with school friends. Nomadic Fanatic just wanted a place near friends to get off the road. Life is always full of changes and they will surely happen. Having a piece of land somewhere is your being prepared “money in the bank” when you make that decision. LJMJ still travel well with their little ones but still love to come home to see family. Having something gives you options. Average Campers RV Life have a lot in FL they can base when they want. Keep Your Daydream have a place for all of their children to gather for holidays, etc. I had by-pass surgery and thank goodness I had a place to recover in. There are many reasons and money should not be your only part of the equation. You will get older, your life will change inevitably. Just make the jump when you either want it or you want the preparation.

    The benefit of having a home base outweigh the cost of having one. There are plenty of affordable properties around the country to afford one on a tight budget. You need a home base in case of emergencies and reasons regarding major maintenance or modifications to your rig. Furthermore, it gives you a place to reset and sound of mind that you have your own place to go to if things really got bad. Family is great and everything but that mutual understanding of staying at their place may last long but eventually wear out. In addition, you should respect the idea that after a while you really are intruding in their personal space for too long. I cherish the moments of being away from my family but I really cherish the moments when we reunite.
