Buying an RV is a great way to set yourself up for an enjoyable retirement. There are lots of good reasons to own an RV, and even more to retire in one. But what should you know about buying an RV in retirement?

The type of RV you need

One of the most important decisions to make when buying an RV is picking which type of RV you need. Should you get a pop-up camper, a travel trailer, or a fifth-wheel trailer? RVs come in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll need to take a close look at your intended lifestyle and budget before finding the RV that best suits your needs.

The benefits of an RV in retirement

There are lots of perks to having an RV, especially if you plan to sell your home and live in one full-time. RVs help you downsize and make your hard-earned retirement funds go further. With an RV, you’ll also be able to see your family more often and visit the parts of the country — and beyond — that you’ve always wanted to see, at your leisure.

Road Trip Games to Play in the RV

RVs are great for exploring new destinations and taking in sites you’ve never seen before, but the drive between destinations can sometimes be a drag. Help the time go by faster by playing these road trip games with the family.

 

Alphabet game

Players of this game must search the roads for words that start with the letters of the alphabet. Beginning with the letter “A,” whoever spots a word starting with “A” can move on to the letter “B,” while the other players stay focused on “A.” Players continue down the alphabet, until someone finds a “Z” word and subsequently wins the game

 

Cow in the cemetery game 

Divide the RV into two teams and assign each the left or right windows. Each team must count as many cows as they can with the goal being to count more cows than the other team. If you pass a cemetery on your side, all previously counted cows no longer count, and you must start from zero. This game can be played in areas without cows by counting a different animal or object.

 

One-word stories

Challenge your family to tell a story. The catch is that this story can only be told one word at a time. Each player says one word, building upon each other’s words to create sentences. This usually leads to lots of silly stories and laughs all around.

 

We at Hanner RV wish your family a safe and entertaining road trip in your RV. Before heading out on the road, stop by our service department for maintenance.
