No Steve / Corrie - you're not getting on our nerves. We actually enjoy answering questions from new RVers - it brings back memories of our first days. As for money - I don't use a budget - just print up more as I go along. I quit fretting over prices a year and a half ago when I was buying gas in Canada for $5.45 US a gallon. Keep in mind I'm not a full-timer, so maybe some of our forum members who are can give you a better answer. And like I said - keep the questions coming - we'll try to provide answers.
Well one must start with the same thing everyone needs. Medical insurance, $500-$1000 per month plus meds, car motor home insurance, $100 a month, Food, $200-$600 per month here I count all the stuff we buy at the grocery store, eating out, to each his own. We spend $300 to $800 per month on RV parks sometimes more(by the month can be a lot cheaper) and we do boondock about 1/2 the time. Fuel $400-$500 per 1000 miles. Clothing I'm cheap the wife well****. Then $500 plus a bit for maintenance on the RV and towed or tow rig. Now the cost of recreation parks, movies, art shows, this can get expensive or can be no cost. Personal costs, hair cut, nails done(you get the idea). BEER WINE ?????? Fishing Hunting Golf Tennis seems anything you do today takes a fee or license. And there are more, maybe I have sparked thought from others.
