RVs & Walmart

MSNBC talks about RVers using Walmart parking lots instead of RV parks in order to save a few bucks. (Well, they claim it isn’t a money issue, but come on – why else would you go without electricity and water to save $25?) The article mentions the film This is Nowhere, which might get added to my movie list. The question is, is RVing minimalist or not? On the one hand, these things are gas guzzling, road-hogging monsters. On the other, living in one certainly forces you to pare down belongings. Thoughts?

    I love them- I want to live in one- I just don’t know if paying over 75k is worth it. I guess I need to rent one to see if I can do it.
    But it would be fun! Gas WOULD suk!

    Well… it depends. RVs CAN be minimalist, or they can be luxurious gas hoggin’ getaways for indulgent types. Personally, I would like to get an RV as a permanent home, because I like the idea of a small home, and being able to travel in it. Gas might suck, but that depends on the type of RV you get, how much you drive it, whether you tow a lot of stuff, whether you have another vehicle to drive once you get to your general destination, etc.
