Living year-round in New Hampshire in an RV would be very expensive for propane during the winter. You might consider somewhere with a more suitable climate for winter.

try www.woodalls.com and select New Hampshire, then click on "show more search options" then select "pets welcome" to search for campgrounds in NH.
Once you narrow down a campground, go to www.rvparkreviews.com and you can see reviews by campers. Look for monthly rates and note whether they charge extra for electricity and pets.
Thank you for your service. I believe things happen for a reason. One door closes another one opens. Enjoy your travels. God Bless.

However much money you have is what it will cost to full-time. It really is that simple. You can look at our Fulltime RVing budget by following the link, and there are several years back to browse through. You can REALLY offset your costs by workamping.

Congratulations!

Full-timing is about as variable as the rigs people live in. Some people will tell you you can't do it for less than $40K a year, other people will show you how they do it on $4K (seriously).

Are you naturally frugal? Do you need to eat out a few times a week? Or, are you happier baking your own bread? Do you prefer nights out on the town, or days out in the forest? Do you need to make payments on your rig? Do you still have a mortgage? Are you willing to take occasional temporary jobs to supplement your incomes?

There are folks here who think you aren't living unless you're country clubbing and golfing world-class courses. That takes some scratch. Many people choose the RV life exactly for the simplicity.

Good luck!

If you are retired, use the wheels and head to warm weather during the winter. As said, people do it on all sorts of incomes. You just adjust as needed.

We started full-timing last year and in all honesty the cost will vary from person to person. My wife is extremly good with money (hand her a nickel and she'll hand you back a quarter)so under Frau Blücher's close scutiny wer'e actually saving money opposed to when we were living in our house but in the end i think it will cost about the same as living sticks n' bricks style,you'll eat the same,spend as much on clothes and such,i think the advantage for us at least is we don't see winter anymore,last summer never ended and i've been wearing shorts,tank-tops and Okabashi's ever since!

Are there CG's open year round in New Hampshire? Our experience in New England States has been CG's closing end of Sept...Mid Oct. at latest.

We FT on roughly $1600-$1800/month.......we are debit free.

CG fees, fuel and medical will be your highest costs.......unless you have high debt. CG fees & fuel costs can be controlled...(Monthly fees vs weekly/daily rates---staying longer/moving shorter distances)...medical is what it is.

Good luck!

Hi...the campgrounds that I know of that have year round camping are Meredith Woods in Meredith off Rt 93 and Danforth Bay in Freedom off of Rt 16 and I think there are 1 or 2 near Bretton Woods. They are open for snowmobilers and skiiers not retricted to them though. I do not know the policies about full timing. I believe that there are limited hookups etc during some of the winter months. Meredith Woods has an indoor pool and hot tub.
