I'm a lurker here, and don't own a frv YET, but we have a plan to accomplish our younger travels. Maybe it could work for you or others.
We are in year 2 of our three year plan. We are truck drivers. My wife and I. This is a second career for us as we were bored and disinterested in our former careers. As team drivers we make a tidy sum and and are in huge demand. We are running hard in year one and two and are throwing many thousands of money each month at our mortgage. Payoff is now less than 46000$. Should be eliminated in mid 2017. Then we will work six more months to fatten up the accounts, and then take a leave of absence on Dec. 1, until April 1 2018. During that time we will buy a new or nearly Casita
and use it for short trips and shakedown.
After that wr want to continue to work 8 months a year and take 4 months off each year. We will own everything free and clear, and still make good coin in those 8 to support us.
I'm 49 and wife is 44. We look at it as taking our retirement a bit at a,time or in installments.
The key to this plan is 1) being debt free
2) being in demand in our profession, so our company will have no choice but to give us our leave of absence or lose us.
So many people save their whole lives and then have unexpected events in their retirement years and never get to enjoy.
So maybe trucking? Its not glamorous, but pay can be goid if you find your niche, and you can work anywhere in the US.
