I'm thinking it is possibly the best snapshot anywhere of what fulltime RVers spend.

I tend to think so as well. The fact that a few more keep adding to it and yet the shape changes very little seems to support that view.

Great topic! Thanks for doing this poll and posting it. Escapees is best thing that ever happened to RVing. The information and services are priceless! They help make it simplifier to make contact with other RVers who know where the rubber meets the road. I am preparing to return to my full time RV lifestyle armed with a lot more information then when I left it in 2010. It is so much easier to make the significant change to full timing when you have more information that has been shared by those who are living the lifestyle more than 15% of 800,000 RVers have come to love.

We should probably point that post out to the admin crew! I'm sure that the management would all appreciate your comments.

I just posted our 2018 Fulltime RVing Expense sheet. Frankly, it was an expensive year with major repairs on both 5th wheel and F350. Some years are like that for everyone: both RVers and folks living in Stix and Brix. This year it was our turn to feel some financial pain.  

Here's a link to the 2018 expense sheet.

Here's our full-timing budget for 2 adults and a dog, traveling in an SUV towing a Casita trailer and driving across the US, Canada and Mexico.

We keep track of all our expenses and income as we go and find it easier to separate our expenses into 'yearly' and 'monthly' expense categories.

It comes down to about $2,000 per month total budget with $685 spent on things that fall in the 'Yearly' category and $1,345 that fall in the 'Monthly' category.
