Can I Still RV Full-Time During a Coronavirus Outbreak?

Hello! Unsettled Essence here. I’m finally digging myself out of my lethargy and working on my next post. In the meantime, I’ve thought about how the Coronavirus threat has changed my day-to-day life–I’m teleworking full-time, I can’t go out for a nice dinner, and I can’t hang out and play cards with my boyfriend at our favorite brewery. . . Also, I sometimes worry.

I also think about how this outbreak would affect my life if I were full-time RVing. I’ve had questions: How would I deal with increasingly scarce campsites? Could I still even travel? How do nomads quarantine themselves?

RVers all over social media are asking the same questions. Those with a sticks-and-bricks residence are returning home. For the rest of us, it’s a game of musical chairs, and no one wants to be caught without one.

Robyne Stevenson,

In her article, “I’m A Full-Time RVer: Here’s What The Coronavirus Outbreak Means For Me,” Robyne Stevenson describes what it’s like to live on the road during this uncertain time. She doesn’t sugarcoat what RVers are up against, but here are some of the ways she suggests for RVers to survive and thrive:

  • Find somewhere you can stay for about a month. Be prepared to rethink your options as conditions change.
  • Stock up on groceries and medical supplies (But don’t be a hoarder!) so you can limit time being around other people who are shopping.
  • Try to stay hear a hospital or clinic in case you come down with symptoms.
  • If you have a library card, download your favorite eBooks.
