On November 3, 2014 I celebrated (well I didn’t actually ‘celebrate’ LOL) FOUR FULL YEARS as a full time RV’er. Who woulda thunk it !!???
So I’m beginning now my 5th year.
I keep track of all my expenses – like any good ex-finance person would.
I wrote about my first years expenses HERE
My second year HERE
My third year HERE
Here now are the numbers for 4 years:
I now have spent a total of $25,243.92 in gas (for the RV only) in those four years. That is an average of $525.92 per month. This average will decrease over the coming months as I just spent $1,650.31 driving from Ontario, Canada to Yuma, AZ.
However, overall, I really don’t see getting that monthly average down much more due to the distance I have to travel back and forth to Canada.
YEAR ONE – AVERAGE WAS $ 661.16
YEAR TWO – AVERAGE WAS $ 679.15 (that was the year I drove all the way back to NL)
YEAR THREE – AVERAGE WAS $ 571.75
That total has come in at $11,050.74 – meaning an average of $230.22 per month. Remember, I include any ‘dump’ costs in that figure when I’m boondocking and I’ve also included the cost of my solar, batteries etc.
YEAR ONE – AVERAGE WAS $ 311.36
YEAR TWO – AVERAGE WAS $ 224.84
YEAR THREE – AVERAGE WAS $ 270.59
In my report last year I said “I wanted the total of these two main expenses to not exceed $1,000 per month and as you can see at an average of $842.34 I’m way under. “
After the fourth year that monthly average is now down to $756.14.
A total of $2265.16 – A monthly average of $47.19.
A total of $655.17 – a Monthly average of $13.65.
Boring stuff I know. But I like to keep a record of these things. Plus it might help any wanna be RV’er who might be reading this.
