One of our seasonal RVers, who is new to full-time RVing this year, was good enough to send along a link to an article on the subject of downsizing your home to an RV.

The article contains tips on paring down and checklists of things you will need as a full-time RVer. To simplify the task of parting with your belongings, the writer suggests the following groups of items be examined:
- Clothes and shoes
- Kitchen and Household Items
- Files, Papers and Office Items
- Tools and Garage Items
As well, she considers subgroups for each of the above groups: necessities for your RV, nice-to-have items if there’s room and completely unnecessary items.
What did you consider when you made the leap to full-time RVing? Do you have any other tips to share regarding downsizing your home to fit the RV lifestyle? Let us know in the comments.
