The RV Lifestyle: 8 Signs You’ve Been on the Road Too Long

rv lifestyleYou’re a pro RVer. You’ve taken untold trips, traversed the country dozens of times, and put tens – nay, hundreds – of thousands of miles on that asphalt-eating, state-crossing, rolling castle of yours. The only way you could see more of America is if you were a GPS satellite. But every now and then, no matter how much of a seasoned road warrior you are, it’s a good idea to put ‘er in park for a while. I know, I know. “I don’t need to put ANYTHING in park!” I can hear you saying. Okay…more like “screaming.” Calm down, there, buddy. Check your rear end: Is it conformed to the driver’s seat? Yeah, I thought so. Calm down, take a deep breath, and remember: Nothing helps you appreciate your time on the road like staying off the road for a while, right? With that in mind, your friends at Safe-T-Plus are here with a few signs that it may just be time to take a little bit of a breather from the RV lifestyle. And what’s you’ve gotten all that appreciating in, it’ll be time to saddle up again, because hey— that’s what you do. 1. You feel queasy when you stop your camper, and attribute it to all that “dadburned bein’ still.” 2. If the words “fried,” “deep-fried,” or “chicken-fried,” don’t appear within the first few lines of its menu, you don’t consider it a real restaurant. 3. You’ve taken to asking gas station attendants, “Where’s your black water tank?” when you’re looking for a restroom. 4. The thought of driving anything less than 35 feet long makes you feel claustrophobic. 5. You get nervous when you’re somewhere that doesn’t have its glass items properly secured. 6. On the rare occasion you sleep anywhere other than your RV, you sleep between the bed and the wall because a double bed is “far too roomy.” 7. You stop at at least one elementary school a week to hand out the pamphlet you self-published entitled, “Why RV Safety Should Replace Social Studies as a Required Subject.” 8. You giggle uncontrollably when you hear somebody at a rest stop complaining about driving six straight hours. How long at a time do you like to live the RV lifestyle? How can you tell when it’s time to put it in park for a bit? Please share your thoughts with us in the comments!
