RV Relocation: How To Travel For $1 A Day

Updated: Mar 11

Being a budget-savvy traveler who finds a way to explore God's creation inexpensively is truly a talent. Being able to do it with a home on wheels is even better.

If you have ever considered traveling across the nation in an RV or Camper Van, then you know that there are some very expensive costs to consider. Will you:

  • purchase an RV or rent one?

  • remodel the RV and how much will that cost?

  • pay the cost of a campground every night or purchase solar panels and go boondocking?

What if I told you there was an inexpensive way to travel in an RV, at least to give the lifestyle a try before fully committing?

It's called RV and Camper Van Relocation Program.

RV Relocation- Travel for $1 A Day

Companies around the world require assistance in relocating their RVs from one city to another and want to do so in an inexpensive way. So instead of paying $200+ a night to rent an RV or Camper Van, they charge you anywhere from $1-$50 a night (depending on the company) and ask for your assistance in relocating to it's final destination. While this means the start and end of your journey is pre-determined, the route to get there is less so. Many give you up to a month to get to the final destination, meaning you can plan your own route and stop at your own destinations along the way!

With that in mind, we have put together a list of different programs and some basic info you need to know about each one, but we encourage you to visit their website for the most up to date details.
