I have heard many differing reasons for people to start RVing on their own, whether it be through personal choice, the death of a spouse or divorce. There is no reason for giving up on an RV adventure because you can find the best of both worlds if you open your mind to the possibilities. You have all your space to yourself, privacy when needed, but since RVers are some of the friendliest folks around, it’s never hard to find companionship when wanted.
I frequently hear concern about being lonely. There really is a difference between lonely and alone. Here’s what I wrote about that: Don’t You Ever Get Lonely?
