Reasons to Love Long-Term RVing

Are you 55 or older and love to travel? Do you want to spend more time experiencing your favorite destinations like a local? Consider long-term RVing! When you book a long-term spot at a senior mobile home and RV community like The Oaks at Zephyrhills, you have more opportunities to discover all of the amenities of the region. With less expensive rates for extended stays at most RV parks, you also will be able to stretch your budget further! Whether you are a snowbird seeking the Florida sun for a season or a retiree planning to make Zephyrhills your home, becoming a long-term RVer is an affordable and practical solution for many.

But before you commit to the permanent RV lifestyle, there are a few things to consider. When you trade a brick-and-mortar home for the RV life, you are also trading some stability for flexibility. If you plan to spend your retirement traveling the 50 states in your RV, that sacrifice may be worth the experience!

Becoming a long-term RVer is the middle ground between being constantly on the move and permanently rooted somewhere. Remember, with every move to a new campground, there’s a new area to learn and resources to find, like the closest veterinarian’s office, reputable doctors, places to shop, nearby restaurants, or even laundromats. (If you stay at The Oaks at Zephyrhills, we offer laundry facilities on-site, and we’re close to plenty of local shopping, state-of-the-art medical facilities, recreational opportunities, and restaurants.) With a longer lease, you have more time to really feel at home, by getting to know the area and discovering your preferences.

Longer-term leases for RV lots also afford you cost savings. To find the lowest price possible, you may need to be flexible with location and make a longer commitment. At most mobile home and RV communities, the longer you stay, the less you will pay per month. We recommend that you stay for longer than six months to get the most bang for your buck. The Oaks at Zephyrhills offers daily, monthly, and seasonal rates, which range in prices, but the yearly lease option definitely saves you the most. (The Oaks also rents one- and two-bedroom mobile home units, if you really want to settle down! That’s why we say you can “Stay Your Way” with us!)

More time in a community also gives you more chances to take advantage of its amenities. At The Oaks at Zephyrhills, you will find free Wi-Fi for residents, along with a crystal-blue pool, a beautiful clubhouse, a shuffleboard pavilion, community activities, special events, and more.

Once you have decided to start the long-term RV lifestyle, the next question is where? Our recommendation, not surprisingly, is Zephyrhills, Florida! The city offers a prime location between the major metropolitan areas of Tampa and Orlando, and warm weather for visitors to enjoy! Many RVers are drawn to the area’s pastoral countryside, scenic parks, freshwater springs, and nearby beaches – and stay to become part of the friendly and welcoming community!
