When I learned the retire-early-extreme guy lives in an RV, I looked into RV living around the big city where I currently live. There's nothing very close, so if I moved into an RV I'd have a pretty bad commute.

You might be surprised how close you CAN be...

... if you are willing to pay the price. RV parks inside significant metropolitan areas are usually expensive. (Be sure to ask about MONTHLY rates - where available they are normally a significant discount on the daily rate.

On the other hand, some mobile-home parks have a few spaces available for RVs, with monthly rental being the minimum and norm rather than something you have to explicitly ask about. And cheaper than monthly rates at RV parks.

But really, the RV life is easier and cheaper *after* you retire.
