Things you could save on:
- You could probably stay at cheaper parks and for longer. Boondock (Dry Camp). Harvest Hosts or use other camp memberships.
- Gas. You can use rewards cards, grocery points. By staying longer at each place you wont be moving as much.
- Tolls, you could find alternative routes. Pay for Apps that calculate cheapest route.
- Do less paid activities. Find cheap or free things to do locally. Trip Advisor usually has recommendations.
- Eat less Takeout. Sounds simple enough, but don't eat out so often, and if you do check on google to see the costs of each place before you go.
- Do maintenance yourself. We opted to have someone change our bearings but this is something you can easily do yourselves. Obviously some things you will have to take to a garage for but you can save money by keeping on top of the day to day stuff. The same goes for your main vehicle or the tow along vehicle.
- Cheaper Data Plan/Phone hotspot. As we mentioned we paid a lot to ensure the best coverage for Laurence's work. However a general AT&T hot spot is a lot cheaper and just fine if you only need to have minimal coverage.
