Howard & Linda Payne, RV-Dreams.com
Howard & Linda Payne quit their corporate jobs and sold their house at age 41. Though they were living what most people would call the “American Dream”, they felt there was more to life than what traditional society expected.
So, in a moment of enlightenment, or mid-life crisis if you prefer, they gave up all they knew, including a steady paycheck, for life on the road in an RV for an indefinite period. That was in 2005.
Along with that decision, they decided to start a website called RV-Dreams.com. It is a site in which Howard took the mounds of research he had done and compiled it into one place for others considering full-time RVing. In addition, he and Linda decided to open up their lives and post their journey, their triumphs and mistakes, and their financial information for a more complete, honest look at full-time RVing.
That little website has grown into quite a community and includes an online journal, a forum, and more. Howard and Linda have presented seminars at RV shows, at RV rallies, and at RV educational conferences. And they also put on their own RV-Dreams educational rallies each year.
In addition to running the RV-Dreams website, putting on rallies, and speaking at events, Howard and Linda have also worked a variety of jobs on the road to help support their full-timing lifestyle. Their diversity of experiences, their age, and their background have combined to create an interesting perspective on RV living. And, their refreshingly straightforward approach provides those investigating the lifestyle with tools to properly evaluate whether full-timing is right for them.
