More people downsizing, choosing to live in RVs

New lifestyle helps reduce clutter, offers movability

SAN ANTONIO – Letting go years of stuff, that’s how families are describing the seemingly more and more popular lifestyle of moving into an RV.

KSAT 12 toured one family’s new home and talked about the big change.

Why the move from a house?

“I got to thinking since we are downsizing, why not just get RVs?” asked Kevin Blakley.

Blakley is now a retired member of the Air Force and has been living in an RV for about a year now.

Blakley says one of the main reasons for being an RV full-timer is the opportunity.

“You’re mobile, so you’re not tied to one place and we see that as a big advantage we have some ideas of where we’d like to settle down, but this way we can actually visit and live there a while before making that decision,” Blakley said.

Also, he said letting go of all his “stuff” was nice.
