Ever wonder how your RV utility bills compare to something else – perhaps an ordinary sticks and bricks home?
I've had the chance to live in the SAME exact GPS coordinates, using the same utilities, with the same family, and with the same approximate climate in an RV and a modular home.
I thought I would take some time (yuk) and write down and do a little spreadsheet work and show people the comparison between my RV and my modular.
Did I learn anything? I'm not 100% sure.
I think I learned:
- My 16 year old daughter uses WAY too much hot water (I fixed her and you can see how I did it in my short report)
- I'm SUPER happy with my modular home's utility bills.
- It was WAY colder in Texas in the winter of 2013-2014 than it was the prior year. Surprising so.
- 10 degrees of average temperature difference has a pretty big impact on your utility bills.
- Water isn't that expensive… yet.
- LP gas for an RV isn't that expensive either.
- Making eReports & books is a lot of work. But I documented what I did and I'll make a few more articles on that. Oddly, my non-RV articles usually get more interest and traffic than the RV ones. I think that is because RV people are people who live in RVs, not people who have myopic interests in ONLY RVs. I figure each and every one of you has a book just waiting to jump out! Maybe I can help somehow.
All that being said… If this interests you at all, either leave a comment OR simply click here to go to my page that shows the cover and other information about my eReport. It is short and expensive on a per-page basis, but I won't sell very many and it was a fair bit of work for me.
I'm always farting around with odd-ball projects. Here is my page on my odd-ball projects. Maybe you'll find something interesting there.
