RETIREMENT ON THE ROAD
If you want to retire in an RV, it's fairly easy to join the rest of the snowbird community and jaunt off to where the weather's best. The Good Sam family of campsites keeps a list of snowbird-friendly RV campsites, while Thousand Trails offers annual camping passes to more than 100,000 such sites in North America. Almost all peak snowbird destinations are in the Southwest, Southeast, or Gulf States, and even frugal living under those conditions can cost upward of $14,000 a year. But there are certain destinations that folks feel are worth it. We looked around to find places snowbirds just love to call home — if only until it gets a little warmer up north.
