A family of four in Florida’s Panhandle, now a home for their extended family, purchased their first RV last year.
Now, they’re planning to keep the place that has them in a state of flux and change their plans.
Bob and his wife, Linda, live in a two-bedroom house with their three children.
They’ve put their dream house up for sale, hoping to raise enough money to purchase a new RV.
They’re still looking for a buyer and say they’d like to do it sooner rather than later.
The RV is a three-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot RV that they built and are using for their family.
They had a friend who bought it and the kids enjoyed living in it.
Bob, who works as a software developer, and Linda, who has a business degree, say they were looking to move to Florida to work on a new project and wanted to keep their home.
Bob says he and his family would like to keep living in the house and would like the family to be able to use the bathroom in the bedroom, which is where the kids usually sleep.
“We just wanted to have something that would give them privacy, but also that it wasn’t a big house, like a mansion,” he said.
He and Linda said they planned to take the RV to a friend in the Panhandle for a couple of weeks, and they hope to make the trip once a year to the state where they will live.
They hope to sell it once they get to the place they’d be living in for a while.
Bob said he thinks a big factor in the purchase is the fact that they’re renting out their house and want to make it available for others to rent out.
“I think it makes it more attractive to others, but that’s just the way it is,” he added.
“It was an easy decision.
It was easy for us to make.”
Bob said the couple has no plans to move anywhere else and they’d consider living in their house in the future.
Linda said she and Bob’s kids will enjoy the RV for years to come.
“My kids, they like the RV, they love it,” she said.
“And so I’m not concerned about them moving to another house.
It’s just that they’ve been living here so long, and I’m going to do everything I can to help them and their parents.”
