Retirement Tips
This is the NEW Retirement Tips website. The original website was called "Retirement Tips and RV Stuff" and was designed primarily for those planning to spend most or all of their time in a recreational vehicle (RV). I've built this new version to concentrate only on retirement - to visit the RV Stuff website, CLICK HERE. It's packed full of interesting and entertaining information, so you may want to check it out.

There's a list of topics on the left  that try to address some of the major retiree questions on topics like how much money is enough, how to retire early, how to find work while RVing, and how to save money on key items like medical. There are also links to two books that I wrote that really expand on these topics.

Retire and Travel for $1000 a Month by Robert Hoffman     EBOOK or HARD-COPY BOOK

Although this book describes a 5-month trip taken several years ago, most of the major costs are still substantially the same as they were when the book was originally published. This book describes a 5000-mile trip in our new RV in 1984, with many RV buying tips, on-the-road tips, and amusing anecdotes about our adventures travelling from Florida to California. It includes my advice on how to get by on $1000 a month and other retirement and RV related tips that I learned on that first trip.
