So you own some type of mobile home/trailer that you will be living in?
Where is the 140K you are going to bump up your savings with coming from? Are you going to be saving over 20k a year from your paycheck? I think I agree with your planner that the numbers are not there yet.
My car is brand new and I will not be driving it much, if at all. Gas should be fine. Most of the $ in that category is for registration & insurance.
Yes, I will be in a trailer with free rent/utilities.
In $'s, I'm currently putting $18.3K in my 401K annually. I'm also currently putting $7,800 annually in savings, which will be bumped up after one debt is paid off to $11,050 annually, and then again bumped up to $25,350 annually when my last debt is paid off. All of that takes place in the next 7 yrs pre-retirement.
