Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. While many people think […]

A Dose Of Reality

I get a lot e-mails and letters to the editor and see posts online from people with limited funds who want to go fulltime and are looking at older, usually entry level RVs. And many of those RVs have been sitting a long time, which is why they are for sale at relatively low prices. […]

This is the second half of yesterday’s blog, covering some of the many questions we regularly get from new and wannabe fulltimers. Which is better for fulltime use, a motorhome, travel trailer, or a 5th wheel trailer? No one style or model of RV will be right for everyone. Everybody’s needs, budget, and lifestyle are […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question, because there is no one size fits all. Each of us has our own needs and priorities, and […]

If you’re a fulltime RVer, you’re probably going to tow something. You’ll either drive a truck and tow a travel trailer or fifth wheel, or else you’ll drive a motorhome and tow a car, SUV, or pickup, which RVers commonly call a toad or dingy. When it comes to towing a car, there are four […]

Well, actually we’re at the Leisure Time/Thousand Trails resort in Seaside, Oregon. But with roomy full hookup RV sites, a nice indoor pool, and fast Verizon 3G and 4G internet service, it sure feels like heaven! We hoped to get an earlier start yesterday morning, but the couple who were parked behind us came over […]

Yesterday Terry was feeling better, and we both had a bit of cabin fever, so we decided it was a good day to get out of the motorhome and run some errands. Our first stop was the post office in Wildwood, to drop off some orders that came in over the weekend. Since I had […]

We were up early yesterday morning and after spending some time checking e-mails, replying to the most pressing ones, and checking some of our favorite RV blogs, we started getting ready for the last segment of our trip to Tucson. It was a very chilly morning but since we had only plugged in the electrical […]

I’ve had two different people e-mailing me in the last few days with questions about buying an RV for fulltime living. That’s not surprising, I get a lot of e-mails from people asking for advice, and I’m always happy to offer whatever I can, with the caveat that it’s free advice, and worth exactly what […]
