Hi. I’m a widow that moved into my RV 5 years ago and thoroughly love the way of life. the more you travel the less stuff you will find you need. A fringe benefit to traveling light is your gas mileage. I drive a 34 foot Tiffen allegro and pull a 2003 Ford Focus and get 10 miles per gallon on most roads

We are in our 4th year full-timing. After the first 7 months, we came back to our condo and sold all of the contents and rented it. We have had great tenants and a property manager. The equity appreciates and we have a closet in the cellar where we can keep ‘storage unit’ items for no fee. when I visited it this summer, I realized I did not even remember (or miss) 90% of the items there. We are slowly scanning all of our photos to digital and have taken pictures of and moved on various awards and trophies. Do… Read more »

When I met my wife and we had to combine 2 households into one and then eventually when we moved into our motorhome her refrain was always “it’s just stuff” and I’ve never forgotten that. Sure we still have “stuff” in a storage unit which we “visit” on occasion but it’s still just “stuff” and after awhile it does not seem very important with the exception of family memorabilia. Look on You Tube for a great George Carlin routine about “stuff” it’s hilarious! Enjoy your travels.

Chuck-After almost 11 wonderful years on the road, whenever we get a comment about being homeless, I’m happy to reply “We may be house-less, but we certainly are not homeless!” Hope you live life on the road as much as we do!

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have at least one of those “what have I done?” moments. They’re a good occasion for a little meditation and contemplation. Usually, I’ve done something I want. Sometimes, I have to decide whether to change my prior decision.

Hi Chuck, as a 10 years + full timers let me pass on to you and others a few VERY IMPORTANT points. 1. Never tell a cop or customs official (should you go to Canada or Mexico) that you are “homeless, a nomad or full timers – NEVER. You must always tell them “we are on a traveling vacation.” When they ask “where do you live” be consistent. Give the address on your driver’s license. It should match your motorhome registration. 2. You need a mailing address in order to Vote. Many credit card companies will not issue a card… Read more »

So happy for you and Gail. we call our RV our condo. It has 7 rooms (zones) I named them to store and place items, so we don’t have to play the where did I put it game. library/media center Office family room/living room Dining room Kitchen Spa Bedroom Also, took photos of exterior sides, did text boxes with arrows pointing towards each bay, and labeled each storage bay with the contents. Put it in a doc protector and hung it where hubby can get to it when he needs something from the “basement”. Works great, no hassles! I also… Read more »
