Have you ever lived continuously a year or more in an RV?


Do you now live in, or have you ever lived in, an RV for a year or more? We’re talking about continuous living – not a few months here and there.

A lot of people are living full-time in RVs these days and it’s causing a lot of congestion in RV parks. Modern-day RVs are so darn comfy that it’s as easy to live in one as any sticks-and-bricks home.

It make take a few seconds for the survey to load, so stand by.

kevin lake

yes we are full time


Full time for many years, never in one spot for one year.


My wife and I have lived in our 38′ Itasca Suncrusier for just a couple of months over two years while sightseeing here in the good ol’ USA.

Been living in our 2016 Bighorn for 3 years. We stay in Wisconsin all year. The winters can be brutal next to Lake Michigan, but we put skirting around the bottom and we enjoy running water all year long. You have to adapt to the conditions. Wintertime can make for some beautiful scenery. We have 2 cats that live with us.

Lived over two years in our 24′ Nash 4M. Just bought into a Co-op park and purchased a 36 foot fifth wheel for our home base. The park has space to store the Nash. We will always Winter in the park and we will live there full time when our wandering days are over.

Our dream (after I retired) was to travel the U.S. for a couple of years. We started traveling from Oregon Sept 2018 and still on the road 15 months later. We plan on being back in Oregon approx May 2020. We have seen so much and traveled a lot. Right now we are spending the winter in Tucson AZ. We plan on living in our RV while seeing everyone in Oregon. Not sure right now what is going to happen after that. We are flexible. For sure we want to travel some more.


Been living in ours for 15 years. We started out Workamping but due to husband’s health have been parked the last 6 years. Can’t afford an apartment. Our MH is paid for so our only set housing bill is lot rent – which is going up every year due to ‘supply and demand’.

My wife and I owned a small horse farm in the Atlanta area for 25 years. My wife had a few accidents on the horses within a short period of time. We felt that God was telling us that after 45 years of riding horses it was time to downsize. I convinced my wife to trying full-time traveling before we got a new house. We sold everything and put a lot in storage. I built a website http://www.urkeytoheaven.org and put it on the back of a new Hartland 5th wheel along with the words “Heaven Or Hell it’s your choice “. That was three and a half years ago and we are still traveling. After the first year we upgraded to a Thor Motor Coach.

After 21 years on a sailboat that was sold before Katrina in ’05, we moved into 24′ fiver. After evacuating, we kept going for 8 years, 4 winters in mainland Mexico, and all over the US. Bought double wide in 2012, but still get away for summers as AZ gets hot.


We consider ourselves full-timers; we have no “base camp,” no sticks-and-bricks house, either. We DO have two lease sites at private membership RV parks. The comments around the question seem to suggest that anyone who lives in an RV all year is taking up space in an RV park. We prefer to call those folks “permanent RV park residents,” or “long-term residents” rather than travelers…. “Full-timing” is, as you say, a rather vague description.


14 years in a 32ft HR on Galveston Island in TCG o Galveston. Owned the lot.


My husband and I rented out our Orange County, CA home for two years from 2007-2009. We visited 37 states and 5 Canadian Provinces from the Pacific to the Atlantic. A year after we returned, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s/ Levy Body Dementia/ Multiple System Atrophy. He died last July. Memories of our wonderful adventure kept us both as joyful and grateful as we could be under the circumstances. If you dream it, do it! We regret what we don’t do far more than we regret what we do…

We full timed for 6 years (2000-’06), went back to a stick and brick and now, just sold it and back in another coach for more full time adventure!

Vanessa Simmons

Not yet but might be before 20 Oct if my house isn’t finished. That is as long as flying to one son’s house for a week at Thanksgiving, a week at the other sons house for Christmas and three weeks at my sisters in GA before and between Perry 2019 and RVillage 2.0 (could have driveway mooched since I was parked there anyway but liked the change).


Only for a year while we built our stick and brick. Now it’s about 4 months/year in the RV.

i was going through a divorce, hotels were expensive. pulled my RV into nice campground by my home and I was like OMG 8 washers and dryers meant not listening to complaining about my laundry, so five loads done at once and a few beers. couldn’t figure why I listened to the complaining so long. ONe step I brush teeth, three steps I’m on the can, two steps a shower, then AC for cheap, TV no utilities. it didn’t make sense to rent a place. then I went cross country for 9 months and worked and lived. it was a pleasure cruise!


Full-Time RVer’s for 14+ years hitting most of the lower 48 states plus three trips to Alaska to spend the summer with my sons and grandchildren. Due to go back to Alaska again. Get there early in May and leave late September just before the first snow falls. Now we are Part-Timers with winter months in Florida at our winter house and the rest of the time on the road in our coach.

Steve in the Wind

After living in Hawaii for 19 years I came back in 2007. I lived “normally” until 2012. Now beginning my 8th year in my Nuwa 5th, no huge hurdles…..yet….beyond my awning blowing away and destroying itself, and small plumbing leaks, replaced a toilet and installed a window (5000btu) AC unit…I’m not sure what I would do with all of the room in a sticks and mortar structure anymore

Angela in The Foxes Den ?

After 9-11, I re-thought things in my life. We sold our farm in Maryland and hit the road in 2005 for a new life adventure. We never looked back. We bought a 2005 Holiday Rambler 5th Wheel and slowly traveled our beautiful country. In the fall of 2016 we purchased an Arctic Fox Truck Camper. We love a truck campers versatility and we love going off road by ourselves. For 9 months of the year we are in “Our Foxes Den” traveling. The 3 months during the winter we switch out RV’s and stay in the 5th Wheel on a ranch in Tombstone, Arizona. I can’t imagine living in a sticks and bricks again.
