Smile Full Timing in 2300

Hey everyone,

New here and my husband, Mike, and I are new to the RVing world. We've done a lot of camping, and recently, a lot of traveling. Our biggest adventure is coming in a few weeks as we start our full-time semi-gypsy life. I say, "semi" because we'll be starting as Park Hosts in a quiet, day-use COE park in central TX for at least the first month. So, any of you out there living full-time in a 2300? Ours is a 2013 and has been well-loved and maintained. We've camped in it this summer numerous times in State Parks and COEs and have put it through its paces. Would love to connect with other FTers or even those of you who live in a 2300 months out of the year.

Thanks and wishing you many exciting adventures!
Jane

Hi Jane. I just ordered a 2300. I've been traveling in a 24' travel trailer pulled by a cargo van for the last 6 months, and I've decided to downsize to the 2300 so I wouldn't always have to worry about finding a campground. While waiting for delivery, I'm selling all of my stuff that won't fit in the 2300. Jim

We plan on FT'g in the next year or two in our 2300. We have done 9 days max so far, but that was with 2 adults and 2 kids so we really max'd it out. It was actually much easier than expected and we were no-where near ready to go home and get out of it. We have done several week longers and of course other trips too.

We used to think "we could use more room". BUT, when we are in it and after every trip we always say "that is a perfect size for a minimal life". We really do enjoy it, and the fact that it is a very simple unit.

Living small is awesome.

Have an awesome adventure and share your travels.

There are some modest mods you can do for storage. Pull all of bed and dinette plywood and take a look see.

You'll love your 2300! Shortly before retiring in 2014, my DH and I bought ours. Since then we've been camping more than we've been home: 7 week trip to New England, Nova Scotia and PEI, 7 week snowbird trip to Florida, and this summer we spent 2.5 months in Alaska - driving the whole way. The two of us have managed just fine and love traveling in it. The secret is: A place for everything and everything in it's place. Also give each other some space and never forget your sense of humor! Go for it and HAVE FUN!

Jane,,,,my wife and I have been full timers for 4 years now and we're park hosting at a COE in central Texas. Which park are you going to work? We're at Lake Georgetown just north of Austin.
