We are full time at Savannah, KOA. My wife has 17 months until retirement from the FAA. We really like being full time, been since Aug 2012.

My wife and myself have been retired for several years now. We first purchased a TT and loved it. We just purchased a Palomino 295rl and plan on selling our house and traveling for at least 2-3 years before deciding on a smaller house somewhere with more sunshine year round. If we were to go full time instead of buying a house, what do you full timers do about medical needs as you get older and want or need more medical attention.

This has been our biggest concern. We are both in very good health and do not forsee any problems, but one has to be realistic.

One other concern is if we do not buy a house for 5-15 years, will we be priced out of the housing market when houses do finally go up in price.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

We are lucky to live in Canada. We have medical coverage all across the country. When we head to the west coast we will get a 6 month supply of drugs (we only get our drugs from the province which we live). Last year when in BC my DW was diagnosed with bladder cancer. She was admitted to the hospital in BC where they removed the tumor. We had no out of pocket expenses for the hospital stay. She was given several prescriptions that were filled in BC. We only had to purchase one months worth so our expenses were only $35. The way our provincial medical plan works is that if the province we are visiting charges more then the cost at home we might have to pay the difference. That is one advantage of paying higher taxes.
