living full time

How many people live full time in their expandable hybrids and where are you ? We plan on moving to Texas or N.M in a year and live in our 23ss.

We would NEVER full-time in our 23SS or any hybrid.
Our camping style is not to stay long in one place. Which means setting up and taking down a lot.
Plus the lack of sound insulation for such a long and extended time, would also get old.
We've been retired almost 2 years and we expect to move to a TT or 5th wheel for spending months traveling.

Too me, full-timing in a hybrid, is a bad idea, second only to doing in a popup.

And we have owned ours for nearly 10 years now and still love it.
We've done extended trips of up to 6 weeks straight.

My recommendation would be south Texas. I live in southern New Mexico and even here we get pretty cold in the winter, teens and twenties. I think unless you did some serious insulating anywhere in NM would be cold in a hybrid.

I think it would have to be an individual thing, I myself like the fall season here in PA, it is a really nice time of year in this area, I also like being around until Christmas, but after that I could take the hybrid south and stay until March 25th. I hope to do that some day, I could do 10 weeks in there probably not much more. Now my wife, not so sure as long as she had her dogs I guess, hard to say you would just have to try it.

The other thing to consider is that your pretty limited as far as tank capacity. Unless you have full hookups you'll spend a lot of time with a blue boy or breaking camp to dump.

Going fulltimers, we would definitely have full services. We are thinking of Florida on the West Coast !

If we were to go full time, it would not be in a hybrid. I would want something designed for full time use. A hybrid is an ultra light design using the lightest weight components available. Great for towing, great for weekends and vacations, but not durable for constant use. Check the plastic sink faucet, and the plastic sink itself. Nope, I would want heavier duty.

We lived in our Popup for almost 4 months when we 1st moved to NC, and it was just a 1968 tent on a trailer. Our hybrid is a castle compared to it so yes we could if we chose to. We will be doing some extended trips in a few years once retirement gets here....
