I am 42 and I have setup my meager portfolio to allow me to retire at 62. I have always wanted to full-time in an RV. I remember going to school as a kid on a bus seeing this old class c motorhome with a Fort Wilderness tire cover. I let my imagination go wild on trips to school for years. I take the perceptive you never really own anything in this life, you are just renting. Big houses and fancy cars just never appealed to me, so after 20 years and a few camping trips my wife has fallen in love with the idea as well. We are a happy couple, but seem happiest when we are together doing things out and about. Our thoughts will be to sell our home and buy some "land" in Orlando, Florida as a home base for the winter months. She really wants to go back to working for Disney, so our goal is to "full-time" during the months of March to September and work the holiday season at Disney world. At that point I will be retiring from 40 years of high pace IT work, dressing up as Mickey Mouse seems appealing! :-) When as you say age or health limit our ability to drive the open roads, then we can simply park the MH and live on our land or get a condo.
