I agree as well - there are a whole bunch of different considerations and challenges when you're full timing. Great idea!!

I do belong to forums that have dedicated full-timers section, and they are very active. However I would like to see a Forest River fullrime section. Wouldn't that be nice?

Fulltimer

We are fulltimers and travel with our 2 horses.
The hardest part is getting rid of house hold items but to us it was just stuff, had kids, grand kids, pick out what they wanted and sold the rest.
We live on $3000 per month, if we need extra we get part time work. We do not owe any body so that helps. We could live on less but we like to go exploring not sit at home.
We have been camp hosts,worked in restaurant, grocery store. We might work just one if us for 6 months 20 hours per week.
We stay at every place we like for 3-6 months.
Would not trade this life for any other.
Had to get adjusted to the space as we came from 4,000 sq foot house to
5th wheel 39 feet with 3 large slides but adjusted well.
For us the challenge is finding nice horse camps across the country but so far have found awesome places. We have reservations out for one year. Next stop Utah

And I thought we downsized
We had a 2600 sq ft home on 2.5 acres with all the trimmings. We are totally loving this life style. Granted its only been since 12 Aug 14, but were totally relaxed, really enjoying life without having to work on the house and property every day. I think ww are going to adjust just fine.

fulltimer

Glad you are enjoying it as much as we are.
Don't miss yard work we had 20 acres. Don't get me wrong it was nice
but don't miss the work.

So no admin types want to address this?

A full-time section would be nice.
