Finally a Fulltimer what should we expect?

Well it took close to 2 years of planning, but the family and I made the big move to fulltiming. We are putting the finishing touch on the TT (Outback 324CG) to make it fulltime friendly. Now that we are here any other fulltimers have any words of advice as we get underway?

We will be mostly static for the first few months as we get our feet wet, but will steadily increase our travels for the next 12 months.

I'm all ears.

Thanks All!

With a 37' long trailer, expect it to be a handful in the wind, and it will be a little harder to find places to park it. Many national and state parks may not have room for that beast. But, when you do find someplace to park it, you'll be pretty comfortable.

Well that is a good question. We are towing it with a 3/4 ton Suburban, that has been converted to a 1 ton running gear with a 2007 LMM Duramax and Allison combination.

You are NOT on vacation.........so RELAX
Enjoy the travel as much as the destination

LESS is MORE

1 bag IN=======2 bags OUT
Otherwise you will have so much stuff you can't find what you really need---which is very little.

The basics go a long way....if you haven't used it (or even seen it) in 6 mos---you don't need it.

Thanks everybody for you inputs. I think you're all right...

The hardest part is going to be to slow down and enjoy the journey when you have so many things on your checklist.
