Yup, we sold our Sticks and Bricks May 2011 ,retired July 2011.
Have been coast to coast, across the southern states. Texas to Montana.
Started out in 40' fiver, we now have a 40' Winnebago ,Journey.
We have a home base in Ft. Worth ,Tx. Kids and grand kids there.
Go there to check in 3-4 times a year. No tellin how long we will do this.
We made one mistake, getting a storage unit. Thought we needed to save
Some things. We have more invested in the storage unit that it is worth.
Good luck.

Got the RV. Got rid of the S&B. Put some things in storage, had no time to get rid of it then. A year later we made time to go back and get rid of everything in storage. Now all we have is the RV to live in.

Lots of full timers in class A's, 5th wheels, travel trailers, some class C's and we have even met a couple full timing in a class B.

We recently sold our sticks and bricks and went full time in a 5th wheel.

We are headed to Ft. worth. For the holidays, with the kids and grand kids.
Going to empty the storage unit. My mistake for even putting things there in
the first place. 10 year old washer and dryer. Fridge and kitchen table and chairs.
Have spent enough on storage in the to replace all. We think it maybe a insurance
in case the FULLTIMING didn't work. Of which there is no end in sight.

I think that's why they call themselves Full-timers. Jim

We are into our 4th year of full timing and hopefully going for many more, sure do not miss those high property taxes and the savings there cover the RV park accommodations for the full year
