I answered that we sold our possessions to full time. Did that in 2009 after being half time for nearly three years but just recently couldn't pass up bargain prices so bought a town house on a golf course in Arizona. We'll be spending about half the year there I'm guessing.

We currently camp about 30 or so nights per year. We are in the process of cleaning out the house in anticipation of putting it on the market around January. Some stuff will go in storage and we'll be hitting the road.

We park it in the winter but as soon as we can get'er out we go somewhere at least every other weekend but this year it has been almost every weekend. When my travel agent DW say's we're going here I got'er booked I drive her and the dog over there. We do usually take a 2 week ride somewhere when we go on vacation.Utah 2009 and Maine 2010 were the last two. Also have a daughter in Naples Fl. so that makes a good ride. We both still work so that does cramp our camping style.

We use the M/H 2 or 3 weekends a mo, and 3 weeks vacation per year. Plans are the rent the house out and do f/t living in the m/h in the next year while we are still working to see how we like it. As far as travel goes, I got tired of jumping in the mh and seeing how far I can get in a week. Any more I would rather spend my time camping rather than burning up the highway, most trips 500 miles or less. Plenty of time for long road trips after we retire, then we don't need to come back to anywhere.

We have "full timed" twice. The first time, for 4 years, was due to a military reassignment where in we ended up in Phoenix, was done in a 23 foot 1987 Toyota Dolphin. We did not want to sell our house here in Vegas due to my planned retirement at the end of '93. The second time was for a year in the Tiffin after we sold our larger townhouse and decided where and if we wanted to buy another house or go full time. Ended up staying here in Vegas and buying a smaller townhouse here.

Still have 3 kids (13, 19, & 23) at home, find myself in the unenviable position of being stuck in northern illinois in the winter with kids in school.

There is a guy that has a marine business down the road from us who took his wife and daughter to the Fl Keys every winter. He simply took her out of school and enrolled her down there. The winters are none too fun here either and the boat business pretty slow. When the daughter got to be a teen she didn't want to leave her friends and the wife wanted to stay in the snow with her. He would come back to visit Thanksgiving and Christmas
