I put down "fulltimers," even though, technically, we're not...but we're on the road for 6 months out of the year, which you didn't have a choice for.

I put 1 to two months but we really use it more like 4 months, only not straight. usually two months in AZ in winter then 1 to two months for trips like Alaska etc.

Great question Mike.

We still have to work so we can only go out on the weekends and vacations. We got the new camper yesterday and will be in it for a week.

Had to put weekends and vacations only, for now, but looked for the "full-timer wanna-be" option...

We still have to work, in our late 40's, 8 to 10 years from retirement. Part of us wants those years to go fast so we can get out on the road for months at a time. For now we try to get out every other weekend. If we miss a week, we double up . We also took 2 weeks straight this year and worked in 1 1/2 more .

We spent too much money on this rig for it to sit around.

Now we are looking forward to the Quartzsite trip, our first time. Sounds to me like the Sturgis for RV'ers. Well, no naked people I hope .

Week ends and vacation only. We are able to go almost twice a month on the average since our winters are not very severe. I am usually thinking on the way home on where and when we are going again. Love it.

Yea, that's a pretty good analogy!

Actually, there are! I know there's a group of nudists that meet out somewhere on BLM land around Quartzsite. And then there's the guy who owns the local bookstore...!
