I'm 61, not quite retired, DW is a bit older and now retired. Been RV'ing as a family of three for about 15 years, on our second class A RV. RV'ing is one of the best things for a family to do together. We try to go out on weekends at least once a month, sometimes for several days. Some years, due to youth sports, scouts, etc., we didn't get to use it as much as we would have liked, now that son is off to college, we are going out more often. According to the log book, we have made 126 trips in 15 years, 14 trips in the past year. Our trips are usualy not to far in distance, as I am in the airline bussiness and we take a "company" plane if we are going any great distance. We have also joined with an RV club, meeting up with other RV'ers is the most fun that we have had. We are looking to my retirement within a few years, purchasing the retirement rig, and spending a lot of time on the road.

It would be next winter; probably Feb - March. What would it be like in the deserts at that time of year?

That's still a great time to explore the deserts. Based on rainfall the deserts might be full of color. Snoop around on DesertUSA.com for some information . Anza-Borrego State Park I think is one of coolest deserts to explore much different than any other and its huge !

That's the perfect time to be in the desert. In fact we spend most of winter in the South West Boondocking. Lots of open space, free BLM areas to park your rig, great weather. The blooms don't tend to come out until later...around April is when you'll see the best flowers, and then it starts getting hot. We just spent the last three months in California and Arizona. Wonderful!

Talking New to full time!

Where to start. I am 27. I live in South Carolina. I am from upstate NY originally. A previous marriage brought me down here. I have 2 cats; one black with two white spots and a gray and tan. I also have a yellow lab. I decided to go fulltime RV for a lot of reasons but the biggest was price. I can afford to live alone and I am loving it. I bought a 2004 Fleetwood Prowler- 34'. It is home and I found a great place to park it. I do work for a furniture manufacturing company. Loving living the life. Now just to learn more on maintenance etc! Any tips etc would be great!

I am 34 and my wife is 42. We recently bought a 36' Damon Intruder and love to travel in the RV. Like some other's, finding dome people in our age range would be great. (Not knocking the older crowd, some know how to party)

We're close in age,our kids are a bit older, but I sure know what you mean - Time is going fast, but it seems like were never going to be able to afford to leave the work life behind us.

I am 44, hubby is 40. We bought a cabover camper last year, about this time. We went away in July, and when we came home, one of the jacks wouldn't work. Took 12 days to get all the parts, and get that thing off the truck. I can NOT be without my truck for that long. It is now for sale. A couple weeks ago, we started looking at motor homes. We now have a 2003 Fleetwood Jamboree GT. Our first trip is in October, the family capout outside Needles, CA. Last time we went, we have a tent!
Having a cabover lasted less than a year. Now "moving into" a 2003 Fleetwood Jamboree GT.

54 and DW is 56; RVing for 14 years in Class A's, started 23 years ago in a pop up with a Travel Trailer in between. 2 kids, 1 just graduated law school and the 2nd one is starting law school next week. Both still want to travel with us.

Mainly use ours for 1 week each year vacation plus tailgating, NASCAR races, visiting family, following my favorite college basketball team in March and hopefully April, motorcycle trips, and work instead of flying and staying in hotels when I can.

Hoping to retire between 60-62 so I can enjoy things even more!
