Welcome! We are Ron and Marybeth from Nevada. We are currently looking at going full time this summer. Our house will be on the market shortly and once it sells we plan on purchasing an Itasca 42GD. There is so much to learn but that is half the fun the this lifestyle change! Good luck with your travels, and you never know, we may be neighbors at a campground somewhere down the road!

Welcome from Colorado! We just recently bought our first coach and traded the 5th wheel. A little too much snow here right now to enjoy it!
