The advice you receive here may, or may not be helpful only because if your intended use.

The people here talk in terms of mobility, and the term full timing is really for those that use the rig in its intended purpose.

You, on the other hand obtained your rig to mainly substitute for your domicile so matters of mobility are not really as important, and the term full timer is not as accurate as something like living in my RV, and as such you, like others have said, may have trouble finding a spot. A location in a "Trailer Park", may be easier to find than one in an "RV Park".

Your problems may be more closely aligned to Mobil Homes.

Then again, I could have it all wrong.

We just signed a year lease at a camp best where I will be going to school in a couple of weeks. If at all possible, I would encourage you to spend some time in your rig before going to school. That way you have a chance to juggle the logistics before it becomes a distraction from your schoolwork. We've spent most of the last six months living in the RV, so most of the bugs have been identified at the least.

You have made a good choice Michelle. Biggest thing to remember is you will be living in the land of wet. REALLY go over the roof, seals, caulking, etc. loong before Fall. Next would be water/sewer system, propane, and electrical. If you get these handled you can move on to the fun stuff of actually making it your home.
Hold off on an awning until you have an idea of where you will park your home. Awnings are expensive & often times inconvenient/unusable. You might find a $200.00 10' x 10' canopy w/sides from Costco better suits your needs.
It takes a year to get the Oregon webbed toes if you are not from here. The sun will always rise & will peek out.

Welcome to RVing!1 This is a great idea for school housing. You will find more peace and quiet than in dorm rooms or student apartment buildings. You will own your own home and dogs and RVs go together like bread and butter. As a home owner you will have to pay a little more in maintenance costs and upgrades but rent will be much cheaper and it is always more worth it to put money into something you own rather than simply rent. However, I think you need to look for "residential" RV/mobile home parks. I'm not certain about OR but in CA you must be licensed as a "residential" park to rent spots for longer than 90 days. State laws may vary. Best of luck.
