I would like to retire as a fultimer. Any info about average monthly expense. Would stay four or five month at a time in one place. Ideal set up would be a 40 footer fifth wheeler.

Howdy and welcome to the forum. Sorry, but I believe there are far too many variables to estimate any average monthly expenses. You might check out the Fulltimer's Board to see if the folks there can give you some guidance. Full-Timers - iRV2 Forums

Good luck!

It can be as expensive as you want!
Are you going to eat out most of the time.
Is the rig paid for?
Are you going to do repairs yourself?
Are you going to stay in resorts or boondock?

As was said earlier: there are so many variables that we really can't say with what you gave us.

When we finally retire we'll have about $72,000 a year without hitting the IRA's. I think that'll be enough. I suppose if we rent/lease the stick house out it will be more though.

Welcome to the forum! As already stated there are far too many variables to answer your question directly. Some have reported doing just fine on very little money while others spend $10K/mo. All depends on how one goes about it.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy your time here. I guess expenses are all about lifestyle and only you know yours. We're in a park where I can see some live very limited but then there are some that really shoot the moon. It's obvious that they also have the money to be able to do that as well. Good luck with your future plans and hope you enjoy all your traveling experiences.
