Hello everyone!

New member checking in. I have lived full-time in an RV for over 15 years. It started by accident and I found I really enjoyed it. Through winter and summer and different trials and tribulations I still enjoy camping. I'm glad to be here and Happy New Year.

With 15 years of fulltiming, no doubt you'll be a great resource for others, but don't be shy about asking questions either.

Tell us a bit more about that 'accidental' fulltiming thing. Sounds like it could be interesting.

I agree - accidentally full timing sounds interesting. You've got to have tons of interesting stories and lessons for us after 15 years!

At one time my ex-wife and I thought about full-timing on a sailboat. That didn't work out. Fast forward to Miami when I was selling my house to friends by leasing it to them with an option to buy. Month after month they didn't pay the rent on time, so I moved into my 15 ft Winnebago trailer which I parked at Larry and Penny Thompson Park. While I was watching over my house and the missing rent, I started to enjoy living in an rv park. After I sold my house a year later to someone else, I bought a 34 ft LaSalle motorhome and became a true full-timer. (I really just hate to do yard work LOL).

Welcome xdup, I grew up in that end of the state. I hate yard work too. Must be a regional thing.
