Smile Hello everyone !! I am New to all this ...

Hey I am new to all this and do not own an RV yet... I am single and need help deciding if this is the right decision for me. I would love to be free to move around , yet never owned an RV and not sure if its to hard for one person alone. So... I would love to learn more about RV's and how others on here manage living this way. Thanks

Howdy and welcome to the forum! I know there are lots of single RVers, so you will need to check it out carefully and decide if it's really for you. You might post your specific questions on the "Solo RVers" section of the board. Solo RV'ers - iRV2 Forums

Good luck!

Welcome, you have a lot in common with everyone here. We were all new and single at least once.

Read and ask questions and most of all get out there to some lots and look at RV's, trailer, Fifth wheels, Motor home, Class A, Class C's. Lots of people handle an RV by themselves.

What I think you should do is glean as much info as you can but, rent a small class C or the like and go somewhere for the weekend and decide if it's something you would like to do. That way you are not making a high dollar mistake if you really don't like the lifestyle. It would really be a good investment to rent one first. This is the place to get your feet wet. Welcome!
