Hello from NE Florida

New to the RVing, have dabbled in the past but never owned. It's just me and my dog "Ben" and I had been contemplating moving from my 4 bedroom house to a Mobilehome. After looking at a few and "visiting" with the neighbors in a couple of 55+ parks I discovered that most everyone move there to die. So after some research I decide that wasn't my plan and I saw a piece on Travel Channel about full time RVing.... So new idea, don't like neighbors; unplug and go... so after scouring the want ads and online , I came upon a well loved '86 Vogue Cosmopolitan DP and bought it... story is yet to written but I'm going thru all systems and figuring out how everything works , having it detailed as we speak and have replacement parts on order... Plan is to dump house and fulltime.. Look forward to new adventure...
