Hi from Weatherford TX

Nice to be here. Currently have a Surveyor 264 travel trailer. If our house sells we are seriously considering full timing it in a Tiffin Phaeton 40QTH. But still trying to figure out the logistics. The sale of our house will cover the cost of the RV. What we haven't figured out yet is what it will cost us to live in it full time. I'm retired Air Force and soon to be retired from Lockheed Martin the end of next year.

Welcome...It will cost, fuel for the miles you travel. Fees for the nights you hookup. Put away some money for repairs. Insurance, food, entertainment. I think it's the same as living in your stick house. Only you can't fill it up with stuff you want, but don't need, and that is a good thing . Good Luck on the sale of the home...and keep us updated...and pictures I (we) love pictures...Peace...D

Pighunter;


Sorry I can't help with your question. My travels have been limited to about 2 months a year in segments. Browse the forums that interest you and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Welcome from down at Pecan Plantation, PH!!

If you finished up at Carswell, we might've been there at the same time: 1984-1988.

I saw the Phaeton at the Ft. Worth show, was dazzled. Nice rig.

Welcome PigHunter to the boards! You'll find a lot of valuable information and meet some nice folks here! Wish you well in your determinations about full timing and congrats in the impending retirement...you lucky dog!

There's a great rv group right here in your home state - check us out at www.texasboomers.org or right here on irv2 under the rallies and groups section. We've got something going on almost every month and would love to meet you in person!

Sandy
