Smile Hi y'all

We are a couple in Nevada trying to get out on the road full-time. We have a new tow vehicle, a new 5th wheel purchased for full-time living, and are itching to feel the pavement rolling under us. We own our home in Nevada, and are in the process of divesting ourselves of all our possessions, vehicles and the house, except for what we will need for a MUCH smaller home on wheels.

We would appreciate any advice anyone has to offer about this process. We are alternately excited and overwhelmed by the process, trying to keep the end goal in sight to get us through.
We hope to make memories and friends in the next few years instead of accumulating more "things". Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Welcome! There is a lot of good information here regarding all of your questions. We are a couple of years out, but starting to ramp up to wrestle with these same issues. Probably pointed searches would turn up some great ideas. Good luck!

Would love to know what kind of 5ver and Tow vehicle you have.

James

We have a Dodge 3500 diesel 4wd and a Jayco Eagle Premier. We "graduated" from a Four Winds 23' motor home.
I will search for advice that I know must be out there & ask questions as they come up. Thanks for the welcome.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You're feelings about going full time are normal. Just get rid of all of your "stuff", hit the road, and enjoy. You'll do fine.

best of luck

Rick
