Hello from Towanda, Pa.

We are Jean & Francis Montgomery. We are going to dive into full-time RVing next June. We are excited and a little scared all at the same time.
Any pointers from those who have been Rving for a while, would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

Jean

Jean, Welcome to iRV2.

You didn't mention , if you've done any RVing before , or already own an RV , or are still in the looking stage.

The members here in the forums will provide lots of ideas and opinions , we just need to know where you're starting from.

We have been RVing for about 10 years for about a week at a time We started with a 19 foot Pilgrim. Over the years we have graduated to a 32 foot Riverside trailer.

We have been rving for about 10 years. Just a week here and a week there. We started with a 19' trailer. We have graduated to a 32' trailer. We hope to travel along the east coast for starters. Our rv is a 3 season one.

Hello,
We are working on getting things in order so we can start full-time rving next June. There are so many mail forwarding companies out there. How do you know which one will work for you?

Also, when we go full-time, we are looking to do extended stays (2 months) and then move on. Is that what some rver's do?

We plan our summer stays, which is a week at a time, way ahead in March before the camp grounds are filled up. Do we need to plan way ahead and acquire sites for full-time rving?

I hope I am posting this right.
Thank you for any guidance in these areas.

Welcome! Laurie and I just purchased our first motorhome. She's retired but I have a few more years to go or at least that what she tells me.
