New to full timing - 20-something honeymooners

Hello! We are both twenty-seven years old, just got married, and decided to sell our house (in a neighborhood where prices were skyrocketing), take advantage of our youth and travel the United States in a travel trailer (Cougar 28RLS) for a while before we settle down. We figured so many people wait until retirement to do this, but since anything can happen and we were able to make it work now, we wanted to give it a shot! We are about a month into traveling and look forward to checking out these forums to get some advice and share our experiences since we are also new to RV'ing!

Welcome to the forum. If I understand you are not working while on the road? Or do you have jobs that can work from home (your trailer), or by internet connection? regardless, enjoy your time and seeing the country.

Thank you! We did leave our desk jobs for the time being, but still have some real estate investments for some income and are taking some time to figure out want we want to do from here!

Welcome, enjoy your travel time while you decide what to do in the future, and don't be afraid to ask questions as needed.

Congrats on your escape! Make your list and go do it. Work along the way if you need to. You can always get more money, but never more time.
