New to RVing, planning on full time in 2016

Hello to everyone.. My DW and I bought a 99 Diplomat in July of this year, were going to buy another house but realized we didn't want to go back in debt again, will be retiring in early 2016. Have been studying a lot online and have a fair amount of work to do to our new to us RV, this is by far the most informative site I have found. Look forward to actually meeting some of the folks on here in the future during our travels.

Some like it some dont. Can the two of you live in 350 square feet for a long time without killing each other? Is this your dream or both of you? Will you have an exit stradigy?
Realize that this is a pretty old RV to start fill timing in. You might consider moving up in age before you hit the road. Paid for now is a lot easier than trying to pay for it on retirement income.
