One other item: Be debt free when you start to fulltime!!

We have never been real “responsible” with our money. We spent what we made. Too many toys. It is the best advice ever.

We bought a less expensive camper than we wanted, and a late model used truck rather than new, but we were debt free when we started. We are still debt free. That is not to say we don't have bills, but a no installment loans, no credit card debt.

We don't have much, but what we have, is paid for. This was the best advice we ever received and for once, I was smart enough to take it.

Advice would be based on what kind of camper/trailer you are using, as well as how long you intend to be on the road.

Drive in smaller chunks and don't get over tired in one day or you won't be able to catch up. Enjoy the trip....

Taking a long trip with my 30 foot travel trailer and was wondering about heating the trailer with just the furnace that is comes with. Should I purchase a small floor heater also?? This is our first trip so a little green. Thanks
