Newbie to Forum

Hi!
Just checking in as a new member. Been camping in tents, trailers, motor homes and 5th wheels since I was in grade school. Now have a 29' 5th wheel and am looking forward to retirement in a year or so and perhaps living in an RV full time. I'll be looking for lots of advice as to the pro's & con's of this lifestyle.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Welcome to IRV2.... if you head towards full-timer lifestyle you will be joining an ever growing population of persons moving from brick and mortar into a nomad life style. You get to lose the anchor seasonally or just find a place that you like away from the mayhem. Some of the RVers....have decided to move onto PUBLIC LAND (free grazers), others have bought small bits of land in the Lord's country and run everything on solar power. You get to find your niche.

Welcome to the gang! Sounds like you bring a lot of experience and could offer advice on all styles of "wheels." Glad you're onboard, and good luck with plans for retirement.
