Newbies from north Texas

Hey, everyone! Glad to have found this forum. Looking forward to learning many things about rving. My husband, TJ, and I are planning on purchasing a fifth wheel and start full time rving when we retire. We have a couple of years yet, but plenty of time for research.

If you would like to post to my thread about what fifth wheel you have if your are full-timing, please do! There seems to be many good units out there, but it sure is hard to decide. Wish I could take all the things I like in each one a put them together!

We plan on being up north from April thru the end of October and the rest of the year down south.

Hope to hear from some of y'all here!

Hi Kalena, welcome to IRV2. If you have questions, this is the place to ask them. There is fulltime forum further down the page that will be a great source of information. We have been fulltiming for a year now and have enjoyed the experience. I am sure you will too. Good luck finding the right RV for you.

Kalena, welocme to iRV2. You are welcome to drop in and visit at any Texas Boomer campout. A lot of the places we go do ahve a few cabins for rent, so you can vivit without an RV.

People in the Texas Boomers would be happy to show you a few rigs and some of do ahve what is considered a full time rig.

If you are looking for a true full time and 4-season rig, be forewarned, they are heavy and it take a properly equipped f350/3500 or a F450/4500 to tow one and stay within the manufacturers limits.

Decide on a trailer first then get the truck suited to that size trailer.
