Planning for retirement

Hi all - my hubby and I just bought a 2008 Winnebago Destination 39w gas pusher. We plan to RV fulltime in a few years after we retire...tho we are both wishing now was the time for that! In the meantime, we will live in our tiny home on wheels and take weekend trips.
Looking forward to the advice and feedback from you seasoned folks.

Welcome and good luck! I bought ours in October 2012 with a planned retirement date of May 2014. I didn't make it, retired end of August 2013 and we have been enjoying our coach since.

We aren't full timers but we do spend several months at a time on the road.

Have fun and enjoy!

So you are already fulltiming...just parked and working vs retired and traveling??

Get debt free if not already.

And put money aside as much as possible because in a few years that 2008 may need replaced for reliable FT Traveling.

Welcome to IRV2

Glad to have you here with us.

Good luck making all your retirement plans. Starting early is a good idea and gets you wishing that day was now.

Happy Trails!!!
