I would suggest to keep the sticks and bricks while trying extended times in the RV. If after awhile all us going well and the desire to go full time is still there, then make the break from the home base.

Howdy and welcome! The decision to sell a home and go full time is strictly a personal one. Each of us has our own comfort level so you need to decide what's best for you. Good luck.

Welcome and glad to meet you!

We jumped in feet first! Sold the house a few months before DW retired. Live FT in our coach. We could not be happier. You can have a "home base" from a coach. Just choose an area or resort and make that your "home base". All this means is that is where you return to occasionally. You will probably make your "home base" you new domicile. Check the regulations in the state you decide to domicile in for what you have to do to make this your new domicile. Each state will have slightly different requirements.

We chose Florida for our domicile and have Florida driver's licenses, Florida registrations for our vehicles, filed a Declaration of Domicile with the state, and registered to vote. Now Florida is our "home base" even though we DO NOT remain here FT. For example, this summer we are traveling to Colorado and will be volunteer camp hosts at a Colorado State Park to defer site expenses.
