Solo w/ My Motorcycle

Brand new to RVing.

30yo, solo, no kids, extremely flexible work schedule. Sold my house last year to spend more time traveling and after some advice from a friend decided to get an RV instead of endless camping, couch surfing, and hoteling. Ended up with a 2016 Thor Outlaw 37LS.

2 months in and I've been entirely boondocking (BLM/driveway/parking lot). I debated getting a tow vehicle, but so far my motorcycle and bicycle have been sufficient.

Thanks for having me...

Welcome. We often travel with just a bike on a trailer. My wife likes having the Ranger along if the weather is bad. So then we compromise.

IMHO, you have the best of all RV worlds. Not only do you have a work schedule that allows you to travel, but when you travel to places where it rains a lot you can stick a toad of your choosing on the back of your toy hauler and have the bike inside for when the weather is good. I'm trying to figure out the best way for us to carry a larger bike and a toad with the MH, you already have it covered.

Love your choice of camping. It has been our choice since we started with tents, canopies, and the like in the '60's.

Congrats!!

Steve

And, that's just about the best floor plan Outlaw ever made...just like the original and best selling 3611.

Oddly TMC modified it create to the 37BG for a 13'6" garage, but that lost the loft .

Feel free to add your ID here:

Safe travels

Yup I really love the loft bed and the fact that I can get to pretty much everything without pushing out a slide or dropping a bunk.

I also really wanted the laundry hookups when I was shopping around. But since I've realized how much I love boondocking and water/power are precious I haven't bothered to put a machine in. I may get one eventually but right now that's just an unnecessary luxury for one person.
