Wanting to Rv

Hello. I'm new here and looking into buying an RV for Fulltime RVing in the next 2 years. My husband and I are trying to do as much research as possible in advance to make the best purchase as possible. I am currently a SAHM with 2 little boys; we have a 22 month old and a 2.5month old. We would like to school them from the RV when they get older. Are there any other FTRV'ers with children? We have been looking at class A diesel pushers. Thanks for letting me join the forum and I look forward to learning alof.

Sarina,


Welcome to the forum! You have come to the right place to learn what you need to learn. Do not forget to check out YouTube and the many videos on dumping your tanks, fixing your furnace, cooking in your MH, and everything you can think of.


Check out the bunk bed models for the kids. Some of them kind of make a room that can be shut off a bit.


Good luck, don't know about others doing this with kids but hopefully someone will chime in. Lynne

Welcome and good luck in your search.

Take your time and check out a bunch of different floorplans. Many floorplans are similar between brands so once you find the layout that will work for you it is a matter of finding your favorite brand.

Bunk models will be more difficult to find as not everyone makes one.

Educating on the road will be a wonderful experience for everyone.

You'll definitely be doing some research, and on a variety of subjects.

We encountered the Kellogg family last fall in a Tennessee state park:
Homeschooling Archives - Kellogg Show

If they can full-time and homeschool with 12 kids, you should be able to as well.

Good luck!

Welcome!!!
We recently purchased a MH after reading tons here. STUDY STUDY STUDY!!! Take your time...do not rush. We got lucky and had a somewhat honest dealer. Many are not. I have learned so much in a short time. We have done 2 trips and are ready for more!
This forum is my favorite.
Once you find the unit you prefer...flood plan, options, learn all you can about it. I would have lost thousands if I had not. My dealer acted as if they knew nothing about mine...big red flag there.
Enjoy the Journey...
