You need a lot more comfort when you full time with TV, phone, refrigerator, etc. I see remarks like why do you need TV but believe me when you full time you need a lot more. I have done both and there is no comparison. You need to part time before you full time. When you full time you have all you own with you and you learn to do with electric skillet, slow cooker, outside cooker, etc. I love it but feel it is not for everyone.

We did weekends and short vacations in a 21 foot class C for 15 years. OK for what we used it for but the lack of space and comfort items gets old pretty quick.

So when we decided to start full timing it we bought a 40' diesel pusher. Has everything we could ever need (notice I didn't say want) and we love it.

One thing, you will find that you start out with a whole lotta junk you don't need and will most likely never use and end up off loading a lotta stuff the first year.

We've been fulltiming for over six years now, and every year between Christmas & New Years we empty out the bays and closets and throw away things we haven't used in over a year. Someday I think (hope) we'll get to the bottom of the pile!

Actually we have met many full-timers that do not have "all they own" with them. Many have things at relatives' homes or in storage facilities. We have met some that put a storage building on a relatives lot or even buy a lot to put one on. Summer clothes go there during the winter and winter clothes are there during the summer.
