Happy Anniversary to us....1 year as full timers!!!

1 year ago today we finished moving everything into our 30' TT that we had just bought the previous month. Closed on the sale of our house the following day. Officially retired 2 weeks later on June 2nd of last year. Walking out of that building with my DH was such a freeing experience...it was incredible!!! (We both worked at the same place, different departments) Then hit the road the very next day June 3rd.

We had never owned any kind of RV before. When we picked up the travel trailer in April we took it out for a weekend camping "learning" experience! LOL

We've owned it just a little over a year now. Knock on wood we never had to take it back for any warranty work. A few minor things came up but nothing that DH couldn't fix.

No regrets so far!!! And yes....we're happy campers!!!!
