How many of you are NON full timers in 40+ foot rigs?

I'm just curious as to how many people buy a larger rig for weekend trips and maybe 2-3 week or two trips per year. It seems as though most people who buy 40+ do so only after committing to full timing. Is this the case?

We got a 40 based on going full time next June. Using it now to figure out all the ins and outs and setting up basement storage

We have no intention of going full time but why not. 38/40 is just comfortable.

Well we have a 45ft and will wind up having used it about 10-11 weeks this year and will probably be more like 16-20 next year. (Next year 3 mo. in FL then some trips.)

SO not full time but a bit of snow birding and travel some short trips some longer. Not sure how you want to class that.

Ours is 40' and full time was not part of the reason. Just like the extra room especially when our girls are traveling with us. Still several years away from retirement and then we most likely will not full time but definitely will spend more time out on the road. Would like to trade up sometime and still debating going larger than 40'.

We're on our 2nd MH, 1st a 39 and 2nd a 40'. Kids are young yet and we don't full time. Spend about 25 to 30 days a year in it.

X-2 We also have had 2 40' motorhomes, and we use it about 50 to 60 days a year, still will be working for 5 years, then will use it 3 to 4 weeks at a time. We just like the space and comfort.Regards

We've had our 40' for 5 years now, right now we are in it about 4 months in a year. We will probably go to 6 months, but I don't see full time in our future. Wish we had more slides.
