Departing California

Brand new to this forum. Thanks for the add. We have plans to sell everything that won't fit onboard and hit the road as soon as possible. We have our eye on a 2005 Newmar Essex that looks well kept. We have a home and it's contents to sell before we can depart. Looking forward to interacting with you all and absorbing as much knowledge as possible in the coming months as we prepare and provision. All the best - RP

2007 we left So CAL and hit the road FT

Told it/claim it/get it
Told dear friends SAME
Then SOLD everything via Estate Sale
Auctioneer advertised for 2 weeks....pre auction started at 8AM
Auction started at 9am---5pm
End of Day EVERYTHING was sold and gone

We even got an offer on house from person at auction
Lived along side empty house in our new 5th wheel for 2 months finalizing the sale

You do not need EVERYTHING
Basics.....and after 6 mos rethink what you have on board
Haven't used it.....get rid of it

Enjoy the new Life Style
It isn't being on's an adventure

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

Thank you, We are looking into estate sale companies, but I hadn't considered an auction. That's a fantastic idea Old-Biscuit.

I have never owned an RV. I borrowed a friend 40' Pusher a few years back for a weekend. Used to drive trucks when I was younger. Owned a 38' boat, so i understand the value of maintenance. Other than that this is all new to us
