Hello from So Cal

Good Day All, newbie here. Getting ready to full time it but have not purchased an RV yet, still 2 years away but doing a lot of investigating. From all the Fulltimers out there, what is the "perfect" size Class A for full timing? I am looking at all lengths from 30 to 36 feet, but not much over because I want to stay in State Parks everywhere. Happy to bee here..

Hi there, welcome to the irv2 forum. While we are not full timers I might give you some things to think about, we spent almost 3 years looking before we bought our 34 ft m.h. Look for things that you must have and things that are nice but are not deal breakers. Rent different sizes and different floor plans. Hope this helps, good luck.

Welcome aboard and sure glad you joined us. Can't say we're fulltime but at least half time and we have a 38 footer. Plenty of room for us and the two little critters but then everyone is different. You say you have two years and that's plenty of time to do some shopping. Attend some rv shows and look at the different floorplans that are available from the various manufacturers and then go from there. The floorplan is the most important thing. Good luck and hope to see you down the road.

Thanks for the Welcome

Thanks all who replied and welcomed me. I will probably get endless information at this web site and even shop for my dream RV. I am learning so much already and can't wait to get on the road in a couple of years and maybe meet up with all you nice folks.
