Mom 2 kids and 3 dogs!!!

Well I'm crazy obviously! I'm going to full-time it with a 10 yr old girl who thinks she's a teenager, a lovable little 7 yr old boy( the golden child hehe) and 3 dogs who are in the midget family! Why u ask well I don't want to pay outrageous amounts of money in rent and we r used to living in small cramped places due to living in Japan for 5 yrs.. Great experience but since the hubster is retiring its on to the next adventure while he is contracting in the desert making a nest egg for the fam.. So we r on the road for 5 yrs, but hubby will have month long visits every so often!! And for him being gone so long from the family is really not that big a deal, yes we will miss him dearly but like I said he will be prior military and the babies are used to daddy being gone all the time. Here's how we see it 5 years in the desert a lifetime after that at home... I'm not sure he can handle a 24/7/365 with me yet!!! Lol... Don't be surprised if I ask a lot of questions for 1 I have never rv'd before. Haha... But I've been reading everything on here for awhile now I feel like a stalker..

Welcome, your at the right place for Rv advice. You may want to ad your Rv brand and model to your signature or profile so answers to questions can be specific to your situations. Your not the first to be in this situation so ask away an watch the replys roll in.

Welcome to iRV2! I fully understand your comment about the size of apartments in Japan, 2 years ago my DW and I lived in Tokyo for 6 months and my MH is larger than our Japanese apartment!

The knowledge on this WEB site appears to be without limit so please feel free to ask all the questions you like.

Lets see, two kids and three dogs; sounds like a perfect fit for a bunk house model.
Everyone gets there own space and the dogs get the couch, at least ours do.

I plan on staying in texas for a bit getting to know the rv and getting the kids acclimated to living in 1, then easing them into school work.. Lol...
And thank you for the welcomes...
