Need sage advise for newbies considering FT

New member to IRV2, looking at retiring next spring and want to go FT. Need advise on avoiding bad decisions on selling bricks & sticks and moving on with our life. We just purchased our first new to us MH. Love the room and "Roughing it Smoothly" life style on the few trips we have made. Three have been back and forth to camp RB to address a few issues and some upgrades.
Hope we can gleen some "do s" and "don't s" from this forum from people that have been there, done that!!
We love this forum and all the wonderful responses members so freely give.
I hope to meet some of you down the road.

Safe travels all

Howdy and welcome Robert and Bessie!

I'm afraid your question is a tad too broad for me - not sure how to answer. I don't think there is a right/wrong way, it varies for each person. I know it's a mad rush to the finish line but I suppose my only bit of advice is to enjoy the journey. Don't abandon your RV whilst getting rid of stuff - get out and use it. Then spend time fixing/updating the things you want to change. Some things are much easier while sitting at your S&B's than once you are on the road.

Welcome and congratulations!
My advice:
Less is more on board! If you have too much stuff it's hard to get to everything.

Lubricate the levelers and slide outs often.

Investigate service repair shops before trusting them!

Last but not least, encourage everyone on board to at least learn how to drive the coach in the event it's needed.

Safe travels!
