New Fulltimer......

Hello, I am a new "Full Timer" about to retire in a few years. We are getting ready to travel through out the USA and so we sold our house and bought a 2012 Keystone Avalanche 38 FT Fifth Wheel. We have been living in it for close to a year now. We love the versatility and freedom to move and go as we please. Looking forward to looking at all the threads on this site.

Welcome and enjoy full timing. We are not there, about 80%. Brick and sticks is sold to a relative who is not in a hurry for possession, giving us time to finish downsizing from a 3 story house with several buildings which = more junk. We are looking forward to being able to be out on the road more. Have fun and enjoy.

Hi Fred! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the bunch!

Congrats on the new 5er and the upcoming fulltiming! I wish I could get up the courage to do that, but right now I still want the old S&B to come back to! Keep it between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thanks for the warm welcome, I have found that fellow RV'ers are the MOST friendliest and nicest people you can ever meet. What a great community and comrodary that comes with this life style. Thanks again and I am a Navy Vet as well.
God bless America!

Welcome to Full Timing! Its a great way of life. We have been doing it for 3 years. We stay in Alberta for the summer, as my husband still works, and then away we go for the winter. Vancouver Island has been our destination for the past three years but now its time for Arizona and some sun . We have a Keystone Montana 3400RL and we love it. Good luck!
