Dunner: What kind of hobbies would keep you from full-timing? You'd be surprised what folks bring along with them.

I have a machine shop in my family room and garage. 2 lathes, drill press, MIG, TIG welders, gas welder, band saw, grinder, two milling machines and a lot of tooling to go with it. Plus I have a Corvette powered sand rail that I put in my 20 enclosed trailer. It would take me years to sell off everything and go FW. Plus I don't have anybody to go with me. Essential requirement for going more than to the dunes 200 miles away.

As a former realtor and rental property owner, SELL IT! Unless you find that rare person who will care for your property as though it was theirs - maybe 1 in THOUSAND - your home will not appreciate as a rental. If you have to "own real estate", invest the sale proceeds in a REIT or similar investment. That will insulate you from dramatic Real Estate increases, and you will not be exposed to the myriad risks of a landlord in today's regulatory climate.

I would not keep the house as a rental...We've tried that before and it was trashed....Realtor never really did what they were supposed to...the income/loss in the taxes was not worth the hassle. I would not expect renters to take anywhere near the care that you would with your antiques.

It just sounds much easier (to me anyway); to sell it all...maybe give antiques you want to keep to family to 'hold' - either till you get back, or (more likely) till you realize you don't really want them anymore. Pocket the $$ in the bank for a rainy day...or put it into the new RV or supplies...
