Full time RVing

An update :

My wife and I are enjoying our new RV so much we are going to do something crazy! We just got done talking to a realistate agent and are putting our house up for sale. Full time RV here we come.

We still will have to work but we found a beautiful RV park for long term tenants not far from us. We figure by selling the house and paying off all our debt along with saving for the next 10 years, we will be set to travel the country and retire. Yep a 10 year plan.. Can't wait!!! Are we crazy? Signed the papers with the agent today to list our home.

The wife and i have talked about this but we think we would keep the house. With future possible health and not being able to travel we decided for us we would not like to have to find a house and possibly have to try to find financing at that age. Our thought is to travel then be able to return home when we want. We have children that could take care of the house for us. We think this would work for us but everyone's situation is different so do what works for you.

The main thing is enjoy this time on earth while we are here.

Preston, you will be the envy of a lot of people here on the forum.
Some years back I started a thread on retirement. There was a lot of interest and posts on it.

Now keep it in mind I'm not trying to throw any water on your plans. I'm going to put up the link to that thread so you and anyone else that is interested can read it. Maybe it will provide another way of looking at the subject.
What ever you do, I wish you the best of luck, and a ton of happiness.

We retired in early '07 and hit the road for 12 years, never staying in one place more than a month at a time. Wouldn't trade the experiences for anything. We're still going, but now have a Home Base and only travel a few months at a time.
