Looks like this thread has gone unattended for a few months….so I will bring it back to life by saying: Hello to everyone.
I am a new member and a new RVer! All tips and tricks any of you veteran RVers can offer will be greatly appreciated and put to good use. ThanksSeptember 2, 2016 at 12:59 am #33259bigrageParticipant
Hi all :bye:September 2, 2016 at 11:21 am #33262JohnParticipant
A little update on my status. I’m in Eufaula, Ok on a small piece of land that I hope to put my motor home ( 89 Chevy Jamboree 28 ft) on asap. Until then I am living out of a 1995 Ford van and sleeping in a tent/cot. That is a cot with a tent made over it. I have a microwave, a small dorm sized fridge and two solar panels hooked up to two 6 volt golf cart batteries. Have had no real power problems except on stormy days when the panels can’t do their job and the batteries get drained. :negative: So now I need two more batteries (6 volt golf cart), two more solar panels and a small HF gen (got it) and a battery charger to charge up the batteries on the days the sun doesn’t shine. When the MH gets here it will be fixer up time and with any luck get on the road some next year.October 23, 2016 at 5:39 pm #37193StephanieParticipant
New to website and new to rving. Camped all my life as well as my husband (7/23/16). Previous owners of a small toy haller we used and abused. Trying to soak the knowledge of experienced and wise professionals. Only had our “honeymooner” a week and I am not sold that it is right for us. We are positive people and try like hell to make things work the best we can for each other but I fear we may be in over our heads. My husband is sold but I am not and continue to fear the worst. I felt the best way to reassure myself was to reach out and ask the pros. Did anyone struggle starting out? Did anyone think it wasnt for them? Ladies, was/am I the only one that thinks….he is positive so I must be to support him in my dream although I want scream “I surrender!”
Thank you in advance for…any advice.

Just starting out here. I haven’t even got my RV yet, but I know which one I want. I’ve been stuck in this apartment for 16 years and longing to be free from the city.
Downsizing right now. Donating lots of clothes this weekend, and figuring out what furniture can go right away, what I can sell, what I can give away, and what I can take.
Going to check out Class C’s in the coming week to narrow down the choice and see where things (like propane) are stored and how much storage I’ll have.
Right now the future is full of uncertainty and adventure.

Good luck on finding a motor home you like. :good: I bought my class C, over 12 months ago, but haven’t got it home yet because it idles but dies when put in gear. :Angry: With any good luck I’ll get AAA to tow it to my place 95 miles away. :Thinking:March 24, 2017 at 10:39 pm #45277
I’ll start by saying “Hi Everybody” Wife and I have been camping for over 25 years but that was always every other weekend after I got off work. Now that we are retired and finally got mother in law taken care of we are now planning our extended trips. At this moment we have a 1999 Keystone Sprinter 30 foot 5er. It is just right for us and our extended children, our mini dachshunds. We also are going through stuff and getting rid of it and also looking at having someone to take care of the home place till we reach the point where we can stay away most of the year.May 15, 2017 at 2:27 pm #46571Steve & SashParticipant
Steve here. My wife and I have been “full timing” on motorcycles since 2013. Then in 2016 we stopped and rented an apartment in San Diego to address some health issues. But after 6 months of that, we got the “A-OK” to keep going. So last month, we opted to buy a toy hauler to live in while still carrying our motorcycles.
We’ve since took on a beagle too “Mia”.
Been watching Ray on YouTube, and out of all the RV vloggers out there, we liked his content and style the best.May 15, 2017 at 5:04 pm #46578RayKeymaster

Thanks!! Welcome. :good:May 15, 2017 at 7:35 pm #46582Jim StreeterParticipant
Great site, I visit it every night. Thanks RayMay 16, 2017 at 6:03 am #46586Karen KelleyParticipant
I’m impressed! Not sure I could travel around the country on a motorcycle but then I’m a nervous driver at best.
Hubby and I went full time 2016 so we’ve been on the road just over a year and loving it!May 16, 2017 at 7:37 pm #46595
So glad to hear from everyone your love of fulltiming. Wife and I hope to be there shortly also. Bad thing about used is what you find once you get into it deeply. But do believe once I get done going through it and doing the upgrades with solar and such we will have something that will last us for many, many years. Thanks Ray for your videos. Yours and others who take time to post have helped me greatly in figuring out what I need to do and why. Thanks again :bye: :yahoo:September 14, 2017 at 1:01 pm #48132Stuart ChapmanParticipant
Hello to everyone. My wife and I purchased our fifth wheel this summer in preparation for going full time. We are going to spend the next 2 years fixing up our unit and preparing to full time. We have been camping forever in tents and a popup when our kids were young. Had our maiden trip 2 weeks ago and had a great time learning the ins and outs of our rig. We have 2 more long weekends planned before we have to put it away for winter. Already have a week long and 2 week long trip planned for next summer.

Welcome Stuart to the best little forum on the net. Well my opinion. Ray, the boss and owner is very gracious to all of us and along with many more keeps us informed well on different repairs and building different things. Myself, I have learned a lot and I read a lot of different forums and by far this one is the most informative and helpful.
