Our rig is our rolling time share.... It is so wonderful to wake up with a different view and weather conditions.... Here in Florida we can camp in the Keys on the water for $35-40 a night.. Where hotels would be $200. and We do not have to drag suitcases to and from. SRB

Totally agree. Brought a class A couple years ago. Had class C s for years for the simple reason, you can go where and when you want Great family accomdations for the kids. Missed the pools and hot tubes after snowmobiling in MI, but you can t beat the great lakes for swiming in the summer. Hope to go full time in a couple of years.

I agree. My wife and I decided against a condo because we have children on both coasts of Florida. A condo would be too restricting. We can spend a couple of weeks on each coast visiting the kids and grandkids, then head anywhere to see the sights.

You can temporarily make your RV a condo by buying a lot at one of the many RV Resorts around America. Get the best of both worlds this way, buy a couple lots and stay in the best spots depending on the season. You still have the ability to travel.

Good article well stated. I agree whole heartedly with the article. The freedom to roam and explore this beatiful country at our own speed is a precious freedom we have in living in such a great country.

So what s wrong with having both a condo AND an RV, like we have? With the condo s exterior chores completely taken care of, we can pack up the RV and leave anytime we choose. Also, we find the owners to be very friendly, much like those at RV parks

When we are in our mh we know who slept in our bed last night , and when the sheets were changed,cleaned the bathroom, and the luxury of taking a nap anytime on the road. If you don t like your neighbors or the weather, just move down the road.

When we first started RVing, we had bought a condo and a motorhome at the same time. In the 2 years we had the condo, we were only there 5 months. So sold the condo and have been full-time now 10 years. We workamp and enjoy the variety of jobs.

Condo living is fine for some people.But for thoughs who KNOW the benfits of RVing and the freedom it gives one. What more can one ask for.The old saying is, Try it, your like it Go to an RV show and ask a lot of questions.

We've been full timing now for three years and love the lifestyle. Before that we had been on the road for about 10 months out of the year but still retained our "home Base" Decided it wasn't worth the costs and sold out and now enjoy the ability to go where we want to go and stay for however long we want to.........with no worries about an empty house.

Traveling this great country and enjoying the ride
