Full Time RVers, Van Living, and Boat Living

Are you a Snowbird, living full time in your RV or trailer and following the warm climate? Do you travel the world in a half million dollar overland live-aboard vehicle? Is your home a converted school bus? Do you live in a van down by the river? How about a horse-drawn Gypsy Vardo?(that's gotta present some challenges!)

This group is for people who either live full time in some kind of vehicle, or plan to.

I've a month left before I hit the road for good. Need to get my vintage RV looked over and updated, if necessary, but all the RV service places are booked! Getting nervous. Anybody in Florida (I'm in Melbourne) got any advice? Need help/info!

Hi. Just bought my latest RV after a long hiatus. This'll be my first time full-time on the road, though. Looking for land in north Florida to establish as my home base. But even without it about to leave my rented apartment. Nervous. Hoping to start...

Would it be appropriate to post an RV for sale in this group?

Everybody has seen the Westefilia Volkswagen vans. Did you know that they were mostly copied from the first Sportsmobile vans, in the mid 60s? Youtube

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." -Helen Keller

If you are serious about Full time RV'ing then you have to be serious about downsizing your stuff. Storing stuff in a storage unit quickly becomes an expensive drain on your finances so it is best to sell, donate or trash the things you will no ...

You come across some interesting RV's on the road, the first pic is of a Mercedes fire truck conversion that a couple of Germans made for a 2 year tour of North America, they went from Alaska to Honduras and all points in between. In Palenque, ...

I'm planning to go nomadic within the year. I'm currently leaning toward buying a Ford Transit and hiring someone to build it out for me, with solar and a wet bath. Any recommendations appreciated!

If you've been dreaming about buying an RV and hitting the road to adventure but you weren't really sure if it was the thing for you or maybe you were a bit anxious about driving that big rig, then this pic is for you. I had never driven a motorhome...

I like to map out our travels and reviewing some of our trips I spotted this map for our travels in 2011 - it was our busiest year by a long shot. We retired from our home in Bermuda, flew to Toronto to drop of the few belongings we hadn't sold in a...

State Parks offer some of the best deals for RV'ers on the road, this is City of Rocks State Park in NM which I think was about $20/nt to camp inside these strange rock formations. Which State Parks have you stayed at that were a really cool ...

Would you do full time in one of these? The second would be the one for me, how about you?

I read this book a few months ago and found it to be very true to the realities of living on the road, it also reminded me of some of the full timers I met and how they made ends meet. For us it was an adventure to go fulltime RVing for a few years ...

When travelling in our 34' Winnebago Chieftain I kept a log of where we had been in an old paper road atlas. Here's our journeys over several years. I think it amounted to a little over 36,000 miles all told.
