Living FT in a TC?... even though I might tire of it. Just knowing the living is vacation style generates a real soft spot.
I find it difficult to sleep in strange beds and rooms, that's one thing, but, the feeling of having all the weight lifted from everyday life
Since 2008 .

YES ! It is a sanctuary from everyday routines. Very relaxing area to read, listen to the radio or have the grand kids help to make a lunch, and sit and decide where we are going to next summer or sometimes just play a game. Even in the winter it only takes a little while to warm it up. The house is great... but no area in it is as relaxing as being in the TC. A lot of the enjoyment in owning a TC is just knowing you have it there , so you can think and dream of places you'd like to travel to.
Just out in it on Sunday drinking a cold "Keith STONE" listen to the local country station..
Have solved many troubling issues political and technical sitting around and in my camper and tending to a "Keith STONE"
Oh and a Bud of mine does the same!! Sometimes we STONE each other.
He has an ORANGE one!!!
I tell folks that our camper is nothing but a portable cabin that we carry with us...Up in the mountains, out at the coast, in someones driveway, at relatives. When traveling it's our Diner, bathroom, rest area. Just have to use your imagination.

I will be soooooo glad when our AF finally gets up here to AK.
I have my Sprinter Van, had it for 6 years; it's a great van, but no sink, bathroom, water, that kind of stuff. I still hang out in it, it's very comfortable. Plug the ship to shore in, cut the AC on, or now a days I fire up the Webasto and within minutes its nice and toasty in there.
Yeah, I'll be so glad when our TC gets here. I told DW that I was gonna take her to work and hang out in the parking lot in it, she could come visit me during her lunch break.
I feel better now... I thought I might have had a problem ...because I regularly make coffee and have breakfast in my camper while off- loaded at home.. I simply cannot get enough "camper karma".. It is good to know I am not alone..
I suspected but never realized how much vacation property came along with the TC when I got it.
That is what has been stopping me from buying a cabin or an acreage. In the TC things can change with a few minutes driving. Don't like the neighbors, hit the road. To wet? Hit the road. Dogs barking? Hit the road. Fish not biting? Well some things don't change
I had the TC out the other day with my boys. Had a spot for lunch, to rest, to get away and at the same time drove downtown to a meeting and still had all that with me.
