The best plan to full time RV has a stronger exit strategy than the entrance strategy.

LOL I like this post [emoticon]
If a die hard rv'er with tons of experience we know what we are getting into way more than someone who is a recreational weekender type.
So true how to be careful before jumping in and be sure you do have some strong exit plan in place if needed. The full time RV life is not for all even if the romance of it is there.

OP there are tons of great resources for getting a nice used motorhome! Have fun looking and finding your new home [emoticon]

We bought an older Beaver 6 years ago. I replaced ton's of things to have everything updated. Still a great coach and no payments. We are selling our place and going full time in June of this year! Good luck in your endeavors.

^Agreed.
If you’re looking x country for the right RV, don’t discount the PNW and here’s why.
There are a lot of people and $$$ up here which = a good selection of used big $ RVs.
Also the weather s ucks, so there are a much higher % of RVs stored under cover, out of the sun and rain for most of the year. This = less exterior wear n tear and damage from the elements. And even though it rains vehicles don’t really rust out up here because they always get a fresh water under carriage rinse!
