If this is an option that you still find intriguing after all this odd advise, then it is still worth exploring. I recommend sliding on over to the full timer forum and asking there. It seems some posters here don’t realize that full timing is a thing.



Buying a RV, having towed to a park, and moving a family into, is not what most here consider full timing.

Full timing very often includes seeing the country and meeting people along the way. Some families that do this will home schooling their children. The lessons they learn visiting National Parks, monuments, museums and other such things are very educational.

This OP is planning something that we would not normally call full time RVing. He is not planning on a TV to move it.

My guess is that the OP came on to this forum for answers to questions related to RV brands and models...wait...that's not a guess because its exactly what they said. Nowhere did the OP ask for life advice, family counseling, or a lesson on economics. Yet, similar to many other threads, those responding assume they know more than they do and use that false knowledge to "preach" at the OP. If they wanted that advice, they probably would seek it somewhere besides a RV forum.


I agree 100% Lots of judgemental people on this forum.



As we have all traveled the country in our RVs we have most likely all stayed in a park where families were living in RV's...This life style in not going to give a child a leg up in life.

I don't think any of us are in the position to unequivocally say that. There are many families all over the country that are doing this exact same thing. I'd rather raise my kids in a pop-up camper going from campsite to campsite vs. having to live in some of communities that exist in our city. Sure it would get a little cramped, but I'll take that any day over the automatic drug and crime exposure that is guaranteed to happen to children who grow up in these bad neighborhoods.

As a side note, I know a man who grew up in a large family...dirt poor and barely even had clothes to wear. He lived and slept on the family's porch. All he ever wanted to have was a house with AC. Fast forward 50 years and he's one of the wealthiest people I know. If he would have had even as good a situation as being raised in a camper, maybe he wouldn't have had the drive he did to become as successful as he is.

Lots o good advice here,Id just stay in the house as it will always be worth more then an RV and work hard to pay off the debt.
