Anxious newbies

My wife and I have just purchased our first tt and are looking forward to becoming full timers we have owned park models but are looking forward to traveling south for the winters. I am a retired truck driver and my wife a retired nurse and have been talking about traveling for the last 5 or so years so here we go selling everything and becoming full timers any advise would be appreciated.

Welcome aboard!

Color me envious, I'm another 10 years from being in your shoes.

Since you are already familiar with towing and driving, my only advice is:


A good TT is more complicated and requires more care than any reefer you ever towed. Check the roof annually. The wheel bearings every 1,000 miles. The tires wear faster.

All the interior fixtures and fittings are "lightweight" versions of what you find in your home. Don't expect they'll last as long.

Develop a toolkit and spares for the things that go wrong on the road. At least enough to get off at the next exit.

Other than that, enjoy life on the road.

TV 2003 F-350 "Montblanc" - Housebroken chore truck

Sitting in The Cheap Seats.
And proud of it!

Welcome to the forum. My wife and I have not parted with our house but we live in our trailers anywhere from 9 to 10 months a year.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3 with tow package.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.
