Full timers?

Would like to here from some Full timers. Wife and I are aggressively considering it. Would like to here some pros and cons, things to consider, realistic 5th wheel size and any additional valuable input.

Since you're in TX I would join Escapees they can provide you with a mailing and vehicle registration address as well as mail forwarding. They have many full timers and should be a good source of info.

For us the PINNACLE was an ideal rig since you could add the washer and dryer and it came with the residential fridge.

do it for yourselves and don't expect everyone in your life to understand. When we made the decision to sell our property and go full time 2 of our adult kids said great go for it, have fun and 2 asked what the hell are you doing that for.

I use the google "My maps" app. It allows me to research the path to my destination (RV camping near ????). Use multiple web sites to get personal comments on campgrounds. "My maps" allow you to place markers and add comments on contacts

Always call ahead (get that one on one with the manager), travel Tuesday thru Thursday (day light hours/ 5hrs as a general rule if possible, and "Steady as she goes" shipmate...
