Would you ever consider a life of full time traveling, living in a large motor home/travel trailer?


Here is the scenario. I will soon have all the details worked out for a job that will take me to a different U.S. location every 13 weeks. I plan on selling my home to my older son and living full time on the road. I will still have a home base with my son whenever I want, but for all practical purposes, I will live on the road. I know there are many who do this and they seem to love it. I have traveled extensively before, so this will not be a totally new experience for me. I like the idea of moving around and seeing a lot of the country. Could you live like this or would it get old?

    You are a step ahead of me if you have an RV. Hopefully I have something by fall.

    I cannot even imagine that scenario. Twelve people living in a motor home? I'm planning on getting a large motor home or travel trailer just form me alone. But it is an appealing lifestyle to me and I look forward to getting started.

    Hi freecampingaussie, we talked a few months ago. I believe you are heading to Europe and Canada, if I remember correctly. The job I want is taking longer to materialize than I planned, but it will work out. Thanks for stopping in. Safe Travels.

    Thanks Lazy Parrot. Enjoy life in the van. I may need to do something like that briefly before I get something bigger.

    I feel the same to some extent Lynn. Each of my job assignments will be 13 weeks long. I can take a break between, so I could come home. Also, if I have to go into very cold weather, I may not be able to use the RV, so I'd get a break there also.
