Made this video, my daughter, and one of my best friends both rejecting the idea of my living in my RV full time.
Anyone else have this issue?

Some tt are made for full time most are for seasonal use. 5th wheels are made completely for full timers are in the $75,000 range. The others for week end and summer camping are in the $40,000 range. Trailer Life Mag has many articles about the issues that people have  when full timing it and have a tt that is not made for constant use.My opinion is that most of the throw back TT are made for seasonal use.

Lol. Lived in a tent. Lived in a vw bus. Lived in a trailer, "it's an RV, not a trailer!!!"  All just part of that funny "life" thing. You don't need to explain it to anyone, just live it.

Good for you Roamingartist.  Sounds like a fun and rewarding adventure awaits you.

I'd love to try it for a year, or perhaps two.  "Oh the places you'll go" (Dr. Seuss).

I don't see any problem living in your TT full-time.  I do agree these trailers are built to be lightweight and probably for occasional use, "weekend warriors" going on 1-3 day excursions in them.  Stuff will break, things will fall apart.  You'll make some stops at Wallmarts and RV shops now and then.  It'll be part of the experience and probably bond you affectionately to your TT.

In college I had the wonderful life experience of owning a well used 1976 VW Campmobile.  We went everywhere together, broke down everywhere, often spent a few extra days somewhere waiting on parts.  I hated that van.  I loved that van.  I still miss her sometimes and am left with several years of very fond memories of the adventures both planned and unplanned.

Hope you have the time of your life.  Hope you keep checking in on this site and letting us share in your adventures.  Wooohooo!!!

I'm finding the opposite; most of my circle are excited for me to be full time RV'ing for as long as it makes me happy. I'll be starting my retirement in early May on the road in a Retro 177FK. I'm sorry you are not getting the same support.

After years of hearing me complain about slow moving RVs on the highway, ‘stupid granpas’ plugging up the gas pumps with their motorhomes, and dummies with generators bugging me in my tent, my kids were shocked and critical when I bought the Retro. Guess what? I was wrong! I love my camper and I’m having a blast spending my kids inheritence! Haha!

you know - we all worry about what others think/ but it is your life and if you are happy that is what matters- as you would want for them!

  Well, luckily other people ARE being supportive - especially this community!  Its high time I started doing what makes me happy, and the unsupportive people can look the other way!
