Getting Started RVing
How does one get started living full-time in a recreational vehicle and traveling everywhere? RV life and travel sounds great, but where does one begin? Can you give me some step to take? What did you do?

How We Started Full-time RVing
This is what we did...
~ Bought a book on full-time RVing and read it.
~ Joined the Escapees RV club and read the information they provided.
~ Signed up for a mail forwarding service and started doing change of addresses.
~ Bought a used travel trailer that we could afford and that we could tow with a pickup that we already owned.
~ Worked in the trailer to clean it and make it nicer to live in.
~ Put our house up for sale and sold it.
~ Sold extra vehicles and things that we couldn't take with us and that we didn't want to pay to keep in storage.
~ Put some things in storage.
~ Gave notice to employers that we were leaving.
~ Moved into the trailer and headed out on our adventure.
If I was starting today, I'd probably get my information online. Back in 1991 when we decided to become full-time RVers, we didn't have that option.Go to the RV Life and Travel blog.
