Default Full-timing in a Class B RV

Have you ever "full-timed" in your Class B or is "full-timing" in your Class B something you'd like to do?

If full timing is 12 months of the year, then no...but we have traveled for 5 consecutive months, and if we had to could probably do it full time.
Not sure the marriage could survive tho'.

I am truly impressed by the folks who have truly full-timed 12 months a year in a B ( I've seen a couple of blogs, etc.). Our longest has been 5 weeks, limited more by family circumstances than anything else.

I would love to see storage ideas, packing lists, etc. from anyone who has used their B for a few months or more. Of course the "stuff' will vary greatly depending upon where you're going and whether you stay in one place all the time or move around every few days.

We have met several couples that were full time in their Roadtreks. We spend 3 months each winter in Florida in ours. We usually take another long trip about 4 weeks each year.

My Fiance (will be married on the 20th) and I full time in a 97 Roadtrek 170. It is tight and we have quite a bit of stuff stored at my families place in Washington, but we love it. We stayed in it even when we had the option of a gorgeous room in my Dads house because we feel very comfortable and used to living in it. We use the shower often and make use of every appliance often. I really am amazed at just how comfortable these little rigs can be!

I think we needed an option to vote "My life won't permit it but Dang I wish I could!"

No I haven't full timed in fact I rarely get a chance to get out. I was looking forward for a long weekend in a couple weeks but work changed that. I work two jobs. It's a bummer, You have to work to be able to go and survive but it keeps you from going and enjoying life. I guess that is why work is a four letter word.

The Dream Year is our year off to travel across and around the U.S. Our primary plan is to...make our plans along the way. To meander and savor. Traveling in small vehicles -- a 21 foot Class B RV, a separate trip in a 26 foot motor-sailboat, with bicycles, and an inflatable kayak -- to large open spaces like state and national parks and the Intracoastal Waterway. Follow us on our journey. Barbara and Alan
G - make some time for yourself if you can. A weekend away for me feels like a week away. A month might feel like a year.

I think of Frank and maybe you can too. He was my "step father" although I was too old when he married my mother to consider him as such. Nobody worked harder than Frank and if you needed help Frank was there for you, no questions asked. Cancer got Frank before he could take a break. I like to think that maybe he joins me on my trips now. He would have loved RV'ing. Sorry for being so melodramatic. I wish I had the courage to go "full=time" and follow "my dream". If I think of Frank often enough maybe I'll actually do it.

I tip my hat to all who follow their dreams.

Wow, that qualifies for me but I'll leave it up anyone/everyone to choose what 'full-timing' is for them.
