Default Would you live in your Class B?

I actually know someone who lives in a Roadtrek 190...

He says his wife can't sleep well anywhere else and loves living out of the van.....

I love my Roadtrek RS Adventurous but the idea of living out it full time would never cross my mind for even a second... It's just too small for us.

What do you think???

We have a spinner interstate GT but is far as living in it,no, though in the 70’s I did live in my Westfailia for months at a time in Mexico and Central America.
These days I like the few comforts of a late model B.

I Full-time in a RT 210P.
I don’t live IN my Van.
I live OUT of it.

There’s a difference

Only the most dire circumstances would force us to live in our 2004 LTV FreeSpirit 210B. We're not large people, but the aisle between the sink/stove side and the bathroom/closet side is not wide enough for the two of us to pass. Having to cook in it would cause everything in the van to smell like last night's dinner or this morning's breakfast. Enduring a long stretch of rainy weather would have us climbing the walls.

I think we could full-time in a Class A or a good-size 5th wheel trailer, but that would require a rethinking of just how we want to live. My wife likes being near a small circle of friends. We both like living in a house with a yard and room for a garden, and feeling rooted in the city and neighborhood where we live. Maybe when we're retired our style of living will change.

Default Living “out of” the van

Good point, I would have to agree. I’m regards to living “out” of the van.

I'm planning on full timing in a couple years or so. Travato GL is the early leading choice, might start another thread on that...

The only thing that would keep me from full-timing is my wood shop at home. I do like to make stuff.

The issues rvsprinterguy mentions do not apply to our selfbuild in a 136" PM. It does not have an aisle--we can be doing different things at once without interference. There are ways to avoid food smells. And I LOVE rainy days in the van.

I hope you have a great supply of SUNSCREEN.......

The person we know is a volunteer for the state parks... gets a FREE place to live...free electricity and is usually at the beach in the summer.... don't know about winter ...

There's not much room inside.... even my RS Adventurous model is just a little bit larger at just under 23 feet....

Do you use the shower a lot...it has an aisle shower drain in the floor????

The Chevy Express is nice... just eats a lot of gasoline....??

Cannot imagine living in the RVs for most of the time, the space is also limited and have some inconvenience because of the insufficient lead-acid power supply at present.

Hi Monica. I see you're in China. I was in Beijing in June, and on a tour bus trip to the Great Wall, I saw a few RVs in the countryside.

I'm curious about whether you have an RV, and if so, what type?
