What a great way to learn and socialize with a community of other Rvers who love the full time RV lifestyle!



Our decision to go full time started because Don's job kept us moving frequently which was very expensive constantly having to buy and sell houses.

Together, we decided to ditch the idea of a traditional house and all of the maintenance, expense and time involved with it for a "home on wheels". We started full time RV living. The decision turned out to be a great one for us. If the job relocates we can just hook-up and take off which happens often!

Our Story...

We have more free time to travel, have reduced our expenses and we are enjoying the full time RV life which is a less demanding lifestyle, that we LOVE!
