I need the benefit of your experience
by Bill Davidson
I have been day dreaming about full time RVing all my life and I am researching doing it for real. I have always envisaged not having a home base of any kind and boon docking full time. Am I being unrealistic? If so what is the reality? I'm only really contented if I'm driving somewhere and I find a vehicle a lovely quiet place to be. I have a Quebec driving license and my RV is registered in Quebec. I am not sure if a mailing address will be acceptable for medicare or other government agencies. How do others get around it?
I am restoring a 27 year old class B camper. I am a cabinetmaker, a furniture finisher, and a D.I.Y. mechanic. I am custom designing the interior, the bodywork is like a big steel armoir, and I am learning as I go with the mechanics. However, I am having trouble sourcing a generator that will be small enough to fit it under the floor and I want to be able to plug the RV into an external electricity supply e.g. at an RV park. I need a heating system (good enough for a Canadian winter) that isn't going to suffocate or poison me, and again, to be able to plug it into an external propane supply. I need a hot and cold water supply and under floor water tanks and water heater. I would also want to be able to plumb it in at an RV park. Lastly but not least, I need a waste disposal system that can be emptied at a public toilet or plumb in at an RV park. Does anybody know any after market suppliers of these things for a class B camper?
I'd really appreciate any help you can give me.
