Hello everone. Well I made the plunge last week. I left my home state of Maine and made my way across to North Dakota with my 26' fifth wheel to work for the summer. Never lived in a camper fulltime but finding out I'm really enjoying it. I was lucky and found my camper real cheap. No major issues yet. The best thing I think is I can just hitch up and go. Also not having a lot of room made me have to get rid of a lot of "stuff". That was nice. I was not sure if I would like it at first. It was hard but I don't think I will go back. Its nice to say my house is paid for and its on wheels. Can't wait to see what's ahead.

Well the summer went well. Living at the lake was awesome. But now cold weather has set in and forced me to move out of my camper. Still hope to go south. Will wait and see.

Luke, is that you?!?
by: Jim McDermott

Looch! Find me on Facebook. I don't want to leave my number on here. I'm still in Boothbay Harbor and transferring next summer. I lost touch with you when I lost my phone and contacts.

Tire
by: Anonymous

Sometimes it isn't the life of Riley. Wednesday was one of those days. I needed to get the roof re-coated, the breaks and the bearings check, and was taking it to the shop. Between Tylertown and McComb Mississippi, where I had purchased it 4 1/2 years ago, I had a blow-out, on the front left tire. When the tread separated from the tire it destroyed the underside of my campers, fender well, the sewer compartment and lost all my sewer hoses. I waited 2 hours to get help only to find out it would be $112 on the spot. You have to take the bitter with the sweet, and you will find the sweet out weighs the bitter.

Best of luck to you. My house is on the market, and as soon as it sell I hope to joining the ranks of full-timers!!!

The Cheap Cost of Full-Time Camping
by: Ricky and Linda

April 2nd, we celebrated our 4th year as full time campers. We have a 36' 5th wheel 07 Montana. We love our new life style of becoming minimalist. It is hard to see everything you own go down the driveway at less than 1/2 what you payed for it, but once you come to the realization that all that stuff was just that, stuff. We now can save money. It costs more money than one would think, to run a house-whole. If you go with CampClub USA, and other club discounts. You can end up saving money. Monthly rates at private campgrounds can save you over weekly rates, even if your not staying the full month. You can't buy more stuff, without getting rid of old stuff. The lighter you travel the better fuel mileage you get.
