Another New Full Timer to join the ranks

Hello wife, Beth, and I are getting ready to commence full timing in our 2016 3160RL about mid August. We are both 70 and newly retired. We are looking forward to the adventure both with excitement and a degree of nervousness. We are pulling our unit with a 2013 2500 Chevy diesel. Helpful hints in becoming full timers will be greatly appreciated.

Beth and Ron Schensky

This lifestyle is different and very enjoyable. Most of us found we took way too many clothes for this lifestyle. Also, be very aware of the weight you are adding to your rig. We've been at it six years and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Welcome to the Full Timers Club, your membership packet will be in the mail soon. Remember one thing, you don't have to see and do everything in the first year.....Relax and take your time and enjoy yourself!
