    I would love to do this for a year or two but I have a big family to support. My question is how do y'all keep money coming in? I feel like that would be our (my family's) biggest issue.

    Too funny – When you were watching the eclipse from Quartzite, my sister and I were west of Landers, CA, just out in the desert off hwy 62, about 45 miles from Quartzite. We were just down the mountain from your next destination, Joshua Tree NP.

    The really cool thing was that as the Moon was going through the phases, I turned 62. Best birthday ever! Even the Cosmos did a show for me. I saw the same eclipse at 61 and at 62.

    Oh, and I am here because I am coming into money that I figure I could get a used RV under 6 grand and stay on the road for a couple months and then return and sell the RV. I have about five million miles driving around the USA either as a trucker, cab driver in nine cities or just hundreds of thousands of miles personal driving.

    I figure if I can live in a big rig 28 days straight I should be able to handle living in an RV. I will have a friend with me. He is about 30.

    My husband and I have been renting rooms for over three years after losing our mobile home. We have been trying to figure out how to move closer to my parents who live in Florida by the coast. The big problem was most mobile communities where they live are for 55+ which we are not. Then my husband recently suggested getting an RV and living full time in a campground until we're able to get a permanent home. At first I thought the idea was a bit crazy but now we're seriously considering it. Our goal is to save for a good year so we can buy a used RV and relocate our stuff south. Unlike most full time RVers, we are not selling our household stuff, we'll put it into storage like we've been doing for over three years. We always thought it would be cool to own an RV and go traveling. Since we've been kind of nomadic for over three years, we figured why not try this out…

    Need your help!!, ……I've got a 100 watt solar panel kit from Harbor Freight and I'm only wanting to run my lights and maybe TV, DVD player and by watching your videos and making that chart showing approximately how many amp hours I will be using per day, I was wondering if you could tell me what size Pure Sine Inverter would be sufficient, I'm looking at approximately 136-140 AH per day , I've got 2 deep cycle 92 AH batteries and again I'm not sure what size inverter I would need., Would one battery be sufficient?…. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have some questions for both of you but anyone who has info. I'm gonna tell it like it is so that you understand us.
    My wife and I are waiting ever so patiently on our coach to be finished in its build. We will also be full time at this and have sold our home to do it. We are almost 50-years old and have NO intention of doing the activities you both do and in fact due to so many ailments and both of us being legally handicapped our vision was to do the RV park thing. I have no intention or interest in travelling the USA or even leaving the state we live in. We simply sit on our fat asses and watch TV day and night. We want to remain in a basic 300-mile radius from the major city we are close to. To go even a bit deeper I have no interest in even moving the coach but every 6 – 9 months at the most.
    So now that I have said all of that we order a coach that has everything basically in it and won't be much different than being home. I have found that you can't really pre-apply to rent a space in an RV park. What I have found is they want you to take a space that's available, pay the regular nightly rate and then the first day you are there is when you apply to do the monthly rate. I have found that (for some dumb reason) they run credit and such kind of like renting an apartment. I guess they feel it necessary to rent a parking space (I can get as many storage units as I need with nothing but need credit checks for a parking space).
    So what is peoples experience with that? Is it easy to get approved, not easy????
    I ask because I haven't come across any info regarding this. We never want to boondock. Our coach is 40 feet long and will require me lifting a finger to move it. We have the largest generator we could get but again it's not for what we need but instead, I wanted it in case we lost power at a park or something. I got the larget one because I was told you can't run all of the air conditioning with the smaller Onan units. I want to be able to use and run anything wither on shore power or generator.
    Does anyone have any info on how hard it is to be approved for an RV space if you are doing the long term thing? is it hard, easy?

    My wife and I are getting ready to open a non asset company. It has a very high pay rate potential. Do you think full time RV's would be interested in an opportunity like that?

    My wife and I really enjoy your videos! We are currently planning on starting a full time rv life. Getting rid of stuff and shopping for an rv. Plan on heading out in the spring of 2019. Heading west from Missouri first. Both are retired and very anxious to go. Boondocking is the way we intend to go the majority of time,
