    Full Timer's Roll Call

    If you are a "Full Timer", here's a thread where you can introduce yourself(s) and tell us about your experience; i.e. how long you have been full timing, about your rig and tow vehicle, and any other info you want us "dreamers" to know about you.

    For all non-full timers, if you have a question for our full time members, start a new thread or if you want to comment on one of the post here, PM (private message) that individual (don't make me hit the "Delete" button ).

    We are currently full-timing in a Momentum 380TH. We sold our home and whatever "stuff" the kids and other family didn't want when I retired in July. We are currently at the Owners Rally in Elkhart and already picking up tips from others. We did learn a lot on the full-timing lifestyle from RV.net which has a full-timing and Toy Hauler section so that is one suggestion I'd make. We also have good friends that have been FTing for 2 years so have been able to glean some info from them. So far our Momentum has met our needs, and while we don't plan to be in extreme temperatures we did get 3 AC's installed and had tank heaters installed as well. Hopefully we'll be prepared for unforeseen and unplanned climates.

    Currently full-timing in our Solitude at the Scott AFB Fam Camp located just outside St Louis Mo. This 6-week stay is what we are calling our "shake down" stay since it is close to our dealer. We have identified a few minor things we are going to get fixed before we head to our next destination, Charleston SC in mid-October.

    We are in our fourth year of full-timing, in our Solitude 369RL since January 2014. Love the life! We do workamping 9 months out of the year, working the summer season somewhere cool (this year near Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming), going to Campbellsville Kentucky for the Amazon Christmas shipping season, and spending Christmas to April in Florida. Our Solitude has been a significant upgrade from our Cougar and has been a most comfortable rig to live in.

    Full time in colder temperatures for 6 weeks now , will see if we can ride out the winter, so far all is well except bedroom slide out and windows not well suited for colder weather, working on solution to cut down drafts, happy camping will let you know how solitude stands up through the winter months in Canada

    We've been fulltiming in west Texas for almost 4 months now. Bought her off the show room floor and was living in it a week later. Have had only minor issues so far and I work with my hands for a living so I have fixed everything myself so far. The only issue that I haven't gotten resolved is with the Thermostat going crazy sometimes, but waiting to hear back from GD on getting a replacement. Also had to adjust the kitchen slide but that was an easy fix. Overall I love our unit and if it weren't for the wife I would be content living here for very long stretches. But we are going to start house shopping soon, I am sure the two dogs would like a back yard too!

    We have been FT in our 369RL since March. Very comfortable. The only thing the DH misses is his "shop". Looking at the TH now, just haven't found one that meets all my FT needs. Hoping for more Momentum floor plans.

    Hi this is Hank and Charlotte from Chugiak Alaska. We have been full timing since the fall of 2008, we just purchased a Momentum 350M, in Georgia and drove to Southern California. Our tow rig is a 2011 Ram 3500 with a Cummins twin turbo, and a Pullrite hitch for the short bed! Love the fiver so far, just like any RV though it has a few issues, nothing that we can not fix. I am a retired RVIA/RVDA Master Certified RV Technician, and usually do my own servicing and repairs. Headed to the Quartzsite show next month to see what new accessories we must have!

    Hi Steve, I just noticed that you are also a Chief! I retired out of Grand Forks in 1991, and live in Alaska in the summer and travel throughout the lower 48 in the winter. We try to use famcamps whenever we can, but some of the places we visit do not have bases nearby. Would love to chat sometime, I see you are from West Georgia, we have a daughter in East Georgia, and stay out with the Army at Pointes West recreation area in the fall and the spring, usually spending a months each visit.
