    Full time in a 22MLE?

    Hi all Dan here, 22mle newbie and new to the GD scene. I've been camping recreationally in trailers and motorhomes for many years.
    I'm not sure just how do-able it will be but after seeing so many Nomads in Van conversions and the like, we've decided to full time it in a new 22MLE.
    Any suggestions, tips, tricks from people who have done it appreciated.
    Were not necessarily boondocking but might have to for short periods and I know some changes/additions will be necessary and plan to make them as needed ie solar, generators, etc.
    Anybody else here full timing in a 22MLE?

    Congratulations on your new 22mle!

    Can’t help with full timing but I seem to remember a thread from last year where a couple were living several consecutive months in it. If I can find it I’ll link it.

    Hi all, we have a new GD 22MLE coming at the end of April. Been camping for many years, but new to GD and this Forum. Looking forward to learning a lot from all the Pros here, lots of great minds, who know about GD and their product. Thank you, Jim

    Welcome to both of you. As for full-time in a 22mle why not. As you said, some do it in converted vans and some in tiny homes. Your signature doesn't state where you are from so I'm guessing there's no freezing temps.
