But I think I'm leaning toward the Tacoma 4x4.


We pulled a 16' Casita with a Toyota Tacoma 4x4 for 6 years. This truck was a 2.7 Cyl. With 5 spd manual transmission. No problems.

Full Time Eggscaping

Greetings All!
My wife and I are seriously planning to rent out our home in February, right after our Casita Independence hatches on January 27, 2017.

My math supports that we can save well over $1000 bucks a month doing this.

Health issues have motivated this decision, as I am currently working full time from home as the doc won't allow me back in the office at this time.

Time will tell if I can actually take the lifestyle on the road or if we will be hanging out here in town due to health insurance, etc. But the state of Texas is one big place with lots of things to see and do. Our state parks are spectacular!

Looking forward to this new and exciting chapter in our lives.

I like the idea of a dedicated fourm to this unique and fun lifestyle!

Hi. My name is Correna. I recently rented my home and i'm staying in my 1976 Trillium Trailor. I wonder if you have any suggestions, especially for the winter months. I'm trying to do it without plugging in. CRAZY, I know!

Hi Correna!
Well, we are not the resident experts as of yet as we do not yet have our trailer.
We live in San Antonio and will consider this to be home base as we do our best to follow agreeable weather. The portability of our housing is a huge bonus in this regard

My instincts would dictate that it would always be prudent to keep your water, propane and batteries topped off as as much as reasonable, cause you will have considerable discomfort without any of them.

Keep an overstock of non-perishables around so you have something to eat if your fridge takes an unplanned holiday, make sure you have appropriate clothing for your environment, and smile all the time, especially when things aren't going as planned

What are your thoughts young lady?

For those who don't know, Full Timing officially means your RV is your home and you don't have any other home. You literally live on the road, in campgrounds, forests, some land you own, a relative's back yard, parking lots, etc.

For the purpose of this group, likely Full Timer would be modified to include the Part Timers and Snowbirds, who may have an anchored home somewhere but leave it for months at a time to work or winter or travel elsewhere.
Id enjoy reading more about how people full time travel and explore the US and Canada. I am at the edge of retiring. But I work in real estate and can take trips any time I want right now. We just bought our Casita 17 and will be traveling from Southwest Florida to Maine this summer. Really looking forward to it.
