    Welcome.
    We've got all sorts on here, all shapes,sizes and temperaments.
    We only spend 6 months in the van. Does that make us merely part-timers ?
    We all have one thing in common.... We prefer not to spend too much time on campsites.
    To the pure in mind, all things are pure

    I am a Full Timer in waiting in about 12 days time

    There are many experienced Full Timers on here and loads of advice and guidance (I have benefited a great deal by their advice and guidance)

    see picture
    I think that the distinction is a bit arbitrary.

    Once you've been away for three or four weeks, you need to have worked out all the long-term issues like laundry and haircuts, doctors and washing the van.

    Once you've been away for three months you've worked out the issues related to leaving a house empty for a long time.

    Once you've been away for a year, you've sorted the insurance and MOT issues.

    Only when you give up the home address are you really full-timing, but that's a pretty brave thinng to do. Not being on the house price spiral, coming back off the road gets harder, but one day most of us will need to for health or family reasons.

    Personally I guess I've spend about eight years living in my motorhome, but never more than a couple of months at a time, and normally only about three months a year, so I'm certainly not what I'd call a full-timer. And somehow I don't think I want to be. I could do easily enough, but why? I like my home.

    We are (sort of)

    We use MH full time for 6 months (UK summer) and live abroad for the other 6 months.

    House is sorted in that it is let thus fully insured and maintained.

    Mail etc is forwarded Doctor all OK

    MH insurance is hefty (Over 1000) and we store it in the winter (300)

    Works for us at the moment.

    In south of England CCC CS mainly
    Abroad Aires/Stellplatz and wildcamping
    We toured Norway Finland and Sweden for 3 months and paid for less than 15 overnights !
    Planning Ireland (NI and ROI) and Scotland for 2017..... hoping not to use too many campsites but when we do aiming for about 10 a night
