    Hi newbie here just found this site , were looking at selling up when our daughter heads off to uni in a year of so , waning to sell up the house & live full time in a fifth wheeler ! We have a camp site not far away from us & they will let us live on there permanent ! We can still travel to our jobs , also we have a tourer which we use every weekend & have made loads of great friends , the campsite can store our van also so we can continue using it as & when :)
    Anyone else done this ?

    hello there, been fulltime for 7 years now, one bit of advice keep the fact that you have a site to use permanent to yourselves before you know it you'll have the local council on your back as well as the site owners, another is to try and retain a residential address even if it's a family members, (that you can use ) you will almost certainly need a postal address for driving licence, banks etc and without an address there could be difficulties getting vehicle insurance which I understand can be hard enough anyway with fifth wheelers, of course you could get fulltimers insurance but that is normally very expensive. Oh and make sure any fifth wheeler you consider meets UK spec especially regarding brakes /handbrake issues, other than that get to it and start enjoying the way of life, we wouldn't change a thing.

    if you plan on siting the 5er on a campsite long term and use a touring caravan to get out and about then i would suggest you buy a static caravan/park home.

    tyres and suspension will suffer if stood in one place for a long time
