    Hello folks
    I'm currently renting an appartment in central Manchester and do shows nationally, though mainly in the north west, I want to full time in an RV primarily for financial reasons, sick of spending 8 grand a year to live here, dead money etc.. At the mo I have a conversion which I aim to sell now in march and get something big to live in, just need finance and the balls to drive a BIG UN. I must admit its my dream but it all looks too complicated, insurance, parking, etc. etc. I dont want to go down the road of having a run of the mill swift what ever like thousands of others, fresh off the conveyor belt, more something with character, a big black tour bus type thing would be Ideal.
    Anyways any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
    Oh PS I made a pilot for my own cookery / chat show situated in motorhome / RV but has yet hasn't been commissioned

    Help

    well march is here, the lack of work means I still have me panel van conversion, with damage now worth next to nowt, still stuck in a rutt of trying to keep the landlord and the bailiffs from the door. Having had a few unpleasant experiences wild camping over the winter and permenant illness all I seem to do is dream about full timing . I cant get any television companies to take my " drag queen entertaining in a winnebago Idea....UUGGHH I just need a few grand and sum one to hold me hand for a few days till I make the change but cant get either. Looks like its a life of living on benefits in sum grubby high rise for me the, how depressing eh .

    Hi Winnie, chin up mate don't give up, I am sure that one of the RV Dealers might let you film in a big posh RV for an afternoon, especially for a bit of free advertising. I can give you a list of dealers to email if you like.:Smile:

    Meanwhile you might find a film maker <here> or <here>

    best of luck:thumb:

    Hi

    Jims right Winnie. How long did it take Disney to get there. What he did not do was give in. JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter in a cafe she was so poor!

    Think of a bread and butter job to keep you fueled until you make the break.

    Fulltiming does not need to be in an expensive motorhome/RV. I know fulltimers who do it in a panel van conversion. I know others who use a caravan. One chap spent 2 years in a 16 foot caravan. He has now bought a £12000 super duper one and his first one, which is still in good nick he is selling for about £600.

    So for under a grand and for £250 a month you could be on the road

    unfortunately due to various health reasons I need a certain amount of home comforts, decent bed, loo, constant electricity etc. and I need a lot of space for my costumes etc, I do a drag act. Im trying for a loan at the mo but with this credit crunch I dont hold much hope. A buddy would help, sumeone to help me make the plunge...I got a big carpark if anyone fancies a week in central manchester ?????? 3 square meals a day ??????
