    Hi guys, I am a 50yr old single woman and the plan has always been when I retire buy a motorhome and clear off to travel. I now find myself at a bit of a crossroad after a few life changes. I am looking to sell up and become a fulltimer. Are there any fulltimers in the Suffolk area who would like to meet up and let me pick their brains with a few queries? I work so the plan is to stay fairly close to work but when I get time off and holiday I can go explore. Any advice gratefully recieved. Many thanks in advance x

    I don't know about local FUNsters but there are loads of threads on here about fulltiming if you do a bit of searching.

    There are lots of problems, like an address and insurance, toilet dumps, power, water.

    Hello Welcome to Fun, we have a lot of full time and solo Motorhomers on the forum, the perfect place to do your research, regarding which motorhome to choose pay load/ lay out / insurance etc. be aware that you only get 5 free posts then if you become a full member £15 a year you will have the answers to all your questions at a click of the finger. Good Luck your not alone many have made the same decision and would not go back to bricks and mortar.

    Hi Joe666 :pink: I am not a full timer but do live in Suffolk. As already mentioned the Fun site is a mine of information, ask and someone will have a sensible answer.

    From a fulltimer. Yes there are compromises and problems with fulltiming, it is not plain sailing like being on a holiday. I only planned to do it for 2 years.... I am now heading towards 8 years and have no plans of stopping. I love the lifestyle and the downsides are no longer an issue just different ones to what I had when I had a house.

    Good luck if you do decide to do it. Ask as many questions as you want on the forum there are a bunch of us on here who are more than happy to help.

    Hi and welcome to the Fun from another full timer. :welcome3:

    Not in Suffolk but I full timed as a solo female for over 3 years. No longer solo but still full timing. :BigGrin:

    Any questions, just ask away. That's the beauty of the forums - you don't have to be 'local' to get answers. :Smile:

    Hi and welcome

    You will get alot of advice on this forum from members who have done it or are still doing what you want to do.
    I would work out your budget and where can you stay ie campsites cl or cs in the area you are working before you make the jump also what motorhome you want to buy.

    You will get alot of help from members just ask away

    Go for it I think many people will be trying this option as houses become too expensive I envy @ianthebuilder living in his van no bills mortgage etc. Im just a wage slave until the mortgage is done with then we plan to try long term travel fingers crossed.
