    Would I be right in thinking that you full timers pay storage fees for stuff you do not want to tote with you? Or is everything thing you own in the motorhome?

    We've distributed some stuff around friend's houses and sheds but only things that'll fit in "really usefull boxes" everything else is in the van.
    We found it relatively easy to dispose of stuff via charity shops and tip as we really want to fulltime and aren't attached too much to "things"!::bigsmile:
    Mind you - we haven't been to a weighbridge yet!!!!!:ROFLMAO:

    No. Everything we own is in the van.

    Except for a Welsh dresser my dad made us - wouldn't fit. So it's in his basement.

    The 90% of accumulated lifetime 'stuff' we dealt with by making it a condition of sale of our house that the buyer inherited it all. Including the cat! :ROFLMAO:

    Hi
    We should be fulltiming soon, apart from a couple of small boxes, being left at our daughters house, everything that does not fit our new life will go, we did it before, we can do it again!!!!
    A short time ago we had to sort out my Mothers 90years of crap, she was also looking after her parents 90years of "belongings" , That caused us problems with our health and our business, we have no intentions of putting our kids through it!!!!!
    If you consider putting stuff into storage, look at the cost and the high risk of damage.

    You are right Nigel. we moved 4 years ago, we took stuff out of the attic that had been in the attic of our old home for 10 years and put it straight into the attic here:Doh: We see the boxes once a year when we get the Christmas decorations down, There's tons of the stuff... thinking about it I will let the kids sort it.::bigsmile:

    Belongings

    Hi

    When I moved out of the house last December - blooming hummer, almost a year has gone, I had things stored all over the place. This was a sort of back up plan in case I decided to return to bricks and mortar.

    I still have a few bits dotted here and there, and this thread has prompted me to sort it out - tomorrow.

    With the new changes being introduced re healthcare in France, we've been seriously considering fulltiming in a motorhome instead:Eeek: Nothing imminent, but it is an option.

    HOWEVER!!!! The big problem is our "stuff". MOH has 40 years-worth of stuff he accumumlated before meeting me:RollEyes:. I have 40 years-worth of stuff I accumulated before meeting him:RollEyes:. When we bought this place in France, we had a "10-year plan" so bought yet more stuff for here:Doh:then condensed our plan down to just 2 years!! SO, we have 3 households-worth of stuff here:Doh::Doh: That would take some getting rid of!!:ROFLMAO:
