OK....most of us on this board are simply mh/campervan owners who either enjoy the odd weekend away or a couple of weeks now 'n then. Some of us dream about selling up and getting rid of the house, taking early retirement, and getting a van we can go 'full time' in. Some have actually done it. Many different threads and comments on here but i'm not sure just how many on the mb are real genuine 'full timers'.....and it's you i'd like to hear from. Ignoring the freedom lifestyle for a moment, lets concentrate on exactly what are the downsides....the negs to full timing? For example; you don't have a fixed address so where do you get mail sent? If drawing a pension how and where do you open a Bank account? Is it easy to 'full time' in the UK....or better out of the UK? What size/type of mh would be suitable for somebody like myself (single man living alone), which would give a decent living standard without going totally 'ott'? I'm hoping to retire in a couple of years time, am totally peed off with the rising cost of maintaining the bricks 'n mortar of my house plus still having a mortgage, so have considered a variety of options to get shut of the mortgage, shove some cash in the bank, and give me a more relaxed lifestyle. I've thought about Park homes (not gone into that much yet), narrow boat (put off by listening to a guy who had actually done it who commented it is not cheaper than running a house like most people think), and 'full timing' in a mh. So what are the downsides and what are the 'hidden' costs?
