    Please do your homework and read the full timing forum

    1. have a sound financial plan .. do the sums. Monthly costs against income.

    2. ensure you have proper full time vehicle and contents insurance, this isn't cheap ,
    the only company I know offering this is Comfort Insurance.. check this out before selling up.

    3. You must have 'home address', if this is your dads, ensure you are on the voters role, use this address for bank, driving license, RV Log book, all official mail and register with the local doctor..

    Full timing isn't a long holiday .. yes, it may be for a year or so, it's a way of life that you need to think about carefully .. what will you be doing in 2 , 3 or more years.

    I'm not trying to dissuade you, we were full time for three years, it's not easy nor is it a holiday.. life goes on, you still have bills.. it's an alternative , not an escape.

    good luck .. and ask plenty questions
