Hello


Hello, I've been living a sedentary lifestyle which is not really good for health and well-being. My wife and I are planning to take outdoor activities to re-energize my life and become more active. We both don't do well or excel in sports that's why we chose activities such as kayaking, camping, biking, and fishing. This is the reason why I want to know more about having an RV and towing one if necessary.

Welcome. Please ask away! I suggest renting different types and testing them for 2 or 3 nights.

You are already at the best website to explore a future in RV'ing.  Six years ago I began my research by reading every word of Howard and Linda's RV-Dreams.com website.  After several days worth of reading the full content you will be ready to start going through years of forum posts.  I believe that this will answer most questions you may have.

It's been a great adventure for us and this is still my favorite website and forum.

Life is Good.

One of the best way to learn about ALL of the different ways that people fulltime is go read the blogs of those you see posting in different RV forums. Most list there blog in their signature line (like we do) and you will find information and different types of rigs, different activities people do while traveling, interesting places to go, info on how to survive the 'breakdowns' that will occur, how things change over time and things you never thought to ask about.

Hello Emman,

Welcome to a wonderful lifestyle addition. I noticed mainly your comment on sedentary lifestyle not good for you. I can relate with diabetes!

Well, I have to tell you when hubby and I have been away in our RV for any length of time (often 3 to 12 week trip minimums), and I have my next set of blood tests my sugars are typically the best and the Dr is thrilled. We find when we are RVing we walk a ton more, love kayaking, fishing, do some biking (butt hurts more as it's aging so getting less on that LOL), and just are generally without effort it feels more active overall.

FWIW: We have a Class A Gasser and we don't tow by choice, as we find this encourages us to walk/bike even moreso, than when we had a truck and 5er in the late 90's. Just mentioning as a thought based on your goals???

"(butt hurts more as it's aging so getting less on that LOL)"

Someday, I am a cyclist and noticed your comment above. When you butt hurts and you ride regularly it is usually because you are supporting too much weight on the butt. There a five points of contact...saddle, handle bars and pedals. Each needs to carry the right percentage. Raising your saddle in small amounts will transfer weight to the other four. Bicycle saddles are not for "sitting."
