Class of 2020


Well my dad passed away recently and my brother and I have a plan for liquidating estate over the next few months.  I'll also use the time to continue to lighten my load of "stuff" and join you all at a full-timer.  I'm watching the RV-Dreams site so I can register for the next educational rally.  

I'm working on specs for my cargo trailer that will carry my Can-Am Spyder and business stuff, and I'm considering a different, shorter MH, to live in.  I plan to be FT by next spring, if not before.

Sorry for your loss. Depending on your state your Dad's estate might be handled in a summary proceeding or in a full probate matter if he didn't have a living trust. And how trusts are handled varies state by state too. The summary gross value limit in California, for instance, is $150,000. Hopefully you have retained an experienced probate/trust attorney. Remember, the IRS, Medicare, state income tax departments, creditors etc. never sleep and will be looking at you and your brother.

No problem, Larry. Everything was in a trust and I'm the trustee. We're just going through all the paper work and coordinating among the attorney, financial advisor and the accountant. No probate required. So I'll probably winter here and then head out in the spring.

I'd have already been out there with all you FT folks except for caring for my Dad in his later days.  But I wouldn't have traded them for anything.


I'm waiting with bated breath for news about the next education rally. Will there be one in the fall? Or only in the spring?

Just a heads up that most shorter motor homes are built on a Ford chassis these days. The towing capacity of these is 5,000 lbs. A trailer big enough to haul a spyder and the spyder will likely take up a lot of that capacity. You should also look at how much cargo carrying capacity (CCC) you will give up with the trailer as it subtracts from your GCVR. For instance a certain motor home I'm familiar with has a hitch capable of towing 10,000 lbs. It also has a CCC of around 6,200 lbs. However, the GCVR is just 5,000 lbs more than the GVWR so while you can tow 10,000 lbs you will only have about 1,200 lbs of CCC left, which isn't much. Just the math I've gone through over the last year of so looking at the same issue.

The rally has been posted. We are so excited. We are going full time in December.   Who else is going in April 2020?

If all holds, we will be on the road during the summer of 2020.
