  1. There is a young women (Becky) fulltiming in a small trailer (a Casita). Here is her website about her life http://www.interstellarorchard.com/. She has a lot of good information.
  2. DunellenGuy: Congrats; nice looking motorhome. Exciting times.
  3. You will need to determine if your itemized deductions are high enough to exceed the standard deduction. It is easy to exceed the standard deduction when owning a home because mortgage interest and property taxes are usually significant amounts.
  4. I used Miller because I thought Incorrectly that they were endorsed by the Escapees organization. They are not endorsed by the Escapees organization; they are an Escapees Commercial Vendor. Miller messed up my policy that I only found out about at the time of submitting a claim. Because of their error and how I was treated by them I will never, ever use Miller again. At the time of renewal of my policy I told the insurance carrier that if Miller was going to continue to be my agent I would change carriers.I now deal directly with the carrier with no agent as the middleman. Be sure to read all the details of your policy and don't rely on what you are being told by the agent. Dave
  5. The "Where am I at" app is free unless you want to eliminate advertisments. Then it's $3.99. I just downloaded the free version. It gives you location including county. Dave
  6. Linda: You misunderstood the question. I know that the iPhone has a "locator function" in case you lose it or it is stolen. I want to be able to look at my phone (via) an app that tells me what county I am in. NOAA weather alerts are issued by county. I have identified an iPhone app called "Where am I at" this will do what I want. There is a similar app for Android phones called "Where am I". Thanks all for your responses. Dave
  7. Barb: Thanks for the info. I understand that it can be done that way. Android phones can use an app called "Where am I". Upon opening the app you are provided with information related to your current location. I can go out to the Apple app store and search for this type of app. However, I was wondering what other RVer's are using. Dave
  8. I am looking for an I-Phone app that will indicate my current location. I am interested in knowing the county name for weather alert purposes. What app do you use for your I-Phone? Thanks for the help. Dave
  9. Congrats early graduates. Your are the first to graduate in the class of 2017. (Don't tell the class of 2016) Dave
  10. We are less than six month away from our first members starting their fulltiming in 2017. Where are you planning on going and what are you planning on doing during your first year of fulltiming? Dave
  11. Bob & Anne-Marie: Congrats on getting it all done and getting your new Forest River Berkshire XLT. Exciting times! It's great that you will be staying with the class of 2017. Dave
  12. Not correct. See the link below. Thor was created in 1980 to purchase Airstream. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thor_Industries Thompson and Orthwein purchased Airstream from Beatrice for no money down. Within 18 months they had paid off the loan from Beatrice. Thor has been extremely successful because they have allowed each of its companies to operate independently.
  13. NJTroy: Nice unit. What tow vehicle will you use? Dave
  14. Wannabervin: 5th wheels built for fulltiming are heavy and well built. Thus a substantial truck is needed. IMHO New Horizons are the Prevosts of 5th wheels. These units over 34' need a medium duty truck (class 4,5,6) or HDT. Outside of New Horizons, I am not familiar with who the good 5th wheel manufacturers are. Others will chime in here. We decided that we will keep our life simple and stay with our trailer. However, it is only two of us. Dave
