  1. Basics to get started

    Thank you, this was exactly what I was looking for, I appreciate it. I'm a big over-thinker so having a list helps me get on the road without waiting six months to make sure I have everything
  2. Basics to get started

    I had been thinking of this so good to know that others use them, I'll be adding those to the list. thanks! Thank you for the advice and suggestions! Ya, I will probably end up buying some from Walmart, thank you for your comment!
  3. Basics to get started

    I think I have a good grip on black and grey tanks but I was wondering if you knew anything about composting toilets? How hard they are to install, the regular maintenance, and those kind of things? I was thinking of replacing the current toilet with one so I wouldn't need to deal with the black tank in the future
  4. Basics to get started

    Thank you both so much for the information
  5. Basics to get started

    This was very helpful and these were some things I hadn't added to the list so a thousand thanks I would love to hear it and the tablets are a good idea, thanks It is a Freedom Elite 23U and it doesn't have a leveling system so I have added leveling blocks to my list, do the chemicals not do anything helpful? noted on emptying thank you I do plan on full-timing in it, happily I started reading your blog and it is very helpful, I think it is well written too, thank you for the link and thank you everyone else for your replies, I appreciate it!
  6. Basics to get started

    Hello again, so I finally bought my choice of rv after what seems like a small eternity of looking and I know all the regular stuff like household items and kitchenware but now i'm trying to make a list of things like dump hose, water regulator and stuff and I was wondering if anyone had anything they would consider necessary to start off? Thank you for your time
  7. How much do your basics weigh?

    I plan to live in it for years to come, though instead of snow-birding i'm probably going towards the colder climates , thanks for the advice!
  8. How much do your basics weigh?

    I would be delighted to read your list, I've started my own list an keep adding and taking things off right now. and that's a good policy, along with trying to find things with two uses.
  9. How much do your basics weigh?

    thank you everyone who responded! yes I know it was a wide range but it helped to get a jist of what most seem to have. the next step I have is to weigh my things myself, I think I do know around what it will be but I am having to add a bit of stuff too, I'll probably have more questions in the future but right now I think that i'm good. this is a really helpful place and I hope you all have a good day!
  10. Hello there, i'm new-ish here and I just had a couple of questions but figured I would introduce myself first, names Myddrin and this will be just me going into this lifestyle, I am more experienced with long term tent camping then any-sort of rving but that is not what i'm interested in really, i'm actually looking at different vans or car/teardrop combos. I have been researching for a while about both and rving just because things do seem to overlap and have got most of what I wanted to know down but something that I couldn't really find a answer on is weight of "things", and I do know of course that everyone is different and had different things but I was wondering what would you guesstimate that your very basic basics weight? and I know of tearjerkers and the teardrops and tiny travel trailers forum but does anyone have any more they know of that could be useful? or really any tips you could think of? thank you guys so much for your time
