  1. Seeking an RV lot or small recreational lot ( 1/4 to 2 acres) in the Texas Hill country for sale. Waterfront and utility building is a plus.
  2. We have a month before we move into the fifth wheel. I have been researching and have most of my questions answered. PLUS I found a good post that compares the choices we are facing. I am still undecided, and I'm asking anyone who has arrived at their domicile decision, what are one or two smaller discoveries do you wish you had known beforehand? My decisions are between Florida, Texas, and Tennessee. SD is a distant fourth. I read Health care cost completely overshadows all other costs. I think I agree, that is for 2 years at least. I know the big points, income taxes, hea
  3. I read this topic and it’s helpful. https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/137485-winter-location-suggestion/ We just started our full time adventure this month. We have an HDT pulling a 36’ fifth wheel. We are looking for less expensive suggestions for wintering in the south. We only have a bit of experience with Florida, and I agree it can be buggy and crowded in most areas. I have family in South Miami which is my only interest. I wonder if Ft Meyers is less expensive than Miami area? According to many, Arizona is just about the best for weather. We have never been t
  4. As a new TX resident I attempted to get my Monaco motorhome registered they told me I would have to have it weighed first. They said it was a State requirement - that they could not accept what was on my SD title and registration, or on the manufacturer weight placard. I looked on the TXDOT website and found no such requirement. In fact, in the Motor Vehicle Registration Manual it clearly states that a motorhome is registered as a passenger vehicle and a weight certificate is only required if a weight DECREASE is being requested. It seems to me the county tax office is misinterpret
  5. Hey me and the DW need help. We live in NV, and NV has no state income tax, so I have not paid state income tax on my money for years. We are looking at the states that have no income tax and low land / housing / real estate prices. Texas is coming in at the top of the list. Growing up in Kansas I used to travel to San Antonio for summer vacation with the family. It was fun to visit. I would like to be near San Antonio but not in the city. I would like to be a couple of hours away. I would like to have acreage out in the country and be completely outside of city limits. I would love to have a
  6. Getting ready to take both my written and skills test for a Class A Exempt (non-CDL) Texas license. Other than the Texas driving handbook, can anyone recommend a site that will help me with the test questions? And, since I have a big rig in the form of a fifth wheel that I pull with a semi truck, what kind of skills in Texas will they expect me to demonstrate? For instance, will there be an air test I have to perform? I just now found David & Cheryl's post on the subject that was posted in this forum in 2016. It has been updated. Excellent post answering most of my questions that I
  7. We visited the King Ranch in Kingsville, Texas the day before yesterday. Big? Yeah, bigger than the state of Rhode Island. Blog entry is here (picture rich): http://wanderingtootsies.blogspot.com/2018/03/the-worlds-largest-ranch-king-ranch.html enjoy!
  8. Martha and I just visited historic Victoria, Texas and The Museum of the Coastal Bend. We had a great day, a great meal at the Rosebud Cafe and enjoyed the museum. You can read about on our blog located here: http://wanderingtootsies.blogspot.com/2018/02/victoria-texas-museum-of-coastal-bend.html. The museum is free and tells the history of the Coastal Bend.
  9. Hello Esapers After purchasing my First RV (Winnebago 2100BH Micro Minnie) I am looking to take a 3 week trip this summer with my Wife and our 7 year old daughter. I have taken one Trip By Myself to pursue my latest passion Kayak Fishing on the Texas Coast a few months ago to get comfortable towing and setting up my RV, ect.

What places would you recommend in Texas and New Mexico? (or Ok).
  10. I am a full time RV’r with my wife and we are domiciled in Texas. We have been living in Whitefish, Montana at an RV park since December 2015 and are currently house hunting in the in the area to reside permanently. My wife has a full time job in Whitefish, MT and I work remotely.My question is: We would like to purchase a second vehicle (used) but I cannot register it in Montana because we do not have a Montana license nor do we have a lease and we do not own property yet. I have confirmed this with the Montana DMV... And I can't register it in Texas because I think we have to do it in t
  11. We are new to the RV lifestyle and will be going full time in January 2018. We are wondering if anyone has advice on some campgrounds in Texas that we might look into for the colder months. We want to be warm! Thanks you for your assistance.
  12. We're going full time in about 45 days. House is up for sale in about a week! I currently live in Fort Worth, Texas (Tarrant County), where we've lived for a long time. From what I understand, we need to: Get a new domicile/mail forwarding address Update our driver's license Update our voter registration I was going to use the Escapees mail service, but from reading their FAQ it sounds like I'd have to change everything to that county, establish professional and social connections, etc, requiring us to drive down there for some things. I'm imagining it would be

  14. Howdy folks! Seeking wisdom from those who've gone before us.... My wife and I (and our two furry dependents) live outside Denver, CO and we just went under contract on the sale of our home. We own a vacant building lot in another town in the same county here in Colorado but we do not intend to build on that for a year or more. Our goal after we close on the sale of our home in January is to be nomads in our 5th wheel for at least 4-6 months. We both work from home or "virtually", so as long as we have Internet access, we're OK (we've got a bundle of doo-dads to help with that!) So my

  24. Coming from California We were going to register our vehicles and get our driver license in El Paso, TX. We didn't want to drive in the summer heat across Texas to Livingston but... I read a Texas vehicle registration post here and My husband called Livingston, TX to see if we needed to drive into Livingston, TX to register our vehicles. Yes, we do need to drive across Texas to register our vehicles. ( about $500 dollars in gas from El Paso, TX to Livingston, TX for us) I'm crossing my fingers and hoping we get our driver license & registration with no problems. On the up
