taking a break from the road

We are in fact doing just that. We had talked about getting a park model in a park in Mesa for the winter when we have to get off the road and this past fall found one at a very good price, so we are now 2 stage fulltimers - stationary in the PM for the winter (PMs are still classified as RVs) and mobile for the spring, summer & fall.

It would be a lot less expensive for me to allow the company I work for to provide my housing. The apartments were usually very nice with all the amenities. In the early days of my travel nursing it was probably the best for me. Now I wouldn't think of it. My clothes are always where they are supposed to be, I know who slept in my bed last, My refrigerator has what I need in it most of the time and every thing I really need is some where close by. If you are "renting" or exchanging your home for someone else s you will have to go through all those things that I call MOVING and I hate Moving. I like to travel but hate moving. I travel from place to place but don't move there.

The author's of this book, http://www.amazon.com/RVers-Bible-Everything-Choosing-Enjoying/dp/0684822679/, would buy a used RV, live in it until tired of traveling, then buy or rent a place while selling the RV, until tired of sitting still, then get another RV, repeat. I thought they were odd when I read the book years ago, and still do. But to each his or her own.

I have heard of folks who exchanged use of RVs with someone from Europe or some other part of the world, but that exchange still puts both parties in an RV. I can think of no reason to make an exchange to a house in any location that we could visit without leaving the RV. I think that you don't realize that people who are fulltimers consider the RV to be their house. Moving into a house would be a great deal of work with nothing significant to be gained in doing so, while incurring a great deal of risk by loaning a very expensive RV to someone who probably has no RV experience.

 

I think that your question has left most of us who live, or have lived in an RV puzzled about what motivation we would have to do this? It would b of no benefit to the RV owner at all.

 

By the way, let me apologize for our having failed to welcome you to the Escapee forums. We usually are a very friendly bunch and we love to have new folks join it! Welcome!

Since we are long timers and have a S&B In Ohio we can take a break anytime we wish to. In general we spend the 6 winter months in a warm climates and the summer months based at our S&B.We do our travel in the summer months so we have the best of both worlds.
