Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband Pete and myself (Pat) starting fulltiming in May 2011 in a class A motorhome. We have 10 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 26 yrs, and 2 great-granddaughters The 5 yr olds are identical twins. It's 2017 almost 2018 now and we are still full-time and still love it. We have wintered in AL, MS, TX and now AZ for 2017/18.

We do not have a place to offer as our rv is our home, but maybe sometime in the future. We will be keeping our eyes open for that perfect little town to set up a home base in the future.

We look forward to meeting some of you and establishing friendships along the way.

Pete can build or fix just about anything be it mechanical, electrical, plumbing, automotive , motorcycles, etc.

So far, our only boondocking has been at Walmart, but that may change this year as we explore AZ and other western states.

PDJ2's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

36 feet long

We own a 2000 Monaco monarch class a motorhome with 2 slides. It is 36' . We can boondock without extending the slides, but must put the small bedroom slide out to access the closets and dresser. No funky decorations and we regularly wash and wax it (what a job). No black streaks here unless we just came from under a bunch of trees.
