MAKING THE DECISION:
Why consider the full-time RVer life?
What experience have we had living like that?
Can we afford it? Can we afford not to take the chance?
Renting for a trial run.
Sounding out the family? The pros and cons for them.
Reality check: forced to downsize drastically.
All systems "GO"
SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT RV:
Internet search: Knowing where to start; dealers' or manufacturers' websites
Shows and showrooms - gut reactions count
Hard core essentials: Chassis, engine,
Mid core essentials: Levelers, mirrors, steps, water systems, heat,
Soft core essentials: Galley equipment, bedroom, bath, storage, privacy curtain
Luxury: TVs, slideouts, awnings, shower enclosure, antennae, entertainment
Storage space - reachable at what height?
Access to driver and passenger seat

section comes out so the seat can be moved forward into position.
