Our lifestyle has changed.  After 13 years of being full-time RVers, we settling down and built a small home in Retama Village.  Joey, our Bounder and our Travel Supreme Trailer have been sold.

The website is looking a little different as we added a top right icon pointing to the home we built.  The home we built is from the Cottages series in Phase 5 of Retama Village, so we will refer it as Our Cottage.

The pages on our travels will stay as history. 

Tige was used to live in when we were in Retama Village in Texas until Our Cottage was ready.  Changes and additions to strong>Tige will be retained for reference purposes.

Red Rover has moved on to another owner.  The pages dedicated to Red Rover will stay in the website for historical purposes.

Likewise, Joey has moved onto another owner.  The pages dedicated to Joey will stay in the website for historical purposes.

We have been on the road living the full-timing lifestyle since 6/6/2006.  We did a lot to learn about full-timing and we still are in the learning process.  We are documenting what we have learned to help those who will follow us.


Our Cottage

We documented the building process of Our Cottage and the steps of fleshing out what we will probably be our last home.

Full-Time Life Style

Full-Time Life Style

Information on the full-timing life style is found in Full-Timing Life Style.  This includes systems every full-timer or extended-timer should know about, like fresh water, sewer, and electrical systems, satellite TV and Internet connections.

We changed almost everything we initially bought for being on the road by experiences.

Our Truck

Red Rover, our Truck

Our Trailer

Tige, our Trailer

Information on our trailer, Tige, is found in Tige the Trailer and by clicking on a upper left photo.  We discuss what we ordered and added to Tige and why and some of the things we did wrong.

Since the manufacturer of Tige, Travel Supreme, is no longer in business, the specifications and options on Tige can be relevant to other trailer brands and can help make better buying decisions.


Information about items and systems we found to be safety related are found in Safety.

These may be some of the most import things to look at.
