Are you saying I could have charged my kids for storage for all the stuff they left behind when they started their own adult lives? Darn it! [emoticon]

How can you put a price on their leaving? Surely that is worth way more than any reasonable storage fee you can think of....

I didn't see a follow-up from the OP, so my advice is to take it step wise. Travel a few days, then a few weeks, then a few months. Meanwhile see how much you can downsize and what's left. With this, and the travel, you'll knows whether a home base is better than not. Then you can get into the bigger decisions like selling the house. Keep us posted.

Have a 36 ft rv right now but when we sale the house was going to look for a bigger one. Me and my husband have hosted one campground and loved it. I am a bus driver and have Summers off and we usually spend it in the camper. I haven't been able to travel and would love to before I get too old, we are just going over 50.. lol I don't mind down sizing, we have stuff we haven't touched in years. I am very excited about this and can't wait to get out there and live a dream of ours.

My wife and I sold or gave away everything and hit the road 2 years ago full time in a 26' winnebago navion. My advice would be to try out the lifestyle for a few weeks before making the commitment. We did 1 month to 5 month trips for several years, before we figured out how to work from the road and cover costs. Be ready for a shock when you sell your stuff; it is worth less than you think!
Also, you need to have something to do. You mentioned work camping, which is good. Be sure you and everyone else in your family have a hobby, work, or some portable pursuit. I actually do web design and e-marketing, and my wife sells rare fabrics and buttons. those help pay the bills and keep us busy! It's not all fun and games.
Also, buy the best rv you can afford. it sucks to break down miles from service. And, consider how and where you want to live. If you like boondocking, a class A is going to limit you somewhat. But a class B might be too small, even though it goes more places. But we have seen people in all kinds of rigs. Heck, we lived for 5 months in a little 4-wheel camper on the back of a 1/2 ton pickup. we could go anywhere in that rig--desert, forest roads, off-road. But, it was like living out of a purse!
You are not crazy. We are happier than we thought we would be.
