Hello Everyone,
I am a single mom who is seriously considering going full time with my 4 year old. Anyone else out there full timing w/kids or is this a crazy idea?

Will you home school? I cannot think of a nicer way to grow up and learn about the country but it will be important to build in social experience as well, I expect...
Welcome!

PS Who said there are rules that apply to everyone anyway?? :) I care very little about where I am going, so how can I be lost?

Not knowing your circumstances, it's hard to make an assessment on your fulltiming thought. If you are going to be in one area long enough for your child to attend school when the time comes, or plan to home school --- fulltiming and schooling can and do mesh.
You have not given enough facts to go any further than that. However, I did wish to respond to your post and welcome you to our Forum. We are glad you've joined us, come often and let us get to know you. Our welcome mat is always out for new members!
Happy RV Planning!

Welcome !!!! I'm glad you've joined us :D I full time, but my kids have 4 legs and fur so it's not the same - HA !!! Like the others have said, school would be the big concern and I would think you've thought of that. I'm sure there are people who travel with kids and home school them - anything is doable and your daughter is young enough that you could home school for the first year or two and re-asses as you went along. Interesting idea !! Thanks for joining our group :D Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I have met families that are in both categories in the past several months. One woman has been homeschooling her children since they have lived in their Class A. She had a son 13 and two daughters. They have been living in this class A since 1997. Then there was the family living in a 40 ft 5er. They had three children also and they attended school in the city somewhere. There was a school right next to the campground, they might have gone there. I think many people will begin to rethink stick houses and all of the pains that come with them. I don't know what kind of RV you will choose but when I peeked into mine I knew it was home. I retired at age 62 and chose to live fulltime in my Class C. OB44

Thank you so much for the links! I'll work on enabling my PM in a minute. Thanks for letting me know it's off. :-)

Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome. I have considered homeschooling my daughter on and off since she was a toddler. At the moment my plan is to send her to traditional school because I have to stay local for work.
I do have large chunks of time off in summer and winter though so I'd plan to do a lot of traveling then. I don't know if that would be very compatible with a traditional school schedule so we might end up homeschooling or some sort of hybrid of co-op education plus mommy as teacher.
So far I'm really just doing feasability research. I want to know what others have done and learn from experienced RVers to see if we are even RV kinda people!

I did send you a PM - at least I hope I did, I sent it right around the time the forum (or was it my connection) crapped out - let me know if you didn't get it :D Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

Hi, just wanted to add my "welcome"! I remember another member who was going to homeschool her kids while traveling. I want to say it was Darcie or Danar, but I could just be having a senior moment.

Sometimes, the only right answer is silence...which in and of itself speaks a thousand words.
