I'm 42. Purchased when I was 41.
By the time I have this Airstream paid off, I'll be retired and ready to roam the country.

And you'll have a vintage Airstream! (well, hopefully it won't be that long)

We purchased our used 2008 International Signature Series 27FB over the weekend! We have a lot of regular life stuff to wrap up over the next few months, but are excited to be on the road soon!

My wife and I are in the process of transitioning to full time and are both in our 30s. We've had the dream of a life on the road since we were in our early 20s and are now making it happen. We're never better as a couple or individuals than when we are on the road and are confident that the sacrifices we'll make to adopt this lifestyle will be nothing compared to all we'll gain.

We acquired our tow vehicle this summer and picked up our Airstream a little over a month ago. We'll be spending the month of January and some of February in Arizona escaping the snow and cold and shaking down the trailer, our gear and the overall experience. We plan to transition to full time in the next six to twelve months, mostly dependent on the sale or lease of our house. I'll be taking my job with me which provides a level of financial security. My wife will explore online opportunities as well as work camping. We'll see how long I can hold on to the corp gig. I'm sure it will be mine for as long as I want it, but not sure how long I'll be able to take it. Once on the road I'll start working on alternatives that afford more flexibility even if it means less financial stability.

We've had to overcome some challenges to make this work and know the experience won't be all pie and Sunday mornings. However, having beaten a near fatal illness I am acutely aware of how fragile life is and that you have to experience it while you can. I'm so excited about this transition as well as a little apprehensive. It instills confidence to know others are doing it and more will be joining us. I'll be updating more on the forums and will be starting a blog to chronicle the process and allow friends and family to follow the adventure.

Thanks for reading,
DK

The new America: IBM and others have announced that they intend to rid themselves of all permanent employees and only hire on a temporary basis, project-to-project. So here's your childrens' future as other corporations follow the example (evolutionary game theory: following the successful example):

Workers hopscotch across USA for temp checks

My wife and I are in our mid-twenties and start full timing next week. We got rid of our hollywood hills condo, all of our furniture, 10 bags of clothes to good will, and just about anything we hadn't used in the last year. We hit the road on Tuesday headed for Texas from Kansas. My wife wants to start a blog, and as she is a photographer I'm sure it will be well documented as far as pictures go.

See ya on the road!

Welcome to the forums, and more power to ya! There's so much to see and do and you are getting a 40 year headstart on most fulltimers.
Congrats on The Great Escape (from Hollywood)

I am just now 41 and we intend, my wife and I, on being fulltimers by time I am 43, but I am a carpenter superintendent so traveling and working is more proffitable for me, and I already have a job traveling the rv is much beter than motel life I asure you. I intend to purchase an older sovoreign class 31 foot this spring and rebuild it this summer this has been my dream since I was young and the last child graduates next year. I think the hardest thing would be to try and raise children while traveling and this was the only reason we did not do it sooner. Family is the greatest thing to think of before you start. The winter is tough nomater what type you have we had a 32 foot bounder we stayed in for a few long periods and it was fun.

Look forward to all aspects of it as you care to post, both the renovation and the life on the road of working/camping.

I'm 33 and my wife is 28. We have been active members here since 2006 and owned 7 Airstreams! There is a small contingent of us that is growing here in the community.
