BC Canada Home Base?

We're considering going fulltime, selling our condo. I'm having a hell of a time figuring out if there is any way to home base in BC without owning property (expensive here) or renting something year round (kind of lame). Are there any other BC (lower mainland) full timers that have figured this out?

Hi,
We did it from 2006 to 2010. We rented one room from a friend, in their house. They didn't charge us anything. I used that address for BC med, drivers License and truck/trailer registration and insurance. (All done in one visit to a BC access center) For the rest of my mail, I used Mail Box ect and the UPS store. There are lots of mail forwarding businesses. Just Google it. Make sure to go back to BC every six months and keep some gas receipts or anything that can prove you were there.
That all worked well for us. You can also use a relative for primary, but we didn't have one. All our pensions and deductions were on auto deposits.

Al

I'd consider owning property in one of the smaller communities. Once you're North and East of Squamish/Vancouver or on the Island, you can find properties that are priced at a fraction of the prices in the lower mainland.
