Just started Full Timing

My house finally sold, so I am full timing for the foreseeable future.

Currently at South Cove Co park on Lake Keowee, SC. Its a great park with all spots either lake front or lake view. Been HOT, but the AC has kept up. The spaces start at $15/day lake view (Oconee Co residents add $5 for non residents) $20 lakefront. The 4th golf cart parade was great! Plus could see the fireworks across the lake from the Park.

Off the Boone, NC starting Aug. 1st. I bit concerned about the winter in the mountains. No choice though, I teach at App State. But plan on going the FLA for Christmas break.

So far so great.

Boone, NC is ones of my favorite places but I've never been there in winter. Get an electric blanket, maybe?

Congrats on selling your home and living your dream- full timing in an Airstream.

Winter in the NC mountains will be a challenge. I would suggest installing storm windows on the inside, some type of skirting around the bottom of the trailer and insulating the cold water supply line. Good luck.

You can do it, but it will get cold. Necessity, skirting around unit, air tight as possible, plan to leave a heat bulb underneath. Seal every possible air leak, insulate all water lines possible, be ready to leave water running on cold nights. Heat, you will need it, furnace or electric. Extra carpets on floor will help. Good luck.
