Stabalizing my new residence

I made the plunge and full timing now. I reside in one of the Hurricane states (Florida).

I want to secure it with tie downs when not traveling. What is the best way to secure/dock my investment? Should I put all four corners on blocks?

Everyone thought I wouldn't be able to make this move, but I did and I am truly loving it.

Recommendation, if you are set on doing this to check with a local company that specializes in storm tie downs. This is a travel trailer not a park model. Speaking as someone that also lives in a high storm prone area - I say don't. In stead be ready and able to hook up and pullout of the area if a storm is approaching. The damage they can do to a trailer tied down or not is devastating.

Michael has it right. We buy recreational vehicles because they have wheels. When a hurricane threatens you need to pack up the coach and head elsewhere.
