I just wanted to point out, that as a woman with a lot of mechanical experience, I have had the opportunity to talk to lots of women who do mechanical things, or would like to. A lot of them say they give up after trying a few small things and then their husbands go back and re-do them after they are finished, because the job they did wasn't 'good enough'. So the women get frustrated and just stay out of it. Of course some women are brought up believing they can't do mechanical things, and some just have no interest in it (just as some men have no interest in it).

So guys, just be sure to give your ladies a fair chance to learn, try and succeed. You might be surprised.

Since we are soon to be full-timers this whole idea is essential.
I am not too worried about the surburban/trailer scenario as I used to pull horse trailers in another life. But the motorhome will be the new experience. We, (I) am waiting for the long roads of Tx for the behind the wheel on the 34.5 like everything it is having the time and the perserversence. When we actually ask most couples we know who have been Airstreaming for awhile, even the 80 year olds have the ability to do both.
