Michelle, what changed your mind about full-timing? We haven't seriously considered doing it but it sounds intriguing.

-20F is the average low temp in January in Billings,MT I have a new job and will be there year round. I love the full timing thing but I just cannot see swinging it in the cold Montana winters.

I think there is a club or group of solo travelers...can someone on here help my Swiss Cheese brain? Free Wheelers? Anyway, you might try a search to see what you can find about others who travel solo--should find lots of opinions and tips there. Best wishes! ~G

Reading your post reminds me of my similar post a few years back. I finally retire mid-June 2017 and look forward to getting out on the road. I will have owned the Airstream five years in a few short months and I am comfortable towing and dealing with minor issues. I had an extra work year added to my original retirement plan but it is almost over.

I will share in just my brief vacation-like travels that many people have been helpful. Some have run over to help me back in as soon as I arrive without asking. I have been a few places wishing for company but raised an only child, I am quick to find activity. Like you I have yet to explore the solo camper groups and offerings. My first RV camping was 2005 in New Zealand where $18 a night was a lot to pay for full hook ups in a full-featured park- kitchen, theater, pool, etc. I did not look into campground costs here until after purchasing the Airstream. The costs are ridiculously high for a night of some water and electricity. It will definitely impact how and where I camp.

Recently retired and Airstreaming solo. As with anything anywhere you will always need to put safety first. I have recently joined this forum and read it everyday to learn more. I have been met with amazing generosity and extremely useful information. Lots of support here, you will not be alone. You will make new, interesting friends that you will have for life. I know I have. Looking forward to at least 5 years of full-timing and then what happens. Improvise, adapt and overcome. Every challenge is a chance to learn something new.

Welcome to the forum. I currently have an Airstream Interstate, (previously, a 16' Bambi sport). I travel solo with. A furry baby and me. I feel safer with my AI, as if I end up someplace and decide I don't like it, all I need do, is walk up front, get behind the wheel and go. (That is, if I am not hooked up.) usually, if just an overnight for sleep. I like my alone time, but, if I want company, not that hard to find.

I go it alone, mostly though not full-time- yet. I have always found that being comfortable single is the first thing. I've met people who have issues with single people trying to "figure me out" stereotypically. I say, just get to know the person. I met the nicest Airstream couple last year who walked their cat on a leash. That event, and the Airstreams were our initial talking points. I like to hear about people's travel adventures, etc. I haven't met too many single travelers but several nice people.

Rod, you are so right! One must like one's own company...learn to enjoy your alone time. No one can make us happy...we must do that for ourselves. I try to choose those folks who have the same confidence and a positive nature...no drama. If they are not available...no problem...Mikki and I like each other just fine.

i am a solo traveler and love it..one meets great people everywhere,i rely on the kindness of strangers,both the Safari sport and my dog (minature pincher)attract attention and wonderful encounters,and conversations result from it...singles tend to go towards other people more than couples who tend to stay together...i love pulling into a campground,setting up and walking around to meet other campers from all over,exchange tips,sharing information etc etc...its a great adventure...happy new year to all..M

I travel alone but also still working virtually with my agency. One thing about an Airstream...your gonna get noticed!! Every campground I have ever stayed in overnight always ends up with folks stopping by to ask about it and or make comments. Its very easy to meet your neighbors and just know that RV folks in general are always much friendlier that who you find at hotels.
