After years of research, Al and Marilyn from Connecticut chose a 36 foot Grand Design fifth wheel as their full-time home on wheels. In this episode, they share why they chose their RV, their travel adventures, challenges and tips for living on the road.

Marilyn and Al share their downsizing story, what it was like moving from a house into an RV, and how they handle living together in such a small space.

Folks who are interested in what it is like facing medical challenges while traveling should definitely listen to this episode. Marilyn faced a major leg injury just a few months into their full-time journey, thousands of miles from their starting point and on what they consider to be their first "regular" trip as full-time RVers. She underwent surgery and months of therapy, changing their travel plans dramatically and learning to live with limited mobility in their fifth wheel.

Also in this episode: how Marilyn and Al plan their travels, what they do to see family along the way, what has changed about their travel schedule, their favorite things to do as they work their way across the USA, and more.

Just like our recent guests, Joanna and Randy and Eva and TC, Al and Marilyn began RVing just before they became full-time RVers. They've learned a lot and they've seen a lot in just a few short years!
