You Know You’re a Full-Time RVer When…. (Part 2)

Back in July of 2012 we did our first “You Know You’re a Full-Time RVer When…” list, and it’s time to add a few more items to it. If you full-time, you probably have a few to add as well. Feel free to tell us when *you* realized you were a full-blown full-time RVer in the comments section!

You know you’re a full-time RVer when…

… you take notes when you watch “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” so you can be sure to stop at the restaurants that sound appealing.

… you have to keep track of where you find special products in various cities so you don’t have to go store-to-store hunting them down every time you visit.

… you’re watching the evening news and you’ve been nearly everyplace in the US that gets mentioned.

… you get nervous when you don’t have something to fix because it usually means something major (and expensive) is about to break.

… you finally learn what’s down which aisle in the supermarket and which channels your favorite TV shows are on, then move the next day to a place where you have to learn them all over again.


… OR… you decide to keep a list of TV channels in the towns you spend the most time in so you don’t have to re-learn them every time you stay there.

… you get excited when you buy something with cash and get quarters for change — money for the laundry!


… you have as many (or more) library cards than you do discount retail cards.

… you have favorite servers in restaurants in more than a dozen different states — and they all know you on sight; some even remember your favorite dish.

… you decide which pots and pans to buy based on the size of your sink.


… you can’t remember the last time you bought toilet paper that isn’t “septic safe.”

Okay, your turn! When did you realize you were a full-timer?!?
