When we fulltimed, our goal was to stay in fair-weather year-round.. Up in the Northwest during the summers, down in the Southwest during the Winter... Took us a couple months traveling at a very slow pace to reach our goals..

We had a Campground Membership to help with park fees, rarely spending more than $10/day.. We also took advantage of monthly stays, boondocking/overnight stays when traveling..

Had a Motorhome pulling a small pickup.. After nine years, wife wanted another house, so we quit fulltiming.. I do not like this stick house life and wish we were still on the road..

We have been on the road a year and 99% of the time we stay put one week and then move on. We have had times we have only moved 100 miles and then settled for another week but never farther than 250 miles.
We stay in state parks, private parks, COE, National and most certainly boondock when we can. It's a lot harder to boondock out east than farther west. We have never camped in a parking lot yet, but would.
I will admit that after one year on the road I'm almost looking forward to finding a spot to settle for 1 whole month later this winter.

Our months vary - if we are volunteering like we are now, we will be in each of three Oregon State Parks one per month until January when we will stay 2 months, then travel to another park for a month, take a month & a half off before either volunteering at our Home Base or taking the summer off .. will be traveling approx. 100 miles between volunteer sites, and going places we have not been before.
Previously we have stayed 2-3 months wherever we volunteer, so there is no "normal month" for us.
A delightful aspect of full-timing for us is that there is no 'normal'.

We have been camp hosting at different parks all summer so this gives us time to see the area. We do not travel far and try to limit our travel to 150 miles between parks. Looking to do more travels out west in the future but for now we are hanging around the east coast.
