Full time?

Is anyone here living in their View or Navion full time?

No, but I think you could do it pretty easily, assuming the floor plan you have works for you. If you can deal with the size of the living/sleeping/bath areas, it seems possible. They have pretty much everything a larger class C or A has, just in a more compact and nimble package. Maybe not granite counter tops or washer/dryer combos, but the basic necessities of comfort are in ours. 2018 N24V

We travel in our 2018 View V about 4 months a year now. We love the View but just a little hesitant to go full time in it.

As a former fulltimer, I would not want to repeat that experience in my Navion. A single person could probably do it, but it would be a little too close for two. Small size with reduced cooking, storage, relaxation space really would make it tough.

We have take extended trips in our Navion and enjoy that very much but if I want to fulltime, I would have never sold my Phaeton.

We spent about six months, mostly Florida, in our 2018 View 24J. It requires a lot of planned activities away from the RV.
We made some mods to add better functionality like replacing Infotainment system XSG3NA with Alpine ILX f-259(CarPlay a plus), EasyStart 364 for A/C-HP, two 12V AGM Grp-24 Vmaxtanks batteries, 250 Watts of Renogy Solar panels, Harbor Freight Chassis Battery charger, Hellwig Sway Bar plus some minor changes interior fixes.

Plan to make some more mods like 2kW Pure Sine Inverter with wiring upgrades, two more AGM Batteries, Propane extender.

People, all over the world, live in a lot less. I've stayed places that weren't anyway near as nice as my view.

We've taken two 90 day tops, and never had a bad day, I just don't want to live that small , ongoing, without a good reason

Did you do anything to you're steering system. I'm concerned since there is not much you can do with a rack and pinion system

There are a couple bloggers on https://winnebagolife.com that tell of their life on the road in a Winnebago View. Brooke Baum and her husband Buddy as well as Peter and Kathy Holcombe that also includes their teenage daughter are some that come to mind.

Facebook has a couple of groups: View/Navion Motorhomes and Winnebago View/Navion Motorhomes. Yahoo Groups has 3 groups: View-Navion, View-Navion Tech, ViewNavionMods. Sprinter-Source.com has brand specific forums and there is always this website and IRV2.

Anything specific you need info on? Start a new post and see what you get.

I encountered a steering problem last April on my way back from FL. After all was set to take of, I had to turn the steering hard 3/4 turn to the left just to go straight. 2017 View Mercedes. Decided to go to Indianapolis since that was the closest Mercedes dealer. Half way there the steering went back to normal. Since I had the wheel 3/4 turn to the left, I crossed 3 lanes of traffic but luckily no traffic in those lanes but it did make me pucker. All was fine after that but the Mercedes service told me they had to replace some electric steering assist motor in the rack and pinion. Anyone else have that problem?
