Rebecca

"Full-time" can be used to mean occupying/taking up a large part of one's day (like a full-time job), or to take up most of one's available time. Here, the speaker is saying "we live on the road full-time" to mean that they live on the road permanently, that they have no formal residence or established home base somewhere. Ex: I have a full-time job. Ex: I am a full-time mother.
