How to switch between two margin sizes?

As a young in LaTeX days now trying to find a solution to my problem. I try to use fullwidth command at tufte-book but because the text exceeds a page or two does not work. The only thing close to what I looking is How to switch between two different marginparwidth size? but again not what I want. Many many hours of research and nothing. I think and others will have the same problem please for some help

Thank you all for your immediate responses. Ι move a little late because I am new in latex and in English language. I trying to install mdframed under ubuntu to taste it. Here a small example of the problem:

\documentclass[a4paper,symmetric,twoside,nofonts,justified,marginals=raggedouter]{tufte-book}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{multicol}


\begin{document}
 \lipsum[1-3]
\begin{fullwidth}

\begin{multicols}{2}
 \lipsum[1-5]
\end{multicols}

\end{fullwidth}

\end{document}

    Perhaps consider an mdframed alternative to the fullwidth environment as suggested by the package author himself: How to switch between two margin sizes?

    I thought I have exactly the same issue in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/34368/…. How is this different?

  • I installed the programs mdframed and etoolbox I tried, not exactly what I want to do, unless I do not understand something. That I want is to use the two columns and fullwidth environment and continuity in more than two pages without having to intervene. When I use your directive with two columns environment produces overflow error as shown in the example code additionally I don't want to fix myself the margins, but i want the margins are the same as those specified in tufte-book
