Here's a great site that will provide you with a lot of information and a rating system for rv's. rv.org It will cost you some but it will be the best money you'll spend on your MH. When you've got that and read all the info go to oodle.com plug in what you're looking for and check the right boxes and it will send you daily updates.

Good luck and happy hunting.

This is correct. My mistake for leaving this out. You should always consult your owners manuals or the manufacturer of both vehicles before you use this general information found here. For the most part we will put you in the right ballpark of info, but it is up to the owner to be sure this is correct for their own situation & safety.

Regarding the statement on weather preparedness. It is very helpful to have an rv that is setup for 4 seasons, but it can be done even if not. We did it for 4 years & we were as far north as Baltimore in the dead of winter with several days below freezing & as far south in FL in the heat of the summer with no problems. Not always comfortable but with some planning ahead it can be done. We do use a heated water hose in the winter even in FL. However we do not have any pets to contend with & that is a very important consideration.
