Thumbs up Traveling RN-San Antonio

We also like the solitude by Grand Living, because of the storage. We would like to get one that is gel coat without decals. Any suggestions or information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just ran across your post. My wife is a traveling RN. We just bought a 2013 Montana Mountaineer 295 RKD. She is working with an agency to try to get on in San Antonio! Starting in early November.
As far as a fifth wheel goes, we have looked at 100's, also. If money is no object, then a Luxury Suites or Cameo or Carriage or one of those others are fine choices. But we didn't think we needed to spend $80,000 or more on a fifth wheel. The R-values in our Mountaineer are not at the top of the scale, but somewhere near mid-range. And we have been told that the front living units have a heavier hitch weight. We liked the Keystone Alpine front living, but not the $77,000 price! Why do you prefer no decals?
So, if you don't mind my asking..... What agency are you with for this assignment, what is your specialty, and what hospital will you be at? (Methodist?) And, can your sister recommend a good rv park in San Antonio? If you would rather not answer, that is fine, or you can send me a private e-mail. Thanks!!!

Thanks

Thank You all for your advise. I have checked out ever piece of advise you guys have given us, and we learned soooo much! I am so thankful for all of you and that I found this site. We would have made a huge mistake if not for all your input. Since we are selling our home and living full time in a 5 th wheel we have decided on going with the DRV. We looked at a 7 Y/O DRV & except for the flooring it was in incredible condition. Still waiting to sell our home before buying. Praying it's sells soon, but trusting God for his perfect timing!

R Journey~ Sorry I have not responded. I been so busy trying to get ready to leave for San Antonio this Sunday. We are majorly downsizing, since we are selling our home. We just had huge garage sell last weekend to rid our self of 29 + years of possessions. I am working through Parallon at Methodist Children in Mother-Baby Couplet Care. I start orientation on Tuesday. My recruiter is amazing. She was named recruiter of the year in 2012. If interested I will get you her name. We are sold on the DRV. I know they are expensive, but we have looked at a 7 y/o and was still in great shape. We also like the storage, full size refrigerator, bigger washer & dryer, frame built with square tubing, axels, tires and solid wood. Lots of good qualities. I leave Sunday and hopefully the next weekend we can go start looking for RV parks in San Antonio. We want full body paint, because the decal fade & peel after awhile. Please send me a email @ liz_lindsey@ymail.com if you want more info. Have a blessed day!!

Full body wrap with 3m product will be less than paint. Mine cost 3300 in July. Not quite full wrap but another 1k at the most.
Trailer is a 40' Travel Supreme. Full paint is 7-10k at Mikes Paint in Elkahrt.
