Have a strange question

I am looking to buy a 5th wheel to live in full time because of all the room. I am not interested in traveling in it as i will use it as my residence. It is possible to have it moved if i decide to relocate. I drive a mini-van and want not thinking of buying a tow vehicle with it being my residence.

Not strange at all. I know folks who do that. They had it delivered to the campground for summer living and paid someone to move it when they wanted to try another campground,

Welcome to the forum.

Yep, no problem... so long as you plan for the expense of paying someone to move it. Probably a great solution for many folks.

Best of luck.

You can hire a company to move it for you . So many $$ a mile. Since you will be parked mostly, have you considered a park model instead of a 5er?

Yes. We are doing the same thing. Full timing in a 5 th wheel but not traveling in it. We were told if we wanted to move we could find some one to do it file about 2 dollars a mile.

We've done that because we're not planning to move, but you should make sure you set money aside for the day you want to move. The cost will be for the vehicle and expenses, plus the driver's time, for BOTH ways of the trip (to deliver the RV and to get back to home base), so you may be surprised by the quote. There are businesses that do RV deliveries, some small and some large, but you'd have to check for any such business in your area.
