Here is a starting point on values. In this market, low retail , no adds for add-ons for a unit in vegy good condition.

"4) takes a big-a$$ truck to move a big-a$$ trailer. those cost like crazy and take $$ to maintain".....
cost like crazy ?
Where are you getting your numbers and info on big trucks ? My '95 KW was about 1/2 of what I paid for the new '06 1 ton Dodge....The KW was used when I bought it in 2007, had about 700K miles, and so far, it's cost me less in maintenance than the Dodge....and the Dodge is very inexpensive to keep. The KW has more brakes for stopping the heavy DRV, it has a 3 stage Jake brake for downgrades, gets about the same towing MPG as the Dodge, has almost unlimited carrying capacity, carries 300 gallons of fuel....but you were right about one thing, IMO, it does take a big truck to move heavy DRV's....safely.

JamesG - its a great idea of living in an RV instead of paying someone rent. I did that for the last 4 yrs of active duty and used my BAH to pay for rig/truck/lot rent. Worked great. I know a couple others doing the same thing and they don't have a truck yet either.

I bought a used Mobile Suite 38 rl3 and love it. It is a rig that is great for full timing and we enjoy that lifestyle.

There is also a DRV site that may give you more information on value and answer any of your questions regarding models. 5thWheelForums.com - The #1 Online RV Authority
