This will be interesting if I didnt have my son I would just pack a backpack with my 7mm-08 and be gone. Everything I have is for sale. I even closed my taxidermy shop.

Sounds as though you are going to be on a tight budget. Old Alpenlite trailers sell really cheap. They were one of the highest quality and best built for their day. They have huge water and holding tanks. They are made for boondocking. Mine has 78,000 miles on it twice to Alaska. Over 2,000miles of dirt roads. 21 years old. Still very tight and solid. Not a well known brand other than in the Northwest. Give them a look.

2001 dodge 2500 auto, with billet Mojave Green torque converter with 2nd gear lockup mod, raptor 100 fuel transfer pump and gauges. RV75 injectors
94 Alpenlite 27sl with many mods.

O goodness thank you so much, I am looking to put about 15k on the purchase 5k on solar and wind turb. 5k for all that fun stuff that will come up.
A first purchase for a single mom with a needey (but awesome) son, is pretty out thier. I want him comfortable and wont be able to just go rebuild 50 miles down the road.
My biggest fear is the roof. Ive read about leaks and redoing roofs, to the point I thought maybe I should go buy some of that EPDB OR EPDM, lol or what ever they call it. Just to be prepared. It has me concerned about trees.
