I'm new to the board, and enjoyed this post immensely. as stated, no one can offer what is "better", because that is very personal.
I live in NJ. we vacation in our TT. to have a motorhome would mean 2 car insurance policies, year round. ouch. however, this poster mentioned fulltiming. if that were the case, I'd certainly be researching the best state, all around, for my home base.
I've been camping since age 8. that's almost 50 years. wow. one thing I would often ask myself when out and about on vacation is : why is the camper pulling the car?
for ME, that remains the main question. storage? our new unit has many empty cabinets, because I am not a fulltimer, and I have so much storage. I venture to say if I were a full timer, storage would not be an issue.
roof height? I plan on writing to Jayco and suggesting 2 things, a button in the bath to open the bath vent, and a light switch in the bedroom to turn on that light; as I, at 5'3", can reach neither. when I'm in the camper, I can't reach the ceiling, we have 7' ceilings.
we own a Harley Davidson Ultra full dresser. to us, Harley's are the only bike to own. however, when we see a Honda go by, we think, at least he's on 2 wheels.
when I see a motorhome go by, inevitably towing the car, I now think, at least they're camping. lol
which way to go will have horror stories, and success stories, for both options. quality will also vary, and no, not always based on price. as you can see here, neither one is better then the other, it is all up to you. what one sees as an advantage, may not be so to another.
there is ONE thing that I wish were law, no one should be able to purchase and drive a huge motorhome without special driving licenses. sorry, but I do drive a school bus, and I had to have training to earn a CDL to do so. eh, but I can see where that applies to towing too. see? lol
in the end? GO CAMPING. lol. right? Ricky T's
