fulltime TT

We have been fulltime nearly three years with a 34' TT; Economics is the main reason, but not the only reason; we found the identical floorplan we liked in both TT and 5'er.........the difference $18,000.00........that pays for a lot of trips. The other reason is we both have bad knees and it is much easier to walk into the bedroom than to climb the steps into the bedroom. The main thing about choosing an RV is talk to everybody, look at eveerything, and spend a year of "renting" different units and see what you like and don't like..........what you can live with and what you can live without................

We struggled for a whole on this issue but it came down to this. Tons of space and storage in our MH but equally important we didn't want to drive a tank as our daily driver when we got to our destination. We've owned a 5er and got tired of the pickups rough ride both towing but more so when empty.

For the 1 ton and ride, if you full time you are going to want to look at a pickup air bag system. It will soften up the unloaded and loaded ride.
The air pin boxes or a dampening pin box, and better springs or air bags on the 5er. Of course the DP have them already.
Mobility of the people using them should also be taken into account. As mentioned above 4 steps inside does not seem like much but you will be going up and down them more than in and out more likely than not.
I do not know on the difference on the CCC but you are going to have to keep that in mind.
You will hear discussions about loosing your house if it requires maintenance, after 5 years in their Allegro DP my parents have found a couple of discomforts but have not had to leave their home. They have been to larger repair shops and back to Tiffen for repairs and changes.
