If the 50K was the sum total of my savings I would avoid a MH all together----perhaps a nice used TT would work fine, cost half to a third as much---if you already own a tow vehicle so much the better. Or just pass and find a cheaper hobby or interest.
In addition, in many states, a TT or 5er will only cost you once for registration. Not so for a motorhome.

That's my 1 cent, use to be worth 2 cents.
Yup, best way to do it with the current financial mess.

There are many that are full timers on the road.
Is this a wise thing to do? many spend all their money on a RV and have nothing left; seems that the escapees encourage this. To each his own I say, it just doesn't seem to me to be a wise decision.
As you will hear from full timers it's a life style not homeless,if you sell your sticks and bricks to get rid of it fine, but to spend every dime on a RV happy trails.
