Poll on what type of unit full timers use

I am not asking your reasoning as to why you prefer one over the other, but am just curious about the numbers.

I know a person that boondocks out of a pickup truck with only a low cover over the bed. I'm in a 35 foot converted bus.

The point is, "it doesn't matter". The only space needed is the space occupying the area ear to ear.

Had a TT years ago. When we decided to go FT we knew we wanted a MH.
We looked at a couple 5'ers and liked the extra room and hominess, but felt the MH would be easier to move from place to place. We think it's more fun to ride up high and see the sights.

it all boils down to personal preference and type of traveling. there are pro's and con's for each type RV.

Depending on the RV park we usually see about an even split between motor homes and 5th wheels.
The park we are in now has a lot of ATV riders and there is probably a 80% majority of 5ers. We don't see very many TTs anywhere.

I neither own an RV/motorhome ATM, so I felt it wasn't right to 'vote', but when the time comes, I'll be opting for a Motorhome....just always wanted one and have camped in a few as a young kid growing up and camping in Modesto, CA.

Although there is no category for this, mine is a Class A Toy Hauler so, I suppose, it would fall into both areas.
