What to get????

We are looking at setting up a permanent type of trailer/5th wheel,park model that we can live in 6 months every year, we have a diesel truck and a 23 foot trailer that will be used for traveling.
What type of unit would give the most bang for the buck? We are looking to keep the purchase price around 30k.

Personally I would look at a Park Model. It would probably be easier to sell down the road if needed. Especially if your in a retirement park. My 2nd choice would be a 5er. JMHO of course. Good Luck. We are kind of in the same situation.

The 5th wheel gives the best bang for the buck in my opinion. They're roomy and have loads of storage space. Most have a lot of windows so you can enjoy the views in a bright cheerful environment. We have a 28' TT w/one slide right now we spend 3 months in, in the winter. It can feel a bit claustrophobic at times.

If you choose to go with a park model, be sure to own the site you put it on (get lawyers involved). Twice in Florida during the past few years we have seen parks sold out form under folks.

Last year in Ocala people were given 60 days to vacate, some had spent 18 years in the park and going to Florida in the middle of summer arrange and oversee the dismantling and moving of their units at an unexpected expense of several thousand dollars was @#$@## to say the least.

The most troublesome thing to me was, they moved right back into the same situation, you can bet if Wal Mart, Camping World or anyone else walks into the office and puts a few million and the owners desk to build on the location, they will in the same predicament again.

An RV of any type can be moved quickly and easily if you have or choose to move for any reason.

Thanks all, we own the land where we will install whatever it is we get. Thinking about getting the most luxury, wood oriental carpets and bringing in household furniture. Any further thoughts appreciated.
