I work in OKC now and live in Lawrence. I had planned to move but can't afford to sell the house. So I saw it as an opportunity to do something I had wanted to do for a while, get an RV. Speed isn't much of an issue since I plan to leave it parked in OKC except when my wife and I use it for vacations. I'm definitely leaning towards a used TT to get started and see where it goes.
Since you will keep the TT or what ever you decide in OKC you might want to search the Tulsa area Craig's list for some deals as well. A friend of ours bought a 4 year old TT with 2 slide outs for less than 6k. (bank Repo)

Thanks Ron. I'm searching far and wide for the right one. I check Craigslist every couple of days for anything in KS, OK, and MO. I'm checking RVTtrader .com too.

You have to be patient, we searched for 6 months due to people believing thier junk was gold, we finally found ours south of Lebo,Ks. It needed awning fabric all the way around(-1k cost me 600 to do it my self), all fluids changed (- 250.00) tires(2-3k doing that now) tune up, filters, etc..
Basically we got it for 5.5k less than what they were asking. They didn't even blink when we made an offer, so I should have gone even lower but for $9500.00 it was a great purchase!
You will find the one you want, just spend some time looking and know what needs to be fixed/serviced prior to purchasing. Download one of the PDI(pre delivery inspection sheets) or look at the multiple website that guide you through buying one of these babies. I know it saved me a ton of money.

I work out of state and am gone about 3 nights a week. Whichever way I go I will live in the RV while at work and leave it parked near my job most of the time. My wife and I will also use it for long weekend trips and 1 to 2 week vacations in the Rocky Mountains and maybe an occasional longer trip to the east or west coast.

I would appreciate any advice about making the decision between MH and TT. I'm looking forward to being part of the forum and the RV community.
