Hello from Tokyo

Hello all,

We currently live in Tokyo on assignment from megacorp. One year assignment has now extended to 10 years and recently agreed to extend to end of 2012. We'll be 51 then, but hope and intend to retire early (back to California) and do A LOT of RVing. We don't have one yet, and in fact don't even know for sure what we want (class A, class C, or TT). Fiver is out of the question I think for us. Not looking to answer that question today, but over the next couple of years we'll need to get it figured out, but there is a slight chance that we will take the plunge while the economy is poor and use the rig during homeleaves. Our biggest issue is how to balance our desire to be comfortable over longer hauls where we would stay at RV parks with hookups, with the desire to also stay in campsites with smaller pads and no hookups (i.e. state parks in the forest/mountains). Does anyone out there use a small TT for local (2-4 hour distance) small pad/no hookups state parks and also have a larger class A or class C for longer trips? Is there a good in-between solution?

I'm here mainly for the education. I imagine I'll do more lurking than posting, but when I have something to share, I will.
