Hello everyone!
So glad I found this site. My husband and I have been discussing buying a fifth wheel and living in it full time. We have a 2yr old daughter and she is our only for now. My husband is Active Duty Military and we would like to be able to move from place to place but have our "own home" .. We have only been looking for a few months. We will soon be moving to Co for at least 2yrs so are looking for one that is well insulated and can be livable during the cold winter months. Excited to be here and learn as much as I can!!

-Krys

Hi Krys! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Hope you find the right 5er for your needs! We pulled a 5er for 10 years before getting the MH last year. We loved it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

P.S.- thank your husband for his service to our country!

Besides a good writer, she is doing it with two kids, and two dogs.
In places like Colorado it is not going to be any fun trying to stay warm all winter. But if this is what you want to do, look for a used Teton and a really big truck to tow it with. At least you will have a chance of staying somewhat warm. Anything less and your fuel bills will kill you.
