Hi all,

My wide and I live in Perth, Western Australia and want to tour the US. We intend to spend 6 months every year travelling the US.
So I guess we'll be full timers allbeit for 6 months every year.
We are trying to decide whether to go for a TT or a MH with a toad. your opinion will be appreciated. if this question has been asked and answered on the forum, where can i find it?

Thanking you,
Frank

Welcome to IRV2. The way you decide to go sometimes isn't as important as going. Hope you enjoy our beautiful Country. Yours is on my bucket list.

Hi Frank! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

I would suggest that you search the other areas of the forum such as Motorhomes, Travel Trailers, and IRV2 General Discussion, for better results. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome to the forum. Your question is more for opinion and my choice would be the MH and Toad...

Welcome I also recommend looking at the other forums on this site for more replys. My thoughts in a nutshell. If you think you will be traveling to a destination where you will stay for a week or more aTT or 5th wheel may suit your needs. If your more inclined to travel along stopping and looking into what ever sparks your interest then a MH w toad might suit your needs. I had a 5 er and now a class A MH which makes the set up much easyer and allows us to be more spontaneous in our travel. Be sure to visit the south, just not in dead of summer when its hot and humid.

Thanks for your response, huntski. Throughout Australia there are free camping spots maintained by ther respective states and therefore it makes good sense to have an MH which does not need much set up and one can get up and go quickly. Would that be the same case thoroughout the US?Do you now have a toad?
Frank

Each state will have state parks with camp grounds which usually will have a fee according to the amenities they offer. As a general rule I have found them to be nice but often times the spots or small and difficult to back into. Also you'll find private Rv camp grounds that or more geared for travlers looking for full hookups, water, electric and sewer. Check the camping section on the IRV2, it's near the bottom of the home page. Yes I have a toad to get to those places I can't take my camper easily. Enjoy your visit here and take home some great memories.
