Outfitting my '05 Born Free and then...

Once the For Sale sign is in the front yard and the garage sale done (end of May) I'll move into my "new to me" 24RB MH. I've promised myself that I would give it a year on the road before deciding if I wanted to go back to sticks and bricks.
I've been planning this move for about 2 years as my retirement date approached. Now it's all coming together.
Have I picked the right MH? I don't know.
Is a CRV the right tow vehicle? I don't know.
Will I be able to handle driving, dumping, finding a campsite, entertaining 2 small dogs ...?? I don't know.
I do know that iRV2 has been a blessing to resource information from. Just from searches alone I think I've analyzed almost every possibility and combination from TT to Class A. It will be a steep learning curve but everyone here seems to have the experience and a williness to share that gives me the confidence to at least try.
I've gotten so many incredulous reactions to my retirement plan that I've christened my rig the "Madness". On the up side, my daughter is wildly supportive. She's tutoring me in Instagram so I can share experiences on the road.
Thanks iRV2!!
