We didn't get an RV until after I retired. We love the fact that we can go when we want and for the most part stay where we want and take out two dogs. We traveled with my DW's sister and brother-in-law in our MH in our 34 ft. to Nova Scotia and back. It was only a three week trip but the coach got a little small at times if you get my drift. Shorter trips with them and separate trips with the son and his wife and granddaughter have been great and we have really enjoyed traveling with them.
Good luck with your quest for a MH for you. There are a lot of good choices both new and used.
