Thinking about going full time
My wife and I bought a travel trailer and fixed the water damage in it and redid the upholstery and interior last summer it was a fun project and not one that I care to do again any time soon. This is a 20 foot holiday rambler travel trailer and is great for camping and desert trips but not full timing in with a kid and 2 dogs and 2 cats. The job I just got will be sending me back to school for 6 months in Virginia after 3 months in Idaho. I can not take my pets with me to Virginia, and I don't want to have my wife and kid in a long stay hotel/apartment in Norfolk. One of my dogs is a rottweiler and makes renting next to impossible. I do not want to buy a house yet as this is a new job and will be traveling a lot the first year. One of my more logical ideas if I'm unable to find a place to rent is to sell my travel trailer put my stuff in storage and either
A: Buy a new or newer 28ft+ travel trailer stay in it until I go to Virginia then put the trailer on my parents property in CA and bring it back to Idaho and stay in it until I buy or build a house.
B: do the same as option A but sell my truck as well and buy a mid to late 90s diesel pusher and tow my wife's tahoe behind it.
C: Buy a 5th wheel toy hauler then same as A
Some things to consider
Storing my wife's tahoe is not an option, already storing 2 cars, neither is selling it.
After buying a house I plan to use what ever I get to go out atv riding and camping like I do with my current travel trailer.
My wife can hook up pull and level a trailer just fine. I will show her how to dump the tanks before I leave.
My truck is a 89 gmc crew cab dually with a built 454 and a goose neck it pulls 12k over 7% grades at 50 55 fine.
Total full timing will be about a year.
I'm looking for advice from people who have full timed in a class a and a travel trailer which do you prefer.
Also any one who has full timed in a toy hauler I would like to know how it is, is the furniture comfortable enough to live in?
