Join more help here than anywhere. My mother had that gypsy blood and was able to always find work and a place to park her RV. With low income it is very important to have a dependable rig. She was a nomad for 20 years and loved it.

I don't think you guys understand that a class A would bankrupt Denise in a New York minute. She is on a very limited income and probably cannot do much maintenance or repairs herself so she will have to pay mostly retail for those services.

Just from what I've read, maybe an older 'good condition' class B or B+ would work. Money looks like it is going to be very tight. A major repair could be devastating (?)..... only Denise can let us know.

A wet bath is not that big of deal..... thats what I have now. No issue, but I'm not full time. Also, a RV park bath-house is a good alternative if available.

Denise, hoping that your dreams can come true!

After answering several posts, Denise hasn't responded in a week. I wish her the best, however, with her very limited income, it might be beyond her ability to support the RV lifestyle.

How did this work out for you?

The difference between cramnped and cozy is between the ears. It does take some organiztion.

The key to a good bed is buying new mattress that you like.

My first TT was an old 16' Aristocrat LowLiner. Just talked to a guy down the street with an 18' tear drop TT. Tows it with a Nissan PU with a V6. I checked on line and it is doable.

It works if you do not collect rocks. I used to laugh at my MIL who overloaded their Class C. Now I look for the 'falling rock' signs for the waterfall I am building.
