Sorry to hear of your engine issues.

I wouldn't be in too big of a hurry to give up the full time traveling life, unless you were getting close to the end anyway.

First of all, if you are even considering purchasing a sticknbrick that means you have funds set aside and a decent income. If you didn't obviously you wouldn't be thinking of buying in such an inflated housing market that exists currently. So if you are financially okay then there are other options maybe to consider.

As someone suggested you could live in your MH until the repair parts were at the shop, then maybe you would only be displaced for a week or two. Another option could be move in with friends or family, or even an extended road trip in your toad visiting.

Good luck with whatever you decide and let us know.

I'd think a short term condo rental would be better than having it towed around

We may never hear back from them. I still think they had a "knee jerk" reaction to their engine issues and should have considered additional alternatives. But to each their own. RVs are not extremely high quality products and anyone full time traveling in one has to accept the fact that things will break and you will have issues along the way.

I can understand, every time something breaks (which seems to be about once a month) my wife and I question the full-time lifestyle. I feel like we are in the same boat, that being one catastrophic bill/RV issue from just giving up on the full-time life and maybe finding a small trailer/park model at a park and then part-timing in a smaller RV. I don't think I could ever give up RV'ing completely, but working and full-time living on the road full-time is definitely a challenge.

I wish you well on whatever future endeavors you do and glad that you were able to get somewhere safely. Hopefully you can be back camping or RV'ing again in the future when things calm down a bit.
