I'm still uncertain what type of RV I will end up with and wanted to get some advise from the SOLO crowd please.
I am retiring in a little more than 2 years, and my dream of hitting the road is fast approaching.
I have no family or friends holding me back and would like to travel across the states before I am to old, maybe buying a home if I find the a great place to live.
Even though I am an avid fisherman, and will probably fish every major river I find, I dont think I would enjoy spending a lot of time alone in the boonies enjoying nature like a lot of campers do.
I envision myself spending a few nights in one location, fishing and driving around sight seeing, getting the feel of small town life in each state.
But, a lot has changed since I started looking into this RV life.
You cant just pull into any park or campground without a reservation.
And, prices of motorhomes have really gone thru the roof.
The solution I came up with for the reservation problem was to learn how to boondock. For me, that sounded great until it occurred to me that If I leave my spot and drive around town or fish, my spot might be taken when I come back.
The plan then evolved into buying a TT instead of a motorhome.
Not only are TT's cheaper, and thus take less of a hit with depreciation, (not % wise but total price) but I could leave the TT in one spot and take the truck into town. (and hope the TT is hasn't been broken into when I return).
Other than leaving the TT unattended, my other concern with a TT is not being able to easily traverse a state without having to drive back to my campsite and pick up the TT. That would defiantly be a plus for a motorhome.
At this time, I have 2 paths ahead of me.
1. Small travel trailer, got my eye on the grand design 17MKE
2. Small motorhome like the Winnebago view 24d
If you were in my shoes, what path would you take knowing what you know now?
All advise is welcomed, and thank you all for all the help I have received along the way.
