    I don't care about satellite and will probably remove one if installed. VPN won't work over satellite internet and I don't plan on watching much TV. I have some movies and other entertainment options for when I am stuck in. I can't work from a public wifi, so I will definitely be using mobile...

    Yeah, the price point was the biggest problem for me for what it was. I also found another option that could work. The Black Series HQ21 has some amenities, but with similar off-road capabilities. The hitch system is a bit complicated, but it articulates. It also may not allow the trailer sway...

    The x3 is pretty awesome, from the awning to the slide out kitchen, it has tons of features I would use and the bed is more comfortable than a hammock or tent in many situations. It would really be about versatility as well. I could carry more in the truck bed with that in tow. It also has tons...

    I recently started looking at school busses as I do have construction experience and could strip and rebuild the interior. I could get one really cheap, but have to research the cost of materials to finish it. I am not sure how realistic it is to take on a big project like that by myself either.

    I looked at those and they are still an option, but I have some stability concerns with that type. It would definitely have to be the right one. If, I went that route, it would be my full time RV (not a toad) because I don't need much camping ability in a toad as I already have camping gear and...

    So, I am not into stealth camping or Wal-Mart camping as it could be illegal or dangerous. Wal-Mart is a scary place in the daytime, much less at night :) I am not really concerned as much with personal safety as I have some self defense training and weapons training in addition to a carry...

    So the best definitions I have found are below. Please, let me know if any of this is wrong: Dry camping/Boondocking - simply means no hookups. This could be Wal-Mart or in the woods off-grid on BLM or forestry land etc. I guess it could also include RV parks without hookups, but I am not sure...

    Very good feedback Jackie. Thank you. I have looked at the travel trailers and 5th wheels and haven't completely discounted them, but there are some limitations and challenges I am fearful of. You hit the nail on the head with not having 2 motors to maintain. That is the one thing that keeps me...

    "Stuck on" was probably the wrong choice of words. I guess I meant the current direction I am leaning. Honestly, I have heard good things about Tiffin, Entegra and Newmar. Out of those 3 I really like the Entegra's features and quality, but it also seems to be the most expensive of the 3. Having...

    I think that is actually what I am missing. I haven't been able to put my hands on one since I started looking. I live in Nashville, TN and there are a few larger places here, but they mostly just have trailers and 5th wheel options. I didn't find a single spot with a diesel pusher aside from...

    Saw blades, really? Are you trying to disparage me or just being funny? In my research, they are all made with Styrofoam walls. What materials do you mean? I watched a video detailing the build process (). It was published by Thor, so I took it with a grain of salt. Having said that, unless they...

    The engine/transmissions ability to assist is what I don't understand about that particular scenario, but it is one I am fearful of. They teach the system you are referring to in CDL school. Slow down at the top of the hill before the downgrade, use engine brake between brake presses. Don't pump...

    I am keeping the sticks and bricks, I am renting it out for a profit. Maybe I wasn't clear about my purpose in going down this path, but that wasn't really the point of this particular thread. I have had a dream to travel the country since I was a kid and have never really been able to...

    Yes, all very good advice on doubles (thanks for the correction). It seemed daunting when I was bouncing that around in my head as well, so this helps put that to bed. I think the only way that would work well would be if I had a toy hauler and could wench the trailer into the garage. I guess I...

    So, there is lots to digest here. Thank you for all the feedback, as this is very helpful. There some redundant comments, so I will try to answer all the questions here, but if I miss one, let me know. Driving skills - I probably undersold my abilities here. I have backed trailers several...

    So, I am trying to decide what RV is right for my first one. My requirements land me in a Class A or C diesel RV. I am torn because I want to spend most of my time in nature instead of RV parks, but I work full time remotely. As such, I have to be online with power and internet M-F. My thought...

    So in the way of an update, I have been doing a ton of research. With that research came 1000 more questions. My plan for how I want to RV is mostly in BLM or forestry service land. While that may force me into a smaller rig than I would like, I would rather make some sacrifices for the...

    As mentioned in my welcome post, I am a newbie to the RV life. Actually, I am not a newbie yet as I still live in my sticks and bricks (hardy board rather), but it is the plan. Anyway, I am struggling to find the right RV for me. Because I will be alone on the road, I would rather not have a...

    Hello everyone. It has been a challenging 2019/20 as I was unemployed or underemployed for most of that time. In December, I got my dream job, which is full time remote, so I thought I would finish chasing my dream of seeing more of this continent. I started chasing this dream before Covid when...
