    • One thing I have not seen mentioned is healthcare/health insurance. If the $1300/month has to include healthcare/health insurance, I suggest you do a lot of research on the issue. While the individual mandate has been eliminated, depending on your age, not having any health insurance or healthcare coverage may not be a wise decision.  On edit: Zulu posted the same time I did.
    • FOR SALE $295,000 As seen on Extreme Rv’s!!  This completely custom 5th wheel is a must see.  High end finishes throughout; including heated hardwood floors, granite surfaces, residential refrigerator and full size bath area with large shower.  Tons of storage inside and out.  This unit is in Fort Lauderdale, Florida if you would like to take a tour.   Click link below for more photos and full details.  https://www.rvtrader.com/myt/account/update?token=79ccea119ee3de38ce46f4f4738fb15e
    • If you know where the den is, get some smoke bombs and a shovel.
    • What do you have for health insurance?
    • Welcome to the forum! A not so new pickup truck with shell on back, lots of storage room pulling a not so new 20-30ft travel trailer a possibility?  With this set-up, drop camper and have independent transportation.  In your price range I think your going to need the ability to turn a wrench on minor repairs.  A repair account as mentioned would be needed.  Boon-docking is a possibility for you, some or most campgrounds offer basic no frills camping spots.  Work-camping would certainly be a very good option (I have no personal experience in this but lots on here do).  A light (small) solar setup, or small genset would give you basic but limited power.  Big set-ups for lots of power = not cheap.  You can get a genset little under/over 1k, or a 200 watt suitcase solar panel ($5-600 or so) and a couple batteries (don't go cheap here) for about the same range total.  I'd vote the solar depending on where you want to stay, some campgrounds don't like the noise.  But then, if you stay at a campground in a camper you can connect to power/water/sewer but pay for the full hook-ups over bare camping. Just a thought, you can listen or ignore, I could be out in left field as usual... LOL  You say you have ~20k to work with.  I'd try to spend only $15k and stick the $5k left in the bank as an emergency repair fund, it will happen eventually.   That would tend to put you in an older vehicle range, but if the newer one you purchase needs repair, you could be stuck in the middle of ? with no way to repair said vehicle, then what? I see older class-As (lots more internal space) in your price range too but would need lots of .... wrenching ability.  It all boils down to, do what makes you happy! IMHO
