  1. Hi, I have been reading through all of the topics and I am starting to second guess myself if a travel trailer is the right choice for me or not. Here is my story. I just bought some land in southeast Missouri in the Ozarks. The Ozarks has four seasons with very cold winters and hot summers, along with beautiful spring and fall seasons too. I would like to get a travel trailer and put it on my land for year-round use and have the option to take it on trips. I was thinking this route would give me more flexibility over a tiny house. I would be at the land on average 2 to 4 days per week year-round. My biggest concern is the winter temperatures and summer heat because it is my understanding that most travel trailers are designed for short term use as opposed to 4 season use on a regular basis. I am fearful of freezing issues with water lines and general heat issues because I am not sure the furnace can keep up for the entire winter. I would also have the same concern in the summer when the A/C would need to be run on a regular basis. I am increasingly concerned that most TT are not designed for the frequent use I have planned. The TT that I am currently looking at is the 2015 Forest River RV Wildwood 28DBUD. I have electric service on my land, but no water. So, I will be able to plug in the TT for as long as I want. Based on your experience is a TT the right choice for me, or should I investigate a tiny house option more? Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Andy
  2. Actually, I am getting really organized and going to put the information to good use. I load all of my notes in a program that can search on every word so in the future I will be able to find all this excellent info. It is a lot to take in, but I am feeling pretty good. Thanks!!
  3. I got a chance to visit all of the blogs and websites you mentioned and every one of them are wonderful. Thank you very much!!
  4. I checked out their blog and it looks like a great resource. Thanks for suggesting it. Tim
  5. Now I could get into riding that ATV to backcountry locations to explore and create some very unique photos!!!
  6. I wanted to thank everyone for the info. I am starting to collect these sources now and I can see how things will begin to get easier. Thanks!!
  7. I appreciate you sharing your insights and experience. The Sue's RV Blog looks very good. Thanks for pointing that out.
  8. I wanted to thank everyone for their help, ideas and tips so far. This is really good information and very helpful. Tim
  9. Thank you for the info. I am sure I am one of many that has asked this and similar questions. I am definitely searching on "boondocking" and combining that with the practical and first hand tips the group provides here. I simply want to know what I am getting into and what is and is not reasonable for doing the things I want to do. For example, if it is not reasonable to think I can move from one BLM/FS land to another following the sun, then I would rather know that now than after I convert to full time. Thanks again for your help. Tim
  10. This is incredibly helpful, thank you. I have my work cut out for me to learn all this, but I know that once I get a few experiences under my belt along with the help and support from the group here, I will be just fine.
  11. Wow!! Thank you Linda!! Just downloaded both of these and this is a game changer!! Thank you. Tim
