  1. Before deciding, you should consider the relative crash-worthiness of a Class A versus a diesel pickup. The latter has an engine in front to absorb impact, multiple airbags, crumple zones, and certified rollover protection. No one likes to think about the worst case, but it should be part of the calculus. For my part, having been to hundreds of auto accidents over the years, I'd much rather be in the pickup.

  3. Anderson 5th wheel Hitch model #3200

    We have an Anderson and really like it. It is very easy to install and remove whenever you need the full truck bed. Also, you can hook up at nearly any angle. But, the BIG plus to the Anderson is that you absolutely can not drop the trailer on to the truck. You lower the hitch onto the ball and latch it.
  4. 5th Wheel vs Travel Trailer

    We have owned a Class A diesel pusher (Bluebird), a Jayco fifth wheel, and now an Airstream. Downsized every time we changed rigs. It's all down to personal preference. Each type has advantages and disadvantages. Here's wishing you safe travels!
  5. Quality VS Speed

    Casitas are very nice as well. I'm just done with rubber roofs and I don't care for slides.
  6. Quality VS Speed

    LOL. Absolutely no offense taken. We have had several different brands, and each and every one of them is a compromise.
  7. Quality VS Speed

    It isn't JUST the name. The fact is that the shell of an Airstream will outlast almost anything else on the road. There is no rusting, and no delamination of the shell (frame is a different story). Properly maintained, it is quite feasible to expect 30 years plus of service. That isn't always the case with RV's constructed using "more modern" materials. Yes, we make compromises in terms of space to get what we perceive as a longer lasting unit. To each their own. Happy travels!
  8. Transferring an LLC

    First, let me start off by saying this is my first post on Escapees. We are experienced RV'ers, and plan to start fulltiming in approximately 4 years. That should be enough time for my Type A mind to take care of all the pesky details........ LOL We currently have an LLC in North Carolina, but I was curious if it is possible to transfer that existing LLC to Montana for tax purposes after retirement. We have a drone photography business and there is very little equipment to move, so that isn't an issue. I'd like to take advantage of the tax structure in Montana without going to the expense of starting a second LLC, if possible.
