  1. How can I find this person? My network is very limited. Thank you !!!
  2. Hello again. Thank you again for all your previous replies. After much thought & consideration, and more research, I'm considering a (relatively short) travel trailer. I have a couple prospects on craigslist, and I need to go and inspect them. None of them are actually local. My RV knowledge and experience is pretty short, so I want to have someone with me who knows RVs, and can help me inspect a travel trailer for purchase. I don't know anyone offhand, and I will pay someone for this service. The two I'm looking at right now are located in Sauk City WI, and Cary IL. (I'm in Janesville WI.) I appreciate any & all responses to this.
  3. RV Trader is for sellers, not buyers. Sorry I couldn't figure out what the special combination is to quote something.
  4. Thank you again for all your replies, feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate this and this is a great forum. I've had the RV in the back of my mind for over a year, and it's difficult to make the mental shift away from it. A camper van or conversion van type thing is probably a very good idea, though at this point I'm not crazy about it. And quite unfortunately I'm not too much of a handyman, but I'm willing and able to do just about anything, with a little guidance here and there. I just need to decide what I'm going to do.
  5. Not sure exactly how to maneuver around in this forum. I can't reply to each of you individually, so I'm attempting to reply to my original post, an "umbrella reply" if you will. Thank you so much for all of your replies and feedback, and especially for telling me what I need to hear. All of this is very valuable information for me. So apparently I'm underfunded. I sure thought 20k would be enough for what I want to do. This is rather disappointing and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. Don't have a plan B in my pocket. I figured 10k for the initial purchase and repairs, modifications and additions. And 10k for everything else, including reserves. Thank you for bringing up medical care, I think I'm pretty well covered here, with Medicare plus Medicaid. I just have to find out how portable Medicaid is between states. Thank you very much, Frank
  6. Hi, I'm Frank, and I'm brand new to pretty much every aspect of all this. I've decided to become a full-time RVer, and I'm starting from scratch, vs graduating from part time. I'm looking at a driveable class B+ or C, that much I know. I've got $20k to work with, plus $1300/mo income. This needs to cover everything, from initial purchase to living on the road (so we're talking used here). I've done minimal research, enough to get an idea of just how much I need to know (about), both before and after purchase. A Lot!! I figure a couple good books may be valuable at this point, any recommendations?? No doubt there's lots of books out there. There's going to be lots of preparation, and I have some time, though the sooner I can launch the better. Thanks for reading this, and feel free to ask questions, as well as as any suggestions or advice.
