We have a month before we move into the fifth wheel. I have been researching and have most of my questions answered. PLUS I found a good post that compares the choices we are facing. I am still undecided, and I'm asking anyone who has arrived at their domicile decision, what are one or two smaller discoveries do you wish you had known beforehand? My decisions are between Florida, Texas, and Tennessee. SD is a distant fourth. I read Health care cost completely overshadows all other costs. I think I agree, that is for 2 years at least. I know the big points, income taxes, health insurance, RV insurance, new vehicle purchase taxes, sales tax rate. (the sales tax rate in TN is high but we have no plans to be there for long stays) I would want to bring an already converted HDT "house car" into the state. Would it be very tough to do or easy if already converted? We have relatives in TN and FL but no plans to stay with them. Thank you.

Since last Tuesday (writing this the next Monday) we have been at an absolutely gorgeous location in East Tennessee for our son's wedding. The place is called Meadow Creek Mountain Ranch and is about 15 minutes outside Parrottsville, TN. There is a small lodge, cafe (open Fri - Sun), etc., and the owners manage the rentals for several cabins in the area. There are stables with horses available for rent to ride the trails in the area (if you don't bring your own horses). There are many good hiking trails, too. The "RV park" consists of 12 FHU sites that are really hookups in the middle of a grassy pasture (they keep it mowed) with what my wife calls "to die for" views in every direction. It was an adventure getting the rig back here on the narrow, curving Tennessee roads, but very doable. The owners, Doug and his wife A.J., took excellent care of the wedding party and guests totaling about 35 people (everyone but us stayed in the lodge and cabins). Every evening after the festivities, we just headed about 200 yards down the lane behind the cafe to our home on wheels. The wedding gang all went home yesterday, but we're staying through this next weekend and taking day trips to Hot Springs, etc. It's been such a great experience I just had to spread the word. http://www.meadowcreekmountainranch.com/"]http://www.meadowcreekmountainranch.com/ Rob
