My wife and I have been considering what we will do when we retire sometime in the next 5-6 years. We keep looking at RVs, dreaming of a time when we can travel around the country. We cannot seem to agree on whether we should get a PU/fifth wheel or go with a motor home. Since I am the one that will probably be doing 99% of the driving, a fifth wheel is my choice. I like the idea of having a pick up truck for utility, plus I like the extra room a fifth wheel seems to have over a MH. My wife's primary concern with getting a MH is the fact that she can be in the unit while we are driving down the road. Knowing her, she probably intends to spend a lot of time sleeping in bed while we travel. She is also concerned with the two small dogs, thinking they would travel better in a MH, than in a PU. Does a fifth wheel hitch interfere with the utility of the pick up to any great extent? Does my wife mistakenly assume she would have the freedom to do what she wants in a MH while going down the road? She knows she can't cook and clean, etc but what about just moving around, lying on a bed or using the head? Shouldn't she be in a chair with a seat belt on? How about the dogs? Anybody have experience there?
