I guess we're committed -- we've got a contract on the place, and expect to close in early May. Our game plan is, spend as few bucks as possible on a rig (my wife's son works for a repo outfit), preserve as much cash as we can to buy a couple of acres in some affordable (!) area in the wilds of northern Calif., and live in the RV while we build a home. Right now, we're considering a 5th wheel, probably about 28' - 30', pulled by a 3/4 or one-ton dually Diesel pickup. (Not a motorhome -- I'll need the truck to haul supplies as we build.) No more kids at home, we get along well, we've checked out 5th wheels at dealers and a show, think we know what we want. We've both camped before, though not together. QUESTION: What are we neglecting? Where are the hidden gotchas? Are we nuts?
