My wife and I have an opportunity to travel without time limit. We are selling our home (coincidental) and are interested in a 5th wheel/diesel pickup combination. We know NOTHING about this kind of purchase - not about 5th wheels or other RVs or the "right" pickup. We now live in Houston, home of PPL Motorhomes that has a decent selection of RVs, and we have inspected those. We have spoken with a private seller of an Alfa Gold who feels it has no equal. He tows it with a 1T Chevy diesel dually". Question: Where do I start research to educate myself on the brands of 5th wheels that are preferred or sought after and ditto for a pickup. I'm leaning toward a used Dodge 1 ton Cummins dually. Help!! (Have we lost our minds?) Also, if you have strong opinions about the benefits of a different type of RV, such as a class A motorhome, I would appreciate hearing them. I'm pretty sure it would be preferable to buy a diesel (VERY expensive). I would have more flexibility on the towed vehicle, and not be limited to driving a 1 ton dually every time I unhook in an RV park. Thanks in advance for your (preferably objective) comments that we can used to get started.
