I am interested in full timing and wondered what is the most successful type for the job.

Any rectangle on wheels works fine.

38' '02 Newmar Kountry Star DP w/2 slides. Set your budget, check out lots of rv's - class a & c's, 5th w, tt - find one that fits your needs - florrplans are very important - and no one set answer as to the "best" - budget and floorplan - top priorities.

You're asking a loaded question. There's a wide variety of people of various size, with particular needs and desires, from limited to unfathomable financial resources who engage in the full time lifestyle. Due to those circumstances, I've visited with people who full time in pop-ups, diesel pushers and virtually everything in between.

While speaking of circumstances, things change. My current full time rig comes closest to meeting my needs today. Upon retirement next summer, many things will change! While needs and wants have been formulated through previous experience, a different RV will come closer to serving me well in retirement.

Obviously, certain RVs aren't going to work for you and nothing is going to be 100% perfect. But, I would look at MoHos and 5ers, spend a great deal of time in them and look at the fit and finish. Check head room and space. Lie in the bed... sit on the "john", stand in the shower. Enough kitchen counter space? How about drawer space? Furniture can always be changed out. How long will the average work contract last before moving to the next one? 13 weeks, 6 months? Will a snow bird rated camper suffice or will you need a robust 4 season coach? Do you mind tooling around in a dually as a daily driver or do you prefer a 4WD jeep. Just some thoughts! Good luck.

We have a 40'Fuzion 383 Touring Edition 11 toyhauler. We chose a toyhauler for the room and we wanted to take our Harley TriGlide with us to ride when we were parked. Works great for us and with 3 axles will handle the weight also set up for dry camping incase the need arises, be prepared. George

Fourwinds 29Q - no slides.

I spend the winters at 43ยบ N Latitude and it's nice and warm inside when the outside temp is well below zero.
