I gotta get home to answer y'all one by one. But the "C" I only guess will be more access, a big "A" again my guess has more restrictions on access due to size. To me the C seems like u can move about unnoticed.

Love guns have my share why Vermont is my first choice.

At least the east doesn't have FIRE SEASON, my 5 mile commute that takes half hour to get there in the morning then 45mins to return home lolol 5 effing miles. Beyond had my fill of 4 bux a gallon or more.

And if I get to where I think I want to go and it sux lol turn the key and drop the pedal NEXT !!

THANKS FOR THE HELP I FEEL MUCH BETTER ABOUT THIS

all caps cause why not I'm happy

And Happy Valentine's Day all

To the OP: I'm not sure from your post if you want to run from something ... or to something.

You live in the worst place in CA to be at this point in your life. CA is NOT ONLY - Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. For instance, my brother recently located a fantastic small town in CA for he and his wife, and his adult kids now live there also. They can walk to town if they want and have a large enough lot for his trailer and pickup - plus a small home in their generous backyard that he rents out for extra income. He does not have his own small business and does not work in high tech, and neither do other members of his family. The weather where this small town is located is classic CA weather - lots of sun with no snow or ice, low humidity in the summers, and (I think where he is) no mosquitoes. So there ARE places in CA that you don't have to escape from - you just have to do some research to find them.

However ... wanting to live for awhile, or long term, in an RV is a whole different thing from living in a stick house ... regardless of where that stick house might be located. Try the RV full time life if you wish, but for those who are used to and maybe enjoy living in a stick house, living instead in an RV would not be a direct substitute. Note especially that if one has any health or medical issues - I would not want to have to deal with them when living only in an RV with no "roots" for good reliable medical help.

If by "unnoticed" you think your going to be full timing by parking on the streets of a city - think again. Most cities have regulations that prohibit that and these days many homeless are using RV's and the cities have hotlines to report problem RV's. I doubt my 28 ft Class C would be any less noticeable than someones 36 ft Class A.

Smiley, I applaud and support your vision.
And what Matt collie said, don't trade one high prices rat race for another.
Although idk anything about the NE US specifically, if it's calling and you'll be comfortable there then go for it.
But if you're not totally connected to it, there's 100 different areas west of the Mississippi that are great and decent cost of living.
Getting a C seems like a good idea, but it will be difficult to not have a daily driver vehicle. Consider that.
Good luck! With your skills it'll be a successful venture.

OP like you I did the same. Got out of NJ. Taxes and liberals.. not for me. Plumber by trade . I still have to work so I sold everything and moved.

I moved to myrtle beach area. they are building like mad here.

I sold it all loaded the truck and RV and put the family with the father in law for almost a year while I lived and worked out of my RV while I found a good spot to build a home.

Place I stayed was on a lake and 450 a month.

Taxes cheap here as I pay 700 a year for the house now.

I have a young one that came with me, he is 12 now. I moved on the outskirts of myrtle because the land is cheap and the school system in aynor sc is small town feel. only 600 people live there and high school only has about 700 students.

Im actually in galivants ferry..

unlike florida where is hot all the time SC gets some cold. Its 37f right now. Summers run in the 90's and the humidity can get up there.

beach is free and its a 25 min drive from me.

air quality always runs under 30

example here is 1 acre for 15k.

I wanted to move here on this street as no HOA. But wife talked me into a different place down the road.

And example of homes already built in that school district.

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/201-B........Galivants-Ferry-SC-29544/108743022_zpid/

Home is where you make it and this is just examples of what I did.

I meet so many coming from CA. More and more are coming here...

Good luck. Anyquestions just ask.

Oh here is where I stayed

@lawrosa **** now yer makin me think. That tow behind is a monster. My thought was against towing but now seeing wat is being pulled and the rigs doing it kinda reinvents this all in my mind. The prices for these new as all get out is cheap. And if I would arrive at a property to buy it would act as a single wide home. Are the tires cheaper? Selling my truck for a bigger motor then changing the gearing is really appealing.

@ksg5000 no not bandito neighbor hood stuff just wouldn't look the the Madden bus rollin into town

Ksg5000 makes a great point about price point RVs. IMO, there's zero need to buy new or nearly new and spend a great deal of your money. Whichever route you go on RV type, you can find one in great asthetic and mechanical condition for only a small % the cost of new. Plus you're a plumber. Bout the only real things to go wrong with a RV besides the fridge is plumbing/hvac related.

Your interest in TTs should be run to ground. IMO, plumber = need a truck or Van. Not necessarily if you're working for someone, but side jobs = CASH! Hard to haul sticks of pipe in a Prius!
If you think you'll be more transient, then a Moho might be a better choice, but if you're making the RV home base in the same location/area for a while, you get more bang for your buck out of a TT and again, IMO, a tradesman needs a truck.

Again, good luck!

20 plus years ago I got the opportunity to get out of NY state. I sold the house and ran like the devil was after me. Not run actually drove in a class A with a toad.

Full timed for 10 years and then decided to buy a house in FL. It was during the bubble and all I could afford was a dump in a crappy neighborhood. So decided to spend the rest of my life in the RV. Lesson learned!

Then the bubble burst and I bought a house in FL. Sorry I did! All the people with their weird ideas and political leanings which screwed up what they want to escape are moving to FL in droves. Everything is booming, traffic is horrible, everything is crowded. Prices are increasing in leaps and bounds and will not be long before tax's will have to increase to pay for this madness. Most of quaint old FL is gone. I know several people that have abandoned FL and moved elsewhere. I am too old to move or I would.

Choose carefully, everything changes and not always for the better!
