I have spent the last 9 months researching the different choices available from travel trailers, fifth wheels, camper trailers, pop-ups, to Class A Class C and Class B motorhomes.
My choices of RV and RV types below are based on the following reasons
Being that it only me I don't need that much space but I do require for some of my photography, DJ, and photobooth gear
Rear permanent bed:
I do not want to have to pull down or climb up and make my bed before I take a nap or crash for the night.
I plan on saving money and cooking all my meals so it's important to have a small kitchen and prep area.
Front Swivel Seats:
living in a small RV every inch counts and being able to utilize the extra seating will be important to have several seating choices and if I end up with guests over for a meal or whatever
One with separate shower: I know shower time in an RV is limited and most end up using Gyms or RV par facilities, but when I'm boondocking which I plan on doing a lot of I will need to take comfortable showers..................*side note being only 5' 5" makes small RV showers just right :)
Obviously, you get better mileage and in some cases torque with a diesel engine but you also pay a lot more for that. So I need the best MPG so I can travel farther at not such a high cost.
The convenience of size vs comfort:
I neede something that was practical for not only driving around cities and towns but also for some off road as I will be boondocking quite a bit so I need to make sure the vehicle will handle it. I will be more long periods of time Living in the unit so it cant be so small I go stir crazy, although I do plan on spending as much time outside taking pictures and having fun as possible!
What can I afford?. Unfortunately, I have made some bad choices and sacrificed some things like all parents do a result I do not have the best credit nore do i show on paper some great earnings. I also have no equity and have rented my entire life. well now that i got that depressing stuff out of the way......
I was able to get a loan for $50k towards a RV well they will cover me fir that amount but only for 90% of it so i have to put 10% down out of pocket. Because of the obvious i have i much higher interest rate at olamost 13%, yes OUCH is correct bonus is i can refinance like a house loan in 6 months to a year for better rates!!
