Any suggestions for starting to RV instead of living in hotels for an on-the-road consultant?

I work on the road and move every 6-12 months to a new client site. I'm seriously considering an RV or travel trailer and would appreciate any thoughts, how to get started, things I should think about, books, and most important, finding the best "home." (i.e. who is the best mfg? (Airstream is out of my price range.))

Any advise would be very much appreciated.

I'm still evaluating but leaning toward Forest River or Keystone travel trailer with a Toyota Tundra.

From Hotels to a Home on Wheels....
by: Loz

What a fantastic idea! Besides the comfort level, you will save yourself some serious money, have good home cooked meals, etc. You don't mention what kind of tow rig you have... that will help with folks making recommendations. Some things to consider... If you will be full timing it, unless your rig (new or used) comes with a great bed, consider getting one that will give you a good nights sleep. We have a sleep number and it's fantastic. Other things to consider are what amenities will you be looking for in the campgrounds/resorts you will be staying at. Laundry facilities are a must. Do they have Wi-fi or do you have a wireless card? If not, keep in mind wireless can be expensive. Do they have a section of the park just for long term stays, things like that. If you will be in a warm climate, consider doing most of your cooking outside - it keeps the inside of your rig cooler and free from odors. Sounds like a great adventure, come back and tell us more!
