All are good points. It's a really tough decision. When I was retiring, my wife and I talked about selling the house, buying a motorhome/fifth wheel and traveling the country. I think that had we done so we would have went with the fifth wheel because it offered greater flexibility. Ultimately, I'm glad that we talked ourselves out doing neither. Today, if we were to do so we would still go with the fifth wheel. To me, the full-up motorhomes are like a boat or swimming pool...a whole lot of upkeep for what you get out of them and eventually they fall into disuse and you're stuck with them.
