Hi folks
I am brand newbie here. I have done three RV lengthy vacations in my life and hope to go as a permanent lifestyle. I am therefore somewhat experienced in the RV life but not as a permanent lifestyle style.

Here's the situation;
When I can afford it I will purchase for cash a 25-30 ft travel trailer
I have a 2005 DURANGO with the small v8 I figure around a trailer weight if 5500-6000 lbs MAX.
It must be a all season trailer equipped for full time year round living.
I am single so even if I add in another person or two the TT size should be more than adequate.
I intend to purchase for cash USED when the time comes.
Also need best recommendations on the the best hitch and configuration.
I am not not rolling in dough and SS will probably be major income source unless I can get PT ZJOBS nearby the main RV campground/park.

SECOND PART OF THIS POST;
I would need recommendations as to the best and most economical LONG TERM campgrounds/RV parks in Southwest Virginia area maybe exrebding to TN or NC or SC possibly beyond that geography.

I don't mean to dump this lengthy post on everyone but all of your recommendations will certsiy be appreciated as I gear up for this monumental ligestyke change!

Thanks again for any inputs.

Bruce,

Good luck switching to full timer! Let me know how it goes as one day I hope to be full timing. I would recommend at least a 30ft for when the weather is bad it will give you a little more room especially if there may be more than one of you in the camper. I have had some long camping trips where for a few days it poured and was too cold outside, and I was glad I was in my 30ft camper and not in my old 25ft camper as it would have been too crowed for me.

I like the Equalizer hitch with sway bars. I would not travel without them.
