    My family and I are moving to an RV. We are going to live and hook-up to a warehouse near where we live, so it will not be a big issue to move. What are some brands to look for, and permits? I want to get more info before we buy the RV, like things to look out for.

    thanks

    Brands, as I said, are pretty much personal choice. If you are not going to travel, you definitely don't want a motorhome. As for permits, an RV is titled like your car and need to be renewed annually...if you don't move it, though, you probably don't have to renew, especially in TN. I don't know where you are. You WILL need a 30 or 50 amp plug for your electric, a water spigot to hook up your white hose, and a place to drain sewage. Good luck!

    I do not know where you live, or what your weather is like, but if it is very hot/cold you may want to look into what they used to call an "Alaskan Pack" It has extra insulation, and is well worth the money over the long run.
    Also ask them to show you how they are constructed, some are better than others. This all too is dependent on how long you plan on keeping it or using it in this manner...
    My brother has a 5th wheel, he got for a steal, he lives in it 4-5 days a week. It has a fireplace, dishwasher, washer/dryer, big shower stall and a bath tub....(he says he got it for his "baby" to be comfy in while he is at work...baby is a 100+lb golden retriever, LOL) There are a lot of good buys out there right now, people just can't justify the expense with our economy the way it is.
    Note, this is a home, and so you may be able to use it as a tax right off too, check with your tax preparer :D
