I guess it could be no worse than when we would take off for 6 to 8 week RV trips when the kids were young. We would take off either in a 40' motorhome with no slides (yes, there was a time when slide outs didn't exist on a RV) or later when the kids got older we did the same in a 40' Travel Supreme 5th wheel with 3 slide outs.
I mean heck, there are times that the house seems to be closing in on me and I just need to get out for awhile, it should be no different in the Wildcat.
I wish parking it at the construction lot was an option, but the deed restrictions do not allow for this. I guess I could go buy a banner and hang from the RV that reads SECURITY. The water meter is already in place, temporary electric service would have to be run before construction starts anyway, why not add a 50amp plug to the box?


So I guess I need to get busy and sell a house. Who's looking, I'm getting motivated now!!! It's been 30 seconds and no reply or interest, I thought the real estate market was improving......darn......glad I didn't borrow that $250K yet. LOL!!!
Thanks to all for your impute,

WHAT DEED RESTRICTIONS--I live in Missouri. (:>) Really, I would consult the Authorities? and try to get a temporary pass to protect my building material on site and then buy the banner for the rig. I can guarantee some of that material will get legs and run away.

This is TEXAS, things work different down here. In Missouri ranchers put up fences to keep their livestock in. Where in TEXAS, we put up fences to keep others (human and animal) out.


Same results, but different legal liability.


In truth, I don't think any of the neighbors would raise a stink, it would be the county that may try to enforce the matter. The neighbors would be my greatest security force towards the protection of the materials. Yet, I may still give it a go.

VERY GOOD about the fences, I vote for Taxas. ALL the County can do is say NO, and for a short time they may say YES, especially if you mention that the Sheriff will need to patrol that area more to protect your goods, after all you do pay taxes.

When me and the dw go back to michigan for the summer we stay in a 33ft tt with no slides. Usually 3-4 months , not really any problems. We do spend most of our time outside and camp fires at night, basically sleeping and showering. I WOULD THINK 1-2 MONTHS WOULD BE EASY.

How do you think those Alaska/Canadians types stay indoors for months. They invented the term cabin fever!!

We lived in a tiny TT more than a year when we built our house in the country. Went to grandma's house in town for laundry and an occasional meal. Worked on the house all day - slept like dead things at night. No problem.

It would be even better with this current Wildcat.
