Question Full timing in a Flatstaff

We r considering purchasing a rear kitchen Flagstaff and full timing. Anyone have any suggestions and is the Flagstaff appropriate for full time.

It all depends on your budget and on what full timing means to you. I own a Flagstaff and, in my opinion, it is a lightweight trailer with short beds, limited storage, small bathrooms, limited cargo capacity, smallish refrigerators, no washer/dryer hookup, etc,etc, etc. It is best used for limited stays and occasional longer trips. Compare and contrast it with the smallest Forest River Cardinal fifth wheel. (Download the brochures for both.) You will then understand my point.

In short, get what meets your particular needs and situation. Others cannot interpret what is best for you. One last thing, don't be fooled by pictures - they all look pretty but it is the functionality and durability that count.
