Looks like it is time for a MH
I have developed a problem I did not expect or anticipate. A few years ago I switched over to a fifth wheel and love it! Going to a 5er from a TT was not a mistake! I found them much easier to tow and have all the room I need for my dog and I.
I knew I was going to have to have my left foot amputated and would have to learn to walk with a prosthetic. In the last 1 and a 1/2 years I have had that done and am making out OK with it considering. I thought I might have a problem with steps on the 5er but that has not been the case. I have found that I can handle then, with or without a cane. My problem is something I hadn't taken into consideration.
It is getting into my truck that causes a problem! Damn, hadn't thought of that! I have noticed that on days where I have climbed into my truck 4 or 5 times in one day my back really starts to bother me. It is to the point that I know I am going to have a problem with a short, 5 or 6 hour, trip.
So now I am considering a MH. Not a big one, 32 to 36 footer. Going to talk to my dealer today. I am surre I can find a MH I will be happy with. I have time to look around if need be.
Now, after two hours of explaining, my question. I could sell my truck and get a small car to tow behind the MH. I have seen some towed with just two wheels off the ground, some on a small trailer. I would probably get something like a small Jeep or SUV. Is there an advantage of one trailer system over the other? Am thinking a small trailer might be easier to use, just drive up on it and lock it down, but really don't know. So looking for recommendations. I don't want to have to do this again! Really don't want to do it now but don't see much of a choice.
And please don't recommend a step up into my truck. I have that already and am still having a problem. I have tried about everything you can dream up, even a milk crate, LOL! Nothing is written in stone though, I do like my 5er!
