Ready to buy.....I think

I am contemplating purchasing a travel trailer to live in fulltime. What are the 5 most important questions to ask myself and/or the dealer before I make this decision? Would love to hear from other fulltime residents. Thank you.

From my understanding most of these units are not really built to live in fulltime. I would assume you need to ask about build quality and depending on your location winter/weather related questions would be a most important question.

Question #1) Are you crazy or a glutton for punishment and need to see a doctor?

2) Are you living in this by yourself or with someone(s)?

3) Are you doing a lot of traveling or putting it up on blocks?

4) What are you pulling this thing with?

5) Do you have a lot of extra cash to be going on a permanent 'vacation' and all of the expenses that go along with that?
