Hi All,

My wife, Susie, and I are looking to tour the USA and Canada for a year after we retire. We are thinking ton truck and 30+ foot trailer. Used is fine but not too old with a good diesel up front. Can you advise us on a good truck and fifth-wheel combination?

That was how we started out, buying a used trailer and truck combo from one couple. It was a few years old, had all the "bugs" worked out and was well kept and clean. Gave us the chance to see if we were actually going to enjoy that life style without a huge investment.

If you have a good amount of time before you will purchase/tour--suggest you start monitoring the following RV sales sites:
RVTraderonline.com
PPLMotorhomes.com
AutoTraderonline.com for a truck
Often, a truck/trailer combo will be up for sale.
By watching these ads, you can establish the asking prices for various brands/models.
Also suggest you spend time with wife going thru new/used units for sale nearby to get an idea what fits your needs.
Welcome to the forum, ask away on any other questions.
