living in a fifth wheel
HDFAN.....You might want to repost this in the DRV section as this is the most active part of this website.
As to your question--hopefully someone will answer with some real life situations. As to me, we have 3 small dogs and are only out 2-3 weeks at a time. I don't think it is reasonable to get a livable fifth wheel for your purposes for the amount you mention--expect to spend at least 2X more, unless you are very lucky or settle for an older unit.
