    Hi and welcome...

    The first thing to get what you are after.... is your driving license..... what does it let you drive, weight wise..?

    You may be better asking the same question on our sister site = RVOC... which is a dedicated RV`ers site and club..

    There are a good few full timers on there.. driving the size rig you will need to accomodate all your needs..

    Good luck in your venture.. :thumb:

    It is one thing to want all the belles and whistles RV
    What are you licensed to Drive.
    No point getting a 12 Ton RV. Only legally to drive 7.5ton

    I came up against this
    Not. Ring able to go the HGV route I had to keep below 7.5ton

    I am able to tow 8.25ton
    My RV is 27 foot long 5.8 ton Gross weight
    If you want a slide out you add a ton to the vehicle
    So your wish list may be out of your reach
    Good luck with your future Possible full time

    I started over a year ago full timing best thing I ever did
    Yours Ian
