I really appreciate the responses. I'm getting close to buying the RV and I'm trying to picture myself living in it. I do a lot of cross country travel alone, and there have been times when I've had to sleep in the car. I feel safer in a WalMart parking lot than camping in the woods, but I think that's because I'm from the NY metro and concrete is more familiar than trees.
I have some really dumb questions and feel free to laugh. I don't know anyone who owns an RV, so I don't have anyone to ask.
I want to use the RV to live in (temporarily) but primarily for business. I'm planning to do flea markets and sell those personalized mugs and print custom t-shirts and baseball caps. I'm planning to buy an generator/inverter just for this. I know what generators are, but how difficult is it to use them? I'm thinking about dedicating a generator to the back bedroom for the equipment, but also to keep that room cold/warm for the pups when I go out.
I want to convert the back bedroom to a photography studio and a recording studio. That means adding insulation and then sheet rocking over it. Here's my really dumb question: can I drill holes in the walls for the sheet rock and also to put in spot lights?
If I get a trailer instead of an RV with an engine (what is the correct wording for this?) how hard is it to hook the trailer up to a pick up truck? Is it something I can safely do alone?
I hope these aren't too many questions. I am so pleased to find this forum. I've felt really isolated and doing research via Google isn't the same as getting personal responses.
I really appreciate the encouragement and advice.
