My boyfriend and I are in the process of looking for a travel trailer,we are planning on making it our main residence for a couple of years can anyone recommend a model and year that might be a decent purchase? Also we were looking into joining a camping club to get lower rates on trailer hookups, know of any good clubs to join?

Welcome!
there are so many makes and models that you will have to see what fits your needs and amount of "stuff" that you are toting along. We all are so different that you can get almost as many different answers as members here. and that's a good thing,... diversity! ;)

If you plan to move often, then yes..Camping Clubs will help. Passport America has 1/2 priced rates, but it's for only a night or two. We are members, and we usually pay for our yearly membership the first trip out each year.
Camping Clubs may not help you much for what you are wanting to do. The cheapest rates possible are those monthly rates. If you are going to stay put somewhere and work locally, when you are a yearly, permanent renter that rates is even cheaper.
Any brand trailer will do for what you want. Our neighbor's son found one for $1,000. It is a 1988 model, but was well taken care of..and looked like new inside. Even came with all linens, dishes, pots pans..etc. for that price. That is a rare find, but they are out there if you have time to search.
He's put it in a mobile home park, near the Fireman's Academy where he's attending school to become a city Fireman. FAR cheaper than an apartment, plus he loves to hunt and fish, so if he has any spare time to enjoy those sports...have trailer will travel! :)
We could help you more with answers if we knew what your plans are.
Welcome to our forum! Make yourself at home. We are happy to help you.

Welcome Allie. Think used for your trailer. New trailers/RVs, etc depreciate as much as 40% when you drive off the dealer's lot. Do you have a vehicle big enough to pull a trailer? Get out and look at everything until you find what you want. If you're going to finance it, get preapproved so you know what you can afford when you're looking. Its harder to find financing for RV's, trailers, etc than a house.
Also check out parks that allow monthly/yearly rates. Some of them are pretty ratty so I personally would find my park first.
