Right now I'm looking at vehicle and living quarters options.
Class C motor home, class B conversion van, truck and travel trailer or truck and slide-in.
Budget of 4k for the combo, Ability to pull a 2 horse trailer is a plus.

Leaning towards a heavy 80's slide-in truck camper with a 3/4 ton 80's ford f-250 long bed.
Points for standard car insurance, no extra registration or title, no extra tires, no rusty bottom,  a good farm truck, energy efficient, and freedom of movement especially when buying.
Negative would be a tiny space, bathroom/shower seems rare in older slides and being propped on a few sticks.

I have interesting ideas about using recycled wood to make a custom fitted open garage/barn with porch and composting outhouse so it does not look like an eyesore and work around codes.

I have lived in a number of travel trailers and know what to watch out for, but have never looked at sliders up close. Anybody have experience with them?
