Depends on the price. I had a 2012 F350 4x4 that was bullet proof. Put just over 40,000 miles on it, most of which was pulling two different Montanas full time.

We have considered purchasing an RV lot in a park also. I think the key is to get one at the "right" price or be prepared to hold on to it. We had some friends that had one in Florida and used it...
