|Home, sweet home|
The reason we live in a fifth wheel is simple. When our only child Emma was born, my wife and I lived in a nice apartment for $875 + utilities. Considering that neither my wife and I had high paying jobs, and moving to an apartment with another bedroom would cost an additional $150, we sought out a less typical solution.
We could have returned to our previous living quarters at Rather Shadyville and continue paying $875 for an extra bedroom. Another option though was to buy an RV style vehicle and live near my wife's parents. We did not have a down for a house and did not want to risk the housing market with a 30 year commitment. What caused us to finance a new fifth wheel is that the monthly payment was less than $500. My wife and I could not find a less expensive solution with two bedrooms. That saved money went to raising Emma.
