Hi Jane. Here is my take on your plight. I've been at that crossroads. You have to first decipher just exactly how you intend to travel and then make a decision. If you think you will intend going places and parking for a few days or more to establish a base then a trailer would make sense. You could run around in your tow vehicle with ease. If you had a Bambi your tow vehicle would not have to be a huge truck or SUV and you could get by with something more nimble. If you are picking up and going from one place to the next in under a few days then a Sprinter camper van like the Airstream Interstate or similar might be a better choice. You have as much in them as a Bambi. The Sprinter allows you to actually go more places. In our travels this year so far our time has been split about 50-50 camping or staying with family, friends or in motels. Most all of our family stays (son, daughter, sister and sister-in-law) are in places where we could not take a trailer but our Sprinter fits in any parking lot or short drive-way. What I would not recommend is a motorhome bigger than a Sprinter like the View. The View or bigger then limits your mobility and you might then start looking for a toad. When you do then you have two motorized vehicles to maintain without much gain.
