We have a micro-mini (that is "small" to those not familiar) which we used for weekends, winter trips to Florida from Ohio, and our trips West. Her name is "Patience" for rather obvious reasons, including the 4 cylinder 100 hp engine. (She has served us very well!) We would not suggest it for more than a single full-timer tho.

Not a lot of individuals, let alone couples, would enjoy full-timing in the sort of RV that can get around effectively on 100 HP. (A Toyota Prius does 76 HP.)

What we're thinking is that we'll probably buy one of these: http://www.alfaleisure.com/2004_seeya/why.asp - a 2005 to 2007 model, in 2010.

But if we strike it rich in the stock market, we might instead have a chat with these people: http://www.powerhousecoach.com/

(Just for comparison, they use 330HP and 650HP diesel engines respectively.)
