Default Sure, I could live in a big house

But why would I need a mansion when there's all the maintenance and taxes.

In Florida, there are no property taxes associated with living in a camper
trailer. There's just me and my pets so why a big house.

I can take the savings and have my money manager invest the rest. Winning!

there are property taxes associated with the property you park on which
you will pay directly or indirectly.

there are vehicle registration fees for your camper trailer

what savings? you will either have to buy a piece of property or pay
rent on someone else's property, you won't get a tax deduction for a
mortgage and your maintenance will be higher on your camper

and then there's the car/truck

True, there would be vehicle registration fees for my camper trailer: IF I
paid them. ;-)

The savings I was referring to was the savings from the small business that
I run. I'm semi-retired now.
I only work when I want to. I throw a lot of parties...now that can get
expensive, but lemonade is cheap to make in florida/

and then there's the car/truck


I drive around in a classic Mercedes that I am very proud of. It is older
so I can work on it myself. Can you say SAVINGS?

there ARE fees for your trailer: not paying them is only viable if you
don't get caught...get caught and you owe all back fees and penalties

and of course it's much easier, legally and physically, to IMPOUND your
trailer
