We also considered a Taco with a Four Wheel alum pop-up camper to provide more portability to more remote locals. We don't think the RV trailer park scene is for us (never tried it though) and I really don't like towing a trailer. Truck camper is cramped obviously but our rationale was that it is pretty well 'only a place to sleep'. Then we realized that having a truck camper as the primary vehicle for toodling about out of the campground was not ideal.
We're planning to begin some touring this year and as noted earlier, will try a combo of 'rent-for-a-month', hotel/B&B, and will even travel prepared for a bit of tent camping if conditions are favourable. This before committing to an expensive 'carry-your-house with you' solution. As noted, we can pay for a fair bit of accommodation with the cost we'd have tied up in a rig. And importantly for us, we'll have maximum flexibility. "I could go east, I could go west."
