Hey all. This is my first post on SETT. I've been lurking (man what an awful sounding word) around the forum. There is some understandable bias towards the Rialta.In Tynan's book he mentions the Rialta gets better mileage than comparable yet smaller class B RV's (like the Roadtrek 170) because it has a smaller engine.
Here's my conundrum.I'm starting up a portrait photography business. Photography and Photoshop are like crack to me.But I'm looking to save money on rent/be mobile, and have been looking at RV's.
Here are my 3 ideas. I'd like to know what you all think:1. Get a cheap base van (~$1000-3000), DIY install a hightop, DIY install a sink, water tanks, shower, toilet, bed, and stove (another $1000-$3000) - total of between $2000 and $60002. Get a used Roadtrek 170 (seen them as low as $10,000 on eBay and Craigslist)3. Get a used 1995 Rialta (seen them as low as $12000 on eBay and Craigslist)
Of course I'd love to modify them, add solar panels, make it look better in the interior, paint the exterior white to make it stealthy, etc.
