View Full Version : 2019 mallard m260 full timing

03-04-2019, 02:42 PM
Iíve always wanted to live in a tiny home/travel trailer, de-clutter my life and such. I just got a job as a police officer in a local town in TX and have to move there, the payments on the RV would be way cheaper then rent (thanks oilfield town). Trailer is 22,995 and I have 5,000$ for the down payment. Iím going to be living in the m260 full time and am worried about leaks and problems Iíve heard about as this trailer will be my home, am I just worrying myself reading some bad reviews or is this a bad idea/waste of money. I plan on doing a very thorough PDI thanks to the guide yíall have on this site. Is there anything I need to specifically look out for? Should I reseal the RV very often or tape up the seals right when I get the RV?
Thanks for any help!!!

OK,, Thanks. We are in the Southern part of Texas oil field... between San Antonio and Corpus Christi,,, George West, TX.
We were taken over by the oil industry about 5-6 years ago ,,, but it has slowed down now. We are not back to small town normal... but a lot better than it was 5-6 years ago. Population 2400,,, went to about 5000 + other towns close by... people were living everywhere then. TxDot traffic went from 2500 trucks a month through town to 25,000 a month. It is back down to ?5000? trucks a month now.
