Wanna spend about $4000

Obviously, cheaper is better as I'm not afraid to tackle a restoration. The following is a list of what I'm looking for:
1) Dry, eg. No leaks
2) Roadworthy to DOT specifications
3) Plumbed for water and gas

1) Fridge
2) Stove
3) Sink
4) Wet bath (shower/potty)
5) Hot water heater

I am active duty Army and a lot has changed since my original post and introduction. I have had enough of debt and my enslavement to the bank. I have sold everything but for a few pairs of civilian clothes, a few guns, 1 television, and 1 vehicle. All I own is my military gear and the aforementioned things I kept. I have a campground on post that is free, has power, water, and dump stations and has no posted length of stay limitations (I called to ensure I was correct and I certainly am). I will be living in this for the better part of a year while I abolish debt from my life for good, mathematically it works. I've consulted a financial planner and he agrees. My chain of command is aware and on board.

So, now that my son sorry is out of the way, let's find this guy a camper! Trust me, I'm nervous as hell, but I know I won't fall because I have God and Country on my side.

Might help a lot if you tell us where you are located. If in Nome, Alaska, an FGRV might not do the trick (LOL)

If you have a shower on base you can drop the requirements of a shower and water heater. This would open up the market. A port a potty and grey water tank can both be dumped.

One other thought. Used FGRV's don't lose much if any at all to depreciation. The cost of financing a bit more and upgrading your purchase for a year or so is cheap rent. $10,000 @6% = $600. You could sell the trailer when you are caught up with your other finances.
Plus a trailer would lower the costs of any vacations.
