You have a 5th wheel or motorhome?
We currently have a 5th wheel, because it suits our needs best at the current time (legal to double tow if the middle vehicle is a 5th wheel...double tow a 4X4 behind).
I have a few friends (male and female) who travel solo...don't know if I would or not if something happened to DH. We enjoy our nomadic life and we can usually be found in remote places where we can enjoy our passion for nature.
You are a wise man not to push DW out of her stick house. If both DH and DW are not in favor of FT travel, at LEAST one of you is going to be unhappy. An issue that is at least as important is how well do you get along...remember you are going to be together 24/7...365. When we were planning to go FT, DH's co-worker asked if he had considered that he (DH) would be with his DW (me) 100% of the time, all of the time! Not everyone can handle that much togetherness.
Still having fun and not ready to settle down yet!
