A tree over the road or much less trivial will stop you with high percentage. Sitting duck at a road, I don´t care how #ty it looks from the outside, in such a situation, I´m interested in whats in there, if I were a mad person in shtf days.

Interesting and timely topic - we've just begun planning a retirement haven selection trip thoughout Central & South America before settling down permanently and have been considering the same scenario. I our case it's very easy to pick the "motor home RV" over the RV trailer considering the status of the roads, sea shipping across the Darien Gap and the extreme hassle of dealing with a trailer for a trip of 25,000 miles over 3-5 years. What's REALLY caught my eye is the "Class C Toy-hauler" which has a mini-RV motor home with attached garage (2 motorcycles) - only problem is those are 30-40 feet which is pretty big for roads down south.
I've been looking into small motor homes and most of what I'm finding is over 10 years old so it's not really an option for me with import restrictions throughout latin america - but there's quite a selection in the price spread from $6K to $30K in the older vehicles.
But I'd have to say it's going to be much less problematic to use a single vehicle rather than swing a trailer, even if it is a 5th wheel.
