Is there any point in having an apartement in your home town? Because I would be getting ripped off paying something like 400 if I'm never there. I think the best thing to do is invest in a house or trailer.

If I didn't care to have a place of residence then I would get a po box or something like that in a state like tx. Or nv. Where there is no state income tax. Just food for thought ;)

And 2 answer your question I personally have 2 mortgages on 2 homes.

I have 1 home, but 0 mortgage, because I was able to pay off my home recently. The same with the vehicles. I just need to pay the annual Property Tax.

If you haven't started trucking yet, I'd leave it for a month or two till you're settled in before you up sticks and move out, but it's a great savings vehicle to live in the truck and use a motel or family on your down time.

I just vacated my apartment. I'm going to school in 10 days. I'll spend home time with family. I don't plan to get another place till I figure out where I really want to settle.

That's good thinking.

I think the idea of giving up the apartment and spending home time with family makes sense instead of shelling out $400 for not being there. If you could, maybe you could find somewhere you could negotiate with the landlord for lower payments due to your absence.
