I strongly suggest renting or leasing an RV and taking a few trips of 2 weeks or more unless you are experienced RVers. We knew some people who did what you are talking about with NO experience and HATED the life! The mistake cost them a lot of money and severely damaged their financial resources for retirement. If you are long-time RVers who love the life - go for it! Otherwise do as the other responder suggested and contact the people who are doing it now. They will help you get your feet wet without drowning.
