I'll give some background so you know the situation. We are a family of 5 living in 996sqft crappy 70's trailer (we own it). We've been poor for a long time so as result we have very little of any value (2 laptops, a nice tv are really it) the rest of our stuff is second hand/run down/garbage finds. My dh has been offered a job across the country that will make us much more financially stable and has growth potential that will give us a good future. We've decided to take it but that leaves the choice of how to go about making it happen. So here are the options we've come up with:

1) get a hitch put on the car and get what we can on a tow behind. Can't afford a moving van so have to get rid of most of our stuff.

2) shut the trailer down (turn off electricity, make sure food cleared out, lock it up) and have the neighbor keep an eye out for it until we can come back and get our stuff/get it sold when we've gotten settled and have money coming in.

3) donate/trash all but the essentials and start over in the new state.

4) sell trailer with all our stuff included (minus personal items)

What would you do?

I'd sell it with everything in it, or have a garage sale to sell most the stuff, and use that mpney to start over. Good luck!
